Hi, Is there any way for my VC++ code to query the below basic parameters of Intel Graphics solution (9x5 let's say)? -GPU name -number of global video memory -shared memory -gpu clock rate -gpu name -video driver version -version of DirectX support -bus width Please give me some hint or advice. Code sample is welcome. Feel free to forward appropriately if this is not the correct sub-forum for this question. Thanks Andy

Hi Andy,

You can get some of the information using DX SDK calls.

For example, theDXGI_ADAPTER_DESC provides the information on GPU name, vendor id, devide id, and video memory.

And, theD3DADAPTER_IDENTIFIER9 structureprovides information like device name, driver version and such.

Cheers,

in addition, in the Samples->C++->Misc folder you might want to look at:
DXDiagReport
DXDiagOutput
VideoMemory.

they show you how to get information similar to what DXDiag provides, programmatically.
