    GPU-Z is not available for Linux but there are some alternatives that runs on Linux with similar functionality. The best Linux alternative is CPU-X (by X0rg), which is both free and Open Source. If that doesn't suit you, our users have ranked more than 25 alternatives to GPU-Z and six of them are available for Linux so hopefully you can find a suitable replacement. Other interesting Linux alternatives to GPU-Z are Hardinfo (Free, Open Source), Sysinfo (Free, Open Source), hwinfo (Free, Open Source) and CPU Frequency Selector (Free, Open Source).
