MSI ontwikkelt samen met RivaTuner het programma MSI Afterburner, een tweakprogramma voor diverse grafische kaarten van MSI. Het kan verschillende waarden van de grafische kaart bijhouden en weergeven, zoals kloksnelheid, spanning, temperatuur, fansnelheid en framerate. Daarnaast is het mogelijk om de kaart over te klokken en verschillende profielen aan te maken, waartussen eenvoudig kan worden gewisseld. De ontwikkelaars hebben versie 2.1.0 uitgebracht en deze voorzien van de volgende, tamelijk imposante lijst met aanpassingen:

MSI Afterburner v2.1.0
  • Added AMD Barts and Cayman graphics processors family support
  • Added core voltage control for reference design AMD RADEON 6970 graphics cards with CHL8228 voltage regulators
  • Added core voltage control for reference design AMD RADEON 6970 graphics cards with VT1556 voltage regulators
  • Added core voltage control for reference design AMD RADEON 6950 graphics cards with CHL8214 voltage regulators. Please take a note that voltage control is not supported on AMD RADEON 6950 graphics cards flashed with AMD 6970 BIOS
  • Added core voltage control for reference design AMD RADEON 6950 graphics cards with VT1556 voltage regulators. Please take a note that voltage control is not supported on AMD RADEON 6950 graphics cards flashed with AMD 6970 BIOS
  • Added core voltage control for reference design AMD RADEON 6870 graphics cards with CHL8214 voltage regulators
  • Added core voltage control for reference design AMD RADEON 6850 graphics cards with CHL8214 voltage regulators
  • Added core voltage control for reference design NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 series graphics cards
  • Added core voltage control for reference design NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 series graphics cards
  • Added core voltage control for reference design NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti series graphics cards
  • Added core voltage control for reference design NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti series graphics cards
  • Added core voltage control for reference design NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 SE series graphics cards
  • Added delayed fan speed readback mechanism to improve compatibility with fan control on GeForce GTX 580 series
  • Added low-level fan tachometer monitoring for RV7xx and newer AMD graphics cards using on-die GPU tachometer
  • Fixed low-level memory clock monitoring for some mid-range AMD RADEON 5xxx series graphics cards using QDR control related power saving technologies
  • Added core, memory and auxiliary PEXVDD voltage control for custom design MSI N465GTX Twin Frozr II Power Edition series graphics cards with uP6218+uP6262 voltage regulators
  • Added core, memory and auxiliary PEXVDD voltage control for custom design MSI N450GTS Cyclone Power Edition series graphics cards with uP6262 voltage regulators
  • Added core voltage control for custom design MSI N450GT DDR5 series with uP6262 voltage regulators
  • Added core and memory voltage control for custom design MSI N430GT and N420GT series with uP6262 voltage regulators
  • Fixed typo in hardware database causing regular MSI N470GTX and MSI N470GTX Twin Frozr II graphics cards to be detected as MSI N470GTX Twin Frozr II Power Edition series and causing voltage control to be locked
  • Added I2C bus index filtering in uP6262 voltage regulators detection code to prevent voltage regulator detection conflicts with DDC on the systems with some specific monitor models. The conflicts resulted in displaying fake +10/+20/+30 voltages on MSI GeForce N460GTX Hawk series
  • Added power user oriented configuration file switch for adjusting retry counter for external I2C voltage regulators detection. Retry counter is set to 3 by default
  • Fixed issue in the context help system causing it to display wrong floating tooltips when hovering cursor over the controls under certain conditions
  • Added ability to assign a hotkey for toggling the On-Screen Display Server blocking. This hotkey is aimed to provide a simple way for diagnosing the server related compatibility issues
  • Changed default fan speed curve for user defined software automatic fan speed mode
  • Now MSI Afterburner uses previously undocumented power user oriented DirectInput based hotkey handler. New hotkey handling mechanism drastically reduces hotkey response time in applications heavily loading CPU. Please take a note that new sophisticated hotkeys handling can cause some system security applications (e.g. KIS proactive defense module) to warn you about possible keylogging threat
  • Fixed issue in hotkey handler causing it to detect false keystrokes under certain conditions
  • MSI On-Screen Display server has been upgraded to version 4.0.1. New version gives you the following improvements:
    • Reduced On-Screen Display rendering related CPU performance hit due to more effective geometry batching in On-Screen Display 3D rendering mode codepath
    • Now MSI On-Screen Display server supports RivaTuner's user extendable localization system
    • Screenshot compression library SaveImage.dll has been replaced with more progressive SaveMedia.dll library providing unified screenshot and video encoding engine
    • JPEG screenshot quality settings are no longer power user oriented and can be adjusted directly from the client application GUI
    • Screen capture implementation is now multithreaded to minimize the impact on the game performance when saving screenshots on the systems with multicore CPUs
    • Text indication of screen capture events in the On-Screen Display has been replaced with graphics progress indicator
    • Fixed issues causing the On-Screen Display to be rendered in wrong colors in 3D mode in some multitextured Direct3D9 applications (e.g. several bumpmapping related samples from DirectX 9 SDK)
    • Updated profiles list
  • Added high performance realtime in-game video capture support by means of built-in video capture engine of new MSI On-Screen Display server. You no longer need to waste your money on purchasing an additional video capture application, now MSI Afterburner is providing such functionality to everyone and absolutely for free! The key features of video capture engine are:
    • Realtime video capture support for any Direct3D8, Direct3D9, Direct3D10, Direct3D11 and OpenGL applications
    • Queued frame capture algorithms are aimed to minimize the graphics pipeline stalling caused by transferring pixel data from GPU to CPU and keep high and smooth in-game framerate while video capture is in progress
    • Multiple video capture formats: uncompressed video capture for the systems with high performance disk I/O subsystems, two different compression modes for the systems with both mid-range and high performance multicore CPUs
    • Multithreaded SIMD optimized encoders are aimed to provide the maximum compression performance on modern multicore CPUs with SSE2 instructions support
    • Various options allowing you to tweak video capture performance on your system: customizable target video framerate, customizable target video quality, controllable multithreaded optimization and various frame downsampling modes
    • Audio stream capture and additional video capture related enhancements are coming in future versions
  • Now screen capture events are also indicated by notification messages in the hardware monitoring window
  • Added option allowing hiding On-Screen Display on captured screenshots and videos
  • Reduced hardware polling time on multi-GPU systems due to cached GPU context switching in hardware monitoring module
  • Improved hardware monitoring shared memory layout v2.0 introduces additional data source identification related fields and new GPU descriptors array. Third party developers may refer to updated sample code included in the SDK
  • Added new control shared memory interface for future MSI software products integration with MSI Afterburner. New shared memory interface allows third party applications to program graphics card clock freqnecies, voltages and fans via MSI Afterburner. Such shared memory interface allows developing a lot of useful external applications, for example smartphone overclocking client applications connected to the PC server and remotely controlling the hardware via MSI Afterburner and so on. The SDK included in MSI Afterburner distributive contains open source sample demonstrating the access to new control shared memory from a third party application
  • All synchronization mutexes have been moved from local to global namespace
  • Now Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 runtime libraries are included in distributive and installed with software
  • Hardware database is now configured to force fan duty cycle monitoring to be performed less efficient AMD ADL SDK path on AMD RADEON 4870 X2 and HD 5970 series graphics cards
  • Changed way of unlocking unofficial overclocking on AMD graphics cards
  • Added alternate unofficial overclocking path allowing keeping PowerPlay active on some modern ASIC families during overclocking
  • Fan control settings are now being forcibly reapplied after changing the clocks via unofficial overclocking path to bypass bug in AMD driver causing the fan control settings to be reset to defaults during programming PowerPlay table
  • Fixed issue in uP6266 voltage control codepath causing setting wrong fixed 0.920V voltage instead of desired one when "Force constant voltage" option is enabled
  • Localization reference guide documentation has been updated to v1.2
  • Various typo fixes in different language packs

diverse grafische kaarten van MSI.
Voor de duidelijkheid alle grafische kaarten van ieder merk
Werkt inderdaad prima op mn XFX HD 5770.
@vPro
Thnx man, net de installer gecancelled om te vragen of het wel op mijn Sapphire gaat werken. Toch maar doorzetten :).

De voorganger werkte ook al perfect!

Zal deze eens downloaden en checken of ik de kaartjes hoger opgekrikt kan krijgen.
voltage control vvoot de GTX460 toegevoegd :) klinkt goed
voltage control toegevoegd op de GTX 460 SE, de standaard GTX 460 was al sinds 2.0 bruikbaar via Afterburner.
"Added high performance realtime in-game video capture support by means of built-in video capture engine of new MSI On-Screen Display server."

Hmm, hoe goed is deze nieuwe feature? Een fraps killer of..?
Nog geen fraps killer, en er word tevens geen geluid opgenomen.
Toch jammer dat deze tool zich alleen richt op hardwarezaken zoals fan- en voltage monitoring en setting. Geen tweaks zoals je die in RivaTuner wel had... RivaTuner is nu verouderd en herkent de GTX 570 niet.

Er zou nog wel een nieuwe RivaTuner komen, maar ik vrees dat de programmeur het te druk met Afterburner heeft om nog iets met RivaTuner te doen... :'(

Ik heb vroeger ook RivaTuner gebruikt, maar Afterburner is een hele verademing qua gebruiksvriendelijkheid, terwijl het alles ondersteunt wat ik nodig heb. Wat mis je in Afterburner wat RivaTuner wel kan?
dat is een lange changelog :P
waarom moet dit programma nu weer 24MB groot zijn? Zonder de nogal gelikte GUI en met kombustor als aparte download zal de totale grootte een stuk kleiner kunnen, lijkt mij. Nu is 24 MB niet veel, maar ik ben eigenlijk sinds utorrent een beetje fan geworden van kleine programmatuur zonder gigantische aandacht aan GUI en meer aandacht aan functionaliteit.

edit: overigens wel een programma met help en tips bij hoveren. Pluspuntje verdient :)

Ik gebruik dit proggie al ruim een jaar op mijn GTX 275 en nooit problemen gehad. Doet het altijd uitstekend!
Eigenlijk is voor een pure overclock Afterburner veel beter dan Rivatuner. Afterburner vind ik veel duidelijker, mooier en overzichtelijker, maar soms had Rivatuner nog wat meer functies. Ik zie graag dat er in Afterburner nog een paar Hardware-tweak-functie's komen zoals we die hadden in Rivatuner!

Op dit item kan niet meer gereageerd worden.
