MSI Afterburner logo (75 pix)MSI ontwikkelt samen met RivaTuner het programma Afterburner, een tweakprogramma voor grafische kaarten. Hoewel MSI er zijn naam aan verbonden heeft, is het programma ook te gebruiken met producten van andere fabrikanten, al zal dan niet altijd alle functionaliteit beschikbaar zijn. Afterburner kan verschillende waarden van de grafische kaart bijhouden en weergeven, zoals kloksnelheid, spanning, temperatuur, ventilatorsnelheid en framerate. Daarnaast is het mogelijk om de kaart over te klokken en verschillende profielen aan te maken, waartussen eenvoudig kan worden gewisseld. Met Predator kan de video-uitvoer gecaptured en gedeeld worden. Na een lange reeks van bèta's hebben de ontwikkelaars de final van versie 3.0.0 uitgebracht en hierin zijn de volgende veranderingen en verbeteringen aangebracht:

MSI Afterburner version 3.0.0
  • Ported to new VC++ compiler, new core and skin engine libraries with better extendibility
  • Added Bonaire, Curacao and Hawaii graphics processors family support
  • Added core and auxiliary VDDCI voltage control for reference design AMD RADEON R9 290/290X series graphics cards with IR3567B voltage regulators
  • Added core voltage control for reference design AMD RADEON R7 260/260X series graphics cards with NCP81022 voltage regulators
  • Added core voltage control for reference design AMD RADEON 7790 series graphics cards with NCP81022 voltage regulators
  • Added NVIDIA GPU Boost 2.0 technology support for NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan graphics cards:
    • Added slider for temperature limit adjustment
    • Added option for linked power limit and temperature limit adjustment
    • Added option for temperature limit prioritizing
    • Added maximum voltage adjustment
  • Improved NVAPI access layer architecture with better extendibility
  • Improved AMD ADL access layer with Overdrive 6 support to provide compatibility with future AMD GPUs
  • Added NCP4206 voltage regulators support to provide compatibility with future custom design MSI graphics cards
  • Improved voltage control layer architecture provides better compatibility with automatic voltage control on NCP4206 voltage regulators
  • Improved hardware monitoring module architecture with better extendibility
  • Added voltage control mode selection option to the "Compatibility properties" section in "General" tab. Now you can toggle between reference design, standard MSI and extended MSI voltage control modes
  • Added "boost edition" / "GHz edition" GPU type selection option for reference design AMD RADEON 7970 and AMD RADEON 7950 based graphics cards to "AMD compatibility properties" section in "General" tab
  • Added GPU usage averaging algorithm for Overdrive 6 capable AMD GPUs. Now displayed GPU usage is being averaged by sliding window to smooth GPU usage artifacts occurring due to bug in AMD ADL API on AMD Sea Islands GPU family
  • Added optional unified GPU usage monitoring path via D3DKMT performance counters. You may tick "Enable unified GPU usage monitoring" option in "AMD compatibilities properties" in "General" tab as a workaround to replace native AMD GPU usage monitoring if it is working improperly (e.g. broken GPU usage monitoring in AMD ADL API for AMD Sea Islands GPU family)
  • Added temperature limit, power limit, voltage limit, maximum overvoltage limit and GPU utilization limit graphs to hardware monitoring module for release 320 and newer NVIDIA driver. The graphs help you to understand the reasons of realtime performance limitations (e.g. limiting performance due to reaching power target) on GPU Boost compatible graphics cards
  • Added framebuffer, video engine and bus controller usage graphs for NVIDIA graphics cards to hardware monitoring module
  • Added generic NVAPI videomemory usage monitoring for NVIDIA graphics cards unattached to Windows desktop (e.g. dedicated PhysX accelerators)
  • Updated power reporting for release 320 and newer NVIDIA drivers. Now MSI Afterburner reports normalized total power according to NVIDIA recommendations
  • Added CPU temperature monitoring (Intel Core 2 and newer Intel CPUs only), CPU usage, RAM usage and pagefile (commit charge) usage graphs to hardware monitoring module
  • Added CPU info to "i" window
  • Added basic monitoring for unsupported GPUs (e.g. Intel integrated iGPUs):
    • Now GPU usage and videomemory usage can be monitored and displayed in On-Screen Display on any GPU, so you can use MSI Afterburner to monitor graphics subsystem on laptops without dedicated NVIDIA/AMD GPU
    • Extended GPU usage monitoring for Intel integrated iGPUs. You can independently monitor usage of main GPU execution unit (labeled as "GPU usage") and MFX unit (labeled as "VID usage" to keep NVIDIA-styled GPU domains naming)
  • Now full list of currently active 3D processes is being displayed in On-Screen Display server info section in "i" window instead of one active 3D process before
  • Fixed GUI issue causing vertical slider to be rendered improperly in advanced application properties window under certain conditions
  • On-Screen Display text length limit has been extended from 256 bytes to 4 kilobytes
  • Added predefined fan speed curves list to the "Fan" tab in advanced application properties. The list allows you to select default curve on all cards and additional pre-defined curves (such as silent or performance fan speed curve) on some custom design MSI graphics cards
  • Added core voltage control for reference design NVIDIA GeForce GTX 7x0 series graphics cards
  • Added core voltage control for reference design AMD RADEON 7990 graphics cards with VT1556 voltage regulators
  • Added core voltage control for reference design AMD RADEON 7870 XT graphics cards with CHL8225 voltage regulators
  • Added core voltage control for cost down reference design AMD RADEON 7770 graphics cards with uP1609 voltage regulators
  • Added limited core voltage control for reference design AMD RADEON 7850 graphics cards
  • Added secondary voltage control loop support for CHL8214 voltage regulators to provide compatibility with future custom design MSI graphics cards
  • Improved skin engine, now skinned slider controls support curved paths defined by alpha channel. Skin format reference guide has been updated to v1.6 to document new slider types support
  • Fixed single tray icon mode functionality under Windows 8
  • Improved single tray icon mode handling. It is no longer necessary to restart application when toggling single tray icon mode
  • Now unofficial overclocking mode and official clock limits extension command line switch (XCL) for AMD graphics cards are accessible via GUI in "General" tab in "AMD compatibility properties" section
  • Added "Disable ULPS" option to "AMD compatibility properties" section in "General" tab
  • RestoreAfterSuspendedMode configuration file switch is no longer undocumented, now it is enabled by default and accessible via GUI in "General" tab in "Compatibility properties" section
  • Added "Reset display mode on applying unofficial overclocking" option to "AMD compatibility properties" section in "General" tab. This option can be used as a workaround for infamous flickering issue, caused by bug in AMD driver
  • Now MSI Afterburner displays path to driver registry key in "i" window
  • Now MSI Afterburner displays voltage regulator model and location information in "i" window
  • Now MSI Afterburner displays RivaTuner Statistics Server installation path and server version information in "i" window
  • Added French and Turkish localizations
  • Recompiled kernel mode driver to bypass false positive in driver verifier
  • Added workaround for missing tray icon when starting application while EXPLORER.EXE is not responding
  • Application tray icon is now being restored after restarting EXPLORER.EXE
  • Build number is now displayed in "i" window and in application tray icon tooltip
  • Localizable installer files for third party translators are now included in distributive in .\SDK\Localization\Installer folder
  • Now power users can display graphs in hardware monitoring window in multiple columns via configuration file
  • Framerate slider limit in "Videocapture" tab has been extended from 100 FPS to 120 FPS
  • Now flashing camera icon is being displayed in the top left corner of monitoring window when video is being captured
  • Added "Use dedicated encoder server" option to "Videocapture" tab
  • Added prerecording settings to "Videocapture" tab. You can select one of the following prerecording modes:
    • Prerecord to a temporary file. This mode suits best for prerecording long videos (e.g. 10 minutes or more of H.264 video) or for prerecording videos with low compression ratio (e.g. lossless Lagarith video)
    • Prerecord to RAM. This mode suits best for prerecording short videos (e.g. a couple minutes of H.264 video) and it provides a bit better performance than prerecord to file. Also, unlike prerecord to file, prerecord to RAM minimizes writes so it can increase the lifetime of SSD if you plan to use the prerecording frequently
  • Added "NV12 compression" to the list of available video formats to "Videocapture" tab. This format can be used to replace uncompressed video recording with fixed 2x compression ratio at the cost of some color information loss caused by RGB to YUV 4:2:0 color space conversion
  • Added "External plugin" to the list of available video formats to "Videocapture" tab. External plugins provide hardware accelerated H.264 video encoding support for Intel QuickSync, NVIDIA NVENC and AMD VCE platforms
  • Improved DirectInput hotkey handler minimizes the risk of losing hotkey functionality until application restart under certain conditions
  • RivaTuner Statistics Server has been upgraded to version 6.1.1:
    • The server is no longer being distributed as a part of client applications like MSI Afterburner and EVGA Precision. Now it comes under generic RivaTuner Statistics Server name with own installer and can be optionally installed when necessary. The clients will automatically hide any server dependent functionality (such as On-Screen Display, framerate monitoring, automatic 2D/3D profiles management, screen and video capture and so on) when the server is not installed
  • Now RivaTuner Statistics Server installer is being started by MSI Afterburner installer to make installation process easier for beginners. The server distributive is being copied to .\Redist\RTSSSetup.exe during MSI Afterburner installation, so you may always install it later if necessary

Voor de gebruikers van de ingebouwde OSD functie [op het scherm FPS/Ghz/temp ed uitlezen] is HWinfo een leuke combinatie met Afterburner.
Tip: Zet dan in HWinfo alleen die opties aan om te monitoren die je gebruikt. Als je alle opties monitored met o.a. alle moederbord / chipset functies dan kan hij nogal eens wat meer processortijd snoepen. In ieder geval het geval bij mijn Asus Z77...

Edit: de bijgelverde rivatuner geeft ook cpu/gpu temp weer als je deze in Afterburner aanvinkt als OSD. HWInfo is voor mij i.i.i.g niet meer nodig.

Als je alle functies van HWinfo in de ODS aanzet zit je gehele scherm vol met gegevens en dan geloof ik goed dat dit CPU performance vraagd, ik zelf heb enkele voor mij belangrijke meet functies aan en merk niets van een CPU drop met mijn ouwe i5-2500k

Verder geeft zover ik weet geeft de ODS in afterburner alleen maar de GPU gerelateerde onderdelen weer. :?

Voordeel van HWinfo is dat je gericht kunt kijken naar de botllenecks tijdens een activiteit bv gamen of zoals in mijn geval met mijn opencase het tijd wordt om de zaak weer eens schoon te maken. O-)
Nee hoor, in Afterburner kun je zelfs afzonderlijke CPU-cores RAM-usage Frametijd, beeldverversing en pagefilusage etc. monitoren!

Bij compatibiliteits-eigenschappen en daarna bij toezicht-lijstje gekeken? HWInfo is in principe nergens meer voor nodig.. Alleen ik gebruik Fraps voor FPS omdat niet alle 64-bits applicaties door Rivatuner worden geaccepteerd.
Als het goed is zouden 64-bits apps met de laatste versie van RTSS wel worden gepakt.
Added CPU temperature monitoring (Intel Core 2 and newer Intel CPUs only), CPU usage, RAM usage and pagefile (commit charge) usage graphs to hardware monitoring module

Ik lees het nu, maar dit is dus toegevoegd in de laatste 3.0.0. versie die ook nu op mijn PC staat. Zelf werk ik nooit met Beta versies.
Leuke tooltjes zijn het altijd. Straks ff binnenhalen.
De lang verwachte "stabiele" release van afterburner. Vind het gek dat ze dezeniet eerder uitbrachten. De beta's liepen al zo ver voor op de 2.X versie. En van de beta's heb ik nooit stabiliteits problemen gehad.
Binnenkort maar ff installeren, kan ik mijn 750 ti tot zijn maximum gooien. Zitten trouwens veel mooie features in, die ik ga proberen.
Altijd lekker, even die extra turbo toevoegen aan je GPU (Y)
