Software Update: MSI Afterburner 4.1.1




MSI has released version 4.1.1 of Afterburner, a tweak program for graphics cards. Although MSI has his name attached to it, the program can also be used with other manufacturers’ products, although not all features will be available. Afterburner can track different values ​​of the graphics card and display, such as clock speed, voltage, temperature, fan speed and frame rate. In addition, it is possible to clock on the card and to create different profiles, between which can be easily exchanged.

MSI also has a number of other tools voice. Thus, with Predator recorded the video output and are shared, and there is a benchmark program called Kombustor. If you install the Afterburner remote server, it is possible to adjust the settings of the card via an Android or iOS app without having to leave your game. The changelog for this release is as follows:

Changes list includes:
Added core voltage control for reference design NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN X series graphics cards
Added core voltage control for reference design NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti series graphics cards
Now core voltage control via NCP4206 is unlocked on reference design NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 and
NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN series graphics cards When extended MSI voltage control mode is selected
Added new thirdparty voltage control mode. Traditionally we provided on voltage control reference design graphics cards or on custom design MSI graphics cards only. However, rich set of PWM controllers supported by MSI Afterburner core Allows Implementing voltage control on many third-party custom design graphics cards as well. With this version we introduce original concept or user extendable voltage control mode-allowing experienced users to get access to programmable MSI Afterburner core, get access to a full range of voltage controllers supported by it, create custom hardware database and program MSI Afterburner to providence voltage control on many third-party custom design graphics cards. Third party voltage control mode Requires Populating and downloading third-party hardware database, please visit MSI Afterburner discussion forums to help adding your custom design cards to the database or download the latest database version.
Fixed bug causing application to crash when “layered with alpha” skin composition mode is selected, application is minimized to system tray and properties are accessed via the context menu or detached monitoring window
Improved hardware monitoring module:
Added negative temperatures monitoring support for NVIDIA GPUs
Fixed extended CPU family and model detection to address an issue with incorrect maximum junction temperature (Tjmax) detection on some Intel CPUs
Now power users can override the maximum junction temperature (Tjmax) via configuration file if Necessary
Added temperature monitoring for AMD Family 10h – 16h microarchitecture CPUs. Please take a note thatthis hört functionality is experimental and disabled by default. Power users can unlock AMD CPU temperature monitoring through [CPUHAL] section in the configuration file if Necessary
Added correction formulas support. Now you can apply a custom correction formula to any data source in hardware monitoring module. Correction formulas can be useful to apply temperature offsets to custom temperature sensors if Necessary (eg set formula to “X + 20”) display effective memory clock Instead of base clock (eg set formula to “X * 2”) display per- GPU memory usage Instead of total memory usage on Crossfire systems (eg set formula to “X / 2”) and many, many more.
Hardware Monitoring Log file format HAS BEEN upgraded to v1.5 to providence correction formulas support.
Added “CPU load” graph to multicore CPUs. The graph is displaying the average CPU load across all CPU cores.
Added “CPU temperature” graph to thermal monitoring capable multicore CPUs. The graph is displaying the maximum CPU temperature across all CPU cores
o Added connection retry counter to Logitech LCD monitoring module. Now MSI Afterburner stop trying to connect to Logitech LCD after some failed connection Attempts Instead of trying to connect to it in endless loop. Retry counter implementation is Aimed to bypass the problem with GDI resource leak in Logitech LCD API-which could cause application to crash after some period of time When output to LCD is enabled on the system with no Logitech LCD connected to it
Added dynamic output format for min / max limits displayed on the graphs. Now MSI Afterburner uses integer output format for limits if the range between minimum and maximum limits is greater than 1, otherwise it uses floating point output format
Improved skin engine:
Added support for skins altered USF obfuscation scheme used in most recent versions or third-party overclocking tools
Drastically reduced load time for obfuscated USF skin files (* .UXF). Now MSI Afterburner open obfuscated skin files roughly 10 times faster than the previous version
Reduced skinned GUI initialization time due to cached access to the header skin
Added support for GPU temperature negative indicators in all skins oversupplied with application
Multimedia timer resolution is no longer hardcoded to 10ms. The resolution is now adjustable and set to 16ms by default to reduce timer interrupts related CPU load at the cost of losing some smoothness in animation GUI. Power users can override timer resolution using the configuration file if Necessary
Updated kernel mode driver biedt new IOCTLs for safe access to PCI bus required for temperature monitoring on AMD CPUs
