Software Update: MSI Afterburner 4.3.0




MSI Afterburner logo (75 pix) MSI has released version 4.3.0 of Afterburner, a tweak programs for graphics cards. Although MSI have his name attached to it, is to use the program with products from other manufacturers, though it will not always all the functionality 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 few other little tool. So can be recorded and shared the video output with Predator, and there is a benchmark program called Kombustor. If you also Afterburner Remote Server installs, it is possible to customize the card’s settings via an Android or iOS app without having to leave your game. The changelog for this release is as follows:

Revision history Version 4.3.0

Added AMD Ellesmere and Baffin graphics processors family support
Added Overdrive N (Overdrive 7) Technology Support for AMD Polaris architecture based graphics cards
Added core voltage control for reference design AMD RADEON RX 460, AMD RADEON RX 470 and RX 480 series AMD RADEON cards with on-die voltage SMC controller
Added memory controller usage graph to hardware monitoring module for AMD graphics cards. Currently memory controller usage monitoring is Implemented for AMD Ellesmere and Baffin graphics processors families only
Added GPU power draw graph to hardware monitoring module for AMD graphics cards. Currently GPU power draw monitoring is Implemented for AMD Ellesmere and Baffin graphics processors families only
Added “Erase car saved startup settings” option to “AMD compatibility properties” section in the “General” tab. Starting from AMD Crimson driver family, the driver is automatically saving hardware settings (eg overclocking or fan control settings) to the registry and apply it at Windows startup. It makes settings or any third party hardware overclocking tool here is virtually permanent, meaning That applied settings stay in the system even after rebooting or powering down the system. However, Such implementation is unsafe and even Potentially Dangerous, Because You’re no longer editable to undo unsafe overclocking with system reboot or reinstall any driver. To preventinfo Such situations, MSI Afterburner can now optionally erase AMD driver’s car startup saved settings after applying settings to new hardware
Added GPU Boost 3.0 technology support for Pascal NVIDIA graphics cards:
Added percent based on voltage support
Added voltage / frequency curve customization support. You May use traditional core clock slider on the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 and 1080 graphics cards to apply fixed offset to all voltage / frequency curve points as well as use brand new flexible voltage / frequency curve editor window for more precise by-point curve adjustment. The editor window can be activated Either with “Voltage / frequency curve editor” button in the main application window or with + and keyboard shortcut It provides you the Following Features:
You May Independently adjustable clock frequency offset for each point with mouse cursor or / keys
May you hold the key to set anchor and fix clock frequency offset minimum / maximum voltage point and adjust the offset or any other point with mouse to linearly interpolate the offsets between the anchor and adjustment points
May you hold key while adjusting the offset of any point with mouse to apply the same fixed offset to all points. That’s equal to adjusting the offset with the slider in the main application window
You May press + to reset offsets for all points
You May switch between traditional core clock control slider in the main window and voltage / frequency curve editor window to see How They Affect eachother in real time
You May press after selecting any point on the curve with mouse cursor to disable GPU dynamic voltage / frequency adjustment and lock the voltage and core clock frequency to a state defined by the target point. This feature Allows you to test graphics card stability Independently for each voltage / frequency point of the curve using real 3D applications or any stress test of your choice. In Addition to stability testing usage scenario, MSI Afterburner Allows you to save a curve with locked point setting to a profile, so you May easily switch between dynamic voltage / frequency management and fixed voltage / frequency settings in real time (eg to Achieve the maximum performance during benchmarking). Please take a note That fixed voltage and frequency settings do not allow you to disable power and thermal throttling
Increased default maximum limits for “Core Clock”, “Memory Clock” and “Memory usage” graphs to -improvesleep graphs readability on Pascal NVIDIA series graphics cards
Added configuration file switch-allowing you to toggle the source for “Power” graph on NVIDIA graphics cards. Normalized total power draw (ie normalized value from multiple power sensors installed on the graphics card) is selected by default by NVIDIA recommendation, However you can configure MSI Afterburner to display power draw from GPU sensor only
Improved representation or performance limits graphs for NVIDIA graphics cards by Nvidia recommendations:
“Voltage limit” and “OV max limit” graphs have been merged into single “Voltage limit” graph
“Utilization limit” graph HAS BEEN renamed to “No load limit” graph
“SLI sync” graph is now hidden on the systems with single NVIDIA GPU
Improved representation or performance limits in graphs on-screen display or in Logitech Keyboard LCD. Now the names or Currently triggered performance limits are being displayed in On Screen Display or in Logitech Keyboard LCD INSTEAD OF previously used binary limits representation form
Community-created third-party hardware database providing voltage control support on some non-custom design MSI graphics cards is now included in distributive
Added uP1816 voltage regulators support to providence compatibility with future custom design MSI graphics cards
Improved validation and handling or erroneous data Reported after TDR or during runtime driver installation on NVIDIA graphics
Improved clock monitoring on NVIDIA GPU Boost 2.0 Dynamic Graphics cards after uninstallation / reinstallation or display driver during MSI Afterburner runtime
Added detection of run-time driver installation on NVIDIA graphics cards. Now MSI Afterburner is Periodically checking the presence or NVIDIA driver and displaying notification message informing you That the connection with GPU solves When the driver is being dynamically uninstalled during MSI Afterburner runtime
Startup profile is now ook affectedness by “Lock profiles” button, Which Means That You can not modify or delete your startup overclocking settings while this button is pressed. This feature can be useful to protect startup overclocking settings from modification while tempo- testing various overclocking scenarios on overclocked system
Added support for unofficial overclocking mode with disabled PowerPlay on PowerPlay7 capable hardware (AMD Tonga and newer graphics processors family)
Added unofficial overclocking support for AMD Polaris architecture based graphics cards
Added ability to use low-level hardware access interface on the systems with AMD graphics cards When legacy VGA BIOS image is not mapped to memory (eg in UEFI environment)
Improved compatibility with the systems with both Overdrive Overdrive 5 and 6 API AMD graphics cards installed
Added driver registry key detection for the secondary display adapters in SLI / Crossfire systems. Due to this improvement it is no longer Necessary to Temporarily disable Crossfire When alte ring some settings in “! MD compatibility properties” section (eg “Extend official overclocking limits” or “Enable ULPS” settings)
Improved hardware polling and application startup time on ULPS enabled Crossfire systems with AMD Fiji and newer AMD graphics processors
Primary GPU usage is no longer clones on all secondary GPU usage graphs on Crossfire systems when “Enable unified GPU usage monitoring” is enabled in “! MD compatibility properties”. Please take a note That only the primary GPU load is available on Crossfire systems When this option is enabled
Updated IO driver biedt more secure MMIO access interface
Fixed bug causing the maximum value to be invisible on some hardware monitoring graphs under certainement conditions (eg “frame rate” or “Frame Time” graphs After closing 3D application)
Added ability to define numpad keys as hotkeys When in on
Guru3D RivaTuner Statistics Server HAS BEEN upgraded to v6.5.0 Software Update: MSI Afterburner 4.3.0
