MSI Afterburner

Rating: 5.00 (Votes: 1)

MSI Afterburner is the overclocking tool for graphics cards, which is widely used and highly recognized worldwide. Afterburner gives you full control over your own graphics card, a detailed overview of the hardware and other features such as the adjustment of fan settings, benchmarking and video recordings. MSI Afterburner is completely free and can be used with any brand of graphics card.

MSI Afterburner is the ultimate graphics card utility, developed by the Guru3D RivaTuner team. The Beta releases sometimes have an expiration limit, the stable and final build releases do not. We recommend using a final build. We have written a GeForce GTX series 1000 and newer overclocking guide right here as over time a number of things changed like Curve based tweaking as well as automated tweaking. Not just that, we have also updated RTSS, our statistics server that enables the overlay with MSI AfterBurner to offer DirectX 12 overlay support. Please read the full release notes for all changes (as there are quite a few of them). Have fun tweaking. Does your overlay not work anymore after an update? Please perform a full uninstall of RTSS and AfterBurner (with profiles removal) and then perform a CLEAN install of it.

New Features:

- Added voltage control for reference design NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20x0 SUPER series graphic cards
- Added voltage control for AMD RADEON RX 5700 series graphics cards
- Added new MSI Steampunked, MSI Lightning Anniversary and MSI Mystic skins by Drerex design
- Improved hardware monitoring module:
  • Added CPU temperature monitoring support for AMD Ryzen 3X00 processors family
  • Added thermal offset for CPU temperature monitoring on AMD Ryzen Threadripper 29X0 processors family
  • Added package CPU power and per-core CPU power monitoring for AMD Ryzen processors family
  • Improved monitoring plugins architecture:
- Added API function for reading host application’s hardware monitoring timestamp from the plugins. The timestamp is updated by host on each hardware polling iteration, so it allows the plugin to precache and reuse some sensor data if the same physical sensor value is being used in multiple data sources exported by plugin. Such approach is demonstrated in updated CPU.dll plugin for duplicating the same temperature sensor value for all cores on AMD CPU
- Added optional plugin unititialization callback function, which is called by the host before unloading the plugins. New multithreaded Ping.dll plugin is demonstrating new function usage to shut down ping monitoring thread properly

- Improved monitoring plugins:
  • Updated CPU.dll plugin is demonstating AMD Ryzen CPU temperature monitoring implementation and optimal duplication of the same temperature sensor readback for all CPU cores
  • Added new Ping.dll plugin for monitoring ping to desired server via ICMP echo requests. Please take a note that the plugin is configured to monitor ping to www.guru3d.com by default, it is up to you to specify target server name or IP address in the plugin properties
- Improved skin engine:
  • Optimized skin rendering performance for skins using multiple overlapped animated indicators
  • Added position smoothing support to skinned indicators
  • Now skinned applications can forcibly disable indicator animation if necessary
  • Skin format reference guide has been updated to v1.8 to document these changes
- Updated IO driver provides more secure MMIO and MSR access interface
- RivaTuner Statistics Server has been upgraded to v7.2.3
