MSI Afterburner helps overclocking your graphics card

Posted on Thursday, October 01 2009 @ 14:58:39 CEST by


MSI released Afterburner, a new graphics card overclocking utility based on the popular Rivatuner engine. MSI graphics card users can download it for free over here.
The powerful over-voltage and overclocking function
Afterburner fully supports the GPU/Shader/Memory clock adjustment of NVIDIA and ATI graphics cards. Beside general overclocking features, Afterburner has the exclusive over-voltage technology, which supports NVIDIA and ATI high-end product-line and MSI award-winning Lightning series. With these graphics cards, the extra over-voltage function will be activated, and can highly boost the graphics card overclocking capability and make the games runs more smoothly. According to the internal test result, MSI N275GTX Lightning core clock can be overclocked to the awesome 1175MHz and reached the unprecedented 85% overclocking capability.

Advanced Fan Speed Control
In addition, Afterburner has exclusive advanced fan speed control feature. Generally speaking, fan speed of a normal graphics card is fixed by BIOS, but now users can customize different fan speed under different temperature trigger points with this Afterburner exclusive feature, so it can be set depending on users’ favor and hardware configuration no matter in necessity of higher cooling efficiency or a quieter operating environment. With highly acclaimed MSI Twin Frozr and Cyclone thermal design, the high flexibility of Afterburner Advanced Fan Speed Control feature can be more highlighted.

The accurate Monitoring and Profile feature
To show the graphics card operating status more accurately, Afterburner provides a complete monitoring function: all important information including the GPU core clock, memory clock, temperature, voltage, and fan speed have a real-time on-screen-display monitor in games and real-time information in Windows Tray Icon. And in the monitoring window the maximum/minimum value can be easily recorded and enables users to know well the graphics card condition and change different settings according to this information.

All the adjustment above can be saved as 5 profiles in Afterburner, users can quickly switch to different settings with hotkeys. Afterburner can even automatically switch to different profiles between 2D and 3D mode so that users will have a quiet and cool environment in Windows and high performance in 3D games. It can always provide the best experience under both two conditions.
