RivaTuner is a complete powerful tweaking environment, providing you everything you may need to tune NVIDIA GPU based display adapters. The widest driver-level Direct3D / OpenGL and system tuning options, flexible profiling system allowing to make custom settings on per-application basis, both driver-level and low-level hardware access modes, unique diagnostic and real-time hardware monitoring features and exclusive power user oriented tools like built-in registry editor and patch script engine make RivaTuner's feature set absolutely unmatched. RivaTuner supports all NVIDIA display adapters starting from Riva TNT family up to the latest GeForce series and widest range of NVIDIA drivers starting from the oldest Detonator 2.08 up to the newest ForceWare drivers family. In addition to complete NVIDIA hardware support, RivaTuner also provides support for display adapters based upon newer ATI graphics processors. All RivaTuner's features besides driver-level tuning options are also available on supported ATI hardware.
Rivatuner has been updated towards version 2.10 In this release we have included a huge number of new stuff to keep you busy, obviously GeForce 9x00 support has been added as well as ForceWare GeForce drivers up-to 177.92 and AMD ATI Catalyst 8.8 support.
Fixed core clock gating detection code for G8x and newer
display adapters. RivaTuner no longer erroneously detects core
clock generator switching to PCI-E bus clock and no longer
monitors wrong 100MHz core / shader clock under certain
conditions (e.g. wrong shader clock on GeForce GTX 260 / 280
series in idle mode).
Driver-level fan control is no longer forcibly switching to
direct fan control mode when driver-level system tweaks dialog
is being closed and "Fan" tab is not in focus.
Added ForceWare 177.xx drivers family support.
Updated databases for Detonator and ForceWare drivers. Added
databases for ForceWare 175.16, 175.19, 177.26, 177.35, 177.39,
177.41, 177.66, 177.70, 177.72, 177.73, 177.79, 177.83, 177.89
Added Catalyst 8.5, 8.6, 8.7 and 8.8 drivers detection.
Updated Catalyst 8.5, 8.6, 8.7 and 8.8 certified SoftR9x00
patch script (for Windows 2000/XP drivers only).
Improved NVIDIA GT200 graphics processors family support.
Thanks to Jacob Freeman @ EVGA for providing NVIDIA GeForce GTX
260 display adapter sample for testing.
Added AMD RV770 graphics processors family support. Now
almost all RivaTuner's features including overclocking,
low-level fan control and hardware monitoring are fully
available on AMD RADEON HD 48x0 series display adapters. Thanks
to Hilbert Hagedoorn @ The Guru of 3D for providing AMD RADEON
HD 4850 display adapter sample for testing. Please take a note
that currently RivaTuner doesn't support direct access to
generic I2C bus and flashrom on RV770 GPUs, so generic I2C bus
access based features (e.g. RADEON HD 4870 X2 fan control and
monitoring) and VGA BIOS image dumping features are currently
Improved set of technologies aimed to improve RivaTuner
startup and usage safety in conjunction with other hardware
monitoring and diagnostics related tools:
Previously used low-level I2C synchronization protocol
is now also applied to driver-level fan control calls to
prevent possible conflicts between low-level I2C
transactions and internal driver-level I2C transactions.
Please take a note that to take full effect the protocol
must be supported by other tools used simultaneously with
RivaTuner, so please ensure that you're using this version
of RivaTuner with the latest versions of other monitoring or
diagnostics related software products (e.g. Everest or EVGA
New server uses improved hook notification system and
more aggressive hooks unload routines aimed to minimize the
situations which require system reboot during server
Added new OSD rendering mode. Optional configurable OSD
background improves OSD text readability in some
applications and prevents it from merging with solid color
screen. Please take a note that new mode doubles performance
hit caused by OSD rendering so it is recommended to use in
only when needed via the server's application profiles.
Updated pseudo-3D applications list.
Updated exceptions list for bundled D3DOverrider utility.
Improved hardware monitoring module:
Now hardware monitoring plugin activation wizard module
enables ADT7473 plugin by default on GeForce GTX 260 / 280
series display adapters.
Improved memory clock gating detection for GeForce GTX
260 / 280 series display adapters.
Improved VT1103.dll plugin:
Added support for voltage regulator output and
average current monitoring on NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260 /
280 series. Please take a note that Volterra voltage
regulators are rather sensitive to frequent polling and
may return false data under heavy load, so it is not
recommended to use VRM monitoring in daily monitoring
Added support for serial VID encoding mode for
VT1165 voltage regulators to provide proper voltage
regulator output monitoring on AMD RADEON HD 4870 and
GeForce GTX 260 / 280 series display adapters.
The plugin no longer uses hardware database to
detect used VID encoding mode. Now the plugin directly
reads hardwired VID encoding mode defined
by configuration resistors.
Optimized average current monitoring implementation
for VT1105/VT1165 voltage regulators. Now the plugin
pre-calculates and pre-caches maximum output current
instead of calculating it on each average current read
