MSI Afterburner 3.0.1 Download - Guru3D and MSI have been working hard on AfterBurner, today we release an updated this revision of Afterburner, this application successfully secured the leading position on graphics card utilities.
MSI Afterburner is ultimate graphics card utility, co-developed by MSI and RivaTuner teams. The Beta releases have a expiration limit, the Stable and Final releases do not.
Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8 (both x86 and x64 versions) with full administrative rights
NVIDIA GeForce 6 or newer series graphics card with NVIDIA ForceWare 96.xx or higher drivers 1
AMD RADEON HD 2000 or newer series graphics card with AMD Catalyst 9.3 or higher drivers 2
Any graphics card can be used to start application in limited functionality mode
Based on RivaTuner core, Afterburner contains the mix of the most popular and frequently used RivaTuner's technologies exposed in
new simple and effective user interface
Unified features for both AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards. You no longer need to change your favorite graphics card utility software when migrating from NVIDIA graphics card to AMD and vice versa. Afterburner provides you almost the same functionality for
hardware manufactured by both leading GPU vendors and makes migration process really easy. Just keep overclocking and monitoring your GPU like you are used to do, no need to change your preferences and search for other utility after graphics card upgrade!
User extendable architecture. You may express your creativity and design your own skins for MSI Afterburner, develop external applications interacting with MSI Afterburner (e.g. sidebar gadgets or smartphone applications remotely controlling your hardware), create localization for your native language and many, many more!
Basic overclocking and fan control features including full multi-GPU support, independent shader clock adjustment (NVIDIA GeForce 8, 9 and 200 series cards4), overclocking and fan control profiles with hotkey based activation abilities
Power limit control via AMD PowerTune and NVIDIA GPU Boost technologies
Desktop and in-game screen capture features support. BMP, PNG and JPG formats are supported5
Realtime desktop and in-game video capture support via Predator. technology6. Uncompressed, high-performance custom RTV1 and native MJPG video encoding, encoding with third-party external VFW compatible codecs (e.g. Lagarith or x264vfw) and hardware accelerated encoding via Intel QuickSync, NVIDIA NVENC and AMD VCE are supported in conjunction with wide range of additional video capture related options, multisource stereo and multichannel (for Window Vista and newer) audio capture with
Push-To-Talk support. The functionality of expensive commercial video capture products is now available to everyone absolutely for free! There is no need to buy dedicated video capture software anymore!
Advanced fan control. Most of fan control tools allow you to use either fixed manual fan speed mode or default automatic fan speed mode, where the fan speed automation is performed either by dedicated hardware chip or by display driver depending on graphics card model. In addition to these traditional fan control modes Afterburner also provides user defined software automatic fan speed mode allowing you to define your own fan speed curve. New mode combines flexibility of RivaTuner's fan speed scheduling technology with new and really easy to use graphical interface for visual fan speed curve editing
Hardware health monitoring features including popular tray icon, Logitech LCD and On-Screen Display7 monitoring modes and history logging in native RivaTuner hardware monitoring log file format
Automatic profiles management system allows experienced users to define their own dynamic downclocking rules on the systems with no hardware downclocking support or program different fan control modes for 2D and 3D applications8
Core, auxiliary VDDCI/PEXVDD and memory voltage control gives more freedom to hardcore overclockers. Please refer to your retail MSI graphics card box to find MSI Afterburner voltage control compatibility logos.
Added core voltage control for reference design AMD RADEON R9 295X2 series graphics cards with NCP81022 voltage regulators
Fixed hardware database for reference design AMD RADEON HD 7990 and AMD RADEON HD 290X series graphic cards
Fixed GDI resource leak when tray icon monitoring mode is enabled
RivaTuner Statistics Server has been upgraded to version 6.1.2
Ported to new VC++ compiler, new core and skin engine libraries with better extendibility
Added Bonaire, Curacao and Hawaii graphics processors family support
Added core and auxiliary VDDCI voltage control for reference design AMD RADEON R9 290/290X series graphics cards with IR3567B voltage regulators
Added core voltage control for reference design AMD RADEON R7 260/260X series graphics cards with NCP81022 voltage regulators
Added core voltage control for reference design AMD RADEON 7790 series graphics cards with NCP81022 voltage regulators
Added NVIDIA GPU Boost 2.0 technology support for NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan graphics cards:
***9678; Added slider for temperature limit adjustment
***9678; Added option for linked power limit and temperature limit adjustment
***9678; Added option for temperature limit prioritizing
***9678; Added maximum voltage adjustment
Improved NVAPI access layer architecture with better extendibility
Improved AMD ADL access layer with Overdrive 6 support to provide compatibility with future AMD GPUs
Added NCP4206 voltage regulators support to provide compatibility with future custom design MSI graphics cards
Improved voltage control layer architecture provides better compatibility with automatic voltage control on NCP4206 voltage regulators
Improved hardware monitoring module architecture with better extendibility
Added voltage control mode selection option to the "Compatibility properties" section in "General" tab. Now you can toggle between reference design, standard MSI and extended MSI voltage control modes
Added "boost edition" / "GHz edition" GPU type selection option for reference design AMD RADEON 7970 and AMD RADEON 7950 based graphics cards to "AMD compatibility properties" section in "General" tab
Added GPU usage averaging algorithm for Overdrive 6 capable AMD GPUs. Now displayed GPU usage is being averaged by sliding window to smooth GPU usage artifacts occurring due to bug in AMD ADL API on AMD Sea Islands GPU family
Added optional unified GPU usage monitoring path via D3DKMT performance counters. You may tick "Enable unified GPU usage monitoring" option in "AMD compatibilities properties" in "General" tab as a workaround to replace native AMD GPU usage monitoring if it is working improperly (e.g. broken GPU usage monitoring in AMD ADL API for AMD Sea Islands GPU family) voltage regulators...etc., please refer the update note.
