MSI Afterburner 4.3.0 Beta 4 Official 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 Guru3D RivaTuner teams. The Beta releases have a expiration limit, the Stable and Final releases do not.
We strongly recommend using the final build 4.2.0 if you are using Kepler/Maxwell GPUs, however if you purchased a GeForce GTX 1070 or 1080, you should grab the latest beta, 4.3.0 Beta 4 as that beta is all about supporting the new Pascal GPU based graphics cards. We have written a GeForce GTX 1070 and 1080 overclocking guide right here.
Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8 and Windows 10 (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 our 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 9, auxiliary VDDCI/PEXVDD and memory 10 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
Version 4.3.0 Beta 4
Added GPU Boost 3.0 technology support for NVIDIA Pascal graphics cards:
Added percent based overvoltage support
Added voltage/frequency curve customization support. You may use traditional core clock slider on 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 per-point curve adjustment. The editor window can be activated with <Ctrl> + <F> keyboard shortcut and it provides you the following features:
You may independently adjust clock frequency offset for each point with mouse cursor or <Up> / <Down> keys
You may hold <Ctrl> key to set anchor and fix clock frequency offset in minimum/maximum voltage point and adjust the offset of any other point with mouse to linearly interpolate the offsets between the anchor and adjustment points
You may hold <Shift> 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 main application window
You may press <Ctrl> + <D> 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 each other in realtime
You may press <L> 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 realtime (e.g. 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 improve graphs readability on NVIDIA Pascal series graphics cards
Improved representation of performance limits graphs for NVIDIA graphics cards per 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
Added uP1816 voltage regulators support to provide compatibility with future custom design MSI graphics cards
Improved validation and handling of erroneous data reported after TDR on NVIDIA graphics cards
Startup profile is now also affected by <Lock profiles> button, which means that you cannot 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 temporarily 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 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
Fixed bug causing the maximum value to be invisible on some hardware monitoring graphs under certain conditions (e.g. <Framerate> or <Frametime> graphs after closing 3D application)
Prior to installation please be sure to uninstall your old version of AfterBurner. Above in the video an example of how to use the new Pascal Tweaking options.
