You are misinterpreting something. MSI Afterburner and EVGA PrecisionX used the same licensed RivaTuner Core engine hence the similarities. EVGA stops the agreement, develops their in-house software .. yet took the design features and interface layout from the Rivatuner Core.

I can see the (very significant) similarities to AB, though given the shared lineage, that's hardly surprising. If they're using his core code though without paying for it... that's wrong.

ok ok listen these guys from evga know i will kill for my guy alex so they best stay on the other side of the m f in country.Steal his work and have the ballz to say they have new software thats low as you can get. I am not missing the little bitches from evga forums crying about this and that not working becuase they fail at reading release notes and need everything spoon feed to them. Really can't we just get rtss to stop working with any evga card? that would be best thing to do.

Took them how long to develop an looks exactly the same pretty much.

That would hardly be fair - the people that bought evga products arent responsible for evga's mischiefs. Besides, i use msi afterburner, and i would like that to continue working, regardless of what happens with precision x.
Well thats a good point To just stop buying evga cards is a better idea I am trying to hold back my trucker languge this morning i find it very difficult and i knew about this already i am very pis5'ed off to say the least

Hmm very interesting. I smell a lawsuit. If they did use the code without permission or paying for it. This is not right. Not right at all.

If they release the software with a disclaimer stating the design was from another software developer, then they would be clean. Non-disclosure would be bad for them. I'm over-simplifying the licence, but that's the basics of it - this is based on licence agreements I've issued in the past and negotiated on both sides of the fence. I'd have to see the original agreement to be sure, but I imagine there would be a clause covering this. So...I'm assuming a lot here.

I don't see how they could have achieved the same features without using the same code.
Yes very true. Also we do not know what the main OCing screen looks like with the different sliders for GPU clock, Memory clock, and voltage. To me that would be another important tidbit.

WTF @ "integrated Steam Achievements"
Hmm I guess they are trying to make a game out of OCing your graphics card.

Me too
I don't see how they could have achieved the same features without using the same code.
Even the placement of UI elements and the window width are way too close. There would be no sense at all for the programmers to copy things like this, they could have fixed that kind of issues in the process for free. Must be copied code alltogether and just made some minor cosmetic changes.

Can't wait to see the one that tells you you've just toasted your card. I would assume the only reasoning behind copying the UI would be to keep it as familiar as possible for it's customers, don't agree with it myself as it is an obvious rip off of Unwinders hard work and wouldn't surprise me if they copied the code behind the software as well.

Even if they did develop their own code, they clearly jacked the GUI, and that is also protected intellectual property.

Whether this is a copy or not, since this is EVGA's first attempt at going about it on their own, I'm going to wait for PrecisionX 15.1 before I upgrade. Also, I couldn't run BF4 at all with Riva Tuner running since a BF4 update about a month ago so I haven't run it since. Whether or not I'll use this new iteration of PrecisionX will depend fully on whether it can run in conjunction with BF4.
You can simply disable the Origin overlay and your problem is fixed.

hope they do something about this bit cheeky tbh

I know it'll prob get taken down but I made sure to post this on the EVGA Precisionx15 DL steam forums page, figured some may be interested.

I'm, honestly, perplexed. They show 0 respect to Unwinder. I hope this gets sorted out QUICK.
Why would they put this on Steam? If it launches through Steam, how would you launch a game? You can't have 2 Steam apps running at the same time.
Sorry, who said so? You can.

Guys I strongly urge you to read post number 37 here: forums.evga.com/FindPost/2190778 Unwinder who was the initial developer has not left the project. If you need any further info ask one of the EVGA mods on the EVGA forums
Hmm Interesting. If Unwinder had anything to do with this project and it looks like he did there is really no stealing involved here.
