AfterBur­ner v4.6.0 beta 10

  • Added NVIDIA Turing GPU archi­tec­tu­re sup­port:
    • Added vol­ta­ge con­trol for refe­rence design NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20x0 series gra­phics cards
    • Advan­ced GPU Boost con­trol for NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20x0 series gra­phics cards. Exten­ded voltage/frequency cur­ve edi­tor on GeForce RTX 20x0 fami­ly gra­phics cards allows you to tune addi­tio­nal pie­ce­wi­se power/frequency floor and temperature/frequency floor cur­ves. Con­trol points on tho­se new cur­ves allow you to con­trol GPU Boost power and ther­mal thrott­ling algo­rithms more pre­cise­ly than tra­di­tio­nal power limit and ther­mal limit sli­ders 
    • Hard­ware abs­trac­tion lay­er has been revam­ped to pro­vi­de sup­port for mul­ti­ple inde­pen­dent fans per GPU due to intro­du­cing dual fan design on refe­rence design NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20x0 series gra­phics cards and due to intro­du­cing nati­ve dual fan con­trol in NVAPI. Both fans of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20x0 can be moni­to­red inde­pendent­ly in hard­ware moni­to­ring modu­le now and can be con­trol­led syn­chro­ni­cal­ly in manu­al mode
    • Added NVIDIA Scan­ner tech­no­lo­gy sup­port
  • Added Mono­li­thic Power Sys­tems MP2884A and MP2888A vol­ta­ge con­trol­lers sup­port
  • Added core, memo­ry, auxi­li­a­ry PEXVDD and auxi­li­a­ry 1V8 vol­ta­ge con­trol for custom design MSI RTX 2080Ti Light­ning series gra­phics cards with MP2888A + MP2888A +uP1816 vol­ta­ge regu­la­tors 
  • Added VRM and VRM2 tem­pe­ra­tu­re moni­to­ring for custom design MSI RTX 2080Ti Light­ning series gra­phics cards
  • Impro­ved hard­ware moni­to­ring modu­le:
    • Added ther­mal off­set for CPU tem­pe­ra­tu­re moni­to­ring on AMD Ryzen 7 2700X pro­ces­sors
    • Simi­lar CPU tem­pe­ra­tures are now clo­ned for all cores on AMD CPUs to pro­vi­de more con­ve­ni­ent and uni­fied On-Screen Dis­play lay­out bet­ween Intel and AMD CPUs
    • Page­fi­le usa­ge” graph in hard­ware moni­to­ring modu­le has been ren­a­med to “Com­mit char­ge”
    • Added group ope­ra­ti­on noti­fier to the cap­ti­on of active hard­ware moni­to­ring graphs list in “Moni­to­ring” tab in the app­li­ca­ti­on pro­per­ties. The noti­fier is informing you that you can app­ly a set­ting to all or to mul­ti­ple selec­ted hard­ware moni­to­ring graphs when you hold group ope­ra­ti­on key (i.e. <crap> or <Ctrl>) and hover mou­se cur­sor over the set­ting that can be app­lied to mul­ti­ple hard­ware moni­to­ring graphs at once (e.g. “Show in On-Screen Dis­play”)
    • Added “Select by group” and “Select by type” com­mands to con­text menu of active hard­ware moni­to­ring graphs list in “Moni­to­ring” tab in the app­li­ca­ti­on pro­per­ties. New com­mands allow selec­ting the graphs of exac­t­ly the same type (e.g. CPU1-CPU8 usa­ge graphs on eight core CPU) or the graphs with the same OSD/LCD group name (for examp­le, GPU clock, GPU power, GPU usa­ge and the rest graphs with “GPU” group name). Such com­mands allow you to show simi­lar items (e.g. all CPU usa­ges) in On-Screen Dis­play with a sin­gle click or rena­me a group for all child graphs in the sin­gle pass
    • Mul­ti group edit mode is auto­ma­ti­cal­ly selec­ted now for group name edit field when you enab­le “Over­ri­de group name” opti­on while hol­ding <Ctrl> key. You may still manu­al­ly togg­le this mode with <Ctrl>+<M> hot­key any­ti­me when edi­t­ing the group name
    • On-Screen Dis­play item type (i.e. text, graph or com­bi­na­ti­on of both) is now dis­play­ed in “Pro­per­ties” column of active hard­ware moni­to­ring graphs list in “Moni­to­ring” tab in the app­li­ca­ti­on pro­per­ties
    • Added pro­gramm­a­ble hot­key for clea­ring moni­to­ring histo­ry
    • Added “App­ly” but­ton to app­li­ca­ti­on pro­per­ties win­dow. Now you may ite­ra­tively cus­to­mi­ze moni­to­ring modu­le wit­hout clo­sing the pro­per­ties to see the result on each step. Plea­se take a note that some pro­per­ties (e.g. app­li­ca­ti­on lan­guage) can­not be app­lied until you com­ple­te­ly clo­se pro­per­ties win­dow by design of app­li­ca­ti­on
    • Impro­ved On-Screen Dis­play lay­out edi­tor:
      • Sys­tem reser­ved varia­ble slots 250–255 are now dis­play­ed as sys­tem varia­bles in the lay­out edi­tor
      • Added embed­ded graphs sup­port. Embed­ded graphs can be dis­play­ed direc­t­ly in the text in a sepa­ra­te column, it can be con­ve­ni­ent for dis­play­ing per-core CPU usa­ges
      • Added embed­ded graph width adjust­ment varia­ble to the “Graph” pro­per­ty node 
      • Added new “Graph pla­ce­ment” pro­per­ty node. You can use it to place each graph on top of text, on bot­tom or make it embed­ded in in text column
      • Added new varia­bles to “Sepa­ra­tors” pro­per­ty node. Now you may defi­ne inde­pen­dent sepa­ra­tors for the graphs loca­ted on top of text part, for the text part and for the graphs loca­ted on bot­tom of text part. 
      • Slight­ly alte­red inter­pre­ta­ti­on of pro­log and epi­log sepa­ra­tors. Plea­se take a note that pro­log sepa­ra­tor is no lon­ger auto­ma­ti­cal­ly appen­ded with new line sym­bol, so you must spe­ci­fy it manu­al­ly when necessa­ry and epi­log sepa­ra­tor is now dis­play­ed below the bot­tom group of graphs
      • The list of hard­ware moni­to­ring items in “Add item(s)” dia­log win­dow is alpha­be­ti­cal­ly sor­ted now
      • Added macro­ses for embed­ding any data from moni­to­ring modu­le into OSD text (e.g. pro­log). You may use macro­ses to dis­play anything avail­ab­le in the moni­to­ring modu­le, e.g. %CPU tem­pe­ra­tu­re%
      • Impro­ved On-Screen Dis­play hyper­text for­mat­ting per­for­mance due to more opti­mal macro replace stra­te­gy
      • Revam­ped “modern web” lay­out. New lay­out is demons­tra­ting new text for­mat­ting fea­tures inclu­ding big custom frame­ra­te coun­ter, custom embed­ded back­ground and On-Screed Dis­play hea­der, custom bench­mark and sys­tem time indi­ca­tors and embed­ded CPU and GPU usa­ge graphs
      • On-Screen Dis­play lay­outs are saved in moni­to­ring pro­files now
  • Impro­ved HwIn­fo plugin:
    • Added UPS load, power, input vol­ta­ge and char­ge level data sources to default plugin con­fi­gu­ra­ti­on
  • Impro­ved voltage/frequency edi­tor:
    • Voltage/frequency edi­tor win­dow is now avail­ab­le on AMD GPUs. On AMD plat­form it allows you to edit core fre­quen­ci­es and vol­ta­ges inde­pendent­ly per each P-Sta­te:
    • Simi­lar to NVIDIA GPUs, you may eit­her adjust each point fre­quen­cy or vol­ta­ge inde­pendent­ly with both mou­se and key­board or hold <Shift> and drag sin­gle point to app­ly simi­lar fre­quen­cy or vol­ta­ge off­set to all P-sta­tes
    • Read only P-Sta­tes are cur­r­ent­ly not tra­cked, which means that you can try to adjust the fre­quen­cy and vol­ta­ge for it but it will be igno­red when app­ly­ing the cur­ve
    • P-Sta­tes locking func­tio­n­a­li­ty is not imple­men­ted yet
    • Slight­ly increa­sed default vol­ta­ge ran­ge for voltage/frequency cur­ve. Now you may lock vol­ta­ge to lower values if you’re using voltage/frequency edi­tor to down­volt and redu­ce power con­sump­ti­on on your NVIDIA GPU. Power users may cus­to­mi­ze the ran­ge fur­ther, the vol­ta­ge and fre­quen­cy limits are ful­ly adjus­ta­ble via the con­fi­gu­ra­ti­on file
    • Now you may press <F5> key in the edi­tor win­dow to reread the cur­ve from hard­ware. This fea­ture can be use­ful when adjus­ting the cur­ve in chan­ging ther­mal envi­ron­ment
    • Vol­ta­ge and fre­quen­cy axes are dyna­mi­cal­ly sca­les now, so the cap­ti­ons do not over­lap when win­dow is too small
  • Impro­ved hard­ware con­trol sha­red memo­ry inter­face. During the past years, exter­nal app­li­ca­ti­ons like MSI Remo­te Ser­ver were using this inter­face for tuning GPU hard­ware set­tings remo­te­ly from exter­nal app­li­ca­ti­ons. The impro­ve­ments are inten­ded to allow con­nec­ting exter­nal stress tes­ting and auto­ma­tic over­clo­cking rela­ted app­li­ca­ti­ons to MSI Afterbur­ner via this inter­face:
    • Now voltage/frequency cur­ve on NVIDIA Pas­cal and newer NVIDIA GPU archi­tec­tures is acces­si­ble via hard­ware con­trol sha­red memo­ry inter­face
    • New hard­ware con­trol sha­red memo­ry inter­face com­mand allows MSI Afterbur­ner to load hard­ware set­tings from exter­nal app­li­ca­ti­on wit­hout imme­dia­te­ly app­ly­ing new set­tings to GPU
    • Added noti­fi­ca­ti­on mes­sa­ge, allo­wing exter­nal app­li­ca­ti­ons to noti­fy MSI Afterbur­ner about new com­mand writ­ten to hard­ware con­trol sha­red memo­ry. Wit­hout the noti­fi­ca­ti­on, MSI Afterbur­ner is exe­cu­ting exter­nal com­mands on each hard­ware pol­ling ite­ra­ti­on like befo­re. Plea­se refer to SDK and MACMS­ha­red­Me­mo­ry­Sam­ple source code to see noti­fi­ca­ti­on mes­sa­ge usa­ge examp­le
    • Added hard­ware iden­ti­fi­ca­ti­on info to GPU ent­ries in hard­ware con­trol sha­red memo­ry. Hard­ware iden­ti­fi­ca­ti­on info allows exter­nal app­li­ca­ti­ons to recon­ci­le own enu­me­ra­ted devices with logi­cal GPUs enu­me­ra­ted by MSI Afterbur­ner 
    • Now hard­ware con­trol sha­red memo­ry is refres­hed on delay­ed fan speed read­back events
  •  New bund­led MSI Over­clo­cking Scan­ner app­li­ca­ti­on in now inclu­ded in MSI Afterbur­ner dis­tri­bu­ti­ve:
  • MSI Over­clo­cking Scan­ner is cur­r­ent­ly sup­por­ted on NVIDIA GTX 10x0 and NVIDIA RTX 20x0 series gra­phics cards under 64-bit ope­ra­ting sys­tems only. On such sys­tems you may activa­te the scan­ner with dedi­ca­ted but­ton from the main app­li­ca­ti­on win­dow or direc­t­ly from voltage/frequency cur­ve edi­tor win­dow
    • MSI Over­clo­cking Scan­ner is powe­red by NVIDIA Scan­ner tech­no­lo­gy, which is using pro­prie­ta­ry algo­rithms to quick­ly and reli­ab­ly test manu­al­ly over­clo­cked GPU sta­bi­li­ty or find the maxi­mum sta­ble GPU over­clo­cking in auto­ma­tic mode with a sin­gle click. The scan­ner is using embed­ded NVIDIA test load to stress GPU. The scan­ner pro­vi­des you two func­tio­n­al modes:
    • In test mode MSI Over­clo­cking Scan­ner is stress-tes­ting your manu­al GPU over­clo­cking set­tings during appro­xi­mate­ly 5 minu­tes. The result is retur­ned as GPU sta­bi­li­ty con­fi­dence level (0% — unsta­ble, 100% — sta­ble)
    • In scan mode MSI Over­clo­cking Scan­ner is stress-tes­ting and slow­ly increa­sing clocks on voltage/frequency cur­ve points and this way auto­ma­ti­cal­ly detec­ting the maxi­mum sta­ble GPU over­clo­cking. The result is retur­ned as modi­fied voltage/frequency cur­ve and average GPU over­clo­cking in MHz
  • Added frame­ra­te limi­ter com­pa­ti­bi­li­ty set­tings group to “On-Screen Dis­play” tab to the app­li­ca­ti­on pro­per­ties. The set­tings inclu­de pro­gramm­a­ble hot­keys for glo­bal­ly dis­ab­ling, enab­ling or toggling frame­ra­te limi­t­ing tech­ni­ques of RivaT­u­ner Sta­tis­tics Ser­ver. The set­tings are inten­ded to pro­vi­de a way to dyna­mi­cal­ly enab­le or dis­able scan­li­ne guru sync tech­no­lo­gy based frame­ra­te limi­t­ing wit­hout alte­ring app­li­ca­ti­on pro­files, howe­ver you may use it to togg­le tra­di­tio­nal frame­ra­te limi­ter as well
  • Fixed ker­nel mode hard­ware access inter­face fix for AMD Vega GPUs. HBM tem­pe­ra­tu­re, GPU power and GPU vol­ta­ge are no lon­ger retur­ning bogus values when ker­nel mode hard­ware access inter­face is enab­led on AMD Vega series gra­phics cards
  • Hard­coded voltage/frequency cur­ve clock mul­ti­plier imple­men­ta­ti­on has been repla­ced with heu­ris­tic mul­ti­plier detec­tion in order to pro­vi­de uni­fied voltage/frequency cur­ve con­trol imple­men­ta­ti­on for NVIDIA Pas­cal and newer NVIDIA GPU archi­tec­tures
  • Impro­ved real­time voltage/frequency cur­ve edi­tor GUI sca­ling. Now GUI is sca­led pro­per­ty when adjus­ting skin sca­ling with open voltage/frequency cur­ve edi­tor win­dow
  • Impro­ved report win­dow, fan cur­ve edi­tor win­dow, moni­to­ring win­dow and voltage/frequency cur­ve edi­tor sca­ling for sca­ling rati­os grea­ter than 100%
  • Mul­ti­l­an­guage user inter­face libra­ry is DPI awa­re now. Main win­dow skin­ned inter­face is no lon­ger being sca­led by OS and no lon­ger looks blur­red by default when grea­ter than 100% DPI is selec­ted. Now main skin­ned win­dow inter­face can be manu­al­ly zoo­med with skin sca­ling sli­der in “User inter­face” tab, and the pro­per­ties are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly sca­led by OS accord­ing to selec­ted DPI
  • Added new skin sca­ling mode for power users. New mode pro­vi­des bet­ter sca­ling per­for­mance at the expen­se of some sca­ling image qua­li­ty loss
  • Skin sca­ling imple­men­ta­ti­on is now asyn­chro­nous, so increa­sing skin sca­ling ratio doesn’t increa­se GUI update time and doesn’t decrea­se GUI respon­se time
  • Skin sca­ling sli­der ran­ge has been exten­ded from 75%-150% to 75%-200%
  • RivaT­u­ner Sta­tis­tics Ser­ver has been upgraded to v7.2.1
