[MSI] Afterburner 1.5.0 & Kombustor 1.0.0 Released

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Afterburner 1.5.0b6 just stopped working for me since the testing period expired, so I went online and found this!

For those who don't already know, MSI Afterburner is an overclocking utility for graphics cards (works on non-MSI ones as well).

Turns out 1.5.0 final is now online, and it comes with a new release of their FurMark-based benchmark/stability test, MSI Kombustor.


- Added videomemory usage monitoring for NVIDIA graphics cards under Forceware
185.xx and newer drivers
- Added GPU usage monitoring for NVIDIA GT2xx and newer graphics cards under
Forceware 185.xx and newer drivers
- Added VGA BIOS version detection for AMD graphics cards
- Added optional ability to display hint messages in hardware monitoring window
area. The messages notify the user about runtime profile management activity
(such as profile creation, removal or applying) and other application events
- Minor appearance tweaks in default skins
- Added compact versions of default skins (default green, red and blue editions)
- Now advanced MSI Afterburner properties also support floating tooltip based
context help system similar to the main application window
- Now MSI Afterburner supports RivaTuner's user extendable localization system.
Currently localization system includes default English, Russian, Traditional
Chinese, Spanish, Italian and Dutch language packs and affects context help
system and non-skinned advanced properties interface. Similar to RivaTuner
you can also create your own language packs for your native language and
share your work with MSI Afterburner users community!
- Improved skin format. Now skinned fonts support characters remapping feature.
All skins supplied with MSI Afterburner are using this feature, third party
skin designers may decompile and peek into these skins to see an example of
new feature usage
- Now hardware monitoring window font size can be redefined via the skin, third
party skin designers may decompile and peek into compact versions of default
skins to see an example of new feature usage
- Skin format reference documentation has been updated to v1.1 to reflect the
format improvements mentioned above
- Added shared memory interface allowing any third party applications to access
MSI Afterburner hardware monitoring statistics. The interface is intended for
future MSI Afterburner Vista / Windows 7 sidebar gadgets, however, the shared
memory layout is publicly open so third party developers can use it to access
MSI Afterburner hardware monitoring statistics from their own applications.
The SDK included in MSI Afterburner distributive contains open source sample
demonstrating the access to shared memory from a third party application
- Added command line switches for forcing MSI Afterburner to be minimized to the
system tray area on startup or during runtime and for opening desired advanced
MSI Afterburner properties tab. The switches are intended for interraction
with future MSI Afterburner Vista / Windows 7 sidebar gadgets. Sample code
included in the SDK also shows you how to detect, start and minimize installed
MSI Afterburner, how to open desired tab in advanced properties and how to use
MSI Afterburner profiles from third party applications
- Reduced runtime skin engine memory footprint due to dynamic skin storage
unloading
- Startup settings are now displayed next to the <Apply overclocking at system
startup> button
- Added button for locking profiles modification
- Now voltage control is also locked by default in safety options in advanced
MSI Afterburner properties
- Added AccessibilityCheckingPeriod configuration file switch for improving the
compatibility with AMD ULPS power saving technology on Crossfire systems. The
switch allows low-level monitoring module to use AMD driver API to check GPU
accessibility and detect and display GPU sleep state properly. Please take a
note that AMD API implementation is ineffective and hardly suits to realtime
monitoring due to high CPU stress resulting in periodic stuttering in games.
That is why the compatibility switch is disabled by default, enable it only
if you absolutely need to see slave GPU sleep state on the graphs and accept
side effects like performance drop and stuttering resulting from ineffective
AMD API implementation
- Added NVIDIA GT240M PCI DeviceID range to the core to provide more efficient
hardware monitoring via low-level core on mobile NVIDIA GT240 based systems
(bonus feature, official mobile systems support is still not declared)
- Graph limits are now adjustable in the graph properties in <Monitoring> tab
- Added AMD RV810 graphics processors family supports
- Added voltage control for custom design MSI R5670 1GB series graphics cards
with uP6262 voltage regulators
- Added voltage control for custom design MSI R5870 Lightning series graphics
cards with uP6266 voltage regulators
- Added voltage control for custom design MSI R5870 Twin Frozr II series
graphics cards with uP6266 voltage regulators
- Added voltage control for custom design MSI R5850 Twin Frozr II series
graphics cards with uP6266 voltage regulators
- Added integration with external MSI Kombustor stability testing application
- Added workaround for overclocking bug of ForceWare 196.21. Please take a note
that the workaround is applied only to 196.00 - 196.21 driver versions range
in order to ensure compatibility with future fixed NVIDIA drivers.
- Now hardware database includes marketing names of MSI graphics cards so MSI
Afterburner displays marketing names instead of generic graphics card model
names when possible


Version 1.0.0 - 2010-02-03
--------------------------
! Final version 1.0.0 compilation.


Version 0.8.0 - 2010-02-01
--------------------------
+ New: added clocks (core, memory and shader) readings for NVIDIA boards only when Afterburner is not running.
+ New: added PCB temperature for NVIDIA boards.
+ New: Twitter login is no longer stored in startup options file. User has to enter his login before tweetting.
+ New: the K button in MSI Afterburner directly launches MSI Kombustor with 3D window with settings set by the standalone version of Kombustor.
* Bugfix: Memory usage in MB.

Download from MSI (both programs)

Sorry, but I don't see how this isn't news. The Software News section is full of these "new-version-just-released" kind of threads.

This is the first non-CCC app I use for overclocking so I can't say.

Have to agree with you there...I mean there's a new thread for when eVGA Precision, eVGA SLI Hotfix, Foobar, and etc get newer versions. Why doesn't this get the same kind of treatment.

If that policy has changed, maybe a mod should go to through and clean up all the existing new software version threads in the news section.

Edit:

Perfect example on the same page as this (wanna know the sad part...these are all on the same page as this thread would have been...)

Utorrent 2.0 is released
Furmark 1.8
New Version of Chrome Is Released
New Version of CC Cleaner is Released
Phoronix Test Suite New Version is Released
New Version of iTunes
New ATI Drivers
New VLC Player is Released

Do I need to go on?
