Version History

MSI Afterburner Version 2.3.0 (2012/11/20)
  • Added 9-bit VID support for CHL8318 voltage regulators to bypass 1.6V limit in Extreme versions of MSI Afterburner
  • Fixed rounding error in VID generation for offset voltage control mode for CHL8318 voltage generators
  • Now it is possible to start MSI Afterburner in limited functionality mode on the systems with no supported AMD or NVIDIA graphics card. This allows you to use hardware independent features like high-performance Predator™ video capture module on any PC, even if it is using integrated Intel graphics
  • Added frametime graph to hardware monitoring module. The graph is displaying the maximum frame time on each sampling period and it is useful for detecting microstutters, which are invisible on averaged framerate graph.
  • All documentation is now provided in PDF format
  • Added unified videomemory usage monitoring implementation for Windows 8
  • Removed obsolete GPU type selection settings for some AMD graphics cards
  • Removed obsolete shader clock monitoring for NVIDIA Kepler graphics cards

  • MSI On-Screen Display server has been upgraded to version 4.4.0. New version gives you the following major improvements in Predator™ video capture module:
  • Improved RTV1 compression algorithm. New compression approach combines DXTC, RLE and uncompressed data saving algorithms and allows you to increase image quality at the cost of decreasing compression ratio, while keeping extremely fast compression performance. Please take a note that the previous RTV1 compression implementation is equal to the lowest possible 25% image quality/compression ratio balance in new implementation
  • Added 64-bit version of RivaTuner Video Codec. Now RTV1 videos are playable and editable in 64-bit applications (e.g. 64-bit Sony Vegas PRO or Adobe Premiere PRO CS6)
  • Huffman tables are no longer omitted by MJPG encoder to improve compatibility with applications using limited MJPG decoders (e.g. Sony Vegas PRO)
  • Now both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of RivaTuner Video Codec can optionally decode MJPG videos. Third party MJPG codec installation is no longer required to play or edit MJPG videos with omitted Huffman tables in some applications with limited MJPG decoding support (e.g. Sony Vegas PRO). MJPG decoder can be enabled in video capture compatibility properties
  • Multisource audio recording. Now it is possible to record audio from two independent audio sources (e.g. game audio and microphone sound) in two independent audio tracks then mix them later in video editing application (e.g. Sony Vegas PRO) or optionally mix multiple tracks in realtime during capture
  • Now it is possible to downmix multichannel audio to stereo in stereo rip and stereo mix modes. Previously available stereo rip mode simply rips front left and right audio channels from multichannel audio stream, whilst new stereo mix mode merges audio from front left, right, center and surround channels
  •  WASAPI audio packets with timestamp error are no longer included into output audio stream
  • External VFW codecs support. Now in addition to built-in uncompressed, RTV1 and MJPG encoders it is also possible to encode video using external VFW codecs installed in the system. It is recommended to download, install and use Lagarith Lossless Codec for lossless video capturing or x264vfw codec for the maximum compression ratio, MSI Afterburner was developed to provide the best compatibility with these codecs
  • Video stream synchronization is now based on inserting NULL frames instead of indexing existing frames
  • Frame dropping implementation has been improved to provide compatibility with external VFW codecs using temporal compression and deltaframes
  • Now output video dimensions are always cropped to be multiples of 2 to provide compatibility with external VFW codecs
  • Now framerate is calculated on each frame with sliding 1000ms window approach instead of calculating it once per second
  • Improved rendering pipeline flushing implementation for Direct3D9 applications provides more stable framerate when capturing videos with VSync enabled
  • New dynamic Direct3D rendering pipeline flushing approach can decrease videocapture related performance hit when capturing videos in Direct3D applications with high rendering framerates

  • Now MSI Afterburner automatically fixes startup link if [Start with Windows] or [Apply overclocking at system startup] is enabled but the registry or task scheduler startup entry is missing
  • Startup profile is now displayed in [Apply at Windows startup] option floating tooltip instead of the main window
  • Now power users can enable optional DirectInput based hotkeys handler via the configuration file. DirectInput based hotkeys processing can seriously reduces hotkey response time in the applications heavily loading CPU (mostly 3D games) and leaving not enough time for processing standard keyboard input message queues. Please take a note that enabling such sophisticated hotkeys handling mode can cause some system security applications (e.g. pro-active application behavior analysis module of KIS) to warn you about possible keylogging threat
  • Improved skin engine, now skinned controls support horizontal and/or vertical centering. Skin format reference guide has been updated to document these new alignment modes
  • MSI On-Screen Display server has been upgraded to version 3.7.2. New version gives you the following improvements:
  • Now screen capture events are identified visually by text message flashing in On-Screen Display during 0.25s
  • Built-in skin sizes have been reduced due to optimized compiled bitmap cache
  • Added On-Screen Display profile for Startcraft II : Wings of Liberty
  • Added configuration file switch allowing sending MSI Afterburner to system tray instead of closing on button click
  • [Start the task only when computer is running on AC power] option is no longer set in the startup task settings to allow automatically starting application via the task scheduler on laptops or on some UPS models
  • Added optional data filtering mode for all hardware monitoring graphs. Now it is possible to enable special math data filtering algorithm independently for each hardware monitoring graph to reject misreading spikes caused by sensor access conflicts when running multiple hardware monitoring tools at the same time
  • Now it is posssible to use both core and shader clock as the primary clock when adjust the clocks in linked mode
  • Fixed videomemory usage monitoring for non-primary NVIDIA graphics cards

The log files captured with MSI Afterburner can be viewed in any text editor like Notepad or in graphics form in RivaTuner's HML file viewer (RivaTuner must be installed for viewing log files in graphics form)
  • Added new safety option allowing forcring constant voltage on some cards with voltage regulators supporting programmable dynamic voltage management (e.g. VT1165 or uP6266). New safety option may improve stability on some systems a well as provide power state independent voltage control on the systems with non-standard voltage control implementation
  • Screen capture and On-Screen Display hotkey events are now being processed via direct connection to the On-Screen Display server instead of command line. Due to this change Screen capture and On-Screen Display visibility control hotkeys are being processed faster now
  • MSI On-Screen Display server has been upgraded to version 3.7.1. New server gives you a lot of improvements including:
  • DirectX11 On-Screen Display and screen capture support
  • DirectX screen capture engine is no longer using DirectX runtimes to capture and compress screenshots. Screen capture and compression to PNG/JPG formats in DirectX applications is now handled by own more effective LIBPNG/JPEGLIB based library
  • PNG and JPG screen capture support for desktop and OpenGL applications
  • Adjustable JPG screen capture quality for experienced users
  • Screen capture support for DirectX10 and DirectX11 applications using multisampled antialiasing or non-standard frame buffer formats (e.g. sRGB)
  • Optional On-Screen Display 3D rendering mode. New mode uses 3D accelerated DirectX functions to emulate previously used 2D framebuffer access functions and render 2D text. New rendering mode provides On-Screen Display support in DirectX10 and DirectX11 applications using multisampled antialiasing and can also drastically reduce OSD related performance hit on the systems with badly optimized 2D acceleration in display drivers
  • Simplified On-Screen Display coordinate space settings. Rarely used desktop and window coordinate space modes have been merged into single framebuffer coordinate space mode
  • Now the server automatically selects framebuffer coordinate space instead of viewport coordinate space when viewport is not accessible (e.g. if pure Direct3D8 device is in use)
  • Improved application notification scheme during runtime profiles adjustment. Now runtime changes in OSD application profiles (e.g. OSD zoom ratio change on the fly) are reflected in affected application almost immedaitely instead of approximately 1 second delay in the previos versions
  • Reduced runtime skin engine memory footprint due to dynamic skin storage unloading
  • Improved race condition protection system for multithreaded 3D engines (e.g. Age of dragons : Origins and ArmA II)
  • Improved race condition protection system for the systems running multiple OSD applications simultaneously (e.g. OSD server, FRAPS and STEAM In-Game Chat)
  • Improved floating injection address hooking technology. Due to more advanced built-in code analyzer hooks can be injected deeper into 3D application code if stealth mode is enabled. These changes improve stealth mode compatibility with third party tools using similar stealth injection technologies (e.g. FRAPS v2.9.8 and newer)
  • Now stealth mode cannot be toggled during 3D application runtime to reduce the risk of crashing 3D application
  • Removed single screen capture per second limitation
  • Updated profiles list
  • Now MSI Afterburner distributive includes original 128x128 PNG application logo (stored in .\Graphics folder) for dockbar applications like RocketDock or ObjectDock

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 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)

  • Ineffective and slow temperature, clock, GPU usage and fan speed monitoring implementation provided by native AMD's ADL SDK has been replaced with own more effective low-level codepath. Due to new codepath hardware monitoring related CPU performance hit has been reduced drastically on the systems with AMD graphics cards and drivers.
  • On-Screen Display and Logitech LCD monitoring modules no longer explicitly read displayed data from hardware and retrieve cached data from monitoring graphs instead. Due to this change CPU performance hit is reduced when OSD or LCD monitoring features are enabled.
  • Fan speed slider position and numeric fan speed input field are now being refreshed in automatic fan speed mode only when MSI Afterburner window is active.
  • Added configuration file switch allowing power users to unlock unofficial overclocking codepath in AMD display drivers (similar to AMDGPUClockTool, ATITool and RivaTuner overclocking implementation on AMD graphics cards).
    Unlike AMD's official ADL SDK overclocking ways, unofficial ones are not limited with CCC clock limit but have some alternate disadvantages (e.g. PowerPlay support limitation).
    Please take a note that unofficial overclocking methods are not supported either by AMD or by MSI, so unlock and use it at your own risk.
  • Now it is possible to toggle performance profiler status info visibility in hardware monitor window via [Show status] option in the context menu.
  • Fixed L6788A database entry for AMD RADEON HD 4770 series graphics cards
  • GPU voltage monitoring feature is now locked and not available by default.
    Unfortunately some inexperienced users don't understand the risk of running multiple tools accessing voltage regulator at the same time and tend to use helper voltage monitoring features in everyday hardware monitoring sessions in conjunction with third party VRM monitoring tools, intensively writing data to VRM and periodically causing it to enter wrong state due to write collision. Unfortunately such issues are wrongly treated by certain users as instability of our product. To prevent such rumors, since this version voltage monitoring feature is no longer available to beginners by default.
    Experienced users understanding these specifics and accepting these risks may unlock voltage monitoring features via new safety option in [General]tab
  • AMD RV8xx I2C microcontroller is now being forcibly reset prior to starting new I2C transaction to minimize the risk of I2C collisions with third party tool without I2C synchronization protocol support (e.g. AMDGPUClockTool)
  • Added safety option allowing users to disable voltage control feature if it is not needed
