    MSI Afterburner 4.6.2 Final
    Download page
    Changelog:


    Version 4.6.2
    information   Information


    • Added voltage control for reference design NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20x0 SUPER series graphic cards
    • Added voltage control for AMD RADEON RX 5700 series graphics cards
    • Added new MSI Steampunked, MSI Lightning Anniversary and MSI Mystic skins by Drerex design
    • Improved hardware monitoring module:
      • Added CPU temperature monitoring support for AMD Ryzen 3X00 processors family
      • Added thermal offset for CPU temperature monitoring on AMD Ryzen Threadripper 29X0 processors family
      • Added package CPU power and per-core CPU power monitoring for AMD Ryzen processors family
      • Improved monitoring plugins architecture:

    • Added API function for reading host application’s hardware monitoring timestamp from the plugins. The timestamp is updated by host on each hardware polling iteration, so it allows the plugin to precache and reuse some sensor data if the same physical sensor value is being used in multiple data sources exported by plugin. Such approach is demonstrated in updated CPU.dll plugin for duplicating the same temperature sensor value for all cores on AMD CPU
    • Added optional plugin unititialization callback function, which is called by the host before unloading the plugins. New multithreaded Ping.dll plugin is demonstrating new function usage to shut down ping monitoring thread properly
    • Improved monitoring plugins:
      • Updated CPU.dll plugin is demonstating AMD Ryzen CPU temperature monitoring implementation and optimal duplication of the same temperature sensor readback for all CPU cores
      • Added new Ping.dll plugin for monitoring ping to desired server via ICMP echo requests. Please take a note that the plugin is configured to monitor ping to www.guru3d.com by default, it is up to you to specify target server name or IP address in the plugin properties

    • Improved skin engine:
      • Optimized skin rendering performance for skins using multiple overlapped animated indicators
      • Added position smoothing support to skinned indicators
      • Now skinned applications can forcibly disable indicator animation if necessary
      • Skin format reference guide has been updated to v1.8 to document these changes

    • Updated IO driver provides more secure MMIO and MSR access interface
    • RivaTuner Statistics Server has been upgraded to v7.2.3

    Some important security information that was posted from Unwinder(the developer of RTSS Riva Tuner Statistics Server):

    From yesterday 22-Sep-17
    And now some sad news. MSI digital signature, which we used to locally sign RTSS betas here (and this way make it BattleEye and EAC friendly) just expired, which means that it can no longer be used to sign new RTSS beta builds. Renewed MSI signature is more secure and due to that is cannot be used to sign anything outside MSI HQ, so I cannot locally sign future RTSS betas with it too. Building any beta (which I release on daily basis sometimes during testing) inside MSI is not an option too. So newer beta versions will not work with EAC and BattleEye enabled games, but at least we'll be able to sign official RTSS releases inside MSI.
    We're still thinking how to improve the process, but be ready to the worst case (i.e. only official releases signed) too.

    Then from today 23-Sep-17
    Guys, a few posts above I mentioned sad code signing related problems caused by expired MSI code signing certificate. I'm happy to declare that we seem to have found a solution. While MSI are still actively trying to get it possible for me to use their renewed signature here, the final result and ETA are rather unpredictable. I wanted to cover our backs and avoid delaying new beta launch and making you wait because of it, so I decided to purchase my own alternate code signing certificate and use it in meanwhile. It was a tough weekend, but I'd really like to thank StartCom code signing certificate provider for their extremely fast service, the process of personal verification and issuing the certificate took just about 24 hours, normally it takes much much much much longer. So since the next beta I'll be signing RTSS with it my personal signature instead of MSI signature. Yes, it will take some time (weeks?) for EAC and BattleEye to adopt to and whitelist new signature, but once it is done - everything should be smooth with future RTSS betas.

    4.4.0 beta 17 up for grabs: RTSS 6.7.0 beta 1 | Page 38 | guru3D Forums

    The major key features of new release are:

    - Hardware monitoring plugins support, now you can monitor more data out of box and can create your own sensors and share your work with community
    - OSD layout editor. Now you can customize modern OSD layout in details
    - Improved programmable critical thresholds in hardware monitoring module. Now you can configure you system to play sound alarm or perform emergency actions (e.g. downclock GPU, boost fan speed or even power down the system) when some monitored parameter reach critical value



    Full changes list (comparing to beta 16) includes:
    - Added thermal offsets for CPU temperatures displayed on AMD Threadripper CPU family
    - Original RivaTuner’s task scheduler functionality is back! Now you may define optional minimum and (or) maximum thresholds for any graph in hardware monitor module to track the most critical hardware health parameters, to be notified on reaching a critical threshold and to program some emergency actions (e.g. system shutdown) to be performed in this case:
    o User defined thresholds are displayed on each graph to allow you to control each parameter safety zone visually
    o When the threshold is reached blinking warning icon is displayed in top left corner of monitoring window and in Logitech keyboard LCD if graph LCD display mode is selected
    o When the threshold is reached you can see the name of graph triggering the alarm in hardware monitoring status line
    o When the threshold is reached background of the graph triggering the alarm is highlighted with color to allow you to identify it visually
    o When modern On-Screen Display layout is selected, parameters triggering the alarm are highlighted by color in On-Screen Display to allow you to identify it easily
    o You may enable option alarm sound notification to be played when the threshold is reached
    o You may configure MSI Afterburner to launch any external application when the threshold is reached. This feature allows you to implement many different scenarios, e.g. perform emergency system shutdown or apply safe profile with reduced overclocking, maximized fan speed etc. In addition to selecting any custom external applications, built-in predefined applications browser allows you to select some common typical usage scenarios, such as command line based MSI Afterburner profile activation or system shutdown
    - Original RivaTuner’s user extendable hardware monitoring plugins architecture is back! Now you may extend the list of hardware monitoring data sources with built-in or third party plugin modules, develop your own plugins to provide support for custom hardware sensors and share your work with community, and many more:
    o The plugins can use full set of MSI Afterburner’s low-level hardware access functionality: enumerate GPUs, access GPU registers, enumerate GPU I2C buses and access I2C devices, access CPU MSR registers, access IO ports and PCI configuration space registers. This way you can easily create your own plugins providing hardware monitoring functionality for any custom hardware. You can also create the plugins for importing OS-specific or third-party software specific performance counters into MSI Afterburner
    o Open source SDK, demonstrating hardware monitoring plugins development principles to third party programmers. The SDK includes the following open source plugins:
    + SMART.dll – demonstrates HDD SMART attributes readback and HDD temperature monitoring
    + PerfCounter.dll – demonstrates the principles of importing native OS performance counters into MSI Afterburner. The list of imported performance counters includes but not limited to hard drive usage, hard disk read and write rates, free disk space on system partition, network download and upload rates. You may also add any other performance counter visible to OS (e.g. disk queue size or some specific process CPU usage) via editing the plugin configuration file
    + AIDA64.dll – demonstrates the principles of importing sensors from AIDA64 application via shared memory interface. The list of imported performance counters includes but not limited to motherboard temperature, CPU socket temperature, CPU fan speed, CPU voltage, CPU package power, +3.3V, +5V and +12V voltages. You may also add any other sensors available in AIDA64 via editing the plugin configuration file
    + HwInfo.dll - imports sensors from HWiNFO32/64 application via shared memory interface. The list of imported performance counters includes but not limited to motherboard temperature, CPU socket temperature, CPU fan speed, CPU voltage, CPU package power, +3.3V, +5V and +12V voltages. You may also add any other sensors available in HWiNFO32/64 via editing the plugin configuration file. Please take a not that the plugin is not open source per HWiNFO developer request
    - Added ability to define a hotkey for hardware monitoring logging start and stop
    - Now the path to hardware monitoring logs supports macro names:
    o You may use new %ABDir% macro in the path to specify relative path to current MSI Afterburner installation directory. This macro allows you to use logging if you are using portal installation and start MSI Afterburner from removable drive
    o You may use new %Time% macro in the path to make hardware monitoring sessions to be stored in unique timestamp-named log files instead of single multi-session log file
    - Changed hardware monitoring properties layout, the controls have been reordered a bit to give more compact and convenient look to the properties
    - Improved multiple selection functionality:
    o Now you may hold <Shift> key when clicking a checkmark next to a graph name in the list of active hardware monitoring graphs to enable or disable all graphs at once
    o Now you may hold <Shift> or <Ctrl> keys to select multiple items in the list of active hardware monitoring graphs. The following functionality is available for multiple selected hardware monitoring graphs:
    + When multiple hardware monitoring graphs are selected, you may hold <Ctrl> key when changing graph specific On-Screen Display, Logitech keyboard LCD and tray icon related properties (e.g. “Show in On-Screen Display” property) to change it synchronically for all selected graphs
    + When multiple hardware monitoring graphs are selected, you may hold <Ctrl> when clicking a checkmark next to a graph name in the list of active hardware monitoring graphs to enable or disable all selected graphs at once
    - RTSS updated to version 7.0.0 beta 29. RTSS related changes were documented before.
