    MSI Afterburner 4.6.1 Final
    Download page
    Changelog:


    Version 4.6.1
    information   Information

    • Added new MSI Touch of Modern skin by Drerex design
    • Added asynchronous dual fan control support for reference design NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20x0 series graphics cards. Please take a note that only 100% NVIDIA reference design dual fan control implementations are supported, third party proprietary asynchronous fan control solutions (e.g. EVGA iCX series asynchronous fans) are not supported and will not be supported in future versions. The following asynchronous fan control functionality is available:
      • Added new “Synchronize fan speeds” button, which is allowing you to switch between synchronous and asynchronours fan control modes. Please take a note that new fan speed controls are available in v4 skins only, v3 and v2 skins are deprecated and no longer receive new functionality
      • When fan speeds synchronization is enabled, MSI Afterburner’s fan control functionality behaves exactly like in the previous version, i.e. both fans are running asynchronically in default hardware automatic fan speed control mode but become linked synchronically if you enable manual or software automatic fan speed control mode
      • When fan speeds synchronization is disabled, you may select and adjust each fan speed independently. For software automatic fan speed control mode independent temperature curves are also adjustable for each fan

    • Improved hardware monitoring module:
      • Inverted hotkeys handling approach for multiple selected hardware monitoring graphs. Previously single graph settings mode was active by default, but you could apply some settings (e.g. “Show in On-Screen Display”) to multiple selected graphs with <Ctrl> hotkey modifier. Now such settings are applied to multiple selected graphs by default and <Ctrl> hotkey modifier is used to apply settings to single focused graph
      • Group operation notifier has been moved to hardware monitoring graph properties header
      • Improved backward compatibility with monitoring profiles created in the previous versions of application. It is no longer necessary to recreate the profiles having monitoring settings without On-Screen Display layout
      • It is no longer necessary to click <Apply> button inside the On-Screen Display layout editor after changing current layout, now the changes are applied properly on closing the editor
      • The progress of saving multiple graphs’ settings is now displayed in the caption of the application’s property sheet
      • Optimized handling of “dirty” flag for settings decreases saving time for multiple graph’s settings when using multiple subsequent group operations
      • Added new “Hide attached monitoring panel” command to the context menu of hardware monitoring window. You may use it to toggle visibility of monitoring window when it is attached to the main application window
      • Now you may press <Ctrl> + <M> hotkeys to toggle monitoring window attachment

    • Improved voltage/frequency curve editor for both AMD and NVIDIA GPUs:
      • Now you may hold <Shift>and press left mouse button on initial desired horizontal position in the editor window to begin fragment selection, then drag mouse cursor to desired final horizontal position and release left mouse button to select a fragment. The following functionality is available for selected fragments:
        • You may double click the editor window to reset fragment selection
        • You may adjust the offset for any point inside the selection with mouse cursor to apply the same offset simultaneously to all selected points
        • You may adjust the offset for any point inside the selection with keyboard cursor keys, <Enter> or <Shift>+<Enter>keys to apply the same offset or specify the same target frequency or voltage for all selected points

    • Improved skin engine:
      • Skin engine no longer crashes when switching between the skins having the same site with and without alpha channel
      • Added thumbless skinned slider controls support
      • Added alpha path threshold support for skinned slider controls

    • Improved skin cross-compatibility layer:
      • Extended list of applications supported by skin cross-compatibility layer
      • Various compatibility fixes for third party skins supported by cross-compatibility layer
      • Fixed issue with GUI stopping responding during adjusting skin scaling ratio on the fly in high DPI mode when skin composition mode was set to layered mode with alpha

    • Updated third party hardware database:
      • Added new third party voltage control capable graphics cards to the database
      • Added new third party graphics cards with multichannel GPU, memory and VRM temperature sensors to the database

    • RivaTuner Statistics Server has been upgraded to v7.2.2

    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.
