To show the graphics card operating status more accurately, Afterburner provides a complete monitoring function: all important information including the GPU core clock, memory clock, temperature, voltage, and fan speed have a real-time on-screen-display monitor in games and real-time information in Windows Tray Icon. All the adjustments can be saved as 5 profiles, users can quickly switch to different settings with hotkeys.

The new version of Afterburner not only supports the latest NVIDIA GeForce 500 and AMD Radeon HD 6000 series of graphics cards, but also adds the Predator in-game video capture function. Gamers can now capture all of their most intense moments in their favorite games and share them with the world on sites like YouTube.
