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.

MSI Afterburner for Android

You can use the MSI Afterburner for Android to monitor and overclock your machine from your Android device. To use the MSI Afterburner App you must have installed the MSI Afterburner Remote Server on your computer.

Install Instructions for MSI Afterburner Remote Server:

To access your machine from your Android device you must first download and install the Remote Server for the download links found here. Once you download the MSIAfterburnerRemoteServer.zip file from TechSpot, extract the file to your computer and run MSIAfterburnerRemoteServer.exe. Once installed it should appear in system tray. Click on it and copy the bottom IP address shown (you will need it for the MSI Afterburner App).

Configuring the MSI Afterburner App:

After downloading the MSI Afterburner App for Android on your Android device and installing MSI Afterburner Remote Server on your computer, open the app and click on settings. In settings select 'Host IP Address' and enter the IP address you got from the MSI Afterburner Remote Server (it should be something like 192.168.101.22:82). Once you enter the IP Address your Android device will automatically connect to your personal computer.

What's New:

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