Dear forum visitors,

Just two years ago we announced the final release of RivaTuner here at the Guru of 3D and celebrated 5.000.000th utility download. That version was supposed to be EOL for RivaTuner project, however I simply couldn’t resist my favorite hobby so version v2.01 was announced after 5 months break in development.

A lot of things changed since that time: 15 new versions with hundreds of new features have been released, RivaTuner received full Vista support and signed 64-bit drivers provided by our best friends from TechPowerUp, RivaTuner became the first tool providing independent shader clock control for GeForce 8 and newer display adapter series and the fix for improperly calibrated fan control of AMD HD 3000 series, RivaTuner received protective envelope preventing Punkbuster anticheat system from crashing the system due to unauthorized scanning of hardware mapped memory, RivaTuner reached new levels of programmability and flexibility due to new task scheduler module, received DirectX10 triple buffering forcing and On-Screen Display support, received drastically improved support for multi-GPU systems, received improved hardware monitoring features, such as Logitech G15 LCD support, and many many other. We’ve also got great assistance in development from Point of View and EVGA sides and even launched new beginner oriented RivaTuner’s child project - EVGA Precision - in cooperation with EVGA.

So I do hope that this time was not wasted for nothing and gave each RivaTuner user something new and useful. And now, just two years later, we’re proud to announce that RivaTuner’s user base has been increased drastically, download counter has been doubled and we’re hitting 10.000.000 downloads in a just few days. We were hoping it to happen a couple months later close to upcoming Guru 3D birthday, but download counter is growing up too fast so we’re reaching the event a bit out of schedule.

Biggest thanks goes to you, RivaTuner fans and those who selected RivaTuner or its’ child products like D3DOverrider or EVGA Precision as the tools of your choice. I simply wouldn’t be able to invest that much free time into the project development without seeing that it really helps you. Also, thanks goes even to true product haters, regardless of your wishes and intentions you’re doing really good project PR job and give regular boosts to download rates.

Thanks once again, I hope that we’ll be able to double download counter again and celebrate 20.000.000 downloads a few years later. Stay tuned!

Alexey Nicolaychuk aka Unwinder, RivaTuner creator

Congratulations Unwinder!!!! I noticed the counter yesterday, and am waiting to see it roll over.

I'm glad this project did not die. It is the ultimate tool for anything GPU related. Keep up the fantastic work!

Best wishes Alex. Keep up the good work and keep your amazing piece of art up to date forever.
BTW in your very short RivaTuner description you forget about your flexible plugin support which I find a very useful feature.

Jesus, 10 mil...That's amazing. Congrats Unwinder!
Thanks for all the time you've put into making RT work like a charm. I've been an avid user since version 2.09 or so and have been using it non-stop ever since. Really great stuff for sure.

Many congratulations. I have been using Riva for quite a while now and I truly believe that your tool has saved my video cards from many many problematic issues. Your EVGA precision is also quite a tool.

Here's to 20,000,000

Great job and congratulations, Unwinder.

The world of Nvidia and Ati video card tweaking would be a in a sad state without your continued efforts in developing and refining Rivatuner into the fantastic program that it is today...

Sorry if I ever bothered you with stupid questions (and I know I did! ) !
I started using RT way back in the ancient history, when I had a P1, Chaintech motherboard with Riva Vanta card which was incompatible with the mobo's chipset (Via). This had caused a lot of crashes in games (Quake2, Unreal etc.) and after I unsuccessfully tried who knows how many "solutions" recommended by NVidia, Via and Chaintech, I stumbled upon RT. Problem was IMMEDIATELY resolved by checking "compatibility mode" box. Soon enough I realized many other useful features of this beautiful program.

Thank you.

Thier are still so many people that have not heard of Riva Tuner. Lets all do what we can to mention it in at least one game we play on line, one time. Something along the lines of "This game kicks so much more ass with Riva Tuner, I know I'm getting the most out of my card." Seriously, if Unwinder can take the free time to do all of this, the least all of us can do is give a 1 liner out here and thier to promote this great utility!

Wow, 10 million downloads! Tbh it doesn't surprise me, I've used RT snce a really early version I used to OC my rivaTNT 64!

Great work Unwinder, hope I get to see 20 millions d/l's, and test further beta versions.

Most people don't realize; without you work and effort, there would be little or no GPU overcocking today.
