    I have an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870. It's in an Asus laptop, but I know MSI uses the same GPU in their laptops.

    The only thing I can do with AfterBurner is monitor temps and check clocks. It will not allow me to change any settings. It doesn't even show that it detects the driver, which is the Catalyst 10.7a

    I'd be willing to test out the software if needed for this card to be added.

    I overclocked my brother's ATI Mobility GPU with AfterBurner (it's a HD5470) did you enable unofficial overclocking in the config file? Because that is usually enough for it to work, same thing happened when I first tried to do it, whatever clock it was set to, it would reset itself so try enabling unofficial OC'ing because ATI locks clock adjustment for the mobility series

    Thanks!

    I tried that, and it works for clocks only. I still have no voltage control, but that isn't as important to me as the clock control is.

    Afterburner currently only support desktop gpu, and we don't have plan to support mobile gpu so far.

    Well I'm not sure you'll ever get voltage control as I assume that laptop GPUs wouldn't have an adjustable voltage regulator (either to save space or to reduce costs) but I could very well be wrong, either way you should be able to hit 800hmz core clock maybe even 900mhz without any voltage adjustments, but pay attention to your temps

    Man, how could you possibly know this without even knowing what the stock voltage is, let alone other variables?
