    MSI Afterburner 2.2.0 Beta 3 is ready, this version took a bit longer because many new products are included, such as HD 6790/6770/6750. And of course, the new chip from NVIDIA this month. :nerd:

    Changes list includes:

    - Added core voltage control for alternate revision of reference design NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 series graphics cards
    - Added new compatibility option to "General" tab, allowing you to select GPU
    type on some graphics card models using different GPU types (e.g. low-leakage and high-leakage Cayman GPUs on RADEON 6950 series graphics cards). The option affects default reference GPU voltage and 3D voltage control path
    - Added memory and VRM temperature monitoring for custom design MSI N580GTX Lightning series graphics cards with NCT7718W thermal sensors
    - Added memory and VRM temperature monitoring for custom design MSI R6970 Lightning series graphics cards with NCT7718W thermal sensors
    - Updated MSI On-Screen Display server:
    - Fixed resource leak in desktop video capture path, causing it to start capturing plain black frames instead of desktop after a few minutes of desktop video capture
    - Fixed issue causing frames in video stream to be periodically duplicated during desktop video capture causing video stream to be longer than it is supposed tobe. This could cause audio/video de-synchronization after a few minutes of desktop video capture
    - Improved OpenGL On-Screen Display coordinates calculation for framebuffer
    coordinate space mode
    - Added custom raster 3D fonts support to On-Screen Display in addition to the previously available vector 2D / 3D fonts. On-Screen Display 3D mode rendering mode switch has been replaced with new vector 2D / vector 3D / raster 3D rendering modes switch
    - Now On-Screen Display coordinates are specified in pixels instead of zoomed units
    - Now it is possible to use drag-and-drop in On-Screen Display preview window to adjust On-Screen Display position
    - Now On-Screen Display supports tabulation symbols for better appearance in conjunction with variable width custom fonts
    - Updated Korean localization
    - Added Simplified Chinese localization
    - Added Indonesian localization

    What's the difference between high leakage & low leakage? Can't get the context menu to show up.

    Hi Alexey ,

    + found a typo in the english : Program Files \MSI Afterburner \ Help \ Properties \ General \ = in the file "GPU_TYPE"

    Hints:
    - Graphics processor type selection affects curretnly selected master GPU only, please re-open this window after changing master GPU selection to select new GPU type for it.

    This is probably a silly question but how do raster 3D fonts compare to vector fonts in terms of performance?

    Absolutely not a silly, quite opposite - really interesting one. Raster fonts are faster (and under some conditions significally faster) than vector ones. When vector fonts are in use each character is rendered as a set of triangles (average 8-16 triangles per symbol), when raster fonts are in use each character is always a textured quad consisting of just 2 triangles. Also, raster fonts use vertex buffers and textures located in onboard videomemory, which speeds up rendering as well. However, managing those additional textures and vertex buffers addds more chances to be incompatible with some 3d engines so vector fonts are recommended for solving compstibility issues.

    P.s. Osd shadow rendering is also 100% free in terms of additional performance hit when raster fonts are in use.

    Hey Unwinder, can you give some details about these 3 diff. modes in terms of performance and compatibility .. atleast how you expect them to work out ..

    Sidebar "GPU monitor" error

    For the MSI Afterburner updates i get this error in sidebar, for GPU monitor tool.

    Only version 2.0.0 works good. Is there any fix for this ?

    Which option do i choose for the gpu processor type (high or low leakage) in the new drop down menu? I have a R6950 twin frozr II.

    Thanx

    The GPU is shipped randomly, so we have no idea which card or model will use different GPU type. :3eyes:

    Is there a way of identifying it? (revision codes / BIOS etc)
