    Just to prevent possible misinterpretations I'll clarify once again: beta 18 WON'T fix jumping monitored GPU usage on 290 series, it is bad AMD driver's coding issue and it can be fixed by AMD driver team only. In beta 18 GPU usage artifacts (spikes/gaps) will be smoothed a bit due to adding special math filtering algorithm aimed special to correct erroneous AMD driver's readings on Hawaii. But the artifacts still will be visible and usage will go up and down, just not that rapidly as before due to post-processing data.
    Some users with no expect knowledge in this area tend to insist that it is still broken in AB simply because they don't see that pattern in GPU-Z. Which is not true at all and I'll repeat once again that GPU-Z is simply displaying different performance counter under "GPU Load" name for Hawaii, what you see there is D3DKMT performace counter and not a hardware GPU load sensor reading coming from AMD ADL API. It doesn't (and not supposed to) match with values which you see in AB, CCC or any other vendor's tool working with AMD driver. Those who understand that and still wish to see D3D GPU usage perf counter instead of AMD GPU usage perf counter will be able to edit CFG and force AB to display DX perf counter instead of AMD's one.

    Not sure if it'll help, but regarding the I2C readings from AMD being inefective, I have reported it to an AMD Rep I know and hope he can forward it to the appropiate department so that they can consider it fixing it.

    Unwinder, does this I2C slow readings also cause the GPU Usage bug where it jumps from 0 to 100% every second? Or only the core throttling (When using voltage monitoring for example)

    Thanks, and Happy New Year!

    Answered before, those are different and unrelated issues.

    Thanks, I didn't see that last part of the message. I'll let the AMD guy know. :)

    Woohoo new beta. Thank you so much. This software has become goddamn invaluable for me in the last few months. I see a few knobs and whistles have been added as well......damn if I know what any of it does (yet) but keep em coming.

    Merry belated Xmas and happy 2014 for all.

    Merry Christmas to All.

    I think I found a bug:

    When I select a custom undervolt, for example -56, click apply -> it will set it to -50. Always gets decremented by 6.
    So if I save a custom undervolt for -56 to autorun, every time the app runs it will get decremented, so -50, -44, -38, etc...

    Do you know how to fix this? Otherwise I can't rely on computer reboot, since the setting will change every time the app runs.

    Thanks!

    Actually it has to do with negative settings and rounding. It behaves differently if the voltage is positive. Works fine for +, but broken for minus...

    Thanks for reporting. Beta 18 is already submitted to MSI so I'll verify it after New Year holidays.

    Yes i have noticed this as well. It does it with Aux voltage as well.

    About AB beta 18

    • Regular and SE versions of MSI Afterburner are now merged into single installer. Added voltage control mode selection option to the “Compatibility properties” section in “General” tab. Now you can toggle between reference design, standard MSI and extended MSI voltage control modes

    This will apply on future MSI cards with unlocked voltage, like a future GTX880 Lightning ?

    I would think it's hard to say w/o crystal ball , w/o having hardware yet .

    We would hope there would be a way to alter voltages on up-coming cards .

    Unwinder EXPLAINED THIS IN A PREVIOUS POST AWHILE BACK!
    Takes voltage in 6.25mv steps. That's why using command line to set voltage offsets to I2C (hex value) goes in 6.25x (decimal version of the hex value).
    So passing 10 (16 decimal) is 6x25 x 16=100 mv.

    Passing 8 hex (also 8 decimal) is 6.25 x 8 =50 mv.

    Sorry if this is tied to the SE issue but...........

    Got myself a couple of 780 Ti Clasifieds and changed the bios to "Skyn3ts" AB version.

    I do not have any voltage control in AB beta 17 even after enabling voltage in the settings menu. Power target shows up as 300% ok.

    Sorry if this is answered elsewhere, or it's an SE issue, but I can't find it.

    There is no voltage control for non-reference non-MSI cards. And there is no voltage control for any reference 780 Ti cards yet.
