    I need your help and who better to ask than the creator of RivaTuner? I have the Witcher 3 (legit game by the way) and my computer, even if it can hold 60 fps, is not always possible in the game, my monitor is 75 Hz or 75.004 for more precise numbers, I discovered that the game works wonderfully and very smooth with nVidia half refresh rate at 37.5 fps, not single fps drop. I used RivaTuner to get correct frame time, I did this:

    [Framerate]
    Limit=37504
    LimitDenominator=1000

    The game works wonderful, except when the frame decimals start to fight each other; when in the game, it goes 37.5, 37.4, 37.5, 37.4 and it does create some small stutters from time to time, I have found out that 37.4 26.6 ms seems to works better (it should not, but it does):

    [Framerate]
    Limit=37499
    LimitDenominator=1000

    That way, the frame rate is 37.4 all of the time, but I think the image is not a 100% stable, seems to have extremely small stutters, maybe its just me seeing things, but I think its there. At 37504 is 100% smooth except when the frame time decides to fight with 37.4, then 37.5, this is completely random and can happen at any moment. How can this be solved? Witcher 3 is the only game that presents this issue or at least, very, very often, I have seen it in other games, but like 1 or 2 times every 5 minutes, Witcher 3 is often, happens at any place.

    Can you help me?

    This is off-topic. You should have made a new thread. Btw, asking the author of a piece of software is not the best practice. If everyone does that, people writing software would do nothing all day long other than answering questions...

    Anyway, in your case, you need to use Profile Inspector and enable double vsync. Get it here:

    https://ci.appveyor.com/project/Orbmu2k/nvidiaprofileinspector/build/artifacts

    Find the Witcher 3 profile, and in the "Vertical Sync" option, select "1/2 Refresh Rate". Apply and (to make sure) reboot. There's been a bug in the driver lately where the setting has no effect until reboot. When the setting does not apply correctly, you get micro-stutter, which is why it's best to reboot.

    Then, go here:

    https://www.vsynctester.com/

    This will detect your REAL refresh rate. Divide the result by 2, subtract 0.007 from the result, and use that as your FPS cap.

    This should result in smooth motion and low input lag.

    AMD Radeon driver 17.7.2 and Beta 11/12 seems to have problems with Crossfire setup. Crossfire support games will stop working after 5-10 minutes into game play. I had this issue before with an older version of Afterburner and now it came back with the latest AMD driver.

    Is anyone else having a problem with 4.4.0? UWP apps won't work - force closes at launch, when Afterburner is running.

    Will Afterburner support 12 GPUs coexisting RX 4x0 , RX 5x0 , 1080 Ti?

    Will it support 12 GPUs coexisting RX 4x0 , RX 5x0 , 1080 Ti?

    Been a long time since I updated Afterburner, just installed the latest beta.

    Unwinder: THANK YOU for the frame time graph! That was my number one wish for the RTSS overlay. I can die happy now.

    Newest AMD Crimson Drivers not compatible?

    Heya, from Drivers 17.2.1 and up, I have been unable to change settings as Power Limit ends up greyed out and automatically core clock and memory clock are set to 0 anytime there is a change, however 4.4.0 works, tends to crash randomly.

    Thought I'd give a heads up as I couldn't see many mentions of it beside the crossfire setup below in the posts, this occurs with a single 290X and basically kills the ability to OC.

    While the newest 4.4.0 MSI Afterburner for some reasons just crash constantly with 17.6.2 but otherwise 4.3.0 is stable, gotta mention that I do use a Logitech G510s LCD along both of situations.

    Thanks!

    Not 100% sure if Alex already had posted it public, but I think the latest beta you can find in the forums has Ryzen temp support.

    Afterburner is better than nothing but it isn't good either.

    -I need additional limitations for clock and voltage.
    Sometimes when GPU is cold enough it boosts up to 2088MHz but at this point it's not stable any more and the drives crashes
    Voltage limitation via curve editor sucks.
    Just give two boxes to enter max. limits for clock and voltage

    - Curve editor adjusts other points automatically
    Why? I set up a pretty neat curve and I want to change one point and then the curve editor messes the whole curve up automatically w/o any possibility to roll back the last step.
    I would be happy to enter numbers in a spread sheet.

    - Why does the new beta show CPU-temp on default in the diagram? --> Should be choosable.

    - Scales for x- and y-axis in curve editor should be adjustable

    - fan curves should be part of the profiles and not hidden in the options --> for each profile different fan curves

    This at least and many other suggestions and complaints about the curve editor looks like it comes down to Nvidia Boost 3.0 that is used by Pascal GPU's, the separate MSI Afterburner sub forums here should have a lot of information on how this differs from earlier implementations and the limitations and other restrictions that apply when editing it.

    It's not really much of a answer but there should at least be plenty of info on this feature and how it works since it comes up very frequently. :)

    You're free to create your own tool and share it freely with community. Then meet a person like yourself and probably then you'll have a chance to undersrand why you just got into my ignores list.

    I'm pretty sure that you also have already complained about some product you used but you thought it could have been done better, haven't you?
    Have you ever made suggestions and got the answer that you've landed on a ignore list?

    You don't need to like me and I don't mind if you do or not.
    But think about Afterburner (and/or my suggestions) and think if Afterburner could be better or not.

    I am on Nvidia 385.41 drviers on Windows 10 16278.rs3, and for some reason... Afterburner don't see my Titan Xp (SLI) anymore. DDU reinstalled the drivers 3 times with the same results.

    When I set up monitoring it always reverts back to what it was prior to installing 440 beta 11.
    Eg previously I had several stats set to display on my G15 LCD.
    I then want to set up some stats to display on the OSD, I do that and it works for that session but when I exit and restar MSI AB or upon PC restart all settings have reverted back to LCD only so its not permanently saving my monitoring choices.

    Also, when recording video when you hit stop the little flashing recording icon never stops flashing so its hard to tell whether recording has stopped.
    This has actually always been the case for me no matter which version of MSI AB I use, for years even.
