Dear forum visitors, I've returned after vacation with new version, which is entering closed beta testing stage tomorrow and is expected to be released within 1-2 weeks. Changes list includes: Minor bugfixes: * Fixed core clock gating detection code for G8x and newer display adapters. RivaTuner no longer erroneously detects core clock generator switching to PCI-E bus clock and no longer monitors wrong 100MHz core / shader clock under certain conditions (e.g. wrong shader clock on GeForce GTX 260 / 280 series in idle mode). What's new: * Added ForceWare 177.xx drivers family support. * Updated databases for Detonator and ForceWare drivers. Added databases for ForceWare 177.26, 177.35, 177.39, 177.41, 177.66, 177.70, 177.72, 177.73, 177.79, 177.83 and 177.89. * Added Catalyst 8.5, 8.6, 8.7 and 8.8 drivers detection. * Updated Catalyst 8.5, 8.6, 8.7 and 8.8 certified SoftR9x00 patch script (for Windows 2000/XP drivers only). * Improved NVIDIA GT200 graphics processors family support. Thanks to Jacob Freeman @ EVGA for providing NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260 display adapter sample for testing. * Added AMD RV770 graphics processors family support. Now almost all RivaTuner's features including overclocking, low-level fan control and hardware monitoring are fully available on AMD RADEON HD 48x0 series display adapters. Thanks to Hilbert Hagedoorn @ The Guru of 3D for providing AMD RADEON HD 4850 display adapter sample for testing. Please take a note that currently RivaTuner doesn't support direct access to RV770 I2C bus and flashrom, so VRM monitoring and VGA BIOS image dumping features are currently not available on AMD RADEON HD 48x0 series. * Improved set of technologies aimed to improve RivaTuner startup and usage safety in conjunction with other hardware monitoring and diagnostics related tools: o Previously used low-level I2C synchronization protocol is now also applied to driver-level fan control calls to prevent possible conflicts between low-level I2C transactions and internal driver-level I2C transactions. Please take a note that to take full effect the protocol must be supported by other tools used simultaneously with RivaTuner, so please ensure that you're using this version of RivaTuner with the latest versions of other monitoring or diagnostics related software products (e.g. Everest or EVGA Precision). * Updated bundled RivaTunerStatisticsServer v2.7.0 utility: o New server uses improved hook notification system and more aggressive hooks unload routines aimed to minimize the situations which require system reboot during server uninstallation. o Updated pseudo-3D applications list. * Improved hardware monitoring module: o Now hardware monitoring plugin activation wizard module enables ADT7473 plugin by default on GeForce GTX 260 / 280 series display adapters. o Improved memory clock gating detection for GeForce GTX 260 / 280 series display adapters. * Updated license agreement. New license agreement explicitly restricts publishing any links to RivaTuner on www.nvnews.net homepage or in www.nvnews.net discussion forums. * Minor UI changes and improvements. The most of changes are related to RADEON HD 48x0 family support, so I need a few experienced RivaTuner users with 48x0 hardware users for testing it. If you're interested - contact me via PM or directly via this thread. EDIT: Guys, I've selected about 20 testers from those who sent beta-program joining requests via PM. Thanks a lot to everyone who wanted to help with testing, beta-team is full now and there are no more additional testers needed. Thanks for your wish to help once again.
