MSI Afterburner — the best program for overclocking graphics cards

MSI Afterburner is a utility for managing the performance of graphics gas pedals. It is used for overclocking and optimizing the values of video card parameters for cryptocurrency mining, gaming, visualization of three-dimensional scenes in order to improve performance. Serves as a clearinghouse for information about the hardware configuration of computers and laptops.

We will tell you everything about AfterBurner: what this program is, where and how it is used, describe its features and functions. On the site you will learn about supported video cards, features of the application operation. Answering common questions.

The program is developed on the basis of RivaTuner — a popular in the early 2010s tool for overclocking video adapters.

About the program

MSI Afterburner is a program for improving the performance of graphics gas pedals, optimizing their cooling. Displays information about the computer’s hardware shell.

Application Features:

  • saving profiles with overclocking settings for different situations;
  • creating screenshots in three-dimensional applications;
  • The interface is customizable through design themes;
  • overlay display — overlay frame rate display on top of games;
  • hotkey control;
  • automatic profile management function;
  • monitoring and graphing of video card parameters: core and memory frequency, temperature, video processor load;
  • cooler speed control;
  • optimization of power consumption;
  • evaluating the performance of the graphics adapter.

It is freely distributed with an interface in 16 languages, including English. In addition to the latest stable edition, you can download the beta version.

User Interface

MSI Afterburner has a single-window interface. There are icons for accessing the main functions of the application, graphs of variables: temperature, core and memory load, fan speed and video card elements.

Program language, time and temperature output format, composition mode, design themes can be changed in the interface settings.

The window is conditionally divided into blocks:

  1. Frequencies — memory, graphics core.
  2. Device Characteristics and Program Control Panel.
  3. Voltage and temperature.
  4. Video card information.
  5. Create, customize, and delete overclocking profiles.
  6. Monitoring window, where the graphs of the specified values are plotted.

Program functionality

Afterburner has a rich set of options:

  • Core Voltage — Controls the applied voltage;
  • Power Limit — Limit power consumption;
  • Temp. Limit — sets the peak temperature, after which the overclocking settings are reset;
  • Core Clock — changes the frequency characteristics of the core;
  • Memory Clock — controls the frequency of graphics memory;
  • Fan Speed — editing of the fan speed curve.

Undervolting the core chip

The application supports undervolting to reduce voltages. Lowering the voltage and current of the video card core helps to reduce the heating of the device chip, noise of the cooling system coolers. In analytical form Afterburner displays: current memory and core frequencies, its temperatures, voltages, in graphical form — much more.

Underwinding is the opposite process to acceleration. It lowers the power consumption of the graphics adapter, and with it, its performance. However, the video card memory continues to work within the specified parameters.
