RivaTuner v2.05 is out


®®®

Recommended Posts

Alexey, the developer of RivaTuner from NVWorld.ru, has updated the recently released v2.04 and added support for the latest 163.xx series drivers as well as a couple of new features like experimental VISTA SLI overclocking. Here's the changelog translated by Guru3D for new RivaTuner v2.05:

Minor bugfixes:

  • Fixed I2C write routine for ATI R600 graphics processors family, which has been erroneously commented the previous version's source code.
  • Minor UI and localization fixes.

What's new:

  • Updated databases for Detonator and ForceWare drivers. Added databases for ForceWare 163.69 and 163.71.
  • Improved driver-level overclocking module for NVIDIA display adapters:
    • Added new user interface for independent G8x GPU family shader clock control interfaces of the ForceWare 163.67 and newer drivers. New UI includes:
      • New independent slider for adjusting shader domain clock.
      • New "Link clocks" option allows you to use either traditional shader/ROP clock ratio based overclocking or completely asynchronous shader/ROP clock overclocking. Now you may either tick "Link clocks" options and adjust ROP clock only, allowing RivaTuner to overclock shader domain using VGA BIOS default shader/ROP clock ratio similar to pre-163.67 drivers, or untick "Link clocks" options and adjust domain clocks fully independently.
      • New overclocking profile format supporting independent shader clocks. Please take a note that old overclocking profiles are not supported by RivaTuner, so you must recreate previously existing overclocking profiles.

      [*]Previously available power user oriented ShaderClockRatio registry entry is now obsolete and it no longer exists in RivaTuner's database. Previously available ratio based shader domain overclocking functionality is now fully covered by new independent shader clock slider and new "Link clocks" option.

      [*]New user interface is provided by default under ForceWare 163.67 and newer drivers under Windows Vista, however Windows XP owners can also force Vista specific overclocking interfaces usage by setting NVAPIUsageBehaviour to 1. If needed, shader clock control can be forcibly disabled and old traditional overclocking module UI appearance can be forced by setting NVAPIShaderClockControl to 0.

      [*]Power user oriented adjustable minimum and maximum clock slider limits have been expanded from 25%-300% to 10%-800%.

      [*]Added experimental SLI overclocking for Vista. Please take a note that I have no SLI rig for testing and development, so this feature has been added blindly and RivaTuner still doesn't provide official SLI support.

    [*]Minor UI changes and improvements.

RivaTuner is a complete powerful tweaking environment, providing you everything you may need to tune NVIDIA GPU based display adapters. The widest driver-level Direct3D / OpenGL and system tuning options, flexible profiling system allowing to make custom settings on per-application basis, both driver-level and low-level hardware access modes, unique diagnostic and realtime hardware monitoring features and exclusive power user oriented tools like built-in registry editor and patch script engine make RivaTuner's feature set absolutely unmatched.

RivaTuner is the most powerful tweaking utility for NVIDIA and ATI display adapters running under Windows 98/ 98 SE/ ME/ 2000/ XP. The purpose of this utility is to give you access to all the undocumented features of Detonator and Catalyst drivers. Drivers have a lot of undocumented registry entries. Some of them don?t affect anything, but there are some that are very useful. In general, they cannot give you big performance boost but they can improve image quality and solve some compatibility problems. RivaTuner will help you to change all undocumented registry entries.

RivaTuner supports all NVIDIA display adapters starting from Riva TNT family up to the latest GeForce 7 series and widest range of NVIDIA drivers starting from the oldest Detonator 2.08 up to the newest ForceWare drivers family.

In addition to complete NVIDIA hardware support, RivaTuner also provides limited support for display adapters based upon ATI RADEON 8500 and newer ATI graphics processors. All RivaTuner's features besides driver-level tuning options are also available on supported ATI hardware.

Just wanted to ask how do I change NVAPIUsageBehaviour to 1? Where can I change it? Thanks.

I don't get it, I have the 163.69 installed on my MacBook Pro C2D (8600mGT 256) under XP SP2 and just installed RivaTuner 2.05. I don't get a message, that the driver is incompatible and I seem to be able to adjust the frequencies, they're not applied though. I hit apply, close the window, go back in and they're back to 470/635. :)

Any advice?

Installed, tested, and Vista still has no tweaks as it did like XP with the 163.71 drivers. Yet again RivaTuner disappoints me, back to nVHardPage.

Bump! Anyone knows where and how do I change NVAPIUsageBehaviour to 1?
