MSI Afterburner 4.6.0 Beta 12

The MSI afterburner 4.6.0 Beta 12 was launched on 31 Jan 2019 (one year ago). This version fixed the problem of Voltage/Frequency curve which was creating abnormal voltage tables on AMD GPUs. According to V/F editor is now also able to fit minimum and maximum P- state voltages and frequencies. Two new options ‘Mark minimum’ and ‘Mark maximum’ have also been added in the context menu. The user can also take screenshots by pressing <F11> key and later remove the watermarks in the Graphics folder.

MSI Afterburner 4.6.0 Beta 11

MSI Afterburner V4.6.0 Beta 11 contains V/F curve which supports AMD cards with GUI enhancements. This update supports MSI RTX 2080 Ti Lighting series, through which you can enhance your graphic card.  Now with the latest version you can control core voltage, power limit, fan speed and memory clock. In beta 11 user interface you can change language, time format and skin design. I like it’s beautiful dark green design in its new version.

MSI Afterburner 4.6.0 Beta 10

The MSI afterburner 4.6.0 was released on 16 Jan 2019 (one year ago). The features of this version were mostly for users testing only. Afterburner 4.6.0 Beta 10 is built for the use of forum-regular, experienced users and not for the general public. However, some websites have made this beta viral and kept deep-linking towards the download binary. This beta is an early, public beta. But given the ubiquitous use of binary these days the beta is made a public beta. It can be found on download pages and gives a secure and safe option to download it from. The new version consists of V/C curve assistance for particularly AMD cards and OC scanners etc.

MSI Afterburner 4.6.0 Beta 9

The MSI afterburner 4.6.0 was released on 22 Sep 2018 (one year ago). The voltage control for reference designs NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20×0 series graphics cards and GPU Boost control for NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20×0 series graphics cards has been added. Dual fan design has also been introduced on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20×0 series graphics cards with an updated hardware abstraction layer to provide support for multiple fans. The fans of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20×0 series graphics cards can be controlled in the manual mode while working independently. A thermal offset has also been added to check the temperature of CPU. Also, the “package usage” graph has been renamed to “commit charge”. MSI afterburner overclocking scanner application (created by NVIDIA Scanner technology ) has also been added but is only available for NVIDIA RTX 20×0 series graphics cards but only under 64-bit operating system according to

MSI Afterburner 4.5.0

The MSI afterburner 4.5.0 was released on 25 Apr 2018 (one year ago). In this version of MSI afterburner MSI Cyborg White Skin and on/off states of fan speed button have become more identifiable. Users can also use the backup/restore command switches to backup their MSI afterburners and may also configure settings from other restore points. According to option called “Show profiler panel” has also been introduced showing the user a detailed description of per- sensor polling statistics. Correction formulas may now also be used for sibling data sources. Incorrect tracking markers have also been fixed with the addition of Intel i7 and i9 7XXXX LGA2066 CPUs. The sample interval for CPU’s usage calculation has also been reduced from 1000ms to 100ms.

Plugin descriptions have now been added to the plugin window and a new SetupSource API function has also been added which enables the user to configure settings per his like. This also allows the user to customize the desired plugin directly from the data source or choose from the selection window. Addition of GetHostAppProperty API function allows retrieval of new properties from the host application. A new plugin for both CPU and GPU has also been added. A SMART plugin for temperature Intel and Samsung has also been added. Also, the addition of HwInfo, PerfCounter and GUI for AIDA64 plugins allows the user to edit the list of sensors exported by each plugin including customizing or resetting plugins.

MSI Afterburner 4.4.2

The MSI afterburner 4.4.2 was released on 15 Dec 2017 (2 years ago). In this version of MSI afterburner, the voltage control for reference design NVIDIA TITAN V series graphics cards have been added. According to”” bugs including incorrect group names of “Framerate Avg”, “Framerate 0.1% Low”, “Framerate Max”, “Framerate Min” and “Framerate 1% Low” have also been fixed. The detection for 3D application has also been improved which supplies data to “Frametime” and “Framerate” graphs easily when multiple 3d applications are running at a time.

MSI Afterburner 4.4.0

The MSI afterburner 4.4.0 was released on 06 Nov 2017 (2 years ago). This version of MSI afterburner has plugins for software’s like PerfCounter, AIDA, HWINFO with hooking facility of CPU, MOBO and PSU temperature variants. According to user can also plot graphs with labels from OSD graphs including time frames.

MSI Afterburner 4.3.0

The MSI afterburner was launched on 27 Oct 2016 (3 years ago). The new version includes the entire Nvidia GeForce GTX Series 10 including 1050, 1060, 1070, 1080 Titan X (Pascal) and AMD the Radeon RX series 480, 470 and 460. According to the RTSS is also updated.

MSI Afterburner 4.2.0

The MSI afterburner 4.2.0 was launched on 10 Dec 2015 (4 years ago). The best feature about this version is that it supports both AMD and NVIDIA graphic cards. This means that the user no longer has to switch between the graphic cards since this version of MSI afterburner provides the user with the same functionality of hardware, making the migration process much easier. The user can also design skins of his choice and can also change the localization into his native language. This version also supports third-party VFW codes, enhances RTV1 and MJPG video editing with accelerated encoding for hardware through NVIDIA NVENC, AMD VCE and Intel QuickSync. Video capture software with a push-to-talk feature is free now.

With fixed manual fan speed mode or default automatic fan speed mode, MSI afterburner also provides automatic fan speed mode which allows the user to define the speed of the fan by choice. In addition, the profile management system allows the user to create downclocking rules by preference. The memory 10 voltage control with Core 9 and VDDCI/PEXVDD auxiliary gives a more enhancing experience as compared with the previous versions.

According to, AMD Fiji graphic support processors have also been added along with AMD Radeon Software (Crimson edition) with “LegacyDriverDetection” which allows user to legacy driver version if there is a problem with the Catalyst driver. The MSI GTX980Ti Lightning series graphics cards with NCT7511Y thermal sensors and the MSI GTX980Ti Lightning series graphics cards with IR3595A+IR3567B voltage regulators. The temperature monitoring for CPUs between 10h and 16h is unlocked by default for CPUs with thermal monitoring. Brazilian and Portuguese localization has also been included.

MSI Afterburner 4.1.1

The MSI afterburner was released on 28 May 2015 (5 years ago). This version has an added voltage control of reference design NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN X series graphics cards and VIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti series graphics cards. A third party voltage control has also been added but can only run if a third party hardware database has also been downloaded.

Issues with maximum junction temperature (Tjmax) have also been solved where users can now ride the maximum junction temperature (Tjmax) through a configuration file as well. To monitor more accurately, the negative temperature has also been added for NVIDIA GPUs in all skins monitored by the application. According to correction formulas have also been added which help in modifying the temperature sensors.

Two new options “CPU load” and “CPU temperature” have also been added to monitor the CPU load and maximum CPU temperature across CPU cores currently being used at the time. A retry connection counter has also been included to the Logitech (LCD) module with an output format for min/max limits as depicted on the graph.

Load time for USF files have been reduced and moreover, new open skin files 10 times faster than the previous version of MSI afterburner. The multimedia timer resolution is not fixed to 10ms but can go till 16ms.
