Rivatuner 2.23 Released

The very powerful videocard tweaking utility Rivatuner has been updated towards version 2.23. The full list of this release' updates and fixes follows below. To download it, please click here.

What's new:
  • Added ForceWare 182.xx drivers family support.
  • Updated databases for Detonator and ForceWare drivers. Added databases for ForceWare 181.20, 181.22 and 182.05.
  • Added Catalyst 9.1 drivers family detection.
  • Updated PCI DeviceID database for NVIDIA display adapters.
  • Added reference fan duty cycle monitoring and low-level fan control tab for G92 based display adapters using integrated on-die fan controller (e.g. GeForce 9800GTX series). Please take a note that low-level fan control tab for display adapters using integrated fan controller is provided only as a workaround allowing you to control the fan if the drivers are completely unable to do it. It is strongly not recommended to use low-level fan control for integrated fan controllers if driver-level fan control functions properly.
  • Added heuristic driver version detection for unattached display devices (for example the secondary GPUs in SLI/Crossfire mode invisible to OS) under Windows Vista.
  • Improved driver-level overclocking and fan control for NVIDIA multi-GPU systems.
  • Improved hardware monitoring module, New sticky graphs mode was designed special for multi-GPU systems
  • Updated bundled RivaTunerStatisticsServer v3.1.0 utility:

  • - Minor skin appearance changes, "Normal" application detection level has been renamed to "Low" for better understanding.
    - Improved hooking system injects code into OS kernel's LoadLibrary functions by precached offsets and improves compatibility with some protective systems, faking the real LoadLibrary function offsets (e.g. latest revisions of SecuRom coming with new games like Dead Space, Need for speed : Undercover etc). Now such games no longer crash on startup when the server is running and LoadLibrary hooking is enabled by selecting "High" application detection level.
    - Added pre-created profiles for 3D applications, which require non-standard On-Screen Display coordinate space settings (e.g. Codename Panzers : Phase Two and Alpha Prime).
    - Added pre-created profiles for new pseudo-3D applications.
  • Updated bundled D3DOverrider v2.0.0 utility
  • Added experimental display configuration tracking mode. Power users may enable this mode using DisplayConfigurationTracking registry entry to force RivaTuner to track changes in your display adapters configuration (e.g. toggling SLI mode on/off or disabling secondary display adapter in the device manager). RivaTuner will reinitialize logical devices list and restart hardware monitoring module on display configuration change.
  • Minor GUI changes and improvements.
  • Many more (check revision changes)

If you want dude, I can make a simple guide tonight on how to OC, set fan speeds and the alike. At work right now so can't.

If you take the time to figure out how to use this utility, you will be amazed. It allows you to keep an eye on your video cards' vitals and sooo much more. I will admit that it does take some time to figure out though... not as easy as ATI Tool, but ATI Tool is really outdated and no longer works with my newer video cards. I really wish they would update ATI Tools... that program was the PERFECT video card tool.

It was ATi Tool that brought me to this site, I used it for years, reading and browsing this forum before actually signing up. I presume it'd be too much work for Wizard to get ATiTool back into swing.

Back in the fall I saw a post by Wiz and in it he said that he is working on a new stable release and the problem was actually with ATI cards, NV cards were working fine. He said something about it coming out either late last year or some time this year, basically when the issue with ATI cards is sorted. So according to that, he is working on it. I cant find that post now but if someone is interested in searching for it, its here somewhere, prolly in the ATI Tool section.

Any1 notice the memory clock is stuck @ 100MHz?

so now the memory clock for G9x GPU is attached to PCIE Frequency?
- Fixed idle memory clock frequency detection for G9x GPU based systems supporting memory clock frequency generator switching to PCIE bus clock (e.g. GeForce 9800GTX+ series display adapters)
