MSI Afterburner Review

Fernando Ortega
Official overclocking application from MSI
A review of MSI Afterburner by Fernando Ortega

With the MSI Afterburner application, you can officially overclock your video card which fully supports out-of-the-box usage and works with many different graphics adapters such as Nvidia GeForce and ATI/AMD Radeon graphics chips. It also supports overclocking and monitoring of other chips which are shipped by MSI.

MSI Afterburner is extremely easy to use and allows you to increase chip, shader and memory clocks instantly. By using the correct settings with voltage and clock-rates, you're able to achieve excellent graphics performance on your system and take full advantage of what your graphics chip has to offer.

The package also gives you the opportunity to adjust fan speed settings to ensure that your overclocking attempts do not permanently harm your graphics chip.

Along with some very cool tweaks which you can apply to your graphics settings, MSI Afterburner also allows you to benchmark your graphics; in this aspect, the program uses some code from FurMark. You're able to compare your performance results with those of other users who have submitted to the online service.

Overall, it's really cool that MSI has joined some other manufacturers and allowed users to overclock their graphics chips and we expect to see some improvements in coming versions.
