Minor bugfixes, plenty of new features


A new version of RivaTuner, the powerful driver-level tweaking environment is out now with support for Geforce 182.xx drivers, a few minor bug fixes, and more than plenty of new features. Because the changelog in this release is so massive, we've decided to skim over the features we found to be most significant.

First off, driver-level overclocking and fan control for Nvidia multi-GPU systems has been improved, featuring optional independent driver-level overclocking and fan control support for display adapters working in SLI mode. RivaTuner now provides independent driver-level overclocking and fan control by default for the secondary GPUs in SLI configurations.

Driver-level overclocking and fan control on the primary GPU is still mirrored to all secondary GPUs joined into SLI configuration, however this behavior can be disabled via NVAPIMultiGpuClockControl and NVAPIMultiGpuFanControl registry entries if completely independent control is needed. Additionally, the ability to overclock and control fan speed at the driver level for display devices unattached to the Windows desktop (e.g. display adapters dedicated for PhysX acceleration).

In addition, the new version features an improved hardware monitoring module with a new sticky graphs mode specially designed for multi-GPU systems. It is now possible to stick any hardware monitoring graph to other graphs and view multiple overlapping graphs on the master graph. The groups of sticky graphs can be easily edited on-the-fly in both manual and automatic modes, dynamic master graph selection allows you to switch between multiple vertical scaling modes for any sticky graphs group.

The ability to screenshot capture any monitoring graphs has also been improved. Rather than relying on the
F11 keyboard shortcut, print friendly screen captures can be also performed by pressing the new "Capture print friendly screenshot" button on the hardware monitoring window toolbar for both realtime monitoring and postreal monitoring history viewing modes. The hardware monitoring plugin API has also been improved in this release. Now, the GPU index is passed to the API SetupSource function allowing plugin developers to implement GPU specific hardware monitoring settings customization.

Other noteworthy features in this release include an updated D3DOverrider v2.0.0 utility, a redesigned profiles architecture, and a redesigned user interface. The full changelog can be found here.
