Ati tool 0.0.22 is released (this is a program wich you use if you want to overclock your ATI Card ..)
Fixes to card detection on some ATI chipsets Fixed "When setting the speed in the log the selected speed is shown not the actual speed it is set to." (#38) Added infobox about possible problems when FRAPS is running Removed fan control tab for 9600. Some fixes to "try to keep gpu temp at". It will only work while ATITool is running. If you close ATITool fan speeds are set to ATI's defaults Fixed temp. reading error which showed 20° on 9800s with high load sometimes Disabled creation of file C:\Atitool detection log.txt Fixed excessive log entries generated during Find Max (#29) Fixed 3D detection for XP SP2 + AMD64 (#25) Forced 3D detection on for all executables starting with "bf_vietnam" (Battlefield: Vietname) until a proper fix is found Forced 3D detection on for all executables starting with "nwmain" (Neverwinter Nights) until a proper fix is found Fixed rounding error in fan speed settings (#16) Fixed rounding error in font size display in temp. settings (#23) Added current fan speed display to fan speed settings (#22) Memory timings editor is active now - values are not permanent and are reset at reboot. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. Gamma settings are reapplied when display mode is changed (#14) Gamma settings panel shows numbers (#14) Added fan control option "Try to keep GPU temp. at xx°C" - this option is only available if temp. monitoring is enabled Added mini stats to temp. monitoring settings page Several speed optimized artifact detection code Dump bios button disabled on 9200 until a fix is found Replace temp. remote / local by "GPU" / "GPU environment" Fixed cosmetic bug in temp. settings panel (#15) Fixed bug with log file max. size .. the value was interpreted as Bytes (#13) Added include list for 3D detection No "scan running" message to log file right after start Fixed crash in 3D detection for 3dmark2001 and probably other apps Gamma hotkeys are disabled when gamma control is disabled Lots of fixes based on the great feedback after the 0.0.21 release, critical fixes are already incorporated into the 0.0.21 download Added option to scanning settings: "disable screensaver while scanning" Fixed ATI fan control. for some reason ATI defaults result in fan speeds > 100% to be programmed. This means that any fan speed >75% is actually 100% (can't run the fan faster than 100%). ATITool fixes this by setting the right register on the temp. chip. Moved fan speed registry key so its not lost every time you reinstall ATITool
does overclocking actually do any real difference? Not interested in halfing the lifetime of my r9700p for 2 fps more...
yes but its not a very big diffrence i got like 7 fps more in Far Cry ..
