Afterburner 1.50 Final and Kombustor 1.0.0 Released

MSI Afterburner 1.5.0 and Kombustor 1.0.0

The final version of MSI Afterburner 1.5.0 is out. MSI Afterburner is a very handy overclocking utility based on RivaTuner technology. MSI Afterburner works with all graphics cards (NVIDIA and ATI) and is not limited to MSI’s products.

The branch 1.5.x of MSI Afterburner supports MSI Kombustor, MSI’s new stress test utility based on FurMark technology (by the way, latest FurMark 1.8.0 can be downloaded HERE).

MSI Afterburner 1.5.0 changelog can be found on the download page or HERE.

MSI Afterburner and Kombustor have been released in the same ZIP archive. You can download both tools HERE.

Remark: the version of Kombustor included in the ZIP archive at the time of this post is wrong (0.8.0). The official version 1.0.0 will replace version 0.8.0 very soon…

Let’s talk a little bit more about MSI Kombustor 1.0.0. This release fixes a small typo bug in memory usage. For NVIDIA boards, the PCB temperature is displayed (the same PCB temperature you can read in GPU-Z). And still for NVIDIA boards, clocks are displayed when even if afterburner is not launched.

Now, you can change MSI Kombustor settings with the standalone version (with the GUI – graphical user interface) and these settings will be used when the user will press the K button in MSI Afterburner interface:
