The new version of MSI Kombustor is available. This version fixes a small bug that concerned Radeon cards and Anti Aliasing modes under DX10 and DX11 render paths (see this thread).

Since Kombustor has now OpenGL and Direct3D render paths, the old trick to rename the exe in etqw.exe was no longer valid. The solution? Renaming Kombustor in Heaven.exe 😉

Heaven is an OpenGL and Direct3D benchmark and has multi-GPU profiles (SLI and Crossfire) in NVIDIA and ATI drivers.

I took advantage of this update to resize a bit the MSI 3D model in order it covers better the screen. I also changed the fur paramaters to slightly increase the GPU workload…

    I have also found another bug with DX10/DX11 mode.

    On my Samsung P2370H screen with a ATI 5850, fullscreen mode the wrong refresh rate is selected.

    It goes in 30Hz interlaced, while DX9/GL2/3 it correctly selects 60Hz progressive.

    Interesting. There’s a similar problem on Guru3D forum so I will look at this bug.
