Visit http://www.evga.com/precision/ for more information on this utility and to
download the latest version (mirror)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

System requirements:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7 (both x86 and x64 versions) with full
  administrative rights
- NVIDIA 6, 7, 8, 9, 200 and 400 series graphics card
- NVIDIA Forceware 96.xx or higher drivers

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Features:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- Quick and easy beginner friendly access to the most popular overclocking, fan
  control and hardware monitoring features
- Independent overclocking and fan control for multi-GPU systems. The GPUs can
  be optionally synchronized and the settings can be applied synchronically to
  all similar GPUs in the system absolutely transparently for the user
- On-Screen Display technology and Logitech G15 LCD display support allow gamers
  monitoring display adapter's state directly while gaming
- System tray temperature monitoring support allows monitoring temperatures
  while working in office applications
- Profiles system supports 10 customizable profile slots and provides beginner
  friendly interface for saving current Precision overclocking and fan settings
  to a profile and restoring previously created profile via graphical user
  interface, tray menu or programmable global hotkeys
- Automatic profiles management system allows experienced users to define their
  own dynamic downclocking rules on the systems with no hardware downclocking
  support or program different fan control modes for 2D and 3D applivations
- Basic screen capture features support. BMP, PNG and JPG formats supported

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Known limitations:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- Additional server process is required to provide some functionality including
  framerate monitoring, On-Screen Display, screen capture and automatic profiles
  management. The server will be automatically launched by Precision as soon
  as you enable any of the features listed above. You will not be able to shut
  down the server manually while these features are in use, that is by design
  of Precision
- Framerate monitoring, On-Screen Display, Screen capture and automatic profiles
  management functionality is currently not supported in native 64-bit
  applications
- Framerate monitoring, On-Screen Display, screen capture and automatic profiles
  management functionality can be incompatible with some third-party On-Screen
  Display software (e.g. XFire or Steam In-Game Chat)
  The limitation is not specific to our product, many third-party products are
  designed to be the only On-Screen Display products in the system and to block
  their own functionality when any other On-Screen Display software is running
- Anticheat systems of some online games may restrict On-Screen Display usage
  and block connection to the server when On-Screen Display server is running

Revision history:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Version 1.9.5  (published on 09.07.2010)

- Added fan tachometer monitoring for NVIDIA graphics cards. Please take a note
  that not all graphics cards are tachometer reading capable. So depending on
  graphics card and cooling system fan tachometer monitoring can be unavailable
- Optimized NVIDIA driver-level clock frequency monitoring codepath
- Dynamic overclocking and fan speed limits. EVGA Precision no longer uses
  static slider limits calibration and adjusts the limits dynamically when
  some external factors affect it (e.g. when minimum fan speed is limited
  by NVIDIA driver)
- Built-in skin sizes have been reduced due to optimized internal skin panels
  representation and optimized compiled bitmap cache
- Optional skin compression ability in the built-in skin compiler
- Now EVGA Precion uses previously undocumented power user oriented startup
  mode via the task scheduler under Windows Vista / Windows 7. EVGA Precision
  launch no longer requires UAC confirmation at Windows startup. Please take a
  note that Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 runtime libraries must be installed to
  get new startup mode working
- Now EVGA Precision automatically fixes startup link if <Start with Windows>
  or <Apply at Windows startup> is enabled but the registry or task scheduler
  startup entry is missing
- Now power users can enable optional DirectInput based hotkeys handler via the
  configuration file. DirectInput based hotkeys processing can seriously reduce
  hotkey response time in the applications heavily loading CPU (mostly 3D games)
  and leaving not enough time for processing standard keyboard input message
  queues. Please take a note that enabling such sophisticated hotkeys handling
  mode can cause some system security applications (e.g. pro-active application
  behavior analysis module of KIS) to warn you about possible keylogging threat
- Improved skin engine, now skinned controls support horizontal and/or vertical
  centering. Skin format reference guide has been updated to document these new
  alignment modes
- EVGA On-Screen Display server has been upgraded to version 3.7.2. New version
  gives you the following improvements:
  - Now screen capture events are identified visually by text message flashing
    in On-Screen Display during 0.25s
  - Built-in skin sizes have been reduced due to optimized compiled bitmap cache
