nVIDIA Inspector 1.95.2

5 day ago Orbmu2k released version 1.95 adding Monitoring graphs (logging and saving them), Updating or Removing your startup shortcuts and a very handy feature called Multi-Display Power Saving to his great little tool for nVIDIA cards. The later should be quite useful for those with multiple displays and graphics cards with GDDR5 memory onboard, since it provides an easy workaround by manipulating power levels to avoid flickering on secondary screens.

Ironing out some minor quirks, today he released 1.95.2:

  • fixed: closing mainform did not handle closing logic (settings, log) of monitoring form
  • fixed: temp folder detection fails on systems with empty temp paths
  • fixed: out of range error if nvapi reports incorrect usage
  • possible fix: csc.exe crashes on windows shutdown and prevents from storing MDPS settings
  • added: mdps now supports cards with p0 and p8 only
  • added: monitoring colors customizeable via config file
  • small fixes and improvements


TechPowerUp Radeon BIOS Editor 1.27 released

The new version TPUs popular BIOS editing tool for Radeon cards comes with support for voltage controllers used on reference HD 6800 and HD 6900 Series cards, added DeviceIDs  for HD 6950 and HD 6970 cards, tweaks to the HEX Editor UI and couple of fixes regarding changing Device and VendorIDs.

  • Added volt modding capability for CHL8214 voltage controller (reference design 6870 and 6850 cards).
  • Added volt modding capability for VT1556M voltage controller (reference design 6970 and 6950 cards).
  • Changing DeviceID now changes both locations properly (hopefully) all the time.
  • Changing VendorID should work in more cases now.
  • Added some new DeviceIDs (6950/6970).
  • Updated WinFlash link.
  • Updated RBE’s internal BIOS extraction method to account for “ATI” labelled “AMD” now.
  • Improved Hex editor interface a little.
  • Fixed method 1 overdrive hacking signature extraction for 6xx0 cards. Only superficially tested due to no available non-reference signatures yet.
