MSI Afterburner 4.6.5 Stable Version Released

Previously, reports suggested that the highly acclaimed graphics card overclocking software, MSI Afterburner, might cease maintenance and updates due to a lack of sufficient funding amidst the conflict between Russia and Ukraine. However, MSI subsequently issued a statement confirming the continued use of MSI Afterburner, noting their relentless pursuit of solutions and expressing hope for a swift resolution to the issue.

According to Guru 3D, after persistent efforts, MSI Afterburner has finally received an update, introducing version 4.6.5 stable.

This version encompasses numerous changes, including added support for NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 series graphics cards; enhanced compatibility with the GA103-based GeForce RTX 3060 Ti featuring GDDR6X memory; new support for AMD Radeon RX 7900 series graphics cards; the addition of future AMD and NVIDIA GPU PCI DeviceIDs to the hardware database; hardware monitoring module support for Intel Iris graphics cards; increased support for AMD Ryzen 7000 series processors; improvements to the SMART.dll monitoring plugin, including temperature monitoring support for NVMe devices; an enhanced calibration parser; and other refinements.

MSI Afterburner has long been the first software that comes to mind for many gamers when discussing GPU overclocking. For over a decade, it has been widely employed by gamers and overclocking enthusiasts alike. MSI’s success with this software has inspired numerous competitors to develop similar products. The last stable version was released in December 2021. The lengthy absence of updates has provided opportunities for malicious actors to create phishing websites posing as official download sources, resulting in security risks.
