MSI Updates Afterburner and Kombustor

MSI have released new versions of the Graphics Card software Afterburner and Kombustor. This release comes after months of developing and bug testing during the beta phase. For those not in the know, Afterburner is MSI’s overclocking software for GPUs. It allows the user to change clock speeds and even voltmod their GPUs, thus facilitating some pretty cool overclocks. Afterburner was updated to version 2.1.0 Final in this release. MSI Kombustor is a stability testing software that places a lot of stress on the GPU in order to check how stable the overclock, or the card itself, is. Kombustor was updated to 2.0.0 in this release.

New in this release is support for GTX5xx series GPUs from the NVIDIA stable, and the Radeon HD6xxx series from AMD’s. Furthermore, Afterburner also has a new feature in the form of Predator, which allows you to capture in-game video. Sadly, it doesn’t support sound capture yet but I hope it will in future versions. The name Predator is quite the headscratcher, though.
