RivaTuner is an extremely powerful tool to tweak the graphics environment, giving you everything you need to optimize every type of NVIDIA GPU-based graphics adapter. With advanced technology, a program that allows you to overclock (Over Clock) the appropriate type of card and forms closely monitoring their activities.

If you are a gamer then this probably is the leading software that you would be interested. The fact that the game belongs to the new "killer hardware" such as Doom III, FARCRY, Battlefield 2, The Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion ... usually requires your video card to the new high-bandwidth afford a smooth frames (24 frames / sec). That want to get broadband video card must meet a variety of factors, such as bus RAM, core clock (core clock), pulse memory (memory clock) and factors such as how many cards each pipe command, delay (latency) of RAM. Except for the delay, the remaining elements parameters the stronger the higher the card. RivaTuner can help you intervene directly on the hardware through overclocking and memory clock staff.

RivaTuner best support NVIDIA cards, from Riva TNT support line to line GeForce 6800 DirectX 6.0 support DirectX 9.0c, and the Detonator line from 2:08 to ForceWare drivers. For ATI, RivaTuner only supports DirectX 8.0 from the 8500 line to the last line now supports DirectX 9.0c and Driver ATI Catalyst line.

- Some video card overclocking does not directly (because manufacturers are not allowed) so RivaTuner bear before the card allows this. But if you want, those who understand can still overclock overclocking thanks to tricks like changing, updating video card BIOS ...

- On the toolbar appears after you click Customize, you first click (Low- Level System tweaks). Dialog box of the same name appears. Overclocking your card at check-line low-level hardware overclocking Enable to enable overclocking function, select Detect when asked.

- At the Core clock and Memory clock, you can move the slider up and down to change arbitrary human pulse or pulse memory. Attention is not shifted out of position 2 top limit, if beyond will have a yellow triangle icon appears dangerous. Empirical use, you should overclock to about 10 to 30 MHz is moderate, if pressed too when on gaming will be damaged image was not clear anymore. To see your card can run at clock not just tune you click Test. If the screen is still normal, acceptable. You OK and then on the run game to see if any problems are not fantasy. If all were like that then you are on the Low- Level System tweaks dialog box click the Save button to save the settings into a separate profile and then checked Apply overclocking at Windows startup line. From here every time you open the machine up, the video card is automatically overclock Riva.

When overclocked, the card will work harder, so fans will need to cool faster card. You can adjust the fan speed at Fan card, check and check Enable low- level fan control line, choose Detect when asked. Enable Auto and mark lines at Windows startup Apply fan settings are optimal.

These are just 2 presents the main features of RivaTuner, the program has many other features in the tags of the dialog box and the other buttons on the toolbar.

RivaTuner is tweaking utility for NVIDIA and ATI display adapters running under Windows. The purpose of this utility is to give you access to all the undocumented features of Detonator and Catalyst drivers. Drivers have a lot of undocumented registry entries. In general, they cannot give you big performance boost but they can improve image quality and solve some compatibility problems. RivaTuner will help you to change all undocumented registry entries. It supports all versions of Detonators (now called ForceWare) drivers under Windows.
