Nvidia rolls out an Ntune

Bigger, better, faster, more

THOSE OF you who enjoy taking a virtual screwdriver to your expensive graphics cards will be pleased to hear that there's another version of Ntune out.

The software, an official Nvidia tool designed to scale up the clock frequencies on GeForce cards, is now at version 5.05.38. The release is designed to fix some problems with the latest Nvidia driver releases, 158.18 for Windows Vista and 158.19 for XP. In Vista, the software now plays nice with the User Account Control feature, meaning that you don't need to be running Windows with Admin privileges just to mess with some graphics settings. An auto-tune of your card is now less likely to result in a useless reboot, and there's more accurate reporting of clock frequencies.

In XP, auto-tuning is also fixed whilst an interface problem with radio control buttons might also have gone away.

While there are these fixes, there are no new features, however. So it's really more of a patch than anything else. µ
