Nice but, really, doesn't hold a candle against ATT.

fatray, nTune is for NVIDIA only... Guess that's all you care about.

I love the simplicity and no-install by unzipping with 7-Zip. However, it badly needs overclocking.

This is nice, free all but why use it? nTune does the same thing, looks better and is integrated.

I know a lot of computers, but this programm is very difficult to understand for me. However it ain't for other people.

Had no problems installing it and running it.

Thnx to the advanced features, i'll rate it a 4

It's ok, but I really recommend nV Hard Page SE for nVidia cards. With the built-in previewer, you can really tell if things like 8xAA are worth it considering the performance losses. 4xS AA(not selectable from the nVidia control panel) seems to be nearly identical to 8xAA, and the framerate is between double and quadruple. :P

This and Rivatuner make tweaking easy and convenient and a great way to waste bandwidth. :-)

Uh... Duh... YOU were the one who made the "bandwidth" comment!

Someone below stated it used up bandwidth? Why rate something when you haven't got a clue...This program is a convenience, nothing more and a useful one.

last time i used a nv card nvhardpage was way superior to this. ati tray tools is superior for radeon. this is ok, but really gives no more options then ur control panel.

I like using this program in combination with Rivatuner to tweak my GF6800. Keep up the good work Arne!

User friendly and very low memory footprint. btw it's true that most of the functions are available on the driver config page. But this small utility is much faster to load than the driver config page. It's a must-have utility if you need to quickly and often change your video settings (like AntiAliasing).

I will agree this is not needed all the setings can be done by default driver pacage.More or less a waste of time and bandwith.

I know you get a thrill by calling other people "n00bs", but there is a reason for some people to use a utility like aTuner.

aTuner provides access to some settings that aren't accessible with all driver versions. I don't want to use the latest drivers from NVIDIA. I've tried them, and they don't work as well on my GeForce3-based system as the old 53.03s do.

I'll give this a 2 becuase you can do all this and MUCHmore through nVidia's latest Forceware drivers. And no, its not stable. Use coolbits to unlock the overclocking.
This is basically a n00b tool that does everything the nVid control center does. YOU DONT NEED THIS.

I'll tell you n00bs how.
Right-click on desktop, properties,settings, advanced, Geforce Whatever, and there ya go!

If you still prefer a 3rd party tool, then use powestrip, but this really is a waste of perfectly useful hard disk space.

er, since when is this an overlocker?

Yochanan reviewed v1.9.5.6177 on Aug 2, 2004

You can overclock a GeForce card without a 3rd party program, the feature is already integrated with the driver settings, it's just hidden. ;)

You can unlock the overclocking tab with X-setup Pro. It's in Hardware>>Video Cards>>NVidia>>GeForce.

Perfect, very fast and stable! But I always want to know what's new in new versions, so why they don't show us changelist?

Works well in conjunction with coolbits for quality/speed adjustments. I do prefer this for quality adjustments over Rivatuner, but both are excellent utilities.

Nice little app! But come on! No overclocking? I'm tired of Riva Tuner and that other stupid app. They grew and grew until they became goofy and hard to use. Keep it simple, but DO add overclocking! :)

Awesome..
I am on the "Addon-overclocking-please-thankyou" bandwagon as well.
Buttz: I most certainly do not. Why go 1600x1200 just to make your icons take up half the screen again!?!?

Another fine example of programming that serves the public free of charge. Many thanks! I would only use this program exclusively if it enabled overclocking, as it is no I use this and Rivatuner to cover all my bases. AAA+++

Dixon_Butz: Just edit the zoom.txt file, per the instructions shown in Zoomed Font-Size.txt. For example, if you specify 200/200, the aTuner window will be made 200% as wide and as tall as it is by default (the default of course being 100/100).

DivineDark

DivineDark reviewed v1.5.37.4523 on Aug 14, 2003

This is a great program that "could" be the only program that somebody would want as a video card tweaker but it still lacks overclocking controls and ability to change agp rate, sba etc..

Dixon_Butz

Dixon_Butz reviewed v1.3.9.4270 on Jan 27, 2003

Opps! There is a "Zoomed Font-Size.txt that explains how to fix it.
If your aTuner Window is cutted of, simply change the zoom.txt File.

The first line is the Factor in Percent for Zoom in Width, the second line for Height.
Just alter the values. Legal values are Integers between 100 and 200.

Very good. A very concise implementation which offers the opportunity to use preconfigured settings. It does not offer the variety of adjustments found in RivaTuner, but is instead aimed at the more general user who wishes to tweak their card without the need for a Masters Degree in GeForce Tweaking.
