It worked once after I manually changed the hotkey in the file to something else then back, did a graphics driver update, and rebooted, but next reboot and from then on the hotkey doesn't work anymore.
It was a pioneering application that influenced (and in some cases was integrated into) the design of subsequent freeware graphics card overclocking and monitoring utilities.
Exploring and exceeding the limits of your graphics card might sound scary, but it’s actually easier than you think.
Riva Tuner currently works with Windows 2000, Windows Server 2003 x32, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.
It also works with the older Windows 98, 98 SE and ME, but without official support. It has since been licensed by computer hardware vendors and integrated into various overclocking utilities, including MSI Afterburner, EVGA Precision X (prior to version 16), and ASUS GPU Tweak.
Overclocking is a practice of increasing a component’s clock rate more than certified by the manufacturer.
Often, the action is executed on the central processing unit or graphical processing unit.
Nvidia Driver update, now Riva Tuner isn't working So I update my drivers to the new Nvidia drivers this morning (353.06, GTX 670 FTW) and now Riva Tuner is 100% for sure, not working.
I can't lock my frames anymore nor does the FPS counter show up.
In 2014, EVGA terminated its contract with Alexey and was subsequently discovered to have engaged in source code theft after releasing a clone of Riva Tuner that was claimed to be an in-house design.
The resulting community reaction caused EVGA to redesign its overclocking tool.
It was initially developed for the NVIDIA video cards.
