GPU Tweak II: Beta Testing Program

Welcome to the ASUS GPU Tweak II Beta Testing Program, designed to harness the collective intelligence of our passionate ROG Forum membership. This program serves two purposes:

a) to allow ROG Forum members a chance to sample the latest beta build of GPU Tweak II and the new features that we’re gradually rolling out.

b) to give members the opportunity to contribute to the next iteration of GPU Tweak, providing vital feedback that can help us improve things as we move forward.

Help Create the Next GPU Tweak

GPU Tweak II, our graphics card overclocking and monitoring utility, has quietly been evolving and improving behind closed doors for some time. As well as general tweaks and enhancements we’re also working on some new features that we hope you will enjoy. As with any software development project, it’s crucial to get some feedback and input from the people who who use it most - the enthusiasts, gamers, and overclockers who frequent the threads of the ROG Forum.

Round 1 - Version 1.8.3.5: July 3rd to July 31st 2018

The GPU Tweak II Beta Testing Program will be divided into rounds, each lasting approximately one month, and involving a new version of GPU Tweak II. Round 1 centers on version 1.8.3.5 and will run from today (July 3rd) to July 31st.


Here is an overview of the changes that you can expect to encounter in version 1.8.3.5:


OSD (On-screen Display)
Our new OSD feature sits front and center in version 1.8.3.5. It allows a range of key data metrics to be displayed in real-time during gameplay. These include GPU-related data such as GPU load, frequency, and temperature - vital stats to reference when you want to optimize your hardware for the best gaming experience.

We’ve also expanded the OSD concept to include Memo, Photo, and Position features that allow you to add text and images to the screen, and to customize where they're displayed. Please be sure to head into the settings area to try these new features for yourself.

The OSD is compatible with dozens of popular games. A full list can be found here. If you encounter any compatibility issues, please be sure to bring it to our attention in the feedback report.


UI Improvements and Tooltips
Those of you who are familiar with GPU Tweak II will notice that we have tweaked the interface in order to optimize the user experience. We’ve also added some tooltips. Simply hover over an icon or button to find advice related to that particular feature.




Advice About Beta Testing

The Beta Testing Program gives you access to the latest beta build of the GPU Tweak II app. As with any beta-level release, there is a good chance you will encounter minor bugs and some inconsistent behavior. If you come across a bug, make a note of it and make sure to tell us about it in the Feedback Report (below), this is where we will collect the feedback from users. If it causes system instability, you can safely remove the app using the Cleaner.exe utility provided below.


Downloads


Below, you can find download links for a utility called Cleaner.exe that completely removes the app, two documents to help explain the correct install procedure, and an intro to help you use the OSD feature.

GPU Tweak II Beta Testing: Feedback Report

To make the data collection process as coherent as possible, beta testers are invited to take part in a survey so that you can share their thoughts and feedback with us.

This thread will also act as a place to discuss the new features, however, the feedback report will offer our software development team a clearer picture of where we need to work to improve things. It should take not much more than ten mins or so of your time. Thanks in advance...

Thanks a lot again! 😄

Hi,

i have a problem with the last version of GPU Tweak its just simply not opening at all and there is no task to end it uninstall -install serval time there is no used.

any way to make it works ?

Why with ROG STRIX 2070S not appear the buttono for select FAN ON/OFF?
With my precedent RTX 2060 this button is present. Sorry for my terrible english.

Here's an interesting video from Nate152 where he is sharing his OSD config with us. Note the Republic of Gamers logo and "The Choice of Champions" text in the top right corner. Pretty neat.



Nice work mate...

Thank you Stewart

Watchdogs 2 is a pretty demanding game and on top of that, Frametime frequently goes high which puts a big hit on performance. Speaking of Frametime, could this be added to the OSD with a number to show latency in ms and a bar graph to see the blips ?

Is it possible to see temp and usage of each cpu core and thread ? After thinking about this question, I think Precision XOC can use HWMonitor that would allow this. Most of us use some sort of monitoring program, I use HWinfo, Hwinfo can do it with Afterburner through Riva Tuner Statistics Server. Is there a way GPU tweak II could use HWMonitor and AIDA64 to show more system readings without RTSS ?

I think it's good with the FPS, CPU and GPU readings standing out as these are the important ones and kept the other readings smaller to save screen space but.... Could/ Would it look better if they were all the same size with every letter and number done in ROG fonts and color code CPU, GPU, FPS or give the option to make any reading any color.

Example:
FPS: 134 with frametime
GPU: 1595MHz 61c 85%
Vram: 12400MHz 6455MB
CPU: 5000MHz 65c 90%

When using the slider to overclock the memory, it jumps in increments of 40MHz, can this be tamed down a bit ?

Here's one with Far Cry 5.

Note the logo...you can hardly miss it! It covers half the screen...meanwhile there is a whole lot of space above right of it that is wasted....maybe do something to rearrange the layout to make it more efficient and discrete. What a user wants from an OSD is information in an unobtrusive format. I realize the marketing department want the logo front and center and to cover 30% of a YouTube video...but...

I’d submit that into the google sheet, Arne. I agree, all of this stuff should be optional, not mandatory.

I have installed this on my Zephyrus M with a 1070 and I noticed it is causing a big lag in games. I even tried it with rocket league which is not that demanding the fps drastically drops with this software's OSD.

Actually it works fine now it was a problem with my windows update, can someone please let me know how to get rid of the text where it says "POWERED BY ASUS TWEAK II" please?
