Modders rejoice! MSI has demoed, at Computex 2011, an Android version of it’s ‘Afreburner’ graphics card over-clocking utility. The app, which should run on most Android phones and tablets, allows you to connect to your PC running Afterburner via Wi-Fi and over-clock your computer’s graphics card to your heart’s desire.
The app will allow you to over-lock and over-voltage an MSI graphics card from your Android device while giving you some useful up-to-the-minute stats such as GPU temperature and usage using your device’s real estate.
The Afterburner app enables Android phones and tablets to monitor or overclock a graphics card by connecting to the Afterburner utility* installed on a PC over a Wi-Fi connection. For enthusiasts who like to monitor the operation of their graphics cards, they can now do so through their mobile phone or tablet, even while playing the FPS games, without having to use a separate display. For extreme overclocking enthusiasts, they can use their mobile phone to monitor frequency, temperature and voltage parameters in real time while their computer is running full-screen testing software. Key parameters can even be adjusted on the fly for specific testing scenarios to make breaking world records in performance even easier. You can even connect to your home computer and check how the graphics card is running when you are away, a particularly convenient feature when running scientific computing programs that utilize the GPU such as Folding@Home.
MSI will be demonstrating the Afterburner app of Android version at booth L607 in the Nangang Exhibition Hall at Computex 2011. Enthusiasts are welcome to visit the booth to experience for themselves the convenient, powerful, and complete monitoring functionality you have when overclocking with Afterburner using an Android phone or tablet PC.
