ATI Tray Tools – overclocking and monitoring software for your AMD GPU
ATI Tray Tools for Windows 10 is a popular utility that allows you to manage video cards from a well-known manufacturer. ATI Tray Tools has a wide range of additional working tools that help distribute the load of the device. It controls the work of drivers from the internal system, supports profiles, configures hidden functions. The program improves anisotropic filtering, stabilizes three-line elements, creates mini-labels, configures the latest plugins. It offers a user-friendly interface, flexible configuration of components, and is available in many languages.
After launch, the program hides in the system tray and provides convenient access to its functions using a drop-down menu. With its help, you can change the frequency of the chip and memory, adjust the frame rate of the screen, control the screen settings, and much more. The undoubted plus is the ability to create settings profiles for specific applications and issue full reports on AGP slots, PCI and your video card. All settings are grouped into separate items, of which there are 16 pieces.
General – основные параметры профилей пользователя, содержит следующие пункты:
Profile Name – profile name;
Executable – selecting the .exe file for which the profile is being created;
Parameters – command line parameters are set here;
Direct3D\OpenGL – in these fields, you can select a Direct3D\OpenGL profile that will be installed when the specified application is launched;
Delete outdated game profiles –deletes selected profiles;
Create desktop shortcut – makes a shortcut for the given profile.
Hardware – выбор настроек частот под определенные приложения:
Before – setting frequencies before launching the application;
After – setting frequencies after starting the application;
Take no action – the frequencies of the video card do not change;
Manual Overclocking – upload your own overclocking profile;
Use Auto 2D/3D – automatic frequency detection for 2D/3D applications;
Force to use Color Profile — force the selected color profile in the application.
Additional – дополнительные настройки профилей:
Exit from ATT after finish – unloads ATT after profile completion;
Switch desktop resolution to – the selected screen resolution is set before starting the profile;
Disable OSD support – includes OSD support;
Use custom FPS color – includes the ability to select the FPS display color.
Direct3D – video card setup for Direct3D applications.
Antialiasing –a way of processing pixels that make the edges of objects much sharper, the “ladder effect” disappears. Can be 2x, 4x, 8x, 16x and Application Controlled. As the values increase, the picture improves, but the load on the video card increases, and, accordingly, the performance drops. When set to Application Controlled, applications themselves control the launch of Antialiasing mode;
Anisotropic Filtering –texture filtering method, in which textures applied to polygons that are at an angle to the screen become clearer. Can be 2x, 4x, 8x, 16x and Application Controlled. As the values increase, the picture improves, but the processing speed of the 3D scene decreases. When set to Application Controlled, applications themselves control the launch of Anisotropic Filtering. You can also choose the type of anisotropic filtering optimization (Performance, Quality and Quality with Full Trilinear);
Texture Preference – texture preference level selection. Takes the values High Performance, Performance, Quality, High Quality;
MipMap Detail Level –This setting improves image quality by using textures of different resolutions for different objects in the same image depending on their size. When an object is removed from a 3D scene, textures with low resolutions are loaded, and when approached, textures with high resolutions are loaded. MipMap Detail Level takes the following values: High Performance, Performance, Quality, High Quality.
Wait for Vertical Sync –Enabling this setting will keep the frames per second from exceeding the frame rate of the screen. Takes values Always On (always on), Always Off (always off) and Application Preference (selected by the application);
TRUFORM – allows you to enable the use of higher-order surface geometry to create more detailed and realistic surfaces and characters in applications that support TRUFORM. Takes the values Always Off (always off) and Application Preference (selected by the application);
Refresh Rate Override –lets you select a specific rate for all Direct3D applications. Accepts the values Disabled (disabled), Same As Desktop (desktop frequency) and Custom (allows you to choose the frequency yourself);
FlipQueueSize –allows you to set the number of frames that will be rendered forward into the buffer. As needed, the processed frames will be displayed on the screen. Can help in cases where FPS “jumps”. That is, for example, the game produces 50 frames, and at the time of the explosion they drop by a fraction of a second to 25. To avoid a jerk, the video card calculates the frames with the explosion in advance, which minimizes the drop in FPS. It takes the values 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and Undefined (not defined);
Additional options – дополнительные настройки:
Alternate pixel centers — allows you to get rid of problems with unreadable fonts in some applications;
Support DXT Textures –includes support for DXT (compressed) textures;
Support Bump Mapping – includes support for bump mapping. This technology gives additional detail and volume to objects without changing their geometric dimensions, due to normal maps.
OpenGL Profiles Profiles – выбор профилей OpenGL. Предустановлены следующие значения:
Auto Balanced – automatic quality adjustment;
Max Ouality – maximum quality;
Max Speed – maximum speed.
Hardware –includes overclocking settings
About overclocking AMD graphics cards
When overclocking a video card, we have three ways: either use an increase in the frequency of the chip, or increase the frequency of the memory, or both. Which component makes more sense to overclock depends on the specific video card. Some models suffer from a lack of memory bandwidth. It is they who need to increase the memory frequency, but we must remember that it is impossible to raise it to infinity, because microcircuits have a threshold for frequency characteristics, and you should also take into account the layout of the board.
The worst enemy of overclocking is overheating, so you should install a good fan in advance if you want to run the card “to the limit”. It is advisable to know the manufacturer of your memory.
In conclusion, we can say that if you need a small program for overclocking, tuning and monitoring your video card, then ATI Tray Tools is definitely your choice.
