Hi, i can absolutely assure the DEV Team of GPU Tweak, that after version 2.0.8.3 , not a single other version will run on HD 6870 DC cards. There was a ton of problems to make even that old version support it, to some degree, but it's a total joke to see that Asus drop the support right after that. There are like 20 threads here regarding the program not starting, and i can confirm that the particular problem i have is concentrated only in the Card i own.

All latest versions have been tested on win 7 and win 8 RP, for some time there was an error , about a 2bpainter.exe or something like that .... now the latest version don't even try to run .... just won't execute a thing.

Asus , this is a total **** ! and after 1 year of developing , You have made 0% progress , not to mention that Asus is one of the largest card manufacturers without a PROPER OVERCLOCING TOOL FOR THEIR RANGE OF SUPER BUFFED VIDEO CARDS. :mad:

Please, MarshallR, it's time to release a normal, final, all working version, or at least Add AGAIN support for the HD 6870 DC , so i don't need to use something made 8 months ago .....

Will appreciate any help or info.

Cheers...

I very much agree, ASUS GPU Tweak is the only program that fully supports my GTX 580. Its been too long, way too long please fix this ****

+3...... i have the Asus GTX 690 and it does not play nice at all ! Hence having to use another brand of software control which runs perfect (Precisionx). The bit that really scares me is that the Tweak tool lets you flash your card if there is any updates - NO WAY Would i want to flash my card with flaky software.

Move on with another software that work. Using Asus gfx card not limit to their tweaking software. Unless those issue address by the Asus software developer. I will continue using others and move on.

What planet are you on , MOVE ON !
I don't think so my friend ! I paid the best part of 1000 for my TOP End card and expect the accompanied software to Work !
I don't mind using another Brands software , but it does not look Good on ASUS !

Secondly - can ASUS Confirm a new firmware for the GTX 690 ? There is one flying around to fix some bugs only just released. Beings though its a reference card from Nvidia - all cards the same, will we be seeing this soon ?

Mate, you are not quite right. I will be happy to use other overclocking utilities if i COULD. My asus HD 6870 DC card is with a non Reference PCB and volt regulators. So no other software can control the Vcore. Only Trixx can, but i have almost fried my card yesterday, because when i hit reset to dafault in trixx , the software applies the MAX POSSIBLE voltage (which strangely for my product is 1.9v !!!! ) ! So there is no other option for me but to use GPU Tweak....

Won't MSI Afterburner work with the 6870 cards, admitted, I'm not OCing the Asus, but my Sapphire is a non reference card as well, and I use the MSI AB to get the same clock speeds with the Sapphire that I have on stock with the Asus 6870 DC

I am living the same world as you . Asus software R&D never their forte. We all have to wait for new update.

I have tried with MSI afterburner, but i could not make it run, if someone can .... i will be very great full , but as much es i know, it's not possible. The PCB is not the problem, the actual volt regulators are....

This tool would be more useful and accepted it if it functioned for a majority of cards. Have encountered NO problems using the Sapphire or EVGA tools AND they work beautifully.

it's very sad, that this part of the Forum - the GPU Tweak one, is actually totally pointless. We don't get any support from the developers of the software, because they don't read here, and they, by the looks of it, don't even care too much. This software was dated for March, as a final version. But actually it's still a buggy beta version. I really don't know how many people are working on this and how much , but i think for one final stable version 1 Year is enough, this is no photoshop ?? just a overclocking tool , and even specific for one brand of cards ..... total nonsense .....
I am totally stuck with version 2.0.8.3 and this is the last time i buy a Video Card form Asus ..... at least make the volt regulators standard so we can happily use Afterburner or Trixx or any other "working" tool !
