Written by Slobodan Simic

Get ready for TriXXX

According to a post over at Sapphire's website, we might see another software tweak utility pretty soon. The Sapphire TriXXX tweak utility should be appearing soon and Sapphire has posted first details as well as some screenshots of its upcoming software.

According to the available details, the TriXXX will be able to, not only to monitor basic parameters of the graphics card, but also to tweak them in order to get a bit more juice from that Sapphire (and most probably other AMD) graphics cards. The feature list include options for overclocking the GPU core and memory clocks, voltage and fan parameters, monitor all the graphics card parameters including temperatures, fan settings, driver and BIOS version, support for Multi-GPU, Windows Sidebar Gadget option, profile settings and much more.

As far as we can see from the screenshots, the software looks pretty simple, easy to use and it is designed pretty well. The software is still not available but according to the link it should show up pretty soon, at least with support for AMD's lates HD 6800 series graphics cards.

You can check out more screenshots and details here.

Looks to me like Unwinder has been busy. :-)

Hopefully, there is a feature written in soon for all of these tweaking tools that allow the user to disable the OSD short of going into the OSD folder and renaming the RTSS to a .BAK. Punk Buster and the OSD server don't get along, and I don't like being without my fan profiles.

XXX were enough in the subtitle as a pun, don't know the point in putting them in the article as well since the actual name is TriXX.

BTW, when are the comments counters going to be fixed... I see "Be the first to comment!" too often.

"ATI Barts"? Wtf?

Other than that, it looks really good.

OFF: the 6850 has the same clocks of the 5670 :P

go sapphire!

The MSI Afterburner software which has been out for about 2 years now allows for custom fan control based on temperature. It actually looks like sapphire copied the curve based idea from MSI.

Still MSI afterburner doesn't support officially at the moment the HD6000 series voltage adjustments. If Sapphire which is a ATI/AMD partner releases such an app that allows voltage control and much more then why not? The more the better i say. As for the name Trixx, i chuckle every time i hear it, it's like Sapphire tricks for overclocking. [insert pun about tricks here]
