ASUS Announces GPU Tweak III Open Beta. GPU Tweak overclocking utility has been revamped with an intuitive new interface, automatic profile swapping, and a development process empowered by user feedback.
- Overclocking at its Core: A revamped interface puts tuning functions at the user’s fingertips to provide an intuitive overclocking experience
- Personalized Touch: UI elements can be resized, reorganized, and recolored, and the monitor and OSD come with new customizable styles
- Set and Forget: GPU Tweak III can be set to automatically activate user-customized performance profiles for specific games and applications
- Community Focus: Built on years of user feedback, the entire development process has been reforged around constant community engagement
ASUS announced that today is the start of the open beta for GPU Tweak III, the all-in-one utility for graphics card tuning and hardware monitoring. With its fresh, revamped interface, GPU Tweak III places all of the core overclocking and fan controls right at the forefront to make getting extra performance out of GPUs is quicker and easier than ever. New customization options allow users to resize and reorganize the dashboard, monitoring window, and on-screen display so they can access the exact information they need at any given time. After tweaking profiles for particular games or apps, users can configure GPU Tweak III to manage settings in the background by linking programs
through the new Profile Connect feature.
Retuned and tested
In mid-2018, ASUS launched a multi-stage testing and feedback program for GPU Tweak II that culminated into a long-term open beta conducted on the ROG forums. Using the immense amount of user data spanning multitudes of hardware configurations, the GPU Tweak team improved the core overclocking functionality, tuned the backend engine’s stability, and rolled out new features like the OC
Scanner in a measured fashion. So, for the third iteration of GPU Tweak, ASUS aimed to build a flexible architecture that could accentuate
the varied use cases of its vast community.
Games and applications have different graphical demands, which is why overclocking utilities allow users to create multiple performance profiles that can be swapped via menu buttons or hotkeys. Through a new Profile Connect feature, GPU Tweak III provides an automated approach to profile management. After tuning overclocking or fan settings, users can save a profile and link it to the desired program executable so that GPU Tweak automatically applies preferred settings when the assigned games or apps run.
Community-driven development cycle
Beyond just modernizing the software itself, ASUS has changed its entire approach to ongoing GPU Tweak development. In order to make GPU Tweak III the best software possible, ASUS has built a community-focused development model that emphasizes feedback and transparency. Users can give direct feedback to the development team through a submission form on the new software web page, or
they can chat about their overclocking endeavors on the Official Republic of Gamers Discord server. New releases will be announced in both locations with clear patch notes and any known issues to consider.
GPU Tweak III is free to use, and the open beta is available globally for overclocking experts and beginners alike to try today. The first release is English-only, and other languages will be rolled out throughout the year. During the initial beta period, users are encouraged to try the new features in GPU Tweak III, but a stable version of GPU Tweak II is also available for users who prefer the classic experience. Development on GPU Tweak II will discontinue when the GPU Tweak III initial open beta period has finished.
