One of the lesser known features of the new Turing cards is a neat little software algorithm, dubbed as the NVIDIA Scanner. The NV Scanner API allows overclocking utilities to automatically find the most desirable offsets and voltages for your GPU after a 20 minute test. Under regular circumstances, this usually takes somewhere between one to two hours, depending on the individual’s experience.
The new beta of MSI Afterburner has support for NVIDIA Scanner on the older Pascal cards as well. Of course, this tool won’t fully utilize your card’s overclocking potential. but for people who are new to the concept should find it rather convenient. There are a bunch of other improvements apart from the inclusion of NVIDIA Scanner. You may view them or download Afterburner from Guru3D here.
