NVIDIA Inspector

NVIDIA Inspector is a tool created by Orbmu2k. It provides detailed hardware information much like GPU-Z from all the available hardware senors pertaining to the video card. This sensor information can also be monitored via the included monitors, which in turn can be logged to a CSV file for later viewing. Inspector also provides simple overclocking tools to control the GPU clock, memory clock, shader clock, voltage, and fan speed of the video card; however, not all of these options will be available to all users.

NVIDIA Inspector's real power lies within its driver profile settings (game profiles). Inspector includes over two hundred individual game profiles. Profiles allow user-defined, game-specific Inspector presets that will be loaded and used when the game is launched. These settings are also more extensive than the settings included in the NVIDIA Control Panel.

Finally, this Guide does not provide the gold-standard of Inspector settings that the user simply copies. That would be impossible to do with the endless combinations of video cards and system hardware. This Guide does provide a breakdown of each of the Inspector dialog menus so users may be better informed about the capabilities of these settings and the applicability to a particular game environment.

NVIDIA Inspector Installation

The wonderful thing about NVIDIA Inspector is that it's a standalone application. There is no installation required. Simply download the tool and run the .exe to launch the program. This means it can also be run from USB flash drives and used on the go. You can download NVIDIA Inspector here: NVIDIA Inspector or here: NVIDIA Inspector

NVIDIA Inspector Overview

Main Screen

Inspector1.jpg

When you open the program, this is the first screen you'll see. Here you'll find all your hardware information. You'll also notice two buttons on the upper left side. The first button uploads a screenshot of the app to Techpowerup.org. The second button below that will open your hardware monitors. Further down to the right of the Driver Version box is a button that will open the game profiles plugin for Inspector. Finally, at the bottom there is a banner to allow you do donate, a drop-down box to allow you to switch between multiple GPUs if you're running SLI, and a button that will open the Overclocking pane. Clicking this button will prompt a warning about overclocking, before the pane opens.

Monitors

Inspector monitors.png

Clicking the Sensor Monitoring button will open the this screen. Monitors are discussed on the Sensor Monitoring tab.

Driver Profile Settings

Inspector3.jpg

Clicking the Driver Profile Settings (game profiles) button will open this screen. Game profiles are discussed on the Custom Profiles and Settings tab.

Overclocking Pane

Inspector2.jpg

Clicking on the Show Overclocking button and choosing "Yes" to the prompt will open this overclocking pane. Overclocking is discussed on the Overclocking tab.

Sensor Monitoring

Sensor monitoring can be very helpful when testing hardware stability, performing overclocks, mod testing, or when testing new settings or changes to those settings. Inspector includes 14 different monitors for this purpose. These include:

  • GPU Usage
  • VPU Usage
  • MCU Usage
  • BUS Usage
  • Memory Usage
  • GPU Clock
  • Memory Clock
  • Shader Clock
  • Voltage
  • GPU Temperature
  • PCB Temperature
  • Fan Level
  • Fan Tachometer
  • GPU Power Level
  • Total Power Level

Of these, the most useful are going to be determined by what you are using the monitors for.

Customizing the Monitors

To open the monitors, click on the Sensor Monitoring button located on the main screen on the upper left side. Once opened, the monitors are defaulted to stay on top of all other windows. The default monitors displayed are the GPU Usage, GPU Clock, Voltage, GPU Temperature and the Fan Level. To change the monitors simply right-click on the monitor window and hover over "Monitors". The monitors which have a check beside them will be the monitors displayed. You may display as few as one or all of them, if you desire.

The other settings on the right-click menu are as followed:

GPUs
This allows to you select which GPU you wish to monitor if you're using more than one such as in SLI.
Monitors
Provides a list of all the monitors available.
Antialiased Graphs
Makes the graphs a bit less jagged.
Always on Top
Toggle whether the monitor windows stays on top of other windows or not.
Capture Disabled Monitors
Toggles whether to capture all monitor data or just the monitors you're displaying via the Monitors menu.
Log Active Monitors to CSV
Toggles whether or not to log the active monitors to a CSV file for later viewing.
Store Configuration Settings
Selecting this will save the monitors your using for the next time you open Inspector; else, the default set of monitors will appear when you close and reopen the program.
Reset All Monitors
Resets the monitors to start fresh.
Hide to Tray
Minimizes the monitor window to the system tray.
Close
Closes the monitor window.

Info-Logo.png Notice: Some settings my differ from what is seen in the images below. Various options are available with various NVIDIA cards so do not be alarmed if there are extra or missing settings from what you see below.

Driver Profile Settings

Driver Profile Settings or game profiles can be opened from the main screen by click the Driver Profile Settings button located to the right of the Driver Version box. Game profiles are the main attraction with NVIDIA Inspector because when used, these profiles will allow custom driver settings for individual games. The profiles will then be saved and loaded once the game is launched. You may be asking what's the difference between the NVIDIA Control Panel profiles and NVIDIA Inspector profiles. The answer is, Inspector provides a more extensive set of settings and options than the NVIDIA Control Panel does. Many of the settings and additional options that are included in Inspector are hidden from the Control Panel for whatever reason but still exist within the driver. Inspector gives you full control over these hidden settings.

Setting Up the Skyrim Profile

Over 200 profiles are already included in Inspector and there is rarely a need to create a new profile. This is because the profiles exist within the graphics drivers, themselves. Whenever NVIDIA releases a new driver version, they often come with new or updated profiles. Skyrim's profile is one of these; however, if you ever need to create a new profile you can do so by clicking the "Create New Profile" button on the toolbar of the Driver Profile Settings window.

Info-Logo.png Notice: The follow procedure is done for Skyrim; however, the procedure is the same for all games.

To load Skyrim's profile, open the Driver Profile Settings window. In the text box on the toolbar, type Elder. You'll see four profile for Elder Scrolls. Click on the profile for "Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim". This loads the pre-configured profile for Skyrim. If you already set some setting in the NVIDIA Control Panel, you'll see those settings here. If not, the settings will be the default ones. We'll go through each section and setting below that is relevant to the STEP Guide. Far more detail about each section and setting can be found on the Advanced Settings tab.

Compatibility

SkyrimCompatibility.jpg


These settings should general not be changed as they are set to work with Skyrim.

Antialiasing

SkyrimAntialiasing.jpg

The settings for AA should match the picture above for the STEP recommendations from the STEP Guide. The STEP Guide mentions the two settings listed below. To further tweak this section refer to the Advanced Setting tab.

Antialiasing - Mode
Mode should be set to "Application-controlled". Apparently, SkyrimPrefs.ini dictates the level of AA, but the video card drivers can dictate the method of AA, but this is not for all video cards (see Antialiasing - Setting in the next note). The default AA method in Skyrim is Multisampling (MSAA), so "Application-controlled" yields MSAA. If set to "Override", default MSAA will be turned off in Skyrim, regardless of the Skyrim INI setting!
Antialiasing - Setting
In general, this should also be set to "Application-controlled / Off" to ensure that AA is working. Some users have reporting that changing this from Mulitsampling will effectively turn off all AA within Skyrim. However, other have reported being able to set this to Sparse Grid Supersampling (SSAA) and having it still working in the game. If the video graphics card can override the default MSAA and, subsequently, is powerful enough to handle SSAA without a debilitating frame drop, then SSAA will ultimately yield superior quality and is recommended. You can only know if this works for you by testing it in Skyrim on your own system. If you are installing STEP for the first time, it is recommended to test SSAA after you have STEP installed and issue free!

Texture Filtering

Texture Filtering

The settings for AA should match the picture above for the STEP recommendations from the STEP Guide. In the INI tweak section on the STEP Guide, you turned off Anisotropic Filtering (AF). Now we need to turn it on using Inspector.

Anisotropic filtering mode
This should be set to User-defined / Off.
Anisotropic filtering setting
Recommended value is 16x; however, a very slight performance gain can be achieved with a lower setting. It is not recommended to drop below 8x. Setting this to a high value like 16x as recommended, may cause texture shimmering in mid to long range texture LODs. If this happens, adjusting the LOD bias can help to remedy the issue. To learn how to do this, visit the Advanced Settings tab.

Continue with STEP Guide

At this point, you should be done with any editing needed for the STEP Guide. For user who are installing the Guide, please return there and finish setting it up before doing any advanced editing in Inspector. Your STEP setup should be 100% stable before moving on to the advanced section of this Guide.

Advanced Settings

There are many settings for Nvidia GPUs and more are being added with every generation of GPUs, so this section will explain many extra settings that may be of interest to users that want to further customize their experience.

Inspector Overclocking

First a disclaimer: Inspector and STEP can not be held liable for any possible mishaps resulting from overclocking your video card. Potential problems resulting from overclocking can include anything from voiding your warranty to overheating and bricking your card and everything in between. If you decide to overclock your video card, you do so at your own risk. This overclocking overview is meant for information purposes only. Now, on to the magic...

Overclocking in Inspector is not much different than overclocking in other third party software. Keep in mind, depending on your video card model, not all overclocking controls will be at your disposal in Inspector. Inspector was not written with overclocking in mind; therefore, if you need more powerful and precise options you should look elsewhere. It is also a good idea to have monitors open when overclocking so that you may monitor the effect of your changes.

Overclocking Pane

Inspector2.jpg


To open the overclocking pane, click the "Show Overclocking" button at the bottom of the main screen. You'll be prompted with a warning asking if you are aware of the risk with overclocking. Clicking "No" closes the windows. Clicking "Yes" will open the overclocking pane. Clicking the button again will hide the pane. Below is a break-down of the items on this pane:

Fan Control
The first thing you'll probably notice is a large vertical slider. This controls the Fan Speed. By default it is set to "Auto". To manually set the fan speed, uncheck "Auto" and move the slider to the desired position. Then click on "Set Fan" to lock it in. In the screenshot, the fan setting is grayed out because the shot was taken on a laptop with no fan control. Any areas you see in the pane which are grayed out is because you either don't have control of these items through the drivers or because Inspector can not control these items on your video card model.
Performance Level
This is a drop-down menu that allows you to select which performance level the NVIDIA drivers use. The performance level is normally changed dynamically by the drivers depending on the GPU load. The main levels are P0, P8, and P12; though yours may differ depending on model. P0 is for high loads such as video gaming, P8 is for loads similar to video acceleration, and P12 is an idle load; when the video card isn't really doing anything. If you have different values, remember that the lower values are higher performance requirements and the higher values are for lower performance requirements.
Unlock Min & Unlock Max
The frequencies available to you by default are locked in via the NVIDIA drivers. Clicking "Unlock Min" or "Unlock Max" will removed these driver limitation so that you may overclock to higher frequencies or underclock to lower frequencies. Clicking these buttons again will relock the frequencies to the driver limitations.
GPU Clock
The GPU clock normally stays grayed out and is provided for informational purposes. This clock can be changed but not individually with Inspector. It is changed by changing the Shader Clock and always remains half the frequency of the Shader Clock. For example, if your Shader Clock is set to 1600MHz then your GPU Clock will be set to 800MHz.
Memory Clock
Measured in megahertz, this changes the frequency of the VRAM. The buttons below the sliders allows for fine tuning of the frequency for both clocks.
Shader Clock
Also measured in megahertz, like the Memory Clock, this changes the frequency of the Shader Clock.
Voltage
Here it is possible to change the voltage to which the video card receives.
Create Clocks Shortcut
This is where Inspector shines! Clicking this button will save a shortcut on your desktop to specific clock settings. These means it's possible to have different overclocks for different game profiles or other tasks. Double clicking on one of these shortcuts will adjust your clocks to the preset settings automatically so you don't have to open Inspector and do it manually every time. So if you want a 10% overclock while you're video encoding, a 25% overclock while gaming, and default settings the rest of the time, all you'd have to do is make three Clock Shortcuts and double-click the appropriate shortcut anytime you change between tasks. Easy and brilliant! One of these preset can also be loaded at system start-up by simply placing the shortcut in your Startup folder in your Windows Start Menu.
Apply Defauts
This reverts any changes to the clock back to their driver defaults.
Apply Clocks & Voltage
This applies the clock and voltage settings immediately.

Editing Skyrim Settings

The default Skyrim profile can be adjusted or a custom profile, which has already been discussed, can be used to further tweak the game. Most of the settings and their functions will be listed here; however, do not be alarmed if your profile looks different from the images below. Various graphic cards will have various options available to them.

Info-Logo.png Notice: The following sections are specifically for Skyrim. They may be used as a reference to understand what the settings functions are; however, the recommendations given are specifically for Skyrim. They may or may not apply to other games.

Compatibility Header

Antialiasing Header

SkyrimAntialiasing.jpg

Antialiasing - Behavior Flags
This tells the driver how to use antialiasing. Keep the default setting which is for Skyrim: 0x00000005 (... Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, ...)
Antialiasing - Gamma correction
The default setting is Off and this can remain off for Skyrim. Gamma correction can improve colors in a game; however, this will have little to no effect in Skryim.
Antialiasing - Line gamma
This should remain as "default" for Skyrim.
Antialiasing - Mode
Mode should be set to "Application-controlled". Apparently, SkyrimPrefs.ini dictates the level of AA, but the video card drivers can dictate the method of AA, but this is not for all video cards (see Antialiasing - Setting in the next note). The default AA method in Skyrim is Multisampling (MSAA), so "Application-controlled" yields MSAA. If set to "Override", default MSAA will be turned off in Skyrim, regardless of the Skyrim INI setting!
Antialiasing - Setting
In general, this should also be set to "Application-controlled / Off" to ensure that AA is working. Some users have reporting that changing this from Mulitsampling will effectively turn off all AA within Skyrim. However, other have reported being able to set this to Sparse Grid Supersampling (SSAA) and having it still working in the game. If the video graphics card can override the default MSAA and, subsequently, is powerful enough to handle SSAA without a debilitating frame drop, then SSAA will ultimately yield superior quality and is recommended. You can only know if this works for you by testing it in Skyrim on your own system. If you are installing STEP for the first time, it is recommended to test SSAA after you have STEP installed and issue free!
Antialiasing - Transparency Multisampling
Use the default; "disabled". Enabling this has been known to cause textures which are not suppose to be transparent to display as transparent including walls, door, and characters. If you want transparency AA, use supersampling (below) as it's higher quality at about the same performance cost.
Antialiasing - Transparency Supersampling
Transparency antialiasing provides AA for transparent textures and will be most noticeable on foliage, trees, and water. 2x Supersampling is recommended as the minimum; however, adjust according to the performance/quality you desire. Higher values come at more of a performance cost. Sparse Grid Supersampling is often better in most games; however, in Skyrim it will cause issues with the transparent textures of fires so only use Supersampling.
NVIDIA Predefined FXAA Usage
FXAA should be set to disallow for STEP. FXAA is a fast AA method. Although it works, it also softens the textures and hazes the scene so you loose texture quality. So users like this effect; however, as it will add a bit of a "fantasy" effect to the overall game.
Toggle FXAA Indicator on or off
Leave as default; off. Setting to On will display an indicator.
Toggle FXAA on or off
Leave as default; off. If you want to use FXAA, it's recommended you use a FXAA injector. RCRN includes a very nice FXAA injector which is extremely light on performance.
Info-Logo.png Notice: Any ENBSeries version after v0.119 no longer has support for hardware AA. If you're planing on using an ENB which uses a version newer than v0.119, please turn AA off here in the drivers. The ENBSeries v0.139 and above now offers edge antialiasing which is similar to MSAA, but with a bit more blur. For a better AA solution with ENB, use SMAA Injector.

AA Performance Data

Multisample Antialiasing
From 0xMSAA to 2xMSAA: ~07% loss
From 0xMSAA to 4xMSAA: ~15% loss
From 0xMSAA to 8xMSAA: ~30% loss

Sparse Grid Supersampling
From 0xSGSS to 2xSGSS: ~01% loss
From 0xSGSS to 4xSGSS: ~02% loss
From 0xSGSS to 8xSGSS: ~06% loss

 

Texture Filtering Header

Texture Filtering

Anisotropic filtering mode
Anisotropic filtering is a texture filtering technique that improves clarity of textures when those textures are viewed at an angle such as when walking down a path or viewing water from the shore. It is recommended to force AF through the drivers. When doing this, turn off anisotropic filtering on the Skyrim launcher. The recommended setting to force anisotropic filtering is User-defined / Off.
Anisotropic filtering setting
The recommended setting is 16x; however, for a very slight performance gain a lower setting can be used. Higher values, like the recommended setting, may cause texture shimmering in mid to long range texture LODs. If this happens, adjusting the LOD bias (below) can help to remedy the issue.
No override of Anisotropic filtering
This will override the profile used for anisotropic filtering. Leave this set to default for Skyrim.
Texture filtering - Anisotropic filtering optimization
Filtering optimization should remain off for best texture quality.
Texture filtering - Anisotropic sampling optimization
Sampling optimization should remain off for best quality.
Texture filtering - Driver Controlled LOD Bias
This will turn the driver's control of the LOD Bias on or off. Leave it set to On for Skyrim. If you need to adjust the LOD Bias (below), this will need to be set to On.
Texture filtering - LOD Bias
Note there are two settings for LOD Bias. LOD Bias (DX), which is for DirectX games, and LOD Bias (OGL), which is for OpenGL games. Use the LOD Bias that is for whichever your game uses (DirectX is most common). For Skyrim, this is DirectX. LOD bias reduces the quality of textures as the distance grows from the viewpoint to those textures. Setting this to a lower value will increase distant texture detail but will also come at a performance cost. Lowering the value to increase distant texture detail could also cause glitches such as texture shimmering. If a high anisotropic filtering setting is causing texture shimming (Z-fighting), then raising this value will make the distant textures more blurry and help to reduce the shimmering. It's best to leave it set to default if possible; +0.0000.
Texture filtering - Negative LOD bias
If using anisotropic filtering, it is best to set this value to "Allow". The "Clamp" setting is no longer supported by NVIDIA even though it still appears in Inspector.
Texture filtering - Quality
Recommended minimum setting here is Quality. High Quality is best.
Texture filtering - Trilinear optimization
Trilinear optimization should be set to "Off" for best texture quality.

AF Performance Data

Anisotropic Filtering
From 0xAF to 2xAF: ~01%
From 0xAF to 4xAF: ~03%
From 0xAF to 8xAF: ~04%
From 0xAF to 16xAF: ~04.5%

Texture Filtering - Quality
High Performance to High Quality: ~01%

 

Common Header

Common

Ambient Occlusion setting
Ambient occlusion (AO) is a lighting technique that determines when certain pixels are blocked from the environmental light by nearby geometry, in which case, its brightness value is reduced. This provides richer, more realistic shadows in-game. However, AO is very performance heavy. The recommended minimum setting is Performance. If this is found to be too heavy on performance, try turning it off and opting for SSAO provided by ENBs might be a better solution. If both AO and SSAO are too heavy, the only solution left is to turn it off completely.
Ambient Occlusion usage
If Ambient Occlusion setting (above) is set to anything other than Off, then this setting should be set to "0x00000001 (... Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, ...)". If Ambient Occlusion setting is set to Off and you plan to use SSAO via an ENB, then this setting should be set to Enabled. If you don't plan to use Ambient Occlusion at all due to the performance loss, this setting should be set to Disabled.
Extension limit
Leave as default; Off. This only has to do with OpenGL games and can cause crashes.
Frame Rate Limiter
This is the driver side frame rate limiter. Capping the frame rate is useful for high-end cards only (cap at 2/3 the monitor refresh rate), since it is typical that the GPU frame rate will frequently move between above and below the monitor refresh rate, which causes choppy graphics. Limiting frame rate prevents this. ENBs also include a Frame Rate Limiter.
Info-Logo.png       Notice:Pay special attention to triple buffering and v-sync below if using FPS limits on high-end cards.
Info-Logo.png       Notice:Monitor refresh rates of 75 Hz may be fine without FPS limiting, but 60 Hz is a typical refresh rate.
Maximum pre-rendered frames
Maximum pre-rendered frames sets the number of frame the CPU can pre-render before the GPU takes over. Some claim that increasing this setting causes an input delay (in milliseconds) from the mouse and keyboard when set to higher values; however, this will be different for every user. Raising this value can actually improve performance if you experience no lag or stutter by doing so. The recommended setting is leave it as default; however, if you wish to experiment please feel free. No harm will come from doing so. If experimenting, use the highest value you can where you aren't experiencing lag or video stutter. If you do experience lag or stutter from raising this setting, simply decrease the value until it disappears again.
Multi-display/mixed-GPU acceleration
This is not relevant to SLI systems. If you only have one monitor, use the Single display performance mode. If you have multiple monitors, use the Multi display performance mode. If you have multiple monitors and experience some issues with the previous setting use the Compatibility performance mode.
Power management mode
This should be left on it's default; Adaptive, which ensures the graphics card changes its speed according to the load it's under. Per maximum performance should only be used for troubleshooting purposes!
Show PhysX Visual Indicator
Leave as default; Off. Setting this to On will show an indicator.
Thread optimization
Leave as default: Auto. This will allow the drivers to choose whether or not to use the multiple cores/hyper-threading of the CPU.
Triple buffering
Set this to on. Triple buffering improves performance among v-sync/frame rate and monitor refresh when v-sync is enabled and the GPU frame rate is less than the monitor refresh rate (when it is not, there is still no drawback). This setting does nothing when v-sync isn't enabled.
Info-Logo.png       Notice:Pay special attention to Frame rate limiter (above) and Vertical Sync (below) if using FPS limits on high-end cards.
Vertical Sync Smooth AFR behavior
This supposedly smooths out the stutter from movement and panning when vsync is turned on. This has not been tested well for Skyrim. Some users report smoother camera panning with this setting turned on. Recommended setting is to leave this set to Off until more testing is done.
Vertical Sync Tear Control
Leave on default; "Standard".
Vertical Sync
Users should leave this setting on Use the 3D application setting, unless playing an older game which does not have native vsync. In that case, users should use, Force On.
For Skyrim users: leave this set to Use the 3D application setting. If iPresentInterval has been set to 0, users should change it to 1 or simply delete the parameter from their INIs although, to force the default which is enabled. iPresentInterval should NOT be disabled in the Skyrim.ini file! If user is using ENB or ENBoost, then vsync should be enabled in the enblocal.ini file.
Info-Logo.png       Notice:Pay special attention to Frame rate limiter and Tripple buffering (above) if using FPS limits on high-end cards.

General

There's not much for troubleshooting currently. Troubleshooting will be added over time.

Transparent Textures

If you start seeing transparent textures in-game, this could be caused by Sparse Grid Supersampling or Transparency Multisampling. To fix this issue set Antialiasing - Transparency Multisampling to "Disabled". You can also switch Antialiasing - Transparency Supersampling to "Supersampling" instead of "Sparse Grid Supersampling".

SSAO Not Rendering

Some NVIDIA cards (like the GTX 560 Ti) ceased rendering SSAO outdoors in Skyrim after the official 1.5.24 patch. The problem hasn’t been resolved but NVIDIA is aware of it. For now, you can temporarily switch to Oblivion or Fallout 3 compatibility to get back the SSAO outdoors.

General

Below is the raw data from FRAPS for anyone interested. The system used during data collection:

  • Windows 8 Professional 64-bit
