Take care of your phone while you play
The MSI Gaming App is a companion software that lets you control different aspect of your MSI graphic card or laptop. These aspects include clock speed and CPU frequency. The app also has other useful and fun features.
Unlock the potential of your MSI graphic card
MSI Gaming App gives you full control over the performance of your graphic card.
OC Mode removes the limit of your GPU to give you a full gaming experience of many software titles. This includes achieving 4k resolutions of graphics of higher framerates. Take note that the graphic card and PC fans will be running on maximum with this setting.
Game Mode: this is the mid-settings of your GPU that allow for decent performance without taxing your computer too much. Game Mode is great when you want to slightly bring down the power consumption of your rig to conserve power, but still, want enough juice to play games at a decent output.
Silent Mode: as the name suggests, this is the lowest possible settings that lessen the burden on your computer and turning down the CPU fan a notch. Silent mode is great when you just want to browse the net or do some light activity in order to conserve power.
Other GPU settings and features
The gaming app helps you lessen stress on your eyes with its Eye Rest setting. This lets you remove the amount of blue light on the monitor that is harsh to the sight.
You can also find other display settings in the Eye Rest such as Gaming Mode, which provides a better contrast to help you see the environment better. This also has Move Mode that uses Dynamic Gamma adjustment for a better view.
The MSI Gaming App has the Dragon Eye feature, a mini window where you can watch Youtube videos or gaming streams from Twitch. In addition, the app lets you customize the LED display of your GPU. This includes color, styles, and much more.
Where can you run this program?
The MSI Gaming App is compatible with Android 4.0.3 or better. An Apple version is also available, which can run on devices with the iOS 9.1 OS or later.
Is there a better alternative?
The MSI Afterburner is a good alternative to the Gaming App when it comes to changing the output of your graphic card. Afterburner gives you more options on how to tweak your GPU such as the Core Voltage, Core Clock, and Memory Clock.
The MSI Gaming app provides a user-friendly experience when it comes to controlling your graphic card. Apart from GPU performance, you can also set the display and include a mini-window to watch videos while gaming.
