Creative Labs Annihilator Pro Review

Blaster Control


The Blaster Control applet has just about every conceivable option that the casual and power user could ask for. With the exception of allowing the core clock speed to be changed, I believe all the options that are available in NVIDIA's NVTweak utility are present in the Blaster Control and then some. Having used NVIDIA's reference drivers in the past, I will say that Creative did a great job providing this handy set of utilities for the Annihilator Pro.

I've received questions from readers asking if the Blaster Control utilities allow monitor refresh rates to be set. If you take a look at the second screenshot below, you will notice that the refresh rate is being reported. In order to change the refresh rate, I had to use the standard Windows Display Properties (settings, advanced, adapter).

If you want more control over refresh rates, including ones that Windows doesn't let you use, I recommend you try HZ Tool which is freeware.
