ASUS World's First Real-time
Overclocking Device with EN8600GT OC GEAR/HTDP/256M
ASUS today introduced the new OC gear as the world's first hardware based
real-time overclocking device for graphics cards. The ASUS OC gear will be
bundled with the ASUS EN8600GT OC GEAR/HTDP/256M which is upgraded with -1
memory modules. With such a configuration, users can expect up to 30% enhanced
overclocking performance and gaming experiences. Full support for Microsoft
DirectX 10 will also allow users to experience stunning and complex special
effects for their applications and games.
In order to provide gamers with the best overclocking experience, the
EN8600GT OC GEAR edition is equipped with -1 memory modules. The high speed
capability of these super fast memory modules allow the best overclocking
capabilities for memory speeds. Such a speed upgrade will help boost 3DMark06
scores from 4185 to 5493 - an astonishing 30% improvement*.
With an easy-to-read mirror LED display, the OC
gear displays real-time graphic card information including the GPU temperature
and the current FPS (Frames Per Second). In addition, the user-friendly knob
allows timely adjustments by simply pressing it to switch menu options including
volume, GPU clock, and fan speed to suit different game requirements. The OC
gear also allows gamers to conveniently overclock, control system settings, and
keep an eye on temperatures from the front of the chassis.
Installing the OC gear is not at all difficult - even
for first-time PC DIYers. Simply install the OC gear to the chassis through an
internal 4-pin USB connector to convey power and information to the motherboard,
and that's all that's required - it's that simple.

build-up. Additionally, with 25% more surface area, the heatsink provides better
cooling and is able to lower temperatures by up to 14°C when compared to
reference design graphic cards**.
The new ASUS EN8600GT OC GEAR also incorporates
exclusive ASUS innovations including Splendid, Gamer OSD, VideoSecurity Online,
