Asus launches world’s first hardware based real-time overclocking device for graphics cards


Asus has introduced the world’s first hardware based real-time overclocking device for graphics cards – the ROG (Republic of Gamers) OC GEAR, this time bundled with NVIDIA graphics cards in the form of the Asus ROG EN9600GT OC GEAR/HTDI/512M. This new version of the OC GEAR will allow users to overclock the shader clock, memory clock, and GPU clock for greater graphical enhancements, and will provide users with up to 20% enhanced overclocking performance and gaming experiences.

The Asus ROG EN9600GT OC GEAR/HTDI/512M utilizes the uniquely designed Glaciator Fansink that effectively transfers heat away from the GPU for cooler operations – much like real-life glacial storms. Besides this extreme cooling capacity, it is also ultra quiet with operating levels of only 25dB – almost imperceptible .
Taipei, Taiwan, June 11, 2008 – Following the huge success of the EN8600GT OC GEAR and EAH3850 OC GEAR, ASUS, producer of exceptional graphical solutions, has once again introduced the world’s first hardware based real-time overclocking device for graphics cards – the ROG (Republic of Gamers) OC GEAR, this time bundled with NVIDIA graphics cards in the form of the ASUS ROG EN9600GT OC GEAR/HTDI/512M. This new version of the OC GEAR will allow users to overclock the shader clock, memory clock, and GPU clock for greater graphical enhancements, and will provide users with up to 20% enhanced overclocking performance and gaming experiences. This powerful graphics card also utilizes the latest thermal solution – the Glaciator Fansink; that utilizes a unique fansink design to keep GPU temperatures cool.
Up to 20% Graphical Enhancements with Effortless Shader Clock Overclocking
Originally, the GPU clock and shader clock speeds were closely related, but with the ASUS ROG EN9600GT OC GEAR, users will be able to tweak the GPU clock, shader clock, and memory clock independently – allowing extreme performance upgrades as the shader clock actually influences the graphics cards performance much more than the GPU clock. Therefore, the ROG EN9600GT OC GEAR can attain a 3DMark Vantage Extreme Mode score of 1661 – an astonishing 20% improvement over generic graphic card scores of 1389.
Convenient, Risk-Free Overclocking with User-friendly Interface
The most impressive feature of the ROG OC GEAR is the ease in which it allows real-time overclock and customize users’ settings. This takes care of time-consuming and complicated steps of before, where flashing the BIOS and risking damage to cards were commonplace. With an easy-to-read mirror LED display, the ROG OC GEAR displays real-time graphics card information that includes the GPU temperature and current FPS (Frames Per Second). In addition, the user-friendly knob allows timely adjustments for the user to switch menu options that include volume, GPU clock, shader clock, memory clock, and fan speeds to suit different game requirements. The ROG OC GEAR is the perfect tool to conveniently overclock, control system settings, and keep an eye on temperatures from the front of the chassis.
Ease in Installation
Installing the ROG OC GEAR is also hassle-free – even for first-time PC DIYers. Users simply need to install the ROG OC GEAR into 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!
Extreme Cooling with Exclusive Glaciator Fansink
The ASUS ROG EN9600GT OC GEAR/HTDI/512M utilizes the uniquely designed Glaciator Fansink that effectively transfers heat away from the GPU for cooler operations – much like real-life glacial storms. Besides this extreme cooling capacity, it is also ultra quiet with operating levels of only 25dB – almost imperceptible in a quiet room; and caters to users who require maximum cooling without excessive fan rotation noise.
Unprecedented Rock Solid Quality from ASUS
Keeping in line with ASUS’ Rock Solid promise for quality, the ROG EN9600GT OC GEAR comes with several solutions to provide top quality graphic performances. With the EMI shield, 66% EMI Interference can be reduced for more stable signals. The DIP Spring Chokes can also lower temperatures by 5~10ºC in comparison with traditional Toroidal Coil Chokes. Additionally, the LF PAK MOS guarantees more efficient power and less heat. On top of all this, the Japan made polymer capacitors can lower power loss for more stable operations. Therefore, users will be able to enjoy extreme performance and have peace of mind only with ASUS ROG EN9600GT OC GEAR.
