Default ASUS develops manual GPU overclcoking tool

I don't think it will be very long before simplified (and functional) overclocking tools for both GPU and CPU are mainstream, and everyone who's willing to spend a little more on a decent motherboard will be doing it. Good or bad? It depends on your perspective, but the overclocking world is becoming less exclusive all the time.

Asustek Computer, one of the world’s largest producers of computer components, on Tuesday unveiled what it calls “the world’s first hardware based real-time overclocking device for graphics cards” along with its new Nvidia GeForce 8600 GT-based graphics board. The tool may be useful for not very experienced overclockers.

Asustek’s OC Gear real-time overclocking device should be installed into a spare 5.25” bay and connected to an USB port. Specially developed software will allow end-users to adjust system master volume, graphics processing unit’s (GPU’s) clock-speed, GPU fan speed using a simple knob as well as monitor GPU temperature and current frames per second (FPS) information.

Ah well the days of overclocking being a "skill" are almost over.

Still kinda a cool item
