ABIT intros video card overclock tool

ABIT today launched its first ATI-based graphics cards to incorporate overclocking software derived from the code its ships with its overclockable motherboards. The RX600 Pro-Guru, X600 Pro-HDTV and RX300 SE-Guru boards both ship with vGuru, the video version of ABIT's µGuru overclocking utility. vGuru allows users to modify memory and core clock speeds and voltages, and adjust fan speeds. It also provides diagnostic tools to help fine-tune performance.

Overclocking each card can yield a performance boost of up to 25 per cent, ABIT claimed. The code taps into each boards twin BIOS chips, one operational, the other for back-up in case the BIOS code becomes corrupted. Selecting one BIOS or the other is just a matter of rearranging a hardware jumper.
