the link in the Video leads to NADA not a damn thing. all good sayin it works when your the only one able to use it personally i'd like to play with it myself and make up my own mind thanks

And all of this mumbo jumbo is necessary because...???

I guess getting a few extra 3D Marks is valued by a lot of people in this world...

Notice in the background of Video 1 you can see the PC he's using is using unactivated Windows :P

Intel has already used the "Overdrive" name (trademarked), why can't AMD come up with something else?
Intel's Overdrive as related to overclocking too... so ehm, COME UP WITH YOUR OWN NAMES.

ATi, now owned by AMD, has had "Overdrive" functionality for a long time in their graphics drivers - now it's simply being expanded to cover processors. I don't know the details of trademarks but I wouldn't have thought AMD would be using it if they thought there would be a problem.

As a member of the "enthusiast and overclocking community," this guy shouldn't be taking all the fun out of the process. This just makes it too easy to be worth having anything to brag about or validate, this application is like viagra for e-penises

Yes, because overclocking was always a difficult and challenging thing to do. If you were mentally retarded at any rate.
