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.

The EN8600 GT OC Gear graphics card from Asus is equipped with 256MB of high-speed 1ns GDDR3 memory as well as high-performance cooling system, thus, can provide sufficient overclocking potential for those seeking additional performance.

The Asus OC Gear device itself is also compatible with various graphics cards by Asustek Computer, the company said, however, it did not reveal whether the software needed for Asus OC Gear will support other than EN8600 GT graphics boards.

It was not touched upon how much additional money end-users have to pay for the OC Gear device compared to typical Asus EN8600 GT graphics card without it.
