Zotac, a supplier of graphics cards that belongs to PC Partner holding, on Monday announced a special external hardware device that will simplify overclocking for both novices and performance enthusiasts.

Zotac Nitro hardware overclocking controller allows adjusting graphics processor core and shader domain clock-speeds, memory frequencies as well as fanning speed with the press of three buttons. Since the Nitro devices comes with screen, it is possible to monitor GPU temperature in real-time, something, which may be important in case of serious increase of clock-speeds.

Nitro from Zotac is claimed to be compatible only with the company’s graphics cards and should be connected to personal computers with a USB connector. Zotac did not unveil whether Nitro will be available bundled with the company’s graphics boards, or will be available separately.

“Owners of Zotac GeForce graphics cards crave all the graphics power available. Nitro allows our customers to extract every ounce of performance from their Zotac GeForce graphics card without the hassles of using unsupported third-party software. Overclocking has never been easier with the intuitive Nitro,” said Carsten Berger, marketing director at Zotac International.

Even though Zotac Nitro does provide a number of benefits for inexperienced overclockers, the popularity of the device is unclear. Several years ago Abit started to offer so-called uGuru panel with its mainboards that also allowed to overclock system in real-time. The panel has never become popular.

It remains to be seen whether Zotac will void warranties on graphics cards that were damaged due to excessive overclocking.
