MSI Twin Turbo puts old twist on GPU overclocking

The NX8600GT Twin Turbo carries not one but two vBIOS chips; this allows MSI to provide two sets of core and memory clock settings - normal and turbo - which can be switched between using a button on the back-plate of the card. It reminds us of PCs from the 386 and 486 era which also had a button on the case to adjust system speed "on the fly".At the end of the day while having two vBIOSes available could be useful as a safety net for the few who are brave enough to flash the BIOS on their graphics cards, having to manually press a switch all seems rather inelegant when the same could be achieved with a software solution.

Ive saved over my original files so both configs are named the same.

You can set up the LCD screen to rotate through all ur enabled configs (custom and default) and set the time it will show each one. Or u can do it manually with the little round button next to the LCD. You just need to set it up in the Logitech LCD Manager that you should have installed with the Drivers.

Just for a bit of input: On my G15, I don't use LCDStudio and have the following screens:
Everest Ultimate Screen : Core 1 temp, core 2 temp, gfx temp, mobo temp, ram and cpu usage.
FRAPS Display
Ventrilo Display
Media display for Winamp/Media Player

but nice work Timmy :)

Outstanding work.

The G15 controls and stuff can go goofy, often from u plugging it into another usb and windows gets confused. U plug it back and u`r in screwsville. Reinstall of the logitech thing sorts it out.

Have u been to the G15 forum thingy (which I can`t remember site of atm) - has some really sad looking crap on it tbh. But there`s a devs kit download too, which is semi interesting.

And if u got AMD, the info tool is pretty much a waste of time. Tells u what cpu u have plugged in... with the default clock speeds etc. Ignores any oc.

Oh and my lcd thing is burnt, it`s worth cycling displays.

I am experiencing the exact same issue with both download links in the original post. They download as

!TIMMY!'s_Logitech_G15_Custom_LCD_Studio_Config.ra and


respectively, and they are both 0 bytes!
