New SmartDoctor Allows Stream Processor OC Page: 1
Official Press Release

ASUS SmartDoctor

ASUS recently introduced a new version of their SmartDoctor GPU overclocking software, featuring a world's first option of overclocking a card's stream processors separately from the GPU clock.

Before, a GeForce 8-Series graphics card's stream processors' clock correlated to that of the GPU. However, this was limited to a 2:1 ratio. ASUS's new SmartDoctor allows users to overclock their card's stream processors separately from the GPU, and thus bypassing this limitation. Now, with just a few clicks of the mouse, users can see up to a 25%* graphical performance increase.

This new version of SmartDoctor will be packaged with all GeForce 8-Series graphics cards and is also downloadable from ASUS support site.
