ASUS HD 4890 Voltage Tweak Graphics Card

 

Introduction

 

The Voltage Tweak model from ASUS is something we've heard about for a while now. The idea behind it is that ASUS gives the user even more control of the card when it comes to overclocking. Not only do you have the ability to overclock the standard clocks like memory and core, but you also have the ability to adjust the voltage.

 

You may be wondering what this exactly means; it gives you the ability to adjust the voltage to higher levels which in turn gives you the ability to run the card at even higher speeds, much like you do with a CPU where adding more voltage gives you the ability to obtain higher clock speeds.

 

While this may sound a bit scary to some people, we're sure that ASUS hasn't given you too much control that you could essentially damage your card. It ultimately would be a stupid decision for ASUS to give you the ability to adjust the voltages which is something quite new to most users, while at the same time letting you give it crazy amounts that will damage the card.

 

We'll quickly have a look at the package to see exactly what ASUS has got going on before we have a closer look at the card itself. We'll then move onto the overclocking and how things went when it came to adjusting the voltage of the card along with the clock rates.
