ZOTAC NITRO - Graphics Card Overclocking Made Easy

Introduction

Overclocking a graphics card isn't really a hard task. With programs like Rivatuner you can find yourself overclocking your core and memory within minutes of setting up your graphics card.

For this reason, it does make us wonder why ZOTAC would take the time and effort to release a device that lets you do it without having to use software. Really, there was only one way to find out; get one and take it for a spin to see exactly what we have going on here.

What we'll do is have a look at the package and then take a closer look at how the device works. Once we've done that we will overclock our GTX 280 to see what we can achieve and run it through some benchmarks.

So, with that all said and done let's get stuck into the package before firing it up and seeing if there are any specialties here.
