ATI and NVIDIA are both working on an external graphic solution for notebooks and ASUS has already shown working samples at CeBIT 2007. The company has taken the idea a step further and will be introducing an internal version dubbed "OCGear". It comes in combination with a GeForce 8600GT, which can be overclocked by turning the dial of the 5.25 inch unit. No word on how it interfaces with the graphic card or the rest of the PC.

Pretty cool. For the lazy ocer, just turn a knob. I like this idea and think its very neat. However, it doesnt allow for fine tuning, which to me, is a drawback.

That's pretty cool :D

Turn the knob down in internet/work mode and crank it up in gaming mode! Sounds like a good idea, although I think there should will be a max/min that you can set yourself.

Yeah its cool but has drawbacks. Its a lazy person's oc. Dialing up a graphics card, Im sure the max is an established setting on that 8600GT. Id like to see that for the 8800 series and the HD2900 series as well.

This is pretty neat.

I would imagine that the software that is used with this would detemine the highest and lowest clocks that the card can handle.
Then based on that would set the tuner.

This is a good idea and will hopefully let noobie OCs learn somethings.
Plus it would look pretty kewl in a case :)

I don't know about everybody else but this would be an awesome feature for a desktop as well, IMO.

i think its usefull for when your not playing games to lower it, but i bet it will only work on a 8600 witch means more hassle when you net a card and unless its going to work will all nvidia cards then it might be worth it just to be lazy!

i better idea would be for the cpu to have one so when you just downloading at nite for example you dont need to restart and lower your clocks in order to set you be to say 50percent! like cool and quiet but you tell it when that would be a trick

Most enthusiast mobos nowadays come with multiple bios saves - for example, my bios has a stock (stable, undervolted) and an OC'd setting saved in two profiles. If i get a crash that may be OC related, i load the stock one to make sure.

It should be quite easy for a mobo manuf to allow a hardware button connected to the mobo (reset switch :p ) to swap between some basic profiles - the catch being, can the OS handle multiplier/drastic FSB changes on the fly. (Ram timings and voltages would be hard, i beleive)
