ASUS OCgear Preview

ASUS will soon release a video card with its own breakout box for performance users, an early preview shows. The OCgear will take its cue from the notebook-only XG Station and include a 5.25-inch drive bay control panel that will plug into a GeForce 8600 GT video card inside a desktop. Both a dial controller and an LCD will let users rapidly change the settings of the card without first turning to software, including overclocking the actual graphics chip, increasing fan speed, and monitoring the video hardware's temperature.

The breakout display will also help watch software, checking the current frames per second in games and adjusting system volume, though ASUS hasn't yet explained whether all features will be available without using custom ASUS chipsets, mainboards, or software.

A demonstration of the OCgear is set for the Taiwan-based Computex expo next week, which should reveal full details. North American releases of the device are likely. [via TweakTown]
