"...allows to increas the frequency of the chipset graphic core..."
Ummm, seems to me this applies to a board like my GA-G33M-DS2R, which has onboard graphics. I'm not using it, and you probably aren't either if you play games, so making that setting change either won't do anything or it will add heat.
Used to set it to Turbo to OC my 7600GT on 945P-DS3. It ran fine for a year before I upgraded to 8800GT and P35-DS3. Everest showed core and memory oc'd by 10% and 5% respectively. I read somewhere R.G.B is safely tweaked by Gigabyte engineers, so it's free to try.
hmm, binh when u set it to turbo did it show the oc on a programme like gpu-z, like was the core clock or memory clock higher... because on mine they are at default and when i run a game they seem mto stay at default (i havnt really found a good way to test), but my fps has increased in games
I've also got a Gigabyte board with R.G.B. and it dose exactly what you've described, it OC's the mem and core frequency on the graphics card. In my case this doesn't result in much of a FPS boost, but then again I'm running a 7900GS so that's probably why. Hopefully with two 8800GT's that I'm getting next week I'll see some better results, but than again I probably wont need a boost then (;
And to answer an earlier question I do see the mem and core frequency increase in my monitoring programs.
but the thing is programmes arnt showing a overclock, can u actually see your overclock? like in a programme or do they say default settings but ur getting better performance? this is really confusing me xD
Tomas Lee, who is Marketing Manager for Gigabyte USA, explained that both of those features are actually overclocking options. He stated:
The Robust Graphics Booster will allow the chipset and GPU to synchronize together in maximizing the GPU Clock speed in order to enhance the graphics performance, kind of like NVIDIA LinkBoost Technology.
