Zotac Introduces Firestorm GeForce Overclocking Utility

By - Source: TechPowerUp | B 11 comments

ZOTAC has released a new FireStorm overclocking utility.

ZOTAC has released its FireStorm overclocking utility that, despite being specifically designed for the company's line-up of GeForce graphics cards can in fact be used on almost all GeForce card. The tool is similar to Asus' Tweak OC utility and MSI's Afterburner and includes features such as GPU temperature monitoring, fan speed adjustment, voltage adjustment and Nvidia GPU Boost control. If you've got a GeForce GTX Titan, Firestorm will allow you to overclock your LCD display and force it to display a higher refresh rate.

Following the tool's release, Carsten Berger (ZOTAC's Senior Director) stated that "we wanted to create an overclocking utility that novices and enthusiasts can use to tweak and tune their ZOTAC GeForce series graphics cards. ZOTAC FireStorm is the result and enables users to adjust the GPU and memory clock speeds, voltage and fan speeds. Enthusiasts with the latest ZOTAC GeForce GTX TITAN graphics card can take advantage of display overclocking too."

The utility is available for download here.

    They would be better off getting their engineers to develop a UEFI BIOS instead of wasting time on OC software

    Lol, I bought a Zotac GTS 450 and it came with the Firestorm software too... but the difference is I guess is you somehow over clock your display to view more FPS... If I read correctly, but it only works for the Titan.

    The part about overclocking your panels is completely true. Only fgs wouldn't know that you can overclock some display panels to run at higher refresh rates than intended. Many people do this with their cheap korean IPS displays.

    "despite being specifically designed for the company's line-up of GeForce graphics cards can in fact be used on almost all GeForce card."
    Well, it doesn't work on my Gigabyte 8800GT. It just freezes for a while and then I get the prompt to force close it. Maybe my card is too old...
    However, MSI Afterburner does work.

    OC hz screen may be good for actual 3d output but makes no diff to standard vid games that run awesome at 60fps.
