Asus to Support GeForce GTX 480 Voltage Tweaks?

Yeah, yeah, it's another one of these Nvidia GeForce GTX 480 and GTX 470 box shot stories. Unfortunately, we're not allowed to show you much else until the curtain officially lifts this Friday evening, so all we have to stare at are pretty boxes that the new video cards will be coming in.

Asus fans will be pleased to know that their favorite Taiwanese computer maker will be offering both the GeForce GTX 480 and GTX 470; and if the box art is of any indication, Asus' product will pack a special (supported?) feature that will allow the user to tweak the voltage to "shift into overdrive" to make things "50% faster."

    So the thought was to take one of the most power-hungry single GPU cards, and ramp it up a few more notches?

    50%? that's quite a tweak.

    They just copied the Dark Knight from their Radeon 4870 1G series. It was an awesome box, I displayed it on top of my case for a month or so.

    After all of this hype, I'm going to be so underwhelmed with performance, I know it.

    Hehe! I see what you did there :D

    Yeah, as of now, I really can care less about Fermi. If it lowers prices for me, woo hoo. If not, I don't care.

    I have a 5770 now, I'm getting another one when prices go down to $155 or I'll get one in December. Whichever comes first. Together, they will perform better than a single 5870 by a fair margin.
