Seven of NVIDIA's Latest and Greatest Cards Tested

Tools And Software

The software bundle consists of the software DVD player Power DVD 6 and the game Xpand Rally.

The most important tool, aside from the graphics driver of course, is Gigabyte's VTuner 2, which allows the user to monitor and change the card's clock speeds. A right-click on the taskbar icon opens up a context menu with more information and additional utilities:

  • VGA BIOS Writer lets you save and easily update the graphics card's BIOS.
  • Color Adjust lets you fine-tune brightness, contrast and gamma level.
  • Execute Update checks for new versions of the utilities on Gigabyte's servers. Sadly, it lacks a status window - you just get a little message window if your utilities are up to date.
  • Finally, VGA Info is rather useless, as even the NVIDIA driver offers more information.
