ASUS SmartDoctor
Shader Clock overclocking and intelligent hardware protection tool

ASUS SmartDoctor is a group of special tools to help users make the most of their ASUS graphics cards. It monitors the Fan RPM, AGP Power Level, GPU and RAM temperature, and has a slide bar for easy manual overclocking. Furthermore, the embedded HyperDrive and SmartCooling technology can dynamically overclock and change the fan speed for better performance and convenience. With its comprehensive hardware monitoring functions it provides you with the best graphics card investment protection and best performance when overclocking.

AGP Power Level Monitoring 
  AGP Power Level Monitoring can detect the power level from the AGP bus to the graphics card to ensure the stability of your valuable system
Temperature level monitoring
  With temperature monitoring, you can detect the temperature level for important component including GPU and memory on the graphics card to ensure the safety of your valuable system
Fan RPM Monitoring
  Fan RPM Monitoring offers this extra safety feature to ensure you that the fan on the graphics chip is functioning well
Shader Clock Overclocking
  Shader Clock and Engline Clock can be tweaked independently to boost astonishing performance

Note: The shader clock overclocking function can apply to all ASUS EN8x Series graphics cards.

Advanced Functions:

ASUS SmartCooling
Dynamic fan speed controller for a quiet work environment

SmartCooling is an ASUSexclusive technology that effectively reduces the fan noise under normal use, and dissipates the heat when the GPU loading is high. SmartCooling only works on specially designed ASUS graphics cards with monitor chip that can detect and adjust the board temperature and fan speed.

When activated, SmartCooling allows you to set five(5) GPU temperature thresholds and the fan speed dynamically changes according to this temperature threshold. When the the GPU temperature is below the lowest threshold, SmartCooling automatically reduces the fan speed to the lowest fan speed level to reduce noise and save energy. Moreover, when the GPU temperature passes over the threshold, SmartCooling automatically increases the fan speed for better heat dissipation.

ASUS HyperDrive
Maximize the 3D graphics power of your card with three ASUS-exclusive dynamic overclocking features

The original SmartDoctor allows you to manually adjust both core and memory clocks to boost your graphics card performance. Now ASUS features the new HyperDrive technology, that allows you to easily and dynamically change the speed of the GPU and memory to gain more power from your graphics card. HyperDrive is the first in the industry to provide three modes of overclocking:

  3D Game Mode:
Recommended for game enthusiasts. In 3D Game mode, HyperDrive detects whether there are 3D applications running on the system and automatically increases the GPU core clock to provide smoother motions and better performance.

  CPU Usage Mode:
This mode adjusts the GPU speed according to the working load of the CPU. If HyperDrive finds the CPU loading high, it automatically increases the GPU speed to share the load, hence providing better system performance.

  Temperature Mode:
In this mode, HyperDrive monitors and adjusts the working speed of the GPU according to the GPU temperature. To cool down the system, HyperDrive decreases the GPU speed if the temperature gets too high
