As mild mannered in performance as you can get in its Normal mode whose results are hardly indistinguishable from your typical Radeon , the RGuru becomes almost another card when you enable Turbo mode by switching the position of a jumper on the board. To be fair, the features are quite comparable to similar programs from other manufacturers but it is still rather disappointing considering ABIT’s track record for producing enthusiast friendly products. This made for some spectacular improvements in performance, as our results will reveal later. The rest of the software are the controls for the hardware temperature monitoring tool, though the handful of settings that can be changed by the end-users are restricted to defining temperature warning limits for the built-in failsafes which are: What we have in our labs today is yet another excellent example of ABIT’s goal to make overclocking even more accessible to everyone. What’s so new about a Radeon card at this point of time you ask? Large Standard Small ].
