insane kwam een linkje brengen naar Maximum3D waar een kleine review te vinden is van de Elsa Erazor X GeForce kaart. Hieronder wat info over ChipGuard, SmartRefresh en SmartResolution, 3 utils die bij de Erazor gebundeld worden.
Three Elsa-only utilities which they tout are ChipGuard, SmartRefresh, and SmartResolution. ChipGuard is basically a small icon placed in your taskbar. The icon is not clickable to anything....it just sits there. It is a monitor to measure the temperature of the GPU, through monitoring of the temperature and fan RPM. It is normally green. It changes color when the chip starts to overheat and notifies the user. If the safety margins are grossly surpassed, the utility will actually restore all settings to default and reboot. This a good idea, but not something I would trust my whole video card to. Chances are you will begin to experience video problems before this thing reacts, but I'm not going to go trying it....I don't feel like frying my Erazor X today. One thing I thought really sucked is that Elsa did not include this utility with any updated drivers on the internet. Only the shipping drivers have it, which means I had it once, then when I updated the drivers, I didn't. Very annoying.
SmartRefresh and SmartResolution are kinda neat little gimmicks. Basically, using these, you are able to adjust either your refresh rate or your resolution in very small increments. You can change the refresh rate incrementally and adjust the resolution in 32 pixel increments.
