HyperDrive – Boost GPU power when you need the most
HyperDrive provides 3 ways to dynamically boost graphics card power.
- 3D Mode: When HyperDrive detects there are 3D programs running, it automatically speeds up VPU clock to provide the best 3D effects.
- CPU Mode: Smart overclocking that provides more power when the system needs it the most. HyperDrive raises VPU running speed to share computing resource when CPU loading is high.
- Temperature Mode: Heat reduces the life of computer components. HyperDrive overclocks depending on system temperature to strike a balance between performance and hardware protection.
