This made for some spectacular improvements in performance, as our results will reveal later. True r99550 its history, ABIT has always had a deserved reputation for targeting the enthusiasts with its pro-overclocking products.
In fact, that is just what our test system thought too after we switched the jumper. Despite the turbo capability of the ABIT RGuru, it still begs to be overclocked further, what with its decent cooling module and aluminum heatsinks for the memory parts.
As mild mannered in performance as you can get in its Normal mode whose results are hardly indistinguishable from your typical Radeonthe RGuru becomes r9505 another card when you enable Turbo mode by switching the position of a jumper on the board. The reality is not as dire as we have depicted and depending on your point of view, it could be either way.
The bundled software and accessories are the bare minimum t9550 one expects from a graphics card package these days, a DVD playback application and ABIT’s own overclocking program. There are no actual overclocking related modifications like voltage settings, hence it is not as useful as we would have liked.
This is the company that made jumperless motherboards famous and offered highly tweakable BIOS through its Softmenu. Would the more elitist enthusiasts move on to other challenges now that their obsessions are no longer accorded cult status?

Heatsinks for the memory chips are quite a necessary feature for overclocked, enthusiast cards. To be fair, the t9550 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 is an interesting tactic indeed and a carefully taken r9550 since the Radeon and graphics processors are derived from the same VPU model.

Before we continue further, let us take a look at the card and the technical mumbo-jumbo specs. What’s so new about a Radeon card at this point of time you ask? There is no voltage overclocking in case you’re looking forward to that. While we may not have the definitive answer, our observations indicates that the urge to overclock is still flowing strongly in the veins of the hardcore enthusiasts, albeit they’ve moved on to more advanced cooling gear.
What we have in our labs today is yet another excellent example of ABIT’s goal to make overclocking even more accessible to everyone. However, looking at the situation in the opposite light, one could perceive this as the worst of times. Evidently, the jumper position was not the only change; a different BIOS has been loaded.

The overclocking section is a simple affair consisting of sliders to adjust the core and memory frequencies of the card.
