Default Asus Voltage Tweaks Radeon HD 5870 To A 38% Performance Boost

Small quote from the article,

Asus has today launched what is being called the world's first EAH5800 series graphics card with "voltage tweak technology" that promises up to a 38% boost in performance. The new 1GB EAH5870 and 1GB EAH5850 are the planet's first two cards to utilize this new tech, which essentially gives power users the ability to boost GPU voltages via the SmartDoctor application to enjoy up to a 38% improvement in performance.

Home enthusiasts have been doing this for years..... All they have done is wrapped it up into a shiny gui package to make it more accessible for the average user.
