It is highly optimized for overclocking and tweaking on both a PCB design and software level. One interesting feature is the use of 2 GB of GDDR5 memory which is twice as much as on the "normal" HD 5870. Whether this can help make a difference will be something we are going to look at. Compared to the reference design, ASUS has bumped the clock speeds only slightly."
