    Wowzers, so if you bought an ASUS graphics card then chances are there you've been using ASUS GPU Tweak II to enable that software OC operandus mode, or just use it for tweaking. Well, at Reddit a ...

    'You need to disable it with a hotkey combination'

    Afterburner all the way I think I've tried every oc software out there and nothing comes close to afterburner imo.

    Since I learned that it's basically all the same, I'm also sticking to AB. This is really disgusting... I'd only expect such a behaviour from malware.

    Even better, don't use any 3rd party OC software or game overlays. ;)

    I hope that's not an Educational Video, as this game should have been tagged as "Fantasy Genre".

    Yes, those videos are for people who seemingly have not been able or old enough these days to have played a Battlefield game, or a shooter at all.

    Is it just certain games? I upgraded to the latest a few weeks ago and have not seen any ads.

    Once i have installed Asus Suite and Asus GPU Tweak on a computer... i should have done anything exept that.
    It is heavier, work bad, and is source of bug and on top of that is hard to uninstall completely.

    With this new thing you know what you should avoid to use with Asus things (the hardware is great hopefully).

    Well.... never guying an ASUS product again. What is worse is how much data all these companies steal from us everyday with out us knowing. They make profits off our own ideas then sell them back to us.

    That feature was always there. I saw it years ago when I had a 560ti and if I remember correctly it only showed ads for asus products but could easily have been disabled and isn't even enabled by default. Why is this only a problem now?

    Just purchased an Asus RTX 2060 OC card a week ago. I have not seen any ads in any game or other program like what is described above.

    I don't think this is real. I have been using it for many years and in fact, I post about it here when I notice new versions in case anyone else would like to update too. I haven't been gaming like a madman, and I don't have it blocked in any type of firewall - and I haven't noticed anything of this sort. Grains of salt abound! Rock on all.

    At least they could inject useful adds like russian babes want you or super top models are desperate to meet you and so on...
