ASUS is showcasing several new and innovative products at Computex Taipei, including a tri-core graphics card.
The first product ASUS is showcasing is the new “Concept Car” graphics card, the EAH3850 Trinity graphics card. It features three ATI RV670PRO GPUs onboard for up to a 139% improvement in performance compared to a single GPU solution. The card features four DVI-out connectors and an MXM graphics card slot for future upgrades. The card has a specially designed water cooling solution. Onboard graphics memory is 1.5GB (512MB x3).
A second new design is the “Hybrid-Class Car” styled Matrix graphics cards. The ASUS EN9600GT Matrix has a combination of fan and heatsink solutions in one card; the fan is automatically controlled according to the graphics card load, translating into power savings for the end user.
The “Workhose Jeeps” of graphics cards feature Glaciator fansinks that quickly remove heat from the graphics card. The card only has a noise level of 25dB, meaning it is almost silent.
The above card has a Racing Car inspired design. Its V-Engine concept designed heatsink fins provide even heat dissipation in the least amount of space. The Intercooler-inspired high-density zipper array fin module maximizes the surface area exposed to the air for the best possible heat dissipation. The card features three heatpipes. The card is cooled by the heatsink alone, meaning it is silent.
ASUS showcased a number of other products besides graphics cards. The Axe Square CPU Cooler has advanced cooling performance for overclocked processors up to 180W. It features an ROG badge and has low noise levels.
The ASUS PSU G-1000HA power supply delivers 1000W of environmentally friendly power. It has a 13.5 cm ball-bearing fan and auto thermal acoustics noise control, making for a quieter operation. It has five dedicated +12V rails and is 80 PLUS certified with up to 87% efficiency.
The ASUS ARES Gaming PC features an Intel Core 2 Extreme processor, up to 8GB of DDR3 memory, up to 4TB of hard drive space, and support for Nvidia Quad SLI/ATI CrossFireX technology. It features liquid cooling and draws upon ancient and modern armor concepts from Eastern and Western cultures for a unique design.
