Asus announced the first 1GB onboard memory version of the latest ATI Radeon HD 4850 GPU with the ASUS EAH4850/HTDI/1G.
The large onboard memory size is designed for feature-rich DirectX 10 gaming, and multimedia playback at ultra-high resolutions and maximum quality settings. Additionally, the ASUS EAH4870 TOP and EAH4850 TOP will be released soon.
Every ASUS EAH4800 Series graphics card will also soon be equipped with the Glaciator Fansink, a uniquely designed cooling solution that will keep GPU temperatures up to 7C cooler than reference designed boards. On top of all this, the ASUS EAH4870/G/HTDI/512M will also come bundled with the latest survival video game ? Alone in the Dark.
The more memory installed on a video card, the more data it can store ? thus eliminating the need to access PC RAM and providing faster graphical performance. With most current and upcoming games requiring increasingly high video memory requirements, the ASUS EAH4850/HTDI/1G promises enhanced performances, and allow users to fully enjoy games or movies without lag or stuttering even at very high resolutions and maximum quality settings.
