ASUS launched a new co-op campaign with NVIDIA, which features a promotion in association with Blizzard Entertainment to include a 14-day trial for Blizzard's popular game World of Warcraft, along with a collectible door hanger, with select ENGT200 Series graphics cards.
These ASUS limited edition graphics cards are up the ante with NVIDIA 3D Vision, making great use of GeForce GPUs. Using special glasses and 120Hz LCD displays or compatible HDTVs, NVIDIA 3D Vision tantalizes gamers with realistic graphics, stereoscopic images, and depth of field.
ASUS?s GamerOSD lets gamers overclock the GPU while gaming through an onscreen interface, allowing them to boost performance when they need it most. The application also displays frames-per-second status so gamers can keep track of performance gains and test different settings under actual conditions. GamerOSD also lets players capture screenshots and video so they can share their gaming moments.
Five models -- the ENGTS250 DK/DI/1GD3/W, ENGTS250/DI/1GD3/WW, ENGTS250 DK/DI/512MD3/WW, ENGTS250/DI/512MD3/WW, and ENGT240/DI/1GD5/WW -- are bundled with a World of Warcraft 14-day trial offer and collectible door hanger, featuring artwork from the game.
ASUS ENGT240 Series graphics feature double-sealed fans that are virtually impervious to dust and thus capable of the better cooling intense gaming calls for. Most importantly, these fans last up to 10,000 hours, according to Asus.
As graphics cards increase in size and weight to accommodate these features, they also suffer increased stress that can result in bent or snapped boards. ASUS counters this with the GPU Guard, an exclusive technology originally utilized in military-grade applications. GPU Guard effectively doubles reinforcement to prevent cracks caused by strain and improves shockproofing in the event a gaming rig takes a fall during transportation.
Conventional graphics cards come with overcurrent protection controllers. However, if these fail, overcurrents can seriously damage components and possibly result in significant or total loss of performance. ASUS ENGT240 Series graphics cards eliminate excessive temperature rises in conductors with multiple sets of on-board input fuses. When an overcurrent occurs, one or more of these sets interrupts the electrical current to stop disaster in its tracks. ASUS ENGT240 Series graphics cards also come with an EMI shield, cutting EMI emissions given off and received by up to 66%. This shielding has been put through stringent testing to ensure better signal stability and clearer images.
