The EAX1950PRO series, based on ATI's Radeon X1950PRO GPU, incorporates a
new fan sink design that provides effective heat dissipation while serving
aesthetic purposes as well. With unique embedded heat pipes not found in
computing solutions, and a blower fan that guides cool air towards the
fins, the EAX1950PRO Series lowers temperature by 10°C compared to
competing graphics cards with no improvements from reference designs.
The new EAX1950PRO series supports ATI's CrossFire Technology, which
allows multiple GPUs to operate simultaneously for enhanced video
performance. Superior graphics quality is achievable with the EAX1950PRO
CrossFire/HTDP/256M and EAX1950PRO/HTDP/256M installed in the same system
in CrossFire mode.
To stay in step with Windows Vista requirements, the EAX1950PRO series
features HDCP technology to give users peace of mind when upgrading their
systems to support high-definition digital contents and a wide range of
premium graphics applications.
The new EAX1950PRO series supports Splendid Video Intelligence Technology,
an exclusive feature found only on ASUS solutions. With Splendid, images
enabled by ASUS graphics cards are fine tuned to deliver vibrant visual
representations in conditions most favorable to the human eye.
Splendid detects activation and usage of video applications and
automatically optimizes image quality and further provides five modes
(Standard, Game, Theater, Scenery and Night) and three skin tone options
for various video applications. Splendid works on top of ATI's Avivo
technology to offer sharp decoded video.
