ASUS launched 'The Republic of Gamers ARES' graphics card.
With the integration of dual ATI Radeon 5870 GPUs in
combination with 4 GB of high performance GDDR5 the ARES is
upwards of 30% faster than reference 5970 solutions,
according to Asus.
Utilizing a custom PCB, high quality electrical components,
copper heatsinks, metal fan shroud, high flow fan assembly
and a specially designed dissipative back plate the ARES
produces temperatures eclipsing the performance of the
reference 5970 while offering considerably more performance.
For gamers and enthusiasts looking to push ARES to its full
performance potential, ASUS is offering the Voltage Tweak
option. In combination with the fan controls offered in the
Smart Doctor graphics utility users can push their cards to
ASUS EAH5870, 5850 and EAH5830 Series Featuring Copper
and Direct Heatpipe Designs
ASUS is launching the new EAH5000 Series range of graphics
cards with new thermal and PCB designs. The ASUS EAH5870V2
is offering a custom designed copper heatsink and fins to
allow for 17% cooler performance than reference solutions.
The ASUS EAH5850 and EAH5830 graphics cards include DirectCU
technology, which feature two 8mm specially-flattened copper
heat pipes that contact the GPU directly. This allows the
cards to dissipate heat up to 20% more effectively during
gameplay and enable up to 35% quieter operation in idle mode
than reference solutions.
The ASUS EAH5870V2 Stalker Edition and EAH5850 DirectCU TOP
graphics cards feature default GPU speeds of 868MHz and
765MHz, and memory clock speeds of 4800MHz and 4600MHz,
respectively. The EAH5850 DirectCU TOP features an overclock
potential of the GPU core clock speed to reach 800MHz or
highe. Additionally, ASUS? Voltage Tweak technology provides
users with the option of boosting GPU voltages.
The ASUS EAH5000 series is also equipped with the GPU Guard,
which doubles the structural integrity of the graphics card
to prevent PCB cracks from occurring.
