ASUS, the world’s leading producer of top quality, cutting
edge graphics solutions, today launched the new ASUS EAH5870/2DIS/1GD5 and
EAH5850/2DIS/1GD5. The first in the world to utilize Voltage Tweak technology,
these graphics cards enable users to boost GPU voltages via the SmartDoctor
application to enjoy up to a 38% improvement in performance. Both graphics cards
support Microsoft DirectX 11® and Windows® 7 to provide users with the most
intense gaming experience.
The latest 40nm process and GDDR5 memory
technologies are also utilized to deliver faster processing times and general
system performance. Users can even run up to three displays from a single
graphics card, thanks to the native DisplayPort and Eyefinity technology. The
ASUS EAH5800 Series comes specially bundled with DiRT 2™—by far the most
anticipated DirectX 11® game—pushing the boundaries of immersive gaming with
true-to-life visual realism and effects.
The ASUS EAH5870/2DIS/1GD5 and EAH5850/2DIS/1GD5 are equipped with Voltage
Tweak technology, as part of the SmartDoctor application. It enables users to
raise GPU voltages from 1.15V to 1.35V and from 1.088V to 1.4V respectively,
boosting GPU and memory clock performance from 850 / 725 MHz to 1035 / 1050 MHz
and from 4800 / 4000 MHz to 5200 / 5200 MHz respectively. Such extreme
performance upgrades raise the EAH5870 and EAH5850’s 3DMark Vantage Extreme
Preset score from 8,087 to 9,252 and from 6501 to 8987—an unbelievable 17% and
38% improvement compared to other reference designed boards*.
overclockers can also benefit from ASUS SmartDoctor, the world’s first
overclocking utility that allows the tweaking of GPU voltages on the EAH5800
Series graphics cards. ASUS SmartDoctor enables users to boost both voltages and
overall performance with just a few clicks—without the hassle of flashing the
BIOS or running the risk of damaging the graphics card.
With the ASUS EAH5800 Series graphics cards’ support for DirectX 11®, it is
now possible for users to enjoy new levels of visual realism while playing games
and watching videos on the PC. Innovations such as HDR Texture Compression,
DirectCompute and Tessellation are engineered to take advantage of all the
graphical features within the new Windows® 7 operating system.
more, the ASUS EAH5800 Series is available in a special bundle, featuring the
best in off-road racing—Colin McRae: DiRT™ 2. Colin McRae: DiRT™ 2 is one of the
most anticipated racing games of the year. It takes full advantage of DirectX
11®, adding realism to the racing environment. Hardware tessellation improves
the appearance of water and other surfaces, as well as crowd animations.
Utilizing the EGO Engine, DiRT™ 2 sets the world of virtual rallying alight, a
definite must-have for high adrenaline off-road racing on the PC.
The ASUS EAH5800 Series graphics cards boast 40nm process technology to
provide better system performance while using less power, thanks to highly
efficient transistors. With advanced GDDR5 memory technology—enabling up to
twice the bandwidth per pin as compared to GDDR3 memory—users can now experience
the speed, responsiveness and performance of ultra-high bandwidth for
processor-intensive multitasking and gaming.
Extend the View across Three Displays with Eyefinity Technology and Native
The ASUS EAH5800 Series graphics cards feature Eyefinity
technology and native DisplayPort, allowing users to expand the field of view
across up to three displays**. This allows for more detail than ever before with
innovative "wrap around" capabilities that deliver an incredibly intense gaming
experience, enhancing the feeling of being in the game.
