ASUS Launches ENGTX275 Series Graphics Cards with Fuse Protection Technology

ASUS, world-leading producer of top quality graphic solutions, has introduced the ASUS ENGTX275/HTDI/896MD3 that incorporates the latest generation of NVIDIA GPUs, the GeForce™ GTX 275.

In line with ASUS’ commitment to providing users with the best possible computing experience, the ENGTX275/HTDI/896MD3 comes equipped with 3 sets of Fuse Protection devices to guarantee doubled defense against over-current for risk-free computing. Additionally, with the inclusion of the EMI Shield, covered chokes, low RDS(on) MOSFETs, and solid capacitors, users will achieve extreme performance and peace of mind at the same time. Furthermore, to show that ASUS cares for all gamers, the ENGTX275 Series graphics cards will come bundled with a special coupon to obtain up to $25 or 10% off on a total of 5 games or CUDA™ applications at the NZONE webpage*.


Fuse Protection Enables Totally Risk-Free Computing

Traditionally, graphics cards are equipped with controllers for over-current protection. If these controllers malfunction, an over-current can seriously damage components on the card, resulting in a significant or even total loss of performance. The ASUS ENGTX275 Series is just the first of ASUS’ graphics cards to come equipped with a second over-current protection device—Fuse Protection, that eliminates any chance of an excessive or dangerous temperature rise in the conductors on the graphics card. With three sets of input fuses present on the circuit board of the ENGTX275/HTDI/896MD3, at least one of these sets will “break” to interrupt the flow of electrical current if the over-current protection controllers malfunction. With this double protection, users can enjoy risk-free and long-lasting computing—only with ASUS graphics cards.


Ultimate Armaments: The Finest Component Selections

Keeping in line with ASUS’ Rock Solid promise for quality, the ENGTX275 Series will come equipped with several solutions to help deliver top quality visual performances. With the EMI shield, 66% of EMI Interference is reduced for more stable signals; while Covered Chokes guarantee more power efficiency and less heat generation in comparison to traditional Toroidal Coil Chokes. Additionally, the low RDS(on) MOSFETs lower temperatures by up to 15°C in comparison to traditional thick versions; and last but not least, the use of solid capacitors reduces power loss for more stable operations and durability—even under long-term use. Therefore, users will be able to enjoy extreme performances and have peace of mind—only with the ASUS ENGTX275 Series.

Value-added Coupon Offer to All Gamers

To further provide users with added gaming value, the ASUS ENGTX275 Series graphics cards will now come with a limited edition coupon. This coupon will allow them to obtain up to $25 in value or 10% off on up to 5 games or CUDA™ applications at the NZONE webpage. With over 200 game titles like Fallout 3, Far Cry 2 and Call of Duty: World at War, users will be spoiled for choice for the hottest and latest games. The latest CUDA applications like Badaboom are also offered on the site for users interested in unlocking the true power of their graphic card’s GPU cores to help accelerate the most demanding graphical tasks.

Speak Visual with Graphics Plus

The ASUS ENGTX275 Series graphics cards are also outfitted with CUDA™ technology that not only provides world-class gaming experiences, but also offers the brand new Graphics Plus™ pack enhancements. Users can experience jaw-dropping PhysX™ gaming effects, Stereoscopic 3D, and lightning-fast video and image processing all accelerated by the GPU. Regardless of whether users are experiencing new worlds of realistic physical motion and massively destructible environments, strapping on their GeForce 3D Vision™ glasses to experience true Stereoscopic 3D gaming, transcoding HD videos to portable video players in minutes, or rapidly editing digital images using Adobe CS4, the ASUS ENGTX275 Series graphics cards is able to do it all.
