Faster Than Ever: ASUS P7P55D-E Series and ASUS P7H57D-V Series EVO Motherboards
Experience extremely fast data transfers with the ASUS P7P55D-E and ASUS P7H57D-V EVO motherboards. Equipped with an onboard Unique PCIe X4 Bridge Chip, both motherboards support next-generation USB 3.0 and SATA 6Gb/s speeds. Thus, heavy media users can transfer data 10 times faster from USB 3.0 devices and save files up to two times quicker on the latest SATA hard drives. Such rapid performance means a large 20GB HD movie file now takes only 70 seconds to save and a 4MB song can be transferred in 0.01 seconds. The P7H57D-V EVO also features exclusive GPU Boost Technology to give users faster high-definition frame rates for enhanced HD gaming action.
Performance Shines Through: ASUS Bravo Series Graphics Cards
Enjoy comfortable viewing with the automatic brightness control from the ASUS Bravo Series graphics card. Integrated with Splendid Plus technology and an exclusive light sensor, it detects the ambient room lighting and moderates the screen output-ensuring optimal visual comfort while delivering impeccable shades, hues, and tones. Four default modes-Theatre, Gaming, Picture, and Auto-provide easily-selectable settings for the discerning user to choose from. An improved power design also delivers remarkable energy efficiency, reducing power consumption by 28% in 2D mode for enhanced energy savings and lower heat output-hence preventing heat-induced mechanical faults.
Bravo Media Centre comes bundled to let users conveniently view their movies, music videos, and photo collections via an intuitive interface and remote control. The Bravo Series also comes with a trial version of MediaShow Espresso, a NVIDIA® CUDA based video conversion engine that accelerates video transcoding for iPhone, PSP, Xbox, YouTube and other formats.
Seamless Entertainment without Borders: ASUS O!Play Air HDP-R3
Sit back and enjoy watching multimedia files on a big-screen TV instead of a smaller PC monitor. The ASUS O!Play Air HDP-R3 HD media player enables users to wirelessly access all their digital content from various sources including media PCs and NAS devices wirelessly. The High Definition playback has comprehensive format support, including MPEG1/2/4, H.264, VC-1 and RMVB. Built-in slots also enable access to digital files and photos stored in CompactFlash (CF) and Secure Digital (SD/MMC) cards or Memory Sticks (MS/MS Duo). In addition, a dedicated music shuffle button on the O!Play Air HDP-R3 lets users access and play the music files on all storage devices connected to the media player.
Compact yet Powerful Surround Sound: ASUS Cine5 Soundbar Speaker
Be overwhelmed by sensational multichannel audio from the world's first true surround soundbar for PCs. The ASUS Cine5 Soundbar speaker reproduces dynamic and full multichannel surround sound for that exciting First Player Shooter game or breathtaking movie experience. The Cine5 Soundbar is capable of re-expanding down-mixed 5.1 channel audio from stereo sources such as small PCs, notebooks, media players or even iPods and delivering full surround sound. Designed by the same team that created the Xonar HDAVI1.3 Deluxe audio card-which won the 2009 CES innovation award-the Cine5 Soundbar promises groundbreaking audio performance that is truly out-of-this-world.
A Stunning Display of Performance: ASUS Designo MS Series Monitor
The new ASUS Designo MS Series additions include the MS238H, MS228H and MS208N.

Featuring ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio (ASCR) Technology, the Designo MS Series LED monitor delivers a contrast ratio of 10,000,000:1 for ultra-sharp and vivid visual presentations. Users will be further astounded by its Full 1080 HD image resolution, 2ms (Gray-To-Gray) quick response time and color optimisation by ASUS Splendid Video Intelligence Technology.
