The ASUS N Series notebooks represent the latest in mobile multimedia entertainment technology, combining optimised graphics performance and long-lasting battery life. NVIDIA® Optimus™ technology works intelligently in the background and monitors the programs being launched at any given moment. It then automatically selects between discrete and integrated graphics to deliver the best graphics performance and battery conservation respectively. Discrete graphics are used for applications such as games and multimedia applications, while integrated graphics are used for operations such as reading of emails and documents. The transition between discrete and integrated graphics is seamless and requires no user-intervention while delivering the best graphics quality and energy conservation at the same time. That means that users will no longer have to compromise on graphics and battery life and still enjoy the best of what the ASUS N Series has to offer: the pinnacle of multimedia enjoyment on-the-move.
