Unprecedented 1 GB Onboard Memory for Ultimate Graphics


Memory size plays an important portion in the delivery of graphical performance, as even a powerful GPU can suffer from bottlenecks due to slow or insufficient video memory. The more memory installed on a video card, the more data it can store-eliminating the need to access PC RAM to provide faster graphical performances. With most current and upcoming games requiring increasingly high video memory requirements, the ASUS ENGTS250 DK/HTDI/1GD3, with its unprecedented 1GB of built-in memory, is able to deliver greatly enhanced performances, and allow users to fully enjoy games or movies without lag or stuttering even at very high resolutions and maximum quality settings.


Ultimate Armaments: The Finest Component Selections


Keeping in line with ASUS' Rock Solid promise for quality, the ENGTS250 Series will come equipped with several solutions that will help deliver top quality visual performances. With the EMI shield, 66% EMI Interference can be 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) MOSFET lowers temperatures by up to 15°C in comparison with the traditional thick versions; and last but not least, the use of solid capacitors lower power loss for more stable operations and durability-even under long-term use. Therefore, users will be able to enjoy extreme performance and have peace of mind-only with the ASUS ENGTS250 Series.
