ASUS Launches World's First Graphics Cards with Super ML Caps
Constantly seeking to improve and bring new ideas to the table Asus have introduced the first graphics card to make use of Multilayer Polymer Capacitors. These caps can be found in the new non reference ENGTX285 and EAH4890.
Asus promise the Super ML caps will yield better overclocking results up to 3.3 times and stay around 15C cooler compared to reference designs of the GTX285. The Voltage tweaker seen in their previously released 4890 is also featured in the new EAH4890, which paired with the new caps will allow up to 3 times better overclocking margins. A decrease in GPU temperature is also expected to be around 10C.
For most manufacturers this would have been enough, but Asus decided to include EMI shielding, covered chokes, low RDS(on) MOSFETs, and solid capacitors, which in turn will contribute to the cards stability and overclocking potential.
