ASUS EPU among Frontrunner Technology Highlights at CeBIT 2008 Page: 1
Ever increasing demand for high performance components have been prevalent in the computing arena over the recent years. To cater to such expectations, ASUS, a leading company in the new digital era, has produced several innovative technologies to help users experience the best performing components for users; and will showcase these innovations at CeBIT 2008.
World-Leading Motherboard Technologies
ASUS’ extensive R&D has produced several state-of-the-art motherboard innovations that are key in providing users with energy savings and convenience. These include the World’s First hardware-based on-demand power saving IC controller – the ASUS EPU, and Express Gate technologies.
ASUS Exclusive EPU Saves Up to 80.23%CPU Power
The ASUS-developed EPU is the world’s first hardware-based
on-demand power saving IC controller. This automatic energy
saving chip utilizes an innovative power technology to digitally
monitor and automatically fine-tune the CPU power supply under
any loading. Real-time automatic detection of the CPU current
provides total control for the best possible power efficiency; and
saves up to 80.23% CPU power when the PC is running low
intensity programs. Coupled with the innovative AI Gear3 –
which features a new user interface that shows users exactly
how much electricity and CO2 is being saved, the ASUS EPU can
provide users with up to 50% enhanced power efficiency.
Motherboards with the new EPU will include the P5K/ EPU and
P5K SE/EPU, the new RAMPAGE FORMULA and P5E3 PREMIUM/
motherboards, amongst many others. Express Gate: Instant Internet Access without Entering Windows
Besides performance, ASUS also places importance on “user friendly” features. With only 5 seconds boot-up time, the ASUS Express Gate allows users to instantly surf the Internet without entering Windows or the Hard Disk. Users will be able to enjoy Skype, IM, YouTube, webmail and Internet file downloads and share data whenever and wherever they want! This exclusive application is currently available on various motherboards, which include the new ASUS M3N. ASUS Sets New Standards for Graphics Card Cooling
ASUS showcases radical approaches to lowering graphics card
temperatures with exclusive cooling technologies like the
Glaciator Fansink and the V-Cool heatsink.
Exclusive Glaciator Fansink for Exceptional Cooling
The new Glaciator Fansink brings about a new level of quiet and
efficient heat dissipation for graphics cards by being able to
effectively dissipate heat away from the GPU to help lower
temperatures – much like real-life glacial storms. Besides this
extreme cooling capacity, it is also ultra quiet with operating
levels of only 25dB – almost imperceptible in a quiet room; and
caters to users who require maximum cooling without excessive fan rotation noise. Models which incorporate this innovative fansink include the EN9600GT Series, the EAH3870X2 Series, and the EN8800GS Series, to name a few.
Extreme Cooling with V-Cool Heatsink
The V-Cool Heatsink is an ASUS innovation that provides a stylish outlook as well as powerful cooling performances. Incorporating the V-Engine concept of ideally arranged V-fins, even heat dissipation with a minimum of space is achieved. The high-density zipper array fin module also aids heat dissipation by utilizing the Intercooler technology to maximize the surface area exposed to the air. Additionally, the heat pipe arrangement enables the average temperature on the heatsink to enhance heat transfer effects. Last but not least, the special aluminum alloy material is much lighter and makes for good thermal conductivity to help heat dissipation. This amazing innovation is currently available on the ASUS EAH3650 SILENT Series.
Leading Optical Disc Drive Technologies
ASUS has developed the exclusive QuieTrack technology to cater to demands for more stable and quiet optical disc drive operations.
QuieTrack – Quiet and Stable Operations
The ASUS exclusive QuieTrack technology is developed to dampen drive noise in every conceivable fashion while improving stability, and consists of two revolutionary features: Airflow Field Modification (AFFM) and Auto Vibration Reducing System (AVRS). These two technologies help minimize noise and vibration to achieve quieter, more stable operations. QuieTrack is available on the ASUS DVD-E818A2/A2T and DRW-2014 L1T DVD optical drives.
ASUS Achievements for 2007
ASUS saw the year 2007 filled with accolades from across the globe with 2568 awards. It was also ranked in Business Week‘s “InfoTech 100” for the 10th straight year; and named the “Number One in Quality and Services” by the Wall Street Journal Asia.
