ASUS Introduces EAX1800XT TOP/2DHTV/512M and EAX1600PRO/TD/512M Graphics Cards

ASUS introduced the EAX1800XT TOP/2DHTV/512M and EAX1600PRO/TD/512M graphics cards based on ATI's Radeon X1800XT and Radeon X1600 GPUs, respectively. The two new graphics cards naturally support Shader Model 3.0, High Dynamic Rendering, and also support for high-resolution LCD up to 2560x1600.

The bundle of EAX1800XT TOP/2DHTV/512MB includes Peter Jackson's King Kong game and XitePad gamepad. This flagship card also leverages the innovative Arctic Cooling technology and comes with an 80W external power supply kit that enables easy upgrade to dedicated power input to maximize its overclockability.

Of course, there are familiar proprietary technologies as well, including ASUS GameReplay, GameLiveShow, GameFace Messenger, and Splendid Video Intelligence Technology. Other features include the improved Video Security Online that provides various security-monitoring features. Aside from basic recording functions, users can also specify a particular surveillance area for motion detection. When unauthorized visitors are detected in the defined area, the feature raises an alarm, records a video or takes snapshots and saves it on the hard drive. Video Security further streams real-time video to a web browser, enabling monitoring from a remote location. A warning message system to preprogrammed recipients via email, handset text message or Skype is available as well.

Finally, there's OnScreen Display, a game display controller enables to adjust brightness, contrast and gamma value without leaving the game or changing monitor hardware settings. Simply activate OSD using predefined hot keys and tune image quality during games.
