NVIDIA announced the GTX 275 GPU yesterday. Asus unveiled a new interesting GTX 275 based card with the Asus ENGTX275.
Asus has today introduced the Asus ENGTX275/HTDI/896MD3 that incorporates the latest generation of NVIDIA GPUs, the GeForce GTX 275. The Asus ENGTX275 comes equipped with 3 sets of Fuse Protection devices to guarantee doubled defense against over-current for risk-free computing.
Additionally, with the inclusion of the EMI Shield, covered chokes, low RDS(on) MOSFETs, and solid capacitors, you will achieve extreme performance and peace of mind at the same time.
Traditionally, graphics cards are equipped with controllers for over-current protection. If these controllers malfunction, an over-current can seriously damage components on the card, resulting in a significant or even total loss of performance. The ASUS ENGTX275 Series is just the first of Asus' graphics cards to come equipped with a second over-current protection device—Fuse Protection, that eliminates any chance of an excessive or dangerous temperature rise in the conductors on the graphics card. With three sets of input fuses present on the circuit board of the ENGTX275/HTDI/896MD3, at least one of these sets will "break" to interrupt the flow of electrical current if the over-current protection controllers malfunction. With this double protection, users can enjoy risk-free and long-lasting computing—only with Asus graphics cards.
ASUS bundles with the ENGTX275 Series graphics cards a special coupon to obtain up to $25 or 10% off on a total of 5 games or CUDA applications at the NZONE webpage.
