Asus launches new graphics card
Dubai, November 5, 2013
Asus today announced the launch of R9 290, a new graphics card powered by the latest AMD Radeon R9 290 graphics-processing unit (GPU).
The new card benefits from exclusive Asus GPU Tweak, an easy-to-use tuning tool for instant performance boosts, 4GB of super-fast GDDR5 memory for the best gaming experience at the highest resolutions and incorporates AMD Eyefinity and TrueAudio technologies to enable expansive multi-display setups and bring in-game audio to life with more accurate environmental sounds, the company said.
R9 290 also includes support for both DirectX 11.2 and AMD’s new Mantle application programming interface (API) for great handling of even the most-demanding PC games.
The new Asus R9 290 has a unique advantage in the shape of GPU Tweak, an exclusive Asus tool that helps users to squeeze every last drop of performance out of the Radeon R9 290 GPU. This includes the ability to control finely GPU and video-memory clock speeds and voltages, cooling-fan speeds and power-consumption thresholds — so overclocking is both made easy and can be carried out with high confidence, it said.
As well, the GPU Tweak Streaming tool lets users share on-screen action over the internet in real time — so others can watch live as games are played. It’s even possible to add a title to the streaming window along with scrolling text, pictures and webcam images. - TradeArabia News Service
