ASUS, leading provider of high-performance and innovative graphics solutions, today launched the world’s first stand-alone color processor with a modularized graphics card – the ASUS Splendid MA3850M; which combines a video enhance card with the ASUS Splendid HD processor and a modularized VGA card. The ASUS Splendid HD processor increases image quality to deliver sharper, more vividly colored visual outputs without increasing CPU loadings; while automatically selecting the best possible display modes for exceptional quality visuals. On par with generic ATI Radeon™ HD 3850 VGA cards in terms of 3DMark performance, the Splendid MA3850M is able to reduce power consumption for more energy savings. Additionally, the overall length of the Splendid MA3850M is 27% shorter than generic ATI Radeon™ HD 3850 graphics cards – allowing a perfect fit even for smaller-chassis users.
Enhanced Image Quality without Increasing CPU Load
The ASUS Splendid HD processor utilizes the newest generation of Splendid video intelligence technology. This provides vibrant and fine-tuned images in conditions most favorable to the human eye, without any increase in CPU loading. Watching movies on PC monitors can now be as good as watching them on top-of-the-line consumer televisions, all thanks to the 7-region color enhancement, 12-bit gamma correction, real-time 2D peaking and dynamic contrast engine of this powerful chip. In addition, it automatically selects the best possible display modes for the most exceptional quality visuals – with inclusions of a Photo Mode, Video Mode, and Game Mode. Furthermore, it allows users to adjust image sharpness and optimization according to the display panel.
Lower Power Consumption for Energy Savings
The ASUS Splendid MA3850M also comes with the ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 3850 GPU that supports the ATI PowerPlay™ technology. It also provides breakthrough energy efficiency in terms of performance-per-Watt while retaining outstanding 3DMark06 scores* – making it the best green product for gaming enthusiasts.
Unique Hardware Design
With a length that is 27% shorter than generic ATI Radeon™ HD 3850 graphics cards, the Splendid MA3850M will still fit perfectly for smaller-chassis users**. It is also designed on a stylish black circuit board, and the fansink and bracket exude a feeling of ‘gamer-chic’ – making the Splendid MA3850M an attractive and physically appealing product for users to enjoy 3D Gaming and home theater at the same time. Last but not the least, the modularized design concept makes the graphics card able to be easily upgraded in the future.
