ASUSEN9600GT TOP ASUS, Albatron, Biostar, Gigabyte, Inno3D, MSI, Palit, Sparkle 9600GT Cards

In order to cater to users who require excellent graphical performance boosts
and exceptional cooling from their graphic cards, ASUS, producer of top quality
graphic solutions has today introduced the world’s first overclocking version of
the latest NVIDIA GeForce 9600GT GPU – the ASUS EN9600GT TOP graphics card.
Users will enjoy 10% engine clock improvements for gaming experiences with the
EN9600GT TOP/HTDI/512M; and both the ASUS EN9600GT TOP/HTDI/512M and EN9600GT/HTDI/512M
models will be soon upgraded with the newest thermal solution – the Glaciator
Fansink. Furthermore, the integrated SmartDoctor feature will provide users with
the option to overclock the Shader Clock for even better graphical performances.

10% Engine Clock Boosts

With the EN9600GT TOP, gamers can expect core, shader, and memory clock
performance boosts from 650MHz up to 720MHz, 1625MHz up to 1800MHz, and from
1.8GHz up to 2GHz respectively. This produces an astonishing 10% improvement in
terms of core performance when compared to any other reference designed board*.
Gamers can now experience the rush of superb gaming performances only with the
ASUS EN9600GT TOP/HTDI/512M.

Extreme Cooling with Exclusive Glaciator Fansink

The upcoming version of the ASUS EN9600GT Series will incorporate the Glaciator
Fansink – a specially designed fansink that is 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.

Official “HDMI Certified” Graphic Cards

The HDMI format is defined, specified and governed by HDMI Licensing, LLC in the
USA. Being "HDMI Certified" refers to any product that meets all of the strict
criteria as set out by HDMI Licensing; and utilizing any HDMI product that is
not approved may result in poor performance, and can even void the warranty on
users’ other HDMI enabled hardware. Therefore, the “HDMI Certified” ASUS
EN9600GT series are the most trusted graphics cards for home theater enthusiasts
to choose from.

Unprecedented Rock Solid Quality from ASUS

Keeping in line with ASUS’ Rock Solid promise for quality, the EN9600GT Series’
second version will come with several solutions to provide top quality graphic
performances. With the EMI shield, 66% EMI Interference can be reduced for more
stable signals. The DIP Spring Chokes can also lower temperatures by 5‾10oC in
comparison with traditional Toroidal Coil Chokes. Additionally, the LF PAK MOS
guarantees more efficient power and less heat. On top of all this, the Japan
made polymer capacitors can lower power loss for more stable operations.
Therefore, users will be able to enjoy extreme performance and have peace of
mind only with ASUS EN9600GT Series.

Overclock the Shader Clock with New SmartDoctor

ASUS garners a world’s first by providing an overclocking utility that is able
to tweak the Shader Clock on GPUs with the new SmartDoctor. With this handy
application, users will be able to overclock the Shader Clock and Engine Clock
independently for astonishing performance boosts without the hassles of
rebooting or re-flashing their BIOS**.
