“How Can Eyefinity Change Your Life?” - Contest Presented by ASUS, Hot Hardware, and AMD!
To celebrate all the new possibilities that ATI Eyefinity technology introduces, ASUS and AMD are trying to find out more about how Eyefinity can change your life!
We’ll be giving away an awesome ASUS Matrix 5870 graphics card and three 23” inch LCD monitors as the top prize, and many more prizes (including weekly random draws for entrants). This is a contest you don’t want to miss out on, and all you have to do is submit a creative story, picture or video explaining how Eyefinity can change your life, and what you would do with Eyefinity if you had it right now.
To the delight of all gamers, ASUS graphics cards provide incredible gaming experiences by offering Dirt 2 and exclusive S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Call of Pripyat game bundles that bring out the best in DirectX11 and Eyefinity. Additionally, EAH5000 Series graphics cards deploy Voltage Tweak technology for complete overclocking and overvolting authority. This enables users to raise GPU voltages for up to 50% performance boosts over reference design—extremely smooth moves in games and in heavy computing tasks guaranteed!
Performance tuning demands suitable cooling to handle the extra pressure and heat. ASUS thermal innovation on EAH5870 and EAH5850 is certainly no exception.
For Matrix 5870, the ASUS-built board features a custom extra large dust-proof fan guaranteeing greater longevity, through 22% more air pressure and pure copper fins exceeding reference cooling requirements by 13%. As for the EAH5850 DirectCU TOP, two specially-designed 8mm flattened copper heat pipes contact the GPU directly for up to 20%* better heat dissipation during gameplay as well as 35%* quieter performance than any other reference design board.
There is no doubt this setup will be the envy of all your friends, and with ASUS powering it, you know it’ll be a ultimate gaming machine.
