With emphasis on providing quiet computing environments to users, ASUS has today introduced the ASUS EN9600GT SILENT/HTDI/512M graphics card. This ingenious piece of hardware incorporates the latest thermal solution – the V-Cool Heatsink, which features the V-Engine concept and Intercooler technology. This exclusive innovation guarantees absolutely quiet operations, and an efficient means of heat dissipation for the most stable performances. The unique design of the V-Cool Heatsink will lower GPU temperatures by 10ºC in comparison to reference designed boards with 0dB noise generation; while the integrated SmartDoctor feature provides users with the option to overclock the Shader Clock for even better graphical performances.



10oC Cooler with Exclusive V-Cool Heatsink
The V-Cool Heatsink’s super racing car engine design stands as a testament to the unique and high-precision craftsmanship from ASUS; and combines a stylish outlook with powerful cooling performance. Phasing in the V-Engine concept, the ideally arranged V-fins dissipate heat evenly with a minimum of space required; while the high-density zipper array fin module utilizes the Intercooler technology to maximize the surface area exposed to the air to help heat dissipation. Additionally, three powerful heatpipes are arranged to enable the average temperature on the heatsink to enhance heat transfer effects, and the special material aluminum alloy used is lighter and provides excellent thermal conductivity. With such specialized features, the V-Cool Heatsink can quickly transfer heat away from the GPU and lower temperatures by a whopping 10ºC in comparison to reference design boards with 0dB noise generated.

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.

Unprecedented Rock Solid Quality from ASUS
Keeping in line with ASUS’ Rock Solid promise for quality, the EN9600GT SILENT/HTDI/512M comes with several solutions to provide top quality graphic performances. With the EMI shield, 66% EMI Interference can be reduced for more stable signals; while the DIP Spring Chokes can lower temperatures by 5~10oC in comparison with traditional Toroidal Coil Chokes. Additionally, the LF PAK MOS guarantees more efficient power with less heat generation. 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 retain their peace of mind with the ASUS EN9600GT SILENT/HTDI/512M.

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 SILENT/HTDI/512M is a trusted graphics card for home theater enthusiasts to choose from.
