Asus unveiled its new Formula series graphics cards in India. The two Formula Series graphics cards are based on ATI Radeon HD 4770 and HD 4890 cards. The cards are designed as per aerodynamic design of the Formula One car.
Inspired by Formula One racing cars, Formula Series graphics cards have an aerodynamic design that leverages Asusâ€™ proprietary micro surface technology and a special dust-proof fan to improve thermal efficiency by up to 33 percent-keeping the card cool during graphically intensive tasks. These cards are also claimed to be up to 12.4 decibels quieter than cards that use generically designed fan-sinks. This means a 30% reduction in noise levels which is good for those who want cooling without excessive fan rotation noise.
