F1 inspired Radeon cards rev onto the market

Asus has launched its Formula Series of graphics cards. Two cards are available currently -- the Radeon 4770 (EAH4770 FORMULA/DI/512MD5) and Radeon 4890 (EAH4890 FORMULA/HTDI/1GD5). Asus says their Formula Series cards are inspired by Formula One racing cars. For those who want design exclusivity and the gaming enthusiast, the heatsink and cooling-fan are even aerodynamically styled to look like an F1 racing car.

The fan on these cards is claimed to be dust-proof, and better than those on reference-designed cards, thus improving the efficiency of the cooling by up to 33%, which translates into slightly better performance when the card is stressed by 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.

Asus offers a warranty of three years on these cards. The Radeon 4770 (EAH4770 FORMULA/DI/512MD5) will cost US$155, while the Radeon 4890 (EAH4890 FORMULA/HTDI/1GD5) will cost US$377.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
