Asus has added a new member to its family of Fermi DirectX 11 graphics cards. Based on the recently launched NVIDIA GeForce GT430 graphics processor, the
ENGT430/DI/1GD3 (LP) is a low-profile card ideal for home theater buffs and casual gamers.
Its powerplant, the NVIDIA GT430, features 96 CUDA cores, a 700MHz core clockspeed, 1GB of DDR3 clocked at 900MHz, a 128-bit memory bus, 4 ROPs, and 585 million transistors. The presence of NVIDIA’s Pure Video engine means that it can even accelerate Blu-ray 3D media.
According to Asus, the card is exceptionally durable owing to “highest quality components, including ASUS Dust-Proof fan, GPU Guard, and Fuse Protection,” with the fan alone adding 25% extra to its lifespan. It is available now for $79.99.
