ASUS Readies New Line of Graphics Cards
Today ASUS is all over the place, promoting all kinds of products. Now is the time for the Formula video cards line-up, inspired by Formula 1 race cars. ASUS is already showcasing a few products from the line-up at CeBIT 2009 (where else if not there). The part that brings the cards' name is actually the heatsink. From above it resembles the shape of a F1 car. Despite that, the heatsink is nothing so revolutionary. It is combination of anti-oxidizing aluminum fins, five copper heat-pipes and a dust-proof fan. The whole cooling occupies two PCI slots. ASUS forgot to mention if the cards will be supercharged, sorry I mean overclocked. Pricing and availability information is also missing, neither we know if the cards will be with NVIDIA or ATI GPUs.

I agree with the horde; just a ridiculous and ugly scheme. If you're going to model it after a car, don't make it look like a recycling bin.

Oh god... that is ugly (shudders). Are there people out there that like this gimmicky stuff? I for one find beauty in functionality and performance when it comes to computer stuff.

I'd take an SSC over an F1 as well:



(supposedly fastest production car in the world)
