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.

Sigh another stupid car inspired marketing gimmick from Asus. I'll take an SSC or FTW over a Formula or Ferrari anyday.

Very Very stupid..... Ugly and the stupid ugly plastic is covering the fan which can only lower its performance and add noise. Their dark knight coolers are better then this IMO.

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)
