Computer parts manufacturer Asus claims to have scored a world first with the launch of its latest graphics card.
The Asus EAH3850 Trinity has no fewer than three separate graphics processing unit (GPU) cores on the video card.
By using the three cores together, Asus says a 139 per cent improvement in top speeds may be achieved when compared with a single-GPU card.
An impressive 1.5 GB of on-board memory is fitted to ensure the processors have the available to capacity to run at their optimum levels.
Meanwhile, two DVI outputs help to ensure the high-quality graphics achieved are passed on to display equipment.
Asus suggests that the video card could prove ideal either for high-resolution multimedia playback or for running games which require DirectX 10.
The company recently announced the launch of its EPU range of motherboards for eco-friendly systems.
