New ASUS PCIe Splendid HD1 video card - General Tech 2

Splendid HD1 Automatic Display Mode for Ultimate Viewing
The Splendid HD1 is able to automatically select the best possible display modes to deliver exceptional quality visuals, and includes the following:

Photo Mode
Tailored for photo viewing or daily computing, the Splendid HD1 increases color performance and dynamic contrasting, so images of the weather are always clearer, colors of the flowers are more vibrant, and photos will look much better.

Video Mode
Fine tuned to deliver action movies in the best possible way, the Splendid HD1 focuses on image edge enhancing to minimize blurring caused by today’s LCD monitors, so that users can see clear bullet trails even in the most chaotic scenes. For drama movies, the increased color depth and contrast allows the smallest details hidden in the darkest corners to be seen.

Game Mode
For FPS gamers, enemies will seem to jump out from the blurry background in the most adrenaline rushing FPS games. For RPG/Action gamers, true cinematic gaming with a Demo mode* is also provided so that users can compare the impact of the processing in several configurations.
* An ASUS graphics card is required to enable this function.
