“So what do R&D guys do to unwind and what do they get up to in those rare times when they do not have deadlines to meet? Well, they have some fun creating new products which are not necessarily aimed at being launched, just a test of what can be done… and that brings us to todays product.
The Trinity is a unique graphics card created by the VGA R&D department at Asus and today we will be taking a look at it to find out what the end result is when these guys play around.”

Proof of concept
The engineers at ASUS had enough free time to create the Trinity, a triple 3850 card and one that you won’t getr to play with. It simply exists to prove that it can be done, this card won’t make it to retail. DriverHeaven was lucky enough to get a chance to play with the card as well as trying out some synthetic benchmarks against three 3850s in Crossfire. The performance is about equal to the Crossfire setup and shows up a single GPU, not bad for one oversized PCI-e card.
