ABIT Launches the FX5600 Series of VGA Cards
With Advanced ABIT Engineered Cooling

The Siluro FX5600 Ultra OTES, FX5600 OTES and the FX5600 DT

Taipei, Taiwan, July 14th, 2003-Targeted specifically at hardware enthusiast gamers who demand better cooling and more overclocking options, ABIT has released its newest VGAs based on the NVIDIA GeForce FX5600 and FX5600 Ultra GPUs: the Siluro FX5600 Ultra OTES, Siluro FX5600 OTES and Siluro FX5600 DT (available in 128 and 256 MB versions). The NVIDIA® GeForce™ FX5600 and FX5600 Ultra GPUs take your graphics to new levels and ABIT’s Siluro VGA Cards bring you the best in gaming performance. The GeForce FX5600 line delivers great 3D graphics performance and the revolutionary new NVIDIA CinelFX™ engine introduces cinematic-quality special effects and studio-quality colour to your home PC.


Introducing ABIT Engineered VGA Cooling



With the FX5600 line, NVIDIA introduces great-performing GPUs to date. Only ABIT breaks the standard VGA format and offers truly innovative VGA cooling resulting in a more effectively cooled card. For the user, this cooling means a cooler system, higher overclocks, the best in gaming and 3D performance and unmatched stability. ABIT doesn’t simply offer an FX5600 VGA Card with a cookie-cutter design. ABIT Engineered ensures that when you are playing with an ABIT Siluro FX5600 VGA card, you are playing with an advantage.

OTES: The Most Advanced and Effective VGA Cooling Solution

OTES is ABIT’s patented VGA cooling solution that quickly transfers heat away from the GPU and puts it where it belongs: outside your PC case. Thus OTES works to reduce both the GPU temperature as well as your case temperature. Hardware monitoring ensures your system stays quiet when the GPU is inactive. Other VGA cooling solutions that look similar simply do not provide the advantages of ABIT OTES. Other VGA cooling solutions that look similar simply do not provide the advantages of ABIT OTES. With the increasing heat of GPUs causing case temperatures to rise to alarming levels, standard cooling is quickly becoming inadequate. With increasing heat inside the case, all components will suffer. Excessive and prolonged ambient case heat will not only cause more system crashes, it will dramatically reduce the life of your PC.



On the ABIT Siluro FX5600 OTES and Ultra OTES, the ABIT Engineers have reduced the sound of the VGA card to around 25 decibels. How quiet is 25 decibels? Consider that a garbage truck operates at about 100 decibels, you speak at around 60 decibels, your living room is approximately 40 decibels and a library is at 30 decibels. Sounds that most people cannot hear start at 10 decibels. With OTES, your VGA card will operate at the coolest levels and your gaming and 3D performance at the highest levels.


Visor: The Dynamic ABIT Engineered VGA Heatsink

ABIT is proud to announce its latest innovation in cooling technology for the Siluro FX 5600 DT: the Visor. Not only does the Visor look way cooler than other VGA cards, it actually is cooler. Thanks to Visor’s unique all-aluminium dynamic fly-over structure, heat is conducted away from the GPU with far greater efficiency over a much broader surface area. Thus the ABIT Siluro FX5600 DT also offers a unique ABIT cooling approach. Like it’s big brother OTES, Visor operates with the goal of better cooling the VGA Card in order to increase your system performance. With Visor, you are ready for far more stable overclocking than other VGAs without such advanced cooling architecture.
