ASUS G50V - Extreme Graphics Performance for Total Gaming Experience

    Mumbai, February 25, 2009: ASUS, a worldwide leader in notebook design and the fastest growing notebook brand, today announced the launch of the ASUS G50V – one of the fastest gaming laptops to be launched in India. Aimed at portable gamers, the G50V looks at delivering extreme gaming performance with intense visual computing power. ASUS has equipped the G50V with an Nvidia GeForce 9700M GT graphics processor backed by 512MB of dedicated GDDR3 memory to provide a complete gaming experience for the Indian gaming enthusiast. The 9700M has 32 DirectX 10-class "compute cores" and a 128-bit memory interface, and it is largely derived from the G96 GPU that powers desktop graphics cards like the GeForce 9500 GT.

    Mr Albert Tung, Managing Director, ASUS India said, “ASUS is already strong in the Netbook segment in India. With the launch of G50V we are strengthening our position in the high end notebook category in India. We are very excited about our new offering and are sure that Indian consumers will see immense value for a total gaming experience.”

    Mr Stanley Wu, Country Head for Notebook Business, ASUS India said, “We believe in providing the best technology in all our product categories to our customers. The G50V is one of the most revolutionary products in the high end gaming category. With a gaming focused design and strong graphics, the ASUS G50V will redefine performance and enhance the entire gaming experience for the user.”
