  ECS Unveils Motherboards w/Dual Graphic Engines
  Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS)¬†announced a complete line of motherboards featuring Dual Graphic Engines. Dual Graphic Engines enable a ‚??multi-graphics‚?? concept. Two engines work together in one system to generate a dual 3D graphics display. The ‚??Dual Graphic Engines‚?? solution delivers dramatic efficiency, productivity and usability benefits supporting simultaneous display on up to four devices.

The new architecture solves the latest dilemma of choosing between the mainstream AGP 8X technology and the new technology - PCI-Express x16, increasing a motherboards‚?? flexibility and a products upgrade ability. A more affordable upgrade path allows users to stagger their purchases, by upgrading the motherboard and processor while keeping their existing AGP graphics card and adding a new PCI-Express card at a later date.

Dual Graphic Engines motherboards are tailor-made for users that want to display MORE on their screen. Based on the multi-tasking concept promoted by Microsoft, Intel and AMD, the Dual Graphic Engines concept delivers tangible productivity benefits demanded by today‚??s PC buyers, saving time and reducing frustration by reducing the requirement for ‚??drag and drop‚?? among multiple windows on a single screen.

ECS 915P-A Motherboard

According to a research from Microsoft, by using multi-monitor for standard tasks, office, window management and switching between documents, it is estimated that users will notice a 20 to 50 percent productivity gain.

The new Dual Graphic Engines are also capable of delivering dual display in 3D graphic applications. With most dual monitor graphics cards, only the main monitor channel can be used to run 3D applications such as games and DVD‚??s. For users that wish to run 3D applications over multiple monitors, this new technology can be utilised - Two graphics cards, an AGPX8 and a PCI Express card, can be used in parallel to generate full 3D graphics on two separate displays, harnessing the full 3D potential of the graphics cards.

About PCI Express Lite

PCI Express Lite is a patented ECS design. It‚??s not only an expansion of PCI-E x16 graphics card capabilities, but also supports the multi-display function. With this innovation, a motherboard can be supporting a PCI-E x16 graphics card to experience pleasure and productivity benefits of multi-display to expand their available workspace.

About AGP Express

AGP Express is a patented ECS design delivering the backward compatibility for the VGA interface. Chipsets including the 915P, 915GV, 910GL, 865GV and 845GV, were originally designed without AGP 8x graphics card support, but with this ECS innovative technical breakthrough, standard AGP 8x is now available on these platforms.

About Intel GMA 900

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900 (Intel GMA 900 graphics) the graphics subsystem in an integrated solution, delivers over 1.5 times faster performance than previous Intel graphics. It is designed to take full advantage of the power that an Intel Pentium 4 processor brings to a PC and utilizes system memory for both system and graphics usage, balancing both usages for optimal performance.

ECS‚??s new range of Dual Graphic Engine Products will be rolled out during the first quarter of 2005.
