Traditionally, a GPU Pixel Shader is a graphics function that calculates effects on a per-pixel basis. With ASUS' New Splendid Video Intelligence Technology however, the GPU Pixel Shader will be used to reduce CPU loading for the first time in the world. The New Splendid can amazingly reduce over 30% in CPU loading in comparison to the original version. Therefore, Full HD images enabled by ASUS' graphics cards can be fine-tuned to deliver vibrant visual representations in conditions most favorable to the human eye. With the New Splendid, watching movies on the PC is as good as watching them on top-of-the-line HDTVs.
