ASUS today announced Strix GTX 980 Ti, a super-cool new video card with pumped gaming performance, perfected manufacturing, and strong fortification for extreme reliability and longevity. Powered by the latest GeForce GTX 980 Ti graphics-processing units (GPUs), Strix GTX 980 Ti features GPU boost clock speeds of up to 1291 MHz in gaming mode and 1317 MHz in OC mode, delivering up to 24% faster gaming performance than reference cards in The Witcher 3. It is packed with exclusive ASUS technologies, including DirectCU III with a patented triple wing-blade 0dB fan designed to deliver maximum airflow for 30%-cooler and three times (3X) quieter performance.
Strix GTX 980 Ti also has ASUS Auto-Extreme technology with Super Alloy Power II components for premium quality and reliability, plus GPU Tweak II with XSplit Gamecaster for intuitive performance tweaking and instant gameplay streaming.
Cool, silent gameplay: DirectCU III with triple wing-blade 0dB fan design
Strix GTX 980 Ti is equipped with ASUS-exclusive DirectCU III cooling technology, which features two exclusive 10mm direct-GPU-contact heat pipes - outperforming reference designs for gaming performance that's up to 30% cooler. It has three fans engineered with a patented, new wing-blade design that delivers maximum airflow and static pressure over the heat sink - giving a 105% improvement over fans without wing-blades. This exclusive triple wing-blade design operates at noise levels three times (3X) quieter than reference cards, making DirectCU III the coolest and quietest video card-cooling solution available to date. Strix GTX 980 Ti also features 0dB fan technology, which stops fan rotation completely during lighter gaming sessions - eliminating noise for undisturbed gameplay.
Premium quality and reliability: Auto-Extreme technology with Super Alloy Power II components
Strix GTX 980 Ti benefits from ASUS-exclusive Auto-Extreme technology, the industry's first 100%-automated manufacturing process that removes human fallibility from the production line for consistent perfection - making it ultra-reliable in all scenarios, from general everyday use to hardcore gaming and overclocking. Auto-Extreme technology eliminates flux to minimize dust buildup and oxidization, and makes the rear side of the video card's printed-circuit board totally smooth, increasing comfort for system-builders and enhancing overclocking capability by freeing space to add POSCAP capacitors. This new manufacturing process is also environmentally friendly, eliminating harsh chemicals and reducing power consumption by 50%.
Strix GTX 980 Ti features Super Alloy Power II components that enhance efficiency, reduce power loss, decrease buzzing under load, and lower thermal dynamics for unsurpassed quality and reliability. Strix GTX 980 Ti features a superior 12+2-phase power design compared to reference cards built with 8+2-phase power designs.
Complementing its amazing reliability, Strix GTX 980 Ti is built to be incredibly tough. It comes with a GPU-fortifier and strengthened backplate that provides superior GPU protection and also prevents the PCB bending over time.
Tweakable and intuitive: GPU Tweak II with XSplit Gamecaster
Redesigned with an intuitive, all-new user interface, GPU Tweak II makes gaming and overclocking easier and more visual than ever, while still retaining advanced options for seasoned overclockers. With one click, the new Gaming Booster function maximizes system performance by removing redundant processes and allocating all available resources automatically. An included 1-year XSplit Gamecaster premium license - a $99 value - lets gamers easily stream or record gameplay via a convenient, in-game overlay.
The final must-have flourish for Strix GTX 980 Ti is the Strix LED that lends a style statement to any system, with pulsating light effects.
ASUS Strix GTX 980 Ti will be available worldwide from July 2015.
