Full reviews of the new Matrix GTX 980 from your favorite websites are due next week, but before we dig into the meaty details, here’s an overview of the specs and a couple of pictures to tease!
With four new world records already under Strix GTX 980’s belt, the coming few weeks are about to get interesting.
The ROG team has developed not one but two new Matrix cards, built on the fastest chips AMD and Nvidia have to offer: meet the Matrix R9 290X and Matrix GTX 780 Ti.
See inside for the photo gallery and first details on its new features!
Fitting the gap between R9 280X and R9 270X, the R9 280 (note that’s sans-X) is AMD’s performance-mainstream fighter in the graphics card market. The ASUS R9 280 DirectCU II has upgraded the stock card with its custom PCB and cooling; a dual-slot DirectCU II cooler that includes the ASUS exclusive CoolTech fan, while the Super Alloy Power hardware adds DIGI+ VRM and extremely hard-wearing POSCAP’s (polymerized organic-semiconductor capacitors) to simultaneously extend the life of the card, and increase overclocking performance.

At the other end of the scale from the new ultra-powerful Titan Black, the new GTX 750 and GTX 750 Ti are also launching today, and provide some great value gaming. Built using the new ‘Maxwell’ architecture (‘GM107′ core specifically), it is designed to be incredibly efficient. As you’d expect, ASUS DirectCU II OC versions of the GTX 750 and 750 Ti are significantly upgraded from the reference design to provide greater overclocking headroom with a revised PCB design, Super Alloy Power hardware and DirectCU II cooling.
