[PR] ASUS Announces Strix GTX 960
ASUS has announced the availability of Strix GTX 960 this coming February. The Strix GTX 960, which is priced at Php 13,330, is an all-new gaming graphics card packed with exclusive ASUS technologies, including DirectCU II for cooler, quieter and faster performance for incredible action gaming, and 0dB fan technology for totally-silent light gameplay.

New card features include the following:

— Exclusive ASUS Super Alloy Power components for enhanced durability and cooling
— GPU Tweak with XSplit Gamecaster for overclocking and online streaming
— DisplayPort interface to support connections up to 4K/UHD (ultra-high definition) resolution.

Strix GTX 960 is factory-overclocked at 1291 MHz and has a 1317 MHz boost clock speed in OC Mode that delivers stunning gaming performance. It provides 12% faster gameplay in Assassin’s Creed® Unity and Battlefield 4, and runs the 3DMark 11 (Extreme) benchmark at 1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution 6.5% faster than reference designs. It is fitted with 2 GB of high-speed GDDR5 video memory that races along at boosted speeds of up to 7200MHz.

With the ASUS-exclusive DirectCU II cooling technology, the Strix GTX 960 is cooler as the technology provides 220% more heat dissipation, resulting in PC performance that is 30% cooler and 3X quieter than reference.

Strix GTX ups the ante even more with 0dB fan technology that lets players enjoy light gaming in complete silence, due to a thermal design that is able to keep GPU temperatures below a set level, when the fan stops completely.

Strix GTX 960 uses a single 6-pin power connecter for clean, hassle-free cable management and has a convenient connection indicator LED to ensure successful plug-in.

GPU Tweak in Strix GTX 960 includes a customized version of the XSplit Gamecaster streaming tool and a free one-year free XSplit Premium license.[1] XSplit Gamecaster lets users record and share on-screen action over the internet in real time, meaning others can watch live as games are played. Gamers can also easily monitor system stats, such as frame rate, CPU load, temperature, and more, while they play, as well as modify performance settings with a simple click of the GPU Tweak button.
