ASUS Announces 0dB Strix R9 280 and GTX 780 Graphics Cards

ASUS announced their upcoming Strix R9 280 and GTX 780 graphics cards, which are dubbed to be 15% faster, 20% cooler and 3x quieter. The Strix series is also said to expand this year and incorporate other products such as exceptionally agile mice, super-cool gaming graphics cards, boundary-pushing keyboards and awesome gaming headsets.

The Strix ASUS version of the R9 280 and GTX 780 presents DirectCU II technology, giving the user a cooler, quieter and faster performance for high-end action gaming. In addition to the latter, the 0dB-cooling technology allows the graphics cards to offer total silence in gaming sessions.

ASUS DIGI+ voltage regulation modules are also featured on the graphics cards, providing enhanced stability and efficiency while the GPU Tweak feature provides simple overclocking and online streaming.

Both Strix R9 280 and GTX 780 graphics cards present a new exclusive fan design, which is said to be able to allow gamers to enjoy latest titles played in full HD ( 1920 x 1080 ) at environmental temperatures of 65˚C in total silence by stopping the fans. The temperature is then maintained with the help of highly conductive 10mm copper cooling pipes in direct contact with the card’s GPU, along with a heat-sink that delivers a heat-dissipation area which is 220% larger than reference.

In terms of specs, the ASUS Strix R9 280 comes with 3GB of GDDR5 memory and a 384-bit memory interface, having the GPU clocked at 980 MHz and memory clocked at 5200 MHz. Looking at the output ports, the graphics card presents one DVI-D, one DVI-I, one HDMI and one Display Port.

The ASUS Strix GTX 780 however features 6GB of GDDR5 memory and a 384-bit memory interface, having the GPU clocked at 889 MHz base and can go up to 941 MHz when boosted while the memory is clocked at 6008 MHz. In terms of connectivity, the output ports seem to be similar to the R9 280, having one DVI-D, one DVI-I, one HDMI and one Display Port.

No confirmed release date and price has been announced for the two graphics cards, but more details can be found on ASUS’ official website.
