ASUS GTX760 Striker SLI Review

ASUS GTX760 Striker SLI Review


The GTX760 is, to some degree, the forgotten card of the nVidia range. 

If you want a bargain basement one you buy the 750Ti. Want lots of power, 780Ti. A budget that’s not unlimited but you still want to be able to game at the highest level, then the GTX770 is the card for you. The GTX760, by comparison, is neither one thing nor another. This is somewhat exacerbated by the very average looks of the available cards.

ASUS have decided to rectify this by applying their ROG branding to a GTX760 and named it the Striker. A card with outstanding looks, as we’ll get to on the next page, but priced sensibly enough to tempt you in.

Knowing that two lower specification cards can make an all-singing one sweat, we’re also going to be testing the GTX760 Striker in an SLI configuration. Can it challenge a GTX780Ti?

Technical Specifications

As with all graphics cards the specifications only tell a portion of the story. The Striker has a good standard speed, an excellent boost speed, and plenty of outputs.

The real point worth of note is the inclusion of 4GB of GDDR5. As the XBone and PS4 have so much memory available to them now this is bound to trickle down into PC games, so the move up to 4GB could help futureproof the Striker as much as possible.
