We've waited a long time to get our hands on the Striker, and it's fair to say that the ROG branding is in full effect here. It would be easy for ASUS to trim a little here and there because of the £230 price tag, but the box is indistinguishable from the more expensive ROG offerings. A good start.

The card itself looks fantastic, we're sure you'll agree. It utilises the same cooler design as the top-end ROG cards, and we all know that usually you're forced to accept a cheaper looking card when you pay less money. With the inclusion of a back-plate and their latest shroud design, the Striker could pass for a vastly more expensive model.

In case you're disbelieving of our claims about how impressive the GTX760 Striker is to look at, let's compare it with the eye-wateringly expensive ASUS Matrix. The main difference is largely the black heatpipe on the Matrix which is just a regular colour on the Striker. Sure the name on the backplate is somewhat of a giveaway but when they are installed in your system it's very hard to tell the difference.

You can have two cards that look like well over a grands worth of graphics card for well under the price of a single 780Ti. If that doesn't make you grin then you might need to check your pulse.

I must say that those cards look fantastic aesthetically, especially as a pair.

Good explanation for the VRAM aswell, everyone that said the 4GB cards were unnecessary will have to eat their words now that "next gen" is underway.Quote

Not sure you've been keeping up with current events, but Watch Dogs is no darling of anyone...

Either way nice review, great to see higher VRam really making sense now. It's about damn time!Quote

Here's my million dollar question, how smooth did Watchdogs play on these cards in SLI? My 780 SLI can get an average of about 70 fps @ 1440p completely maxed out but the moment I start riding a vehicle with any sort of speed, the frame rate tanks to about 20 - 30. It recovers very quickly but it still making the driving choppy. I've even heard it doesn't run well at 1080 maxed on Titan SLI. I heard the frames don't tank quite as hard but it's sounds to me like it's not well optimized. I have other games that use all the 3gb of vram on my cards but still play like butter. I would love to see some 6gb card and 8gb AMD card results.Quote
