ASUS GTX760 Striker SLI Review

Test Setup

ASUS GTX760 Striker SLI
Intel Core i7-4960X @ 4.4GHz
ASUS Rampage IV Extreme
Corsair Dominator Platinum 2133
Corsair AX1500i
Corsair Neutron GTX
Corsair H100i
Windows 7 x64 

In case you doubted the value of putting 4GB of GDDR5 on the Striker, Watch Dogs, the latest game in our test suite and the poster child for next generation gaming, uses 3.5GB at 1080P. Unquestionably the extra video memory should aid in performance when compared to a card with a more standard amount on board.

Temperatures

The cooler works very well, being quiet and keeping the Striker cool. Even in SLI, where there is obviously a reduction in airflow, the cards still only hit the level of the reference GTX760.

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

Watch Dogs, the current darling of the gaming crowd
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
