ASUS GTX980Ti Matrix SLI Review

Up Close

Here it is in all its glory. If you've spent any time at all browsing for graphics cards you'll have had a preconceived notion of what an ASUS ROG Matrix card looks like. That does mean that it requires some mental readjustment to get over the shock of the move away from the black and red design. Once you do though we think the Matrix looks spectacular. The ROG colour scheme has become ubiquitous and, by virtue of its success, lost some of its specialness. Now if anyone looks into your case there can be no doubt that you're running something at the very top of the available range.

This all hail to the orange ethos is continued onto the model name screen-printed to the backplate and the surround of the ROG logo itself on the side. More of that logo in our conclusion.

Power is provided by two 8pin PCIe inputs, and the business end of the card has all the outputs we've come to expect from nVidia. DVI, DisplayPort and the ever popular HDMI.

If one card looks gorgeous and two are seriously desirable then four have to whet the appetite of even the most jaded reader. It makes for some excellent graphics card porn shots. Just a shame we couldn't make use of them all.

Nicely done good sir, and still with the uncontrollable LED Asus (tut tut, please bring in this option) as for the colour I quite actually like the bronze-ish theme although I'd be more impressed if they were to create the mid - high end cards with a neutral base colour scheme and maybe supply an accent decal kit, food for thought ASUS!?!

All in all the Asus republic of gamers GTX 980 Ti Matrix super duper massive huge colossal GTI GTX GT 16v Twin Turbo Injection Twin Cam top level 9999 sure is an impressive card and those clocks with GPUBoost 2 are incredible, great work on another game changer Asus, maybe work on the name though I'm not sure it's long enough.Quote

I can't figure out what is happening with the graphs anymore. Are the highlighted scores not overclocked? If it was overclocked would it wipe the floor with the Classified and the Lightning? (finally got to that part of the review, I guess still is it just a good factory OC or exceptional card as well)

Very lazy way of adding some meat to the cooler there. Lost my mind at the cough
