ASUS GTX980Ti Strix SLI Review
Whenever a new graphics card is released, such as the GTX980Ti, we know that there are a large proportion of our audience who wont move an inch until they've seen what ASUS are going to bring to the table.
Famed for their Republic of Gamers cards the most recent models have been pared down to the extremely high-end Matrix and the new Strix. It's a Strix card that we have in our clammy hands today, and this one comes complete with the latest ASUS cooler - the Direct CU III.
We could just push all of our games through the card and leave it at that, but such has been the excellence of the GM200 Maxwell chip that powers the GTX980Ti - as well as the Titan X - that we know we'd quickly be repeating ourselves about how fast it can go.
For today's review therefore ASUS have kindly given us a pair of their latest card so we can test the card at stock and overclocked, as well as how they work as a pair. Yessir, GTX980Ti SLI. Are you as expectant as us?
Unquestionably the major talking point from the specifications are those monster boost clock numbers. Nearly 1300MHz in Gaming mode and 1317 in OC Mode. Numbers that any card could be proud of when overclocked, let alone just coming out of the box. But you want to see the new cooler so let's crack on.
