Asus strix gtx 960 directcu2 oc 4gb review

NVIDIA recently launched the GTX 970 and GTX 980 based on its new "Maxwell" architecture, torching the market with an unreal combination of performance, power-draw, and fan-noise, which made them overkill for Full HD. The two can handle any game at QHD (1440p) & can provide playable frame-rates at 4K, with some eye-candy lowered. That creates the need for NVIDIA lớn come up with a GPU that"s just right for Full HD, but with low power-draw và pricing to benefit from the new architecture. "Maxwell" also presents NVIDIA with an opportunity to cut costs because its current sweet-spot graphics thẻ, the GeForce GTX 760, is based on a 3.5 billion-transistor GPU with a surface area of 294 mm² and just 24 percent less power draw than GTX 970 for 51 percent lower performance. Since NVIDIA is still on the 28 nm process, it might as well build a smaller GPU based on "Maxwell" lớn cut on costs, while hopefully transferring those savings to lớn the consumer.Full HD is still the most popular gaming-PC resolution, và the advents of 4K and affordable 1440p haven"t managed khổng lồ shake its dominance yet. People still seem lớn be buying monitors based on panel-kích thước rather than resolution and are also happy to hold onkhổng lồ a monitor for several years. There are, hence, three kinds of consumers: First are those on a tight budget và the ability to lớn buy a reasonably big (24-inch) Full HD monitor for cheap. Second are those who want to convert their vanilla desktops inkhổng lồ gaming PCs to game on their Full HD TVs. The third kind is holding onto an old Full HD monitor and drifts between a mid-range graphics card every other year. NVIDIA & AMD can hence ill-afford khổng lồ leave this resolution unaddressed with each new architecture.

That brings us to lớn NVIDIA"s most important launch ahead of Spring-Summer năm ngoái, the GeForce GTX 960. This thẻ is based on a brand-new silicon codenamed GM206. NVIDIA"s third chip based on "Maxwell", the GM206 is supposed khổng lồ be a successor khổng lồ the GK106 on which NVIDIA built the GeForce GTX 660. The new GTX 960, however, is meant lớn replace the GTX 660 & GTX 760 in the hàng hóa staông chồng, offering slightly higher performance at much lower power draw and noise, with greater room for price-cuts. It also brings some of the new features introduced with "Maxwell" khổng lồ the masses, such as real-time voxel illumination, MFAA (multi-frame sampled anti-aliasing), Dynamic Super-Resolution, VR Direct, Turf Effects, & PhysX Flex, along with community favorites like G-Sync & ShadowPlay.NVIDIA"s GeForce GTX 960 is priced at just $200, which is lower than what the GTX 760 was priced at on launch ($250). NVIDIA has clearly transferred some of the cost-savings due khổng lồ a smaller chip with lower power-draw, which translates inlớn a cheaper VRM, fewer memory chips, and a lighter cooler, khổng lồ the consumers. We are also convinced that there is room for more cost-cutting.

In this reviews, we have with us the ASUS GTX 960 STRIX OC, featuring the company"s signature STRIX cooling solution that turns off the fans while in idle or light gaming. ASUS has overclocked both GPU & memory, and also included a backplate with their thẻ. What makes the thẻ special is that it is quite compact, which could be useful for a small form-factor PC or media PC system.In terms of pricing, ASUS is expecting a $210 price for their card, which is only a small increase over the reference-design price.
