ASUS’s STRIX Series started with AMD’s R9 280 series and NVIDIA’s GTX 780. From there the series has branched out to gaming peripherals, many of which we have also reviewed. STRIX has become ASUS’s mainstream gaming line behind their higher-end republic of gamers line. So when it comes to graphics card STRIX has effectively replaced the DirectCU line. While the cards still make use of variations of the DirectCU cooler, the marketing has changed to STRIX, which we feel is better anyways. That brings us to the card we are reviewing today, the STRIX GeForce GTX 970. The card features a nice factory overclock of 1114 MHz core and 1253 MHz GPU Boost, ASUS’s DirectCU II cooling with 0dB fan technology, which means the card will only run once it reaches a certain temperature threshold, a 6-phase DIGI+VRM design with Super Alloy Power and much more! Let’s see what this card can do!
ASUS’s upcoming STRIX Radeon R9 Fury has already been listed online in 3 different shops. All of the listings share the same information, so we are assuming the source is the same distribution center that is supplying all 3 shops. This more or less confirms that the STRIX Radeon R9 Fury will be available soon after the R9 Fury officially launches.
ASUS has been expanding their STRIX gaming line from just graphics cards, now they have keyboards, mice, headsets, and even mousepads. Today we will be taking a look at the STRIX Tactic Pro, which is a very nice mechanical gaming keyboard this is being offered with Cherry MX Black, Blue, Red and Brown switches. Besides just coming with mechanical key switches the keyboard has an astounding 21 macro keys, N-Key rollover over USB, full illumination, multimedia keys, and of course software to control everything. Is this a gaming keyboard you should consider? Read on as we find out!
We have been hearing about ASUS’s new DirectCU III technology for a few days and now we have a real photo of it! It will debut on the ASUS STRIX GTX 980 Ti graphics card. Unlike most graphics card cooling solutions from ASUS this new cooler will feature a triple-fan design. We assume that this new cooler was designed for AMD’s upcoming Radeon 300 Series, but as we said it will be found on the STRIX 980 Ti first.
ASUS has just revealed three new premium sound cards under its STRIX brand at Computex. These cards include the STRIX RAID DLX, STRIX RAID Pro, and STRIX Soar. These sounds cards have a similar design but offer different features and DSPs.
Along with the GeForce GTX 970 Strix, ASUS will also be releasing a GeForce GTX 980 Strix graphics card as well. We do not have a whole lot of information on the card itself and for the reason we do not expect it to be launched on September 19th.
The first detailed photos of ASUS’s upcoming Radeon R9 285 Strix Graphics Card have been revealed. The card will feature a dual-fan cooling solution that will keep the fans off until the GPU reaches a temperature threshold.
Along with the announcement of the STRIX brand and the GeForce GTX 780 6GB STRIX Edition, ASUS has just announced the STRIX Pro gaming headset. This is a multi-platform gaming headset engineered with powerful 60mm neodymium-magnet drivers, full-size hexagonal ear cushions (130mm across at the widest point) and technology that filters our over 90% of environmental noise.
ASUS is now joining EVGA, Palit and Gainward by offering a 6 GB version of the GeForce GTX 780. Normally we would expect a card like this to be part of ASUS’s Republic of Gamers or DirectCU II lines, but ASUS has actually launched a new brand called STRIX.
