Asus has announced its newest GPU, the ROG Striker GTX 760 Platinum. Powered by the Nvidia GTX 760 GPU, two versions will be available for the public: Standard and Platinum and is expected to be the fastest GTX 760 in the market.
The Standard edition features a base 980 Mhz clockspeed which can be overclocked to reach 1033 Mhz. The Platinum version on the other hand comes with hand picked GPU Cores, that give you a base overclock of 1088 Mhz and boost overclock of 1150 MHz. According to Asus, the Platinum version increases performance by a whole 10 percent.
Both versions are based on Nvidia’s 28nm Kepler GK104 GPU, packing 1152 CUDA cores, 96 TMUS and 32 ROPs. What sets both versions of this card apart from the others is the 4GB GDDR5 bus speed clocking at an amazing 6008 Mhz, allowing for smooth game experiences as well as support for resolutions upto 2560 x 1600.
The cards feature black metallic solid state capacitors, hardened MOSFETs and 8 Phased Super Alloy Power Chokes to withstand stress and heat generated during extreme performance, the materials are specially formulated to increase the overall voltage threshold and lifespan of the card.
The GPU comes with a 10mm copper cooling fan, Cool Tech fan, which is in direct contact with the gpu, ensuring efficient heat dissipation. The Striker Platinum Cool Tech fan has a hybrid blade that provides multi-directional airflow, allowing a highly effective dissipation of heat. The fine-tuned fan-ramp ensures high performance with low noise generation.
Both Standard and Platinum version of the card will feature ASUS’ GPU Tweak utility which gives users greater control on the card’s resources, allowing easier overclocking. Common to all ROG Cards, The Striker GTX 760 will feature a ROG Logo which will change shades based on the performance load on the GPU.
The ROG Striker GTX 760 Standard and Platinum Edition are expected to be released in April this year.
