ASUS and Nvidia held Gamers’ Gatherings in Manila and Cebu last March 19 and 21. The gaming tandem showcase their latest graphics cards and ASUS motherboards to select power users, media, and gamers. The duo showcased the newly launched NvidiaGeForce GTX 960’s performance and benefits in terms of efficiency and power consumption. ASUS Gamer series motherboards were also available to test various ASUS-exclusive motherboard features.
ASUS Strix GTX 960
Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 960, based on their new Maxwell architecture, is a new graphics solution capable of playing recent games at 1080p resolution without compromise. The card also stands as a cost-efficient solution for gamers that plan on upgrading their systems.
ASUS’ offering of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 is a class of its own. Overclocked out of the box, the ASUS Strix GTX 960 DirectCU II OC has better performance and speed over the reference design. It also comes with the ASUS-exclusive DirectCU II cooling technology, benefitting the user with near-silent operation while being 30% cooler.
Part of the Strix series graphics cards’ charms is the 0dB Fan Technology. Playing light games and applications warrant no additional cooling from the fans, thus making the system quieter and silent.
The ASUS GTX 960 DirectCU II OC comes with the ASUS GPU Tweak and an Xplit Premium account, worth about $100 for one year.
ASUS Gamer Motherboards
ASUS Gamer motherboards are practical and feature-filled foundations for today’s gaming PCs. Packing features such as SupremeFX, GameFirst II, and Gamer’s Guardian, ASUS Gamer motherboards are more than just true gaming companions.
SupremeFX, a solution previously exclusive to ROG motherboards, come with ASUS Gamer motherboards for high-quality reproduction of audio. This board-based design translates to a plethora of soft applications such as the ASUS Sonic Radar.
Equipped with Intel LAN Chips, ASUS Gamer motherboards are dependable even in online applications. Intel LAN works in tandem with ASUS’ GameFirst II to provide the best gaming experience in an online setting.
Gamers are known for pushing and using hardware for extended periods of time. With that in mind, ASUS included a number of solutions to strengthen Gamer motherboards’ durability and longevity. Gamer’s Guardian acts as an overall solution with its above-standard 10K capacitors, 72-hour salt spray for back I/O rust resistance, and DIGI+ VRM for accurate voltage control.
