Arriving later this month, Asus has announced the Strix GTX 980 Ti , a new graphics card designed to run far cooler and quieter than anything Asus has manufactured to date. Powered by the latest GeForce GTX 980 Ti graphics processing units (GPUs), the Strix GTX 980 Ti features GPU boost clock speeds of up to 1291 MHz in gaming mode and 1317 MHz in OC (overclocking) mode.

According to Asus, it delivers up to 24% faster gaming performance than reference cards in The Witcher 3. It is packed with exclusive ASUS technologies, including DirectCU III with a patented triple wing-blade 0dB fan designed to deliver maximum airflow for 30% cooler temperatures and three times quieter performance. So much so, that Asus claims the DirectCU III to be the coolest and quietest graphics card-cooling solution available to date.  

The Strix GTX 980 Ti also features Asus Auto-Extreme technology (featured in video below) with Super Alloy Power II components for premium quality and reliability, plus GPU Tweak II with XSplit Gamecaster for intuitive performance tweaking and instant gameplay streaming.

Redesigned with an intuitive, all-new user interface, GPU Tweak II is designed to make gaming and overclocking easier and more visual than ever, while still retaining advanced options for seasoned overclockers. The new Gaming Booster function maximizes system performance by removing select redundant processes and allocating all available resources automatically.

Added to this, Asus has included a one year XSplit Gamecaster premium license (valued at $100) letting gamers easily stream or record gameplay via an in-game overlay. The final flourish Asus has integrated into the Strix GTX 980 Ti is the Strix LED that pulsates with various light effects.

Asus says the Strix GTX 980 Ti will be rolled out globally throughout July, but for now, no official pricing or release date has been detailed for local customers.
