ASUS Strix Gaming Graphics Cards With 0dB Fan Technology

We’re proud to announce that the Strix R9 280 and GTX 780 gaming graphics cards have just launched with 0dB fan technology. Yep, in some scenarios they will literally run silent. The GTX 780 model has double memory: 6GB, while both have 10-phase power design that reduces power noise by 30% and increases efficiency by 15% versus reference designs. The cards are built with DIGI+ VRM and hard-wearing POSCAPs, while the DirectCU-like cooler has been upgraded with ’0dB technology’. When the GPU temp is below 65C the card will run in passive mode with the fans turned off. The large heatsink works to efficiently absorb and dissipate the minimal heat generated by low loads, so while you’re surfing the internet, watching videos, playing light games آ– your graphics card won’t make a sound.
