ASUS Announces the Strix GTX 960

ASUS today announced the Strix GTX 960, an all-new gaming graphics card packed with exclusive ASUS technologies. The ASUS Strix series of graphics cards is renowned for being pre-tuned to provide out-of the-box performance enhancements that reference designs cannot match آ– the Strix 960 is pre-overclocked to 1291 Mhz (1317MHz boost clock) for faster gaming performance and 0dB fan technology for totally-silent light gameplay.

The Strix GTX 960 comes with the ASUS-exclusive DirectCU II cooling technology for performance that is 30% cooler and 3X quieter than reference آ– making the card whisper quiet even when faced with heavy gaming loads."0dB fan technology" allows a player to enjoy light gaming in complete silence, due to a thermal design that is able to keep GPU temperatures low enough for the fan to stop completely when temps are below 55 Celsius. The card also features a strong, rigid backplate that helps dissipate heat quickly and provides an extra measure of protection against card damage.

The Strix GTX 960 has a 5-phase power design that enhances energy efficiency by 15%, provides better load tolerance, and improves overall stability and longevity compared to reference designs. The Strix 960 also uses a single 6-pin power connecter for clean, hassle-free cable management and has a convenient connection indicator LED to ensure successful plug-in.
