ASUS NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 STRIX-GTX980-DC2OC-4GD5 Review

When the power of a usual GPU is not enough anymore, there is the need for something special and ASUS NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 STRIX-GTX980-DC2OC-4GD5 might just be the answer for gamers that want to squeeze every tiny amount of power out of their cards in order to enjoy a superior gaming experience. The Strix version is an enhanced version of the classic GTX980 card, which is already a powerful GPU on its own.

 

 

To start off, you should understand what Strix is all about. NVIDIA took this name from the Ancient Greece and Rome, feeling that it is suited for the card. The Strix, or owl, has sharp eyesight for smooth graphics, has a strong talon for more OC possibilities, has a tactical mind that makes move without noise and it manages to keep everything under control thanks to GPU Tweak and the real-time response. This is what Strix means for NVIDIA, but if you want the numbers, they are also available.

 

 

The base clock of the GPU’s engine has a value of 1178 MHz, but this can be boosted up to 1279 MHz with ease, to go along with the 4GB of GDDR5 memory available. Further tweaks of the clock and of the voltage can get you in the range of 1450 MHz as a stable frequency. The memory clock has a value of 7010 MHz. However, the clock speed and the video memory aren’t enough on their own, as long as the interface is not good enough. But NVIDIA seems to have done its homework and packed a 256-bit interface into the ASUS NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 STRIX-GTX980-DC2OC-4GD5 for maximum performance.

 

 

There are five connection ports on the back of the card, but they are not quite the expected ones. The DisplayPort is not yet that popular… But should become quickly a must have for every good card. The Strix has 3 of them. Together with these, you’ll find with pleasure the classic HDMI and a DVI port. The new fan technology allows the card to fully shut down the fans when the temperature is low enough, so no more noise comes from the GPU. However, the auto settings might not catch on this detail and they might still provide power to the fan, even when not needed.

 

 

GPU Tweak can be put to work in order to bring the ASUS NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 STRIX-GTX980-DC2OC-4GD5 to a whole new level, although the automatic settings are not always the ones you might expect and some tinkering, combined with a bit of knowledge, will help you out much more. NVIDIA reports four world records when it comes to benchmarks performed on the Strix card. Just as the standard GTX 980, the Strix version of the GPU can also benefit from a SLI connection for maximized power. All of these features come packed in an elegant design, but you should double check your case and see if the 11.36” long GPU will get in there.

  • The Good :
    Increased performance, High overclock values, Extremely silent
  • The Bad :
    Automatic settings are not that useful, Fan might run even when not needed
Our score:
5 / 5
