ASUS GTX980Ti Matrix SLI Review

Test Setup

ASUS GTX980Ti Matrix
Another ASUS GTX980Ti Matrix

Corsair Neutron GTX
Corsair H100i
Windows 7 x64  


Overclocking the Matrix is, as you would expect, simplicity itself. Another 75MHz from the already speedy GDDR5 and 80MHz GPU Core speeds are not to be sniffed at. Even more impressive is the GPU Boost 2.0 taking the card past 1400MHz on its own. Unbelievable stuff. The quality of the cooler and components shine like a beacon with nVidia's automatic overclocking technology, which is why we're running the Matrix at stock in our graphs. As you'll soon see, it doesn't exactly lack performance.

Normally we don't bother to show you to software. After all there is only so much excitement to be drawn from a bunch of sliders. However, below the various modes in the GPU Tweak II software we find a burn button. If you've spent a day extracting the best possible overclock from your Matrix you can burn those settings to the BIOS ensuring your card runs at those speeds regardless of where it's installed or if you need to perform a reformat.

Nicely done good sir, and still with the uncontrollable LED Asus (tut tut, please bring in this option) as for the colour I quite actually like the bronze-ish theme although I'd be more impressed if they were to create the mid - high end cards with a neutral base colour scheme and maybe supply an accent decal kit, food for thought ASUS!?!

All in all the Asus republic of gamers GTX 980 Ti Matrix super duper massive huge colossal GTI GTX GT 16v Twin Turbo Injection Twin Cam top level 9999 sure is an impressive card and those clocks with GPUBoost 2 are incredible, great work on another game changer Asus, maybe work on the name though I'm not sure it's long enough.Quote

I can't figure out what is happening with the graphs anymore. Are the highlighted scores not overclocked? If it was overclocked would it wipe the floor with the Classified and the Lightning? (finally got to that part of the review, I guess still is it just a good factory OC or exceptional card as well)

Very lazy way of adding some meat to the cooler there. Lost my mind at the cough
