ASUS’s new graphic card cuts power consumption by 50 percent

Gorkha Post



KATHMANDU — Taiwan-based PC manufacturing company ASUS has launched a ROG virtual reality (VR) ready  gaming graphics card that is environmentally friendly and reduces power consumption by up to 50 percent, the company claims.

Asus says the ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080 runs cooler and performs superior to any Founders Edition SKU. In the default Gaming mode, the ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080 features a base clock speed of 1,759MHz, up from 1,607MHz on Nvidia’s reference blueprint, and boost clock speed of 1,898MHz, up from 1,733MHz.

To wring a tiny bit more performance out of the card, there’s an OC mode that gooses clocks to 1,784MHz (base) and 1,936MHz (boost).

The ASUS ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080 graphic card also features ASUS Aura RGB lighting to create better illumination effects and is capable of displaying millions of colors and six different effects for a totally personalised gaming system, ASUS said in a statement.

The graphic card has ‘DirectCU III’ cooling technology with a triple wing-blade fan designed to deliver maximum airflow for 30 percent cooler and three times (3X) quieter performance.

A VR-friendly design with two HDMI ports lets gamers always keep a VR device connected to their system for immersive gaming anytime.

The graphic card also comes with ASUS ‘FanConnect’ technology. When gaming, the GPU often runs hotter than the CPU, but chassis fans usually only reference CPU temperatures, resulting in inefficient system cooling.

‘FanConnect’ solves this issue with two 4-pin GPU-controlled headers that can be connected to system fans to provide targeted supplemental cooling for optimal thermal performance.
