ASUS Unveils the Strix GTX 750 Ti OC Graphics Card

ASUS today announced Strix GTX 750 Ti OC, a new graphics cards powered by the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti graphics-processing unit (GPU) and designed for players who like to game on the edge of instinct.

Taken from the ancient Roman and Greek word for owl, Strix is the brand name for the stunning new ASUS gaming-gear series. Strix means the keenest hearing and sharpest eyesight and the ability to feel the environment, enabling the player to detect and react to even the slightest movement. Strix means survival on the very edge of instinct. Strix is in gamers' blood, just as it is in ours.

Strix GTX 750 Ti OC is packed with exclusive ASUS technologies, including DirectCU II for cooler, quieter and faster performance for incredible action gaming, and 0dB-cooling technology for light gameplay in total silence and Blu-ray movie playback that's free from distracting background noise.

The new card also features exclusive ASUS Super Alloy Power components for enhanced durability and cooling, and GPU Tweak for overclocking and online streaming that's as simple as it is flexible.

Strix GTX 750 Ti OC is fitted with 2 GB of high-speed GDDR5 video memory and races along at boosted speeds of up to 1202 MHz.

Play in total silence, and 7.7% faster and 58% cooler than reference
Strix GTX 750 Ti OC is equipped with exclusive DirectCU II cooling technology. This innovative design puts highly-conductive 6mm copper cooling pipes in direct contact with a card's GPU, so heat is dissipated quickly and with extreme efficiency. The new card also benefits from a heat-sink that delivers a heat-dissipation area that's 190% larger than reference, allowing Strix GTX 750 Ti OC to perform 58% cooler and run three-times (3X) quieter than reference for ultra-stable hardcore gaming with very low noise.

When playing at high-definition (HD) resolutions of up to 1920 x 1080 pixels, and in environmental temperatures of up to 50°C, the Strix GTX 750 Ti OC automatically stop its fan - allowing gamers to enjoy titles like Counter-Strike Online in absolute (0dB) silence.

Built for durability, designed to perform
Strix GTX 750 Ti OC is built with Super Alloy Power components for enhanced durability and cooling. Solid-state capacitors, concrete-core chokes and hardened MOSFETs are all designed to withstand much greater stress thanks to the application of specially-formulated materials. Super Alloy Power technology also reduces power noise such as buzzing and increases a graphics card's longevity by up to two-and-a-half times (2.5X) greater than reference.

Strix GTX 750 Ti OC also includes GPU Tweak, an ASUS-exclusive tool that enables users to control GPU speeds, voltages and video-memory clock speeds in real time - so overclocking is both easy and can be carried out with high confidence.

GPU Tweak's built-in streaming tool lets users share on-screen action over the internet in real time, meaning others can watch live as games are played. It's even possible to add a title to the streaming window along with scrolling text, pictures and webcam images.

Strix GTX 750 Ti OC will be available worldwide from the end of July 2014.

The first paragraph is such nonsense... I really wonder what kind of person comes up with such silly marketing talk.

Putting Lipstick on a... well a perhaps only an ever slightly leaner Pig. These AIB's got nothing else Nvidia, so they're hoping to make folks believe such GM107's are exulted higher than they really are.

[H] showed how two basically similar Asus models of the R7 265 and 750Ti, and what each could achieve OC'd while delivering 1080p gaming. Interesting how even the power in stock mode the GM107 was like 4% less than a 265, while OC'n they only deviated by 25W (9%), but even for that the OC R7 265 was more often providing higher and playable setting. Then consider the GTX750Ti DC II comes with just a simple aluminum extrusion with dual fan (this Strix has heatpipes) it was still not a determinant to cooling or noise. While the R7 265 DC II give a decent two heat-pipe cooler, and the ability to deliver 5% / 8% cooler in loaded gaming while not any dissimilar in sound. Now sure the Nvidia from Asus is running $130 –AR$20 $130; while the AMD was $150-AR$10; the value proposition long term as [H] indicated has to be with the R7 265 especially given the 256-Bit 2Gb memory. However the best right now is the Asus in R9 270 trim at $151; after 5% off promo code and $20.00 rebate.

I’d like to see this Strix version up against that Asus R9 270; OC vs. OC just like [H] did and see where the value/efficiency proposition really hits.

Edit: It was made more evident on another sight (I gave up on this write-up about the 2nd ¶). What this is about is Asus moved it up to use a "heat-pipe cooler", and whenever below 65°C the fans turn off and the card runs passively. Ok, I could see this if in a Media/HTPC for watching BlueRays, but for light non-demanding gaming? Asus is going as far in saying it can offer Counter Strike, at 1920x1080, and be in passive mode. I suppose if you like playing Counter Stike in complete dead-silence this is what you've been waiting for. o_O
