ASUS Unveils the Radeon RX 480 DUAL 4GB

ASUS unveiled the Radeon RX 480 DUAL 4GB graphics card (DUAL-RX480-O4G). Based on a non-reference design by ASUS, the card derives its name from a dual-fan cooling solution. It features a custom-design PCB, which is shorter than the one found on the company's STRIX graphics cards; and which draws power from a single 8-pin PCIe power connector. The cooler shroud is made of glossy white ABS plastic, and goes well with the color-scheme of some of ASUS' more recent mainline motherboards. Also on tap is a factory-overclock of 1320 MHz boost GPU, while the memory ticks at 7.00 GHz (GDDR5-effective). ASUS didn't reveal pricing, but we expect it to be priced under $220.

ASUS Intros the GeForce GTX 1070 DUAL Graphics Card

ASUS introduced its fifth GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card, the GTX 1070 DUAL (model: DUAL-GTX1070-O8G). This card mates a custom-design PCB by ASUS with dual-fan (though not DirectCU II) cooling solution. This cooler features a cooler shroud that has the same design language as some of ASUS' mainline X99 II and Z170 series motherboards. The cooler features a pair of wing-blade fans that have low noise footprint. The card offers factory-overclocked speeds of 1582 MHz core, 1771 MHz GPU Boost, and an untouched 8.00 GHz (GDDR5-effective) memory. The card draws power from a single 8-pin PCIe power connector. Display outputs include three DisplayPorts 1.4 and an HDMI 2.0b.

ASUS Radeon RX 480 STRIX Pictured

Here are some of the first pictures of ASUS Radeon RX 480 STRIX, the company's premium custom-design RX 480 graphics card. Designed to overcome the power and noise shortcomings of the reference design, the RX 480 STRIX features a custom-design PCB by ASUS which draws power from a combination of 6-pin and 8-pin PCIe power connectors, conditioning it with a strong VRM.

The Radeon RX 480 STRIX from ASUS features the same variant of the DirectCU III cooling solution featured on the company's GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 STRIX graphics cards, featuring a large aluminium fin-stack heatsink that's ventilated by three fans. This cooler features ASUS Aura compliant RGB LED lighting on not just the cooler shroud, but also the back-plate. Apparently AMD's AIB partners are having better luck at keeping the RX 480's engine clocks above the 1.50 GHz mark, with their custom VRM and cooling solutions.

ASUS Intros GeForce GTX 1070 Turbo

ASUS introduced the GeForce GTX 1070 Turbo graphics card (model: TURBO-GTX1070-8G). Based on essentially the same product design as the GTX 1080 Turbo launched earlier this month, this card could be the company's most affordable GTX 1070 offering, priced close to the $379 baseline price NVIDIA set for this SKU. It features a lateral cooling solution strapped onto a custom-design PCB by ASUS, which draws power from a single 8-pin PCIe power connector. The card sticks to NVIDIA reference clock speeds of 1503 MHz core, 1683 MHz GPU Boost, and 8.00 GHz (GDDR5-effective) memory. Among its unique features include a 4-pin PWN case-fan header, which lets you sync a fan to the card's temperature, controllable via the included software.

EVGA Cashes in on Tweaked Review Sample Anger

Cashing in on anger against the likes of MSI and ASUS for sending out graphics card review samples with higher out-of-the-box clock speeds than retail cards, EVGA put out a press release, stating that it never indulges in such deceptive practices as putting up "fake" reviews, or sending out cards with "tweaked clock-speeds" to reviewers, adding that with EVGA, "what you see is what you get."

Last week, we unearthed a disturbing pattern of MSI and ASUS sending out graphics card review samples with higher clock speeds out-of-the-box than what consumers get in their retail cards, out-of-the-box. Till date, we have not received any follow-up statements on the matter from either company.

ASUS Announces the GeForce GTX 1080 Turbo

ASUS announced the GeForce GTX 1080 Turbo graphics card (model: TURBO-GTX1080-8G). Positioned below its ROG GTX 1080 STRIX, the card is expected to be priced somewhere between the $599 baseline NVIDIA set for this SKU, and the $679 price at which the company sells the STRIX. Much like the reference-design (Founders Edition) card, the GTX 1080 Turbo features a lateral-flow cooling solution, which pushes hot air out of the case.

The other two things this card has in common with the reference board is clock speeds - 1607 MHz core, 1733 MHz GPU Boost, 10 GHz (GDDR5X-effective) memory; and the need for just a single 8-pin PCIe power connector. The card features an RGB LED lit "ASUS" logo along its top. You also get one 4-pin PWM case-fan header, with which you can drive at least one case fan in sync with the GPU temperatures (the GTX 1080 STRIX features two such headers). The display output layout is similar to the GTX 1080 STRIX, with two each of DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.0b ports.

MSI and ASUS Send VGA Review Samples with Higher Clocks than Retail Cards

MSI and ASUS have been sending us review samples for their graphics cards with higher clock speeds out of the box, than what consumers get out of the box. The cards TechPowerUp has been receiving run at a higher software-defined clock speed profile than what consumers get out of the box. Consumers have access to the higher clock speed profile, too, but only if they install a custom app by the companies, and enable that profile. This, we feel, is not 100% representative of retail cards, and is questionable tactics by the two companies. This BIOS tweaking could also open the door to more elaborate changes like a quieter fan profile or different power management.

MSI's factory-overclocked GeForce GTX 1080 Gaming X graphics card comes with three software-defined clock-speed profiles, beginning with the "Gaming Mode," which is what the card runs at, out of the box, the faster "OC mode," and the slower "Silent mode," which runs the card at reference clock speeds. To select between the modes, you're expected to install the MSI Gaming software from the driver DVD, and use that software to apply clock speeds of your desired mode. Turns out, that while the retail cards (the cards you find in the stores) run in "Gaming mode" out of the box, the review samples MSI has been sending out, run at "OC mode" out of the box. If the OC mode is how the card is intended to be used, then why make OC mode the default for reviewers only, and not your own customers?

ASUS Readying a 144 Hz 4K Ultra HD Monitor

ASUS is readying with what could be the world's first 4K Ultra HD monitor with 144 Hz refresh-rate. The monitor features a 27-inch AHVA panel by AU Optronics. The monitor relies on DisplayPort 1.3 for sufficient bandwidth to push its advertised resolution (3840 x 2160 @ 144 Hz). There's no word on whether the monitor supports adaptive sync technologies such as G-SYNC or FreeSync. DisplayPort 1.3 support can be found on some of the latest GPUs, such as the GeForce GTX 1080 and the Radeon RX 480.

ASUS Unveils ROG XG2 Graphics Enclosure

ASUS unveiled a Republic of Gamers branded XG2 external graphics enclosure, which uses bandwidth from two USB 3.1 ports to power not just a high-end graphics card, but also additional connectivity such as a pair of USB 3.0 type-A ports, and gigabit Ethernet. One source tells us that the USB 3.1 ports are bi-directional, and can be used to increase bandwidth to the enclosure. A single Thunderbolt 3 port provides the same amount of bandwidth, but is known to post higher latencies due to protocol layer.
