ASUS GTX980 Ti Matrix SLI Review



The only thing better than one GTX980Ti is a pair in SLI. We look at the latest entrant into the ROG range, the ASUS GTX980Ti Matrix.

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.

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

No overclock dude, I had very little time the single test was actually a bonus.

I may go back and do a single card balls to the wall set of tests but right now I sadly just dont have time.

The fact at stock it does THAT well just goes to show how good it is for most end users to fit and forget though.

Yeah it is very special for typical users. Amazing to see it did the same in an SLI setup too vs. Strix at stock. A Classified/Lightning/Matrix/HOF flagship round-up would make a very special video, got to be an audience for that one despite how much the manufacturers will enjoy it!

I like the new color scheme on these cards. It reminds me a little of the Sapphire 280X OC Toxic GPU that I have.


Their performance is smokin' hot too.
These seem to be well worth the money and a pair of them would be great to have.

Thanks for the review.
