ASUS STRIX 480 BREAKDOWN

STRIX GPU COOLING SYSTEM

DirectCU III GPU Cooling Tech

The RX 480 will achieve up to 30% extra cooling performance when gaming thanks to the exclusive DirectCU III cooling technology. This tech featured on the RX 480 direct-GPU contact heat-pipes that will transport more heat away from the GPU and out-perform the reference designs.

*Image for illustration only. Actual design may vary.

ENHANCED RX480 COOLING

Triple Wing-Blade GPU Cooling

DirectCU III features triple 0dB fans engineered with a patented wing-blade design that delivers maximum air flow and improved 105% static pressure over the heat sink, while operating at 3X quieter volumes than reference cards. The 0dB fans also let you enjoy games in complete silence and make DirectCU III the coolest and quietest graphics card in the market.

ASUS GPU FAN CONNECTIONS

GPU Controlled Fan Headers

When gaming it is commonly found that GPU temperatures are higher than that of the CPU, due to chassis fans usually referencing CPU temps only - resulting in inefficient cooling. The Strix 480 graphics card features two 4-pin GPU controlled headers that can be connected to system fans for targeted cooling on your RX480.

STRIX 480 EMBEDDED LED

ASUS 480 Aura RGB Lighting

ASUS Strix 480 features Aura RGB Lighting on the shroud, these Strix graphics cards are capable of displaying millions of colors in six different effects. Experience a personalized gaming system with RX 480.

GPU DURABILITY & EFFICIENCY

A More Reliable Radeon RX 480

This 480 series, like various other ASUS boards, has had premium alloy components intergrated into their graphics card designs reinforcing the overall reliability. Super Alloy Power II components greatly enhance the Strix 480 efficiency, reduce power loss and achieve thermal levels that are approximately 50% cooler than previous designs.

ASUS GPU TWEAK II

Control and Track GTX 1060 Performance

Redesigned with an intuitive, all-new UI, GPU Tweak II makes graphics cards overclocking easier and more visual than ever, while still retaining advanced options for seasoned overclockers. With one click, the new Gaming Booster function maximizes system performance by removing redundant processes and allocating all available resources automatically.

SMOOTH GPU GAMING GRAPHICS

Radeon 480 Freesync Technology

Every PC gamer knows how incredibly smooth gaming can be at a steady 60+ FPS. Now you can have that low-latency experience at virtually any framerate with AMD FreeSync embedded into this graphics card. The RX 480 features FreeSync tech that will free your games and their cinematics of screen tearing and help minimize stuttering - enhancing the performance of your GPU.

SMOOTH GPU GAMING GRAPHICS

Premium Quality and The Best Reliability

ASUS graphics cards are produced using Auto-Extreme technology, an industry-first 100% automated production process, and feature premium Super Alloy Power II components that enhance efficiency, reduce power loss, decrease component buzzing under load, and lower thermal temperatures for unsurpassed quality and reliability.

It's been a good start to the year for PC enthusiasts. Intel has unleashed the deca-core Core i7-6950X and Nvidia has served up a suitable partner in the form of the high-end GeForce GTX 1080. Handy, if you happen to have thousands of pounds to pour into your next PC, but for everyone else a more mainstream solution is needed to sate our appetites.
