Reshape your gaming future: ASUS Exclusive Innovation

DirectCU II with SSU architecture: 20% cooler, 3X quieter

ASUS graphics card engineering leads the industry once again with the introduction of DirectCU II SSU thermal design. Comprising two "S" and one "U" shapes, the new heatpipes are precision shaped for optimal efficiency and heat transference. They are also nickel-plated to minimize oxidization, with their mid-section now placed directly over the GPU die. This design shortens heat transfer travel to lower thermal resistance and create bi-directional flow for up to twice the cooling capacity in the same space as that required by existing graphics card cooler designs. High-conductivity copper used in heatpipe formulation creates tube-like vapor chambers, moving heat to a large aluminum heatsink that features extended fins for multiple points of dissipation. The assembly is further chilled by two high performance but carefully-tuned and sound-dampened fans for faster and quieter cooling.

TOP-Selected 1120 MHz core

1120 MHz engine clock for better performance and outstanding gaming experience

DIGI+ VRM with Super Alloy Power

30% less power noise and 2.5X greater durability. Acclaimed DIGI+ VRM has been applied via a 8-phase power design that uses digital voltage regulators to minimize power noise by 30%, enhance power efficiency by 15%, widen voltage modulation tolerance, and improve overall stability and longevity by 2.5 times over reference.

5* Value for money & plays any game in high to ultra
Reviewed by Russell on 09/05/2014
I got this for my first build and it has been a dream to install & the GPU Tweak is very good for monitoring the card, plays any game so far in high to ultra settings in 1080p,
(only C.O.D Ghosts in 720p) on a 40" tv very pleased!
am now considering getting another to crossfire just to be a bit more future prof, but not in any rush as it is running so well as is,

Best Price on Dads Thank you very much got
3* Great when it works, a pain when it doesn't
Reviewed by Stevie on 22/02/2014
First of all, this is a really good card. It looks great, has a big heatsink to make sure runs very cool 'n' quiet (which did make it a bit of a tight squeeze in my case), and performs like a beast. It can run practically any game at 1080p/60fps at max or very high settings and still not break sweat. Given its price, it's a brilliant card and I would otherwise recommend it in a heartbeat.

Unfortunately, it hasn't been plain sailing with it. The R9 line in general seems to be fraught with problems at the minute, and this card is no different. Sometimes the GPU will sit there at full load in a game, even when the game isn't that demanding, and run at a very low FPS indeed. If I reboot the machine, everything starts working fine. Driver and VBIOS updates haven't helped, and Asus are none the wiser what's wrong so have told me to RMA it. Such a shame it's ended like this, as when the card is working it's brilliant.
