DirectCU II with 10mm Heatpipe
25% Cooler, Three Times Quieter
An exclusive and award-winning cooling technology that puts industry-leading highly-conductive 10mm copper cooling pipes in direct contact with your Matrix card's graphics-processing unit (GPU), dissipating heat with extreme efficiency. Along with high-performance CoolTech fan technology, DirectCU II keeps Matrix up to 25% cooler and three times quieter than reference designs — and that means faster, distraction-free gaming for you!
CoolTech Fan Technology
Hybrid design for multi-directional cooling
CoolTech is an exclusive hybrid and dust-proof fan technology that accelerates heat removal to ensure top-notch graphics performance that's highly stable. The hybrid blade and bearing design, with inner radial blower and outer flower-type blades, provides multi-directional airflow. Every detail has been expertly engineered, including the curvature of the fins, to ensure super-efficient cooling that's whisper-quiet — even when the fan ramps up!
Instant defrost. Say goodbye to cold bugs.
A brand-new ASUS-exclusive technology that'll seriously excite your extreme-overclocking ambitions. This clever feature instantly defrosts your Matrix card's memory during subzero overclocking to ensure sustained stability. With a flip of a switch you can wave goodbye to cold bugs — so you can take subzero overclocking even further!
One-press VBIOS reload
You can overclock with confidence thanks to Safe Mode. One tap of the Clear VBIOS button restores your Matrix's graphics card's default frequencies and voltages, so you can be as experimental as you dare!
DIGI+ VRM with Black Metallic Capacitors and 14-Phase Super Alloy Power
30% less power noise and five times greater durability
Acclaimed DIGI+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) technology delivers 14-phase power and digital voltage regulation, while Super Alloy Power's Japanese-made 10K black-metallic capacitors, concrete-core chokes and hardened MOSFETs all withstand much greater stress and heat. The result is an ultra-stable graphics card that's forged for extreme overclocking. You benefit from loads of headroom for experimental performance tuning without generating distracting whines and buzzes.
ROG Color-Coded Load Indicator
At-a-Glance GPU load level
Matrix is equipped with a gorgeous color-coded LED that changes shade to reflect the GPU's load level. Shining brightly through four resplendent color gradients, it provides a real-time visual guide to performance — and an awesome internal glow!
ROG Edition GPU Tweak
Real-Time intuitive graphics tuning
The ultimate graphics card-tuning utility, offering incredibly precise control over GPU clock frequency, pulse-width modulation (PWM), VRM and even fans. With GPU Tweak you get maximum overclocking potential with great safety and simplicity – an enthusiast's dream comes true!
