The Evolution of ROG
Now in its 10th year, the Republic of Gamers (ROG) celebrates the ever-evolving collaboration between world-class R&D, insatiable enthusiasts and devoted gamers needed to embrace (and tame) the bleeding edge and is ready to keep outrunning technology for ten more.
Where Style Meets Performance
Featuring Aura RGB Lighting on both the shroud and backplate, ROG Strix graphics cards are capable of displaying millions of colors and up to six different effects for the perfect light show.
Allowing for targeted supplemental cooling, ASUS FanConnect provides dual 4-pin PWM GPU-controlled headers.
Game Cool. Play Silent.
Exclusive DirectCU III cooling technology features a trio of 0dB fans and direct-GPU contact heat-pipes that transport more heat away from the GPU and outperforms reference designs, achieving up to 30% cooler and 3X quieter operation.
ASUS engineers have integrated premium components into their graphics card designs to reinforce overall reliability. Super Alloy Power II components greatly enhance efficiency, reduce power loss, provide 2X reduced component buzzing while under full load, and achieve thermal levels that are approximately 50% cooler than previous designs.
Game Your Way
Redesigned with an intuitive, all-new UI, GPU Tweak II makes 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. XSplit Gamecaster lets you easily stream or record your gameplay right from a convenient, in-game overlay.
ASUS Auto Extreme Technology
The ASUS exclusive Auto Extreme component assembly process removes the variables of a human production line and replaces it with the precision of a fully automated assembly system. The resulting graphics cards are more reliable than hand built alternatives.
- Increases component reliability, as well as longevity from the get-go of manufacturing.
- No harsh chemicals and 50% less power usage.

Top customer reviews
This particular card has some very nice bells and whistles. Keep in mind the fans don't spin at all while the GPU is idle, so it does run a bit hotter than EVGA's cards, but not to where it would cause issues. Actually it's able to stay around 40-45C while doing this, and it'll significantly cut back on dust build-up as well. There are 2 PWM fan headers on the side of the card. I have my front intake fans hooked up to those so they don't spin either until the GPU is under load, overall making my PC near-silent at idle (except for my HDD). You can use GPU Tweak II to manually set fan speed curves, but the automatic ones cool the card just fine, and GPU Tweak II is a poorly-programmed mess of bugs so I don't recommend it.
The Aura RGB lighting looks great, but for two problems. One, there are two bright white LED's on the power connectors (6pin and 8pin) that are always white. Really detracts from the look. Second, the Aura software itself, like GPUTweak is riddled with bugs. It actually caused a BSOD on login when I first installed it, and I had to do a system restore. Then, it took me a couple tries to actually get it to stay on the right color (My motherboard is Aura RGB too, so they're synced up.)
My advice: Tape over the white LED's with electrical tape (it holds up to the heat), set your LED's to the color you want and don't mess with the software again unless you have to.
One more quick note: The MSRP of this model is $650. Don't pay more than that for it. Let the scalpers die out.
I have attached pictures of my userbenchmark test of this card, and also gta v benchmark were you can see it was constant at 60fps the whole time. My settings are on very high I just left it as default I think the graphics are good enough don’t need to play with them..
Fills up space in your computer (it’s a big card)
Stays very cool (I have a corsair 760t case)
Overprices right now because idiots are trying to make money
Gets kind of loud sometimes but just pump up your volume and you are good!
I run all my games on a 4K UHD monitor, and I use the highest settings. I have never seen a visible lag, or pixilation, it is just flawless. As for the virtual reality, it is amazing, with this card there is no comprehensible lag between motion and update on the display. It is so incredibly immersive. I have to assume this card has a lot to do with just how great this experience is. If you are considering getting the Titan, or this, get THIS. If you ever need a little boost then you buy a second 1080, and put it in SLI mode. The two 1080's are still cheaper than the Titan, and I guarantee you that this is the only card you will need for a while. With DDR4 memory, 4Ghz CPU, M.2 HDD, and this card there is nothing this machine cannot do. You can enable every setting, to the max, 4K resolution, and this card just happily takes it. The STRIX supports overclocking via their app, so you can squeeze out a little more if you need it, but I seriously doubt you will need if for quite a while.
I have played with the app, it lets you overclock as you want, and it lets you set the fan thresholds, and colors, etc. I tried overclocking a bit, and it worked just fine, but I haven't found a game that it couldn't handle without overclocking, so I don't bother to actually use it. You can create different profiles, so you can easily turn on or off the overclocking. I set the fan to be quiet, but I don't set it at the 0db setting. I prefer a little fan noise and keeping my card nice and cool. However, in the case that I have I cannot hear the fan, so it really doesn't matter.
I set the colors to match the motherboard, case, keyboard and mouse. Now my computer looks like a work of art. It is something I display proudly as it is just so friggin cool.
The specs speak for themselves. 8GB of VRAM is impressive, especially that it is GDDR5, running at 1,825Mhz at 256-bits in width. That is a sick memory throughput. The new Titan is the only card that I know of that can beat this one in compute power, but it is not as good for gaming as this. The number of CUDA cores is staggering, something like 300+. This video card is a true supercomputer in and of itself. But, it plays games like they're nothing. It just works, on the highest setting, at 4K resolution, or in Vive VR, and it doesn't even get hot. It usually runs like 40-50C at the most when playing the most taxing games. Keeping it nice and cool will ensure a long life span.
I don't know what else I can say. If you want to play the newest and best games, this is the card for you. Whether you are a true overclocker, or just want to drop in the card and forget it, this is the card for you. If you have a fancy machine, with LED lighting, and an open side panel, this is the card for you. I had originally bought the reference model of the 1080, but I changed to the ROG version for the better fans, and more sturdy heat sink.
Another great feature is the number of video ports this has. It has 2 UHD HDMI ports, two full sized display port ports and a DVI port. I use one of the DP with my HTC Vive, and one of the HDMI with my Samsung 28" 4K UHD monitor.
Pros: Incredible performance, as good or better than 2 of the next best cards. Supports SLI for 2 or three cards. Has 8GB of GDDR5 memory, and over 300 CUDA core. Plays the newest games in 4K UHD with >60fps and never lags or stutters. 2 HDMI and one DP for multiple monitors, or VR. Works perfect with HTC Vive.
Cons: It is a bit pricey. But, when you figure you would need to of the next best card to compete, it is really not that bad.
