ASUS , world-wide leader in graphics cards, together with graphics provider, Nvidia, held two Gamers’ Gatherings last March 19 and 21, respectively in Manila and Cebu, showcasing their latest graphics cards and ASUS motherboards to powerusers, media, and gamers. Highlighted during the event was the newly launched Nvidia GeForce GTX 960’s performance and benefits in terms of efficiency and power consumption. ASUS Gamer series motherboards were also available on display for users to test various ASUS-exclusive motherboard features.
ASUS Strix GTX 960 – Primed for Gaming Perfection
Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 960, based on their new Maxwell architecture, is a new graphics solution capable of playing recent games at 1080p resolution without compromise. The card also stands as a cost-efficient solution for gamers that plan on upgrading their systems.
ASUS’ offering of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 is a class of its own. Overclocked out of the box, the ASUS Strix GTX 960 DirectCU II OC has better performance and speed over the reference design. Aside from its unparalleled power, the Strix GTX 960 also comes with the ASUS-exclusive DirectCU II cooling technology, benefitting the user with near-silent operation while being 30% cooler.
Part of the Strix series graphics cards’ charms is the 0dB Fan Technology. Playing light games and applications warrant no additional cooling from the fans, thus making the system quieter and silent.
The ASUS GTX 960 DirectCU II OC comes with the ASUS GPU Tweak and an Xplit Premium account, worth about $100 for one year.
Pure Gaming Fun with ASUS Gamer Motherboards
ASUS Gamer motherboards are practical and feature-filled foundations for today’s gaming PCs. Packing features such as SupremeFX, GameFirst II, and Gamer’s Guardian, ASUS Gamer motherboards are more than just true gaming companions.
SupremeFX, a solution previously exclusive to ROG motherboards, come with ASUS Gamer motherboards for high-quality reproduction of audio. This board-based design translates to a plethora of soft applications such as the ASUS Sonic Radar.

Gamers are also known for pushing and using hardware for extended periods of time. With that in mind, ASUS included a number of solutions to bolster Gamer motherboards’ durability and longevity. Gamer’s Guardian acts as an overall solution with its above-standard 10K capacitors, 72-hour salt spray for back I/O rust resistance, and DIGI+ VRM for accurate voltage control.
