Turbo, Dual and Strix Gaming
Following Nvidia's official announcement of the mid-range Pascal-based GTX 1060 graphics card, Asus is tempting us with no less than three upcoming custom GTX 1060 graphics cards.
1000 Geforce GTX 1080 at launch
OcUK, the Overclockers UK has sold more than 1000 Radeon RX 480 cards at launch. Although to be fair to Nvidia, the etailer added that they also managed to shift 1000 Geforce GTX 1080 cards on their launch too [so much for the rumour that Nvidia sampled only small volume to the etailers.ed]
Higher clock speeds
MSI has replied to TechPowerUp claims it has caught out MSI it out sending out review graphics cards with higher clock speeds out of the box.
But will not say how budget friendly
The whole press release thing is getting rather silly. ASUS is announcing a non-reference GTX 1080 Turbo card which it says will be cheaper than GTX 1080 Founders Edition but is refusing to say how much cheaper.
Part of Asus' Republic of Gamers lineup
ASUS had plenty of new products at the Computex 2016 show, including its version of the external graphics card box which will be a part of the Republic of Gamers (ROG) lineup, the XG Station 2.
New ultrabook lineup with edge-to-edge display
Earlier today, we mentioned that ASUS held a press event called the “Zenvolution” and announced a variety of next-generation Zen products including smartphones, tablets, ultrabooks, 2-in-1 detachables and the company’s first household assistant robot.
Design mantle has been passed on
With Apple sitting on its hands in the design and innovation stakes, it has been up to others to show the fruity cargo cult what it should be doing. Asus’s new ZenBook 3 does just that.
Founders Edition also available
On Friday, ASUS took the wraps off its latest Geforce 10 series graphics cards based on Nvidia’s Pascal architecture and specifically designed with gamers and hardware enthusiasts in mind. The company’s new ROG Strix Geforce GTX 1080 and Geforce GTX 1080 Founders Edition cards are now available, with the ROG Strix option offering an impressive 1.94GHz Boost clock in OC Mod, trailing ahead most of the competition so far.
Faster than GTX Titan X in 3DMark 11
Asus has dropped a bomb ahead of the Computex 2016 by teasing Nvidia's upcoming mobile Geforce GPU which is actually faster than desktop GTX Titan X.
Am I the only person buying them?
This week I got my paws on an i7 Asus gaming computer with an Nvidia GPU for nearly 600 euro, according to Compal I must have been one of the few as it sees the industry sliding even more into the mire.
