Asus ROG Matrix R9 280X Platinum breaks cover

Written by Slobodan Simic

 

Revised HD 7970 Matrix

Videocardz.com managed to snag some pictures of the rumored Asus ROG Matrix R9 280X platinum graphics cards that will feature quite a decent factory overclock, top of the line cooler as well as high-quality 20-phase Digi+ VRM.

Since it is practically revised Asus' HD 7970 Matrix, since the R9 280X is still based on the Tahiti GPU, the new Asus ROG R9 280X Platinum also features all the bells and whistles seen on the previous series, including TweakIT, ProbeIT, fan switch and dual BIOS features as well as the impressive triple-slot dual fan cooler.

The card should end up with 950MHz base, 1100MHz Boost GPU clocks and pack 3GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 6GHz and paired up with a 384-bit memory interface.

Most partners will come up with their own custom designed versions of the R9 280X graphics card and Asus' ROG R9 280X Matrix will certainly face some stiff competition, but in any case, it will definitely be one of the "premium" R9 280X graphics cards on the market.
