Asus has introduced a new kickass looking mid-range graphics card – the Asus ROG Striker GTX 760 Platinum (ROG STRIKER-GTX760-P-4GD5), featuring a 4GB memory, redesigned and top tier looking DirectCU II shroud, higher clock speeds and offers a noticeable improvement compared to the reference NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760. Comparing it with its predecessor, the Asus GTX 760 DirectCU II OC, it also offers a tad improvement in gaming performance and obviously offers better aesthetics. Let’s get to know more about the Striker GTX 760 Platinum in my review below.

Asus Striker GTX 760 Platinum Review

The ASUS ROG Striker GTX 760 Platinum is the most highend, premium looking and fully featured GTX 760 I have seen so far. It features a redesigned DirectCU II cooler shroud, which I admit is a lot better looking than the previous GTX 760 DirectCU II model. Not only did Asus change the shroud’s design but they also used a better performing CoolTech Fan. In addition to the new shroud and fan, it also has an aluminum backplate for additional support. Its shroud bears the Republic of Gamers logo with backlight LED that changes color according to the GPU’s load level.

Under the hood, the Striker GTX 760 Platinum features a DIGI+ VRM with 8 Phase Super Power Alloy offering 30% less power noise and 5x greater durability. Asus used Japanese-made Nichicon GT-series 10K Black Metallic capacitors, concrete-core chokes, hardened MOSFETs and high quality POSCAP that would enable the card to endure greater stress and heat; thus resulting to a more stable graphics card even in extreme overclocking conditions.

I posted an article before detailing the Striker GTX 760 Platinum’s features, you can visit that page if you want to. Now, let’s take a look at its specifications and have a closer look at the card, then let’s see how well does this card perform.

But it also requires more power for this card to operate properly compared to the other two.
