Asus Striker GTX 760 Platinum Review Conclusion

The Asus Striker GTX 760 Platinum 4GB is a high end mid-range graphics card and the fully featured GTX 760 I’ve seen. Most of you might agree with me, while some might not, the new design and look is great compared to its predecessors and competitors. It has an improved DirectCU II cooler with CoolTech fan and a larger heatsink, providing quite operation even at full load. The LED load indicator and the lighting effects on the PCB add on its aesthetics as well. This is the first time I saw a lighting effect on a graphics card’s PCB. We have seen it in motherboards, but this is the first in a graphics card as far as I know.

Out of the box, the Striker features stable factory overclocked settings already and bumping the memory to 4GB is also a plus factor as well. I am impressed with its overall performance and it’s probably the best performing GTX 760 on the market. But I am having a difficulty evaluating the Striker. Why? The card itself looks and performs fantastic, no questions ask; and based on my experience with the card for several weeks, I would opt for this card than any other mid-range graphics card. But price is always a major factor in the decision making.

If the Striker GTX 760 is indeed priced somewhere at $300 USD, which is already very near the price of an Asus GTX 770 DirectCU II OC, then you have to decide whether you would choose looks over performance. Even though the Striker has impressive performance, the GTX 770 DirectCU II OC still performs better than the Striker. Just add 9 bucks and you already have an Asus GTX 770.

In the end, it all comes down to personal preference. Would you rather have a kickass looking Striker GTX 760 Platinum than a better performing GTX 770, or the other way around? Either way, I think it’s still a win-win situation. I couldn’t think of any cons about this product so far. With that said, the Asus ROG Striker GTX 760 Platinum 4GB is, overall, a great mid-range graphics card and deserves The PC Enthusiast’s Highly Recommended Award.

I love computers since I was a kid. I’m always fascinated with new technology, especially in the PC world. Many years ago, I was curious if the reviews I read were true and real. So, why not test them myself and share my first-hand experience? And thus, here we are. Thanks for reading!

  1. Decided on a pair of these in SLI rather then the better performing 770s. Decided the 4gB VRAM was more important for my surround gaming. Sexy cards though..

    Average VRM cooling
