Asus Strix GTX 960 Review-16

In testing the Asus STRIX GTX 960 OC, I tested it with a Gigabyte Z97X Gaming G1 WiFi BK motherboard powered with an Intel Core i7-4770K. The CPU is running at 3.9GHz during the said test and during gaming sessions. Below are the rest of the system specs and memory configurations:

Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z97X Gaming G1 WiFi BK
Processor: Intel Core i7-4770K @ 3.9GHz
CPU Cooler: DeepCool Captain 360
Memory: KLEVV Genuine 8GB DDR3-2666
Graphics card: Asus STRIX GTX 960 OC
Storage Drive: Samsung 850 Pro 256GB
Power Supply: Seasonic 1050W Platinum
Chassis: DimasTech Bench Table Easy V3.0

Below is a GPU-Z screenshot of the said graphics card:

Aside from the mentioned specifications above and the driver version you see from the GPUZ screenshot, all games where running on 1080p resolution with V-Sync turned off, and graphics quality was at their maximum possible setting. Except for Shadow of Mordor, where a certain graphics option was toned down since the graphics card has only 2GB of memory.

NOTE: The other graphics cards included in the graphs below were not tested at the same time I tested and benchmark the Asus STRIX GTX 960. They were tested previously using different driver versions and with a slightly different hardware setup.

For synthetic benchmarking, I used some the most popular benchmarking tools: 3DMark (Sky Diver and Fire Strike) and Unigine Valley and Heaven. I compared the STRIX GTX 960 with the Asus STRIX 750 Ti, Asus STRIKER GTX 760, Club 3D R9 285 royalQueen and Zotac GTX 970 Extreme AMP Core Edition. You can check out more details of their respective performance by visiting their respective reviews.

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!
