ASUS Launches R9 200, R7 200 Series, Matrix R9 280X Graphics Cards

ASUS today launched multiple graphics cards powered by the latest AMD Radeon series GPUs.

Firstly, there are R7 250 and R7 240 cards featuring ASUS' proprietary Super Alloy Power components for stability, dust-proof fans for improved card lifespan and GPU Tweak tuning software. R7 240 has 730MHz GPU core speed and the R7 250 is clocked at 1000MHz. Both cards have been fully tested for compatibility with Windows 8.1.



Secondly, there are R9 200 and R7 200 Series DirectCU II graphics cards: R9 280X, R9 270X, and R7 260X, featuring ASUS' DirectCU II cooling, DIGI+ voltage-regulator modules for stable power supply and GPU Tweak tuning software. The R9 280X, R9 270X, and R7 260X are all factory-overclocked to the core speeds of 1070MHz, 1120MHz, and 1188MHz. R9 280X, R9 270X, and R7 260X also include GPU Tweak Streaming, an online-streaming tool that lets users share on-screen action over the Internet.



Lastly, there are Matrix R9 280X Platinum edition and Matrix R9 280X standard edition from ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG), two new graphics cards powered by the latest AMD Radeon R9 280X GPU. The new Matrix R9 280X graphics cards feature copper-based thermal design for faster performance at lower temperatures, VGA Hotwire connections for voltage control, DIGI+ voltage-regulator modules for smooth and stable power and GPU Tweak tuning software. R9 280X's GPU is clocked at 1000MHz, while that of R9 280X Platinum is cranked up to 1100MHz, 100MHz higher than reference.



Matrix R9 280X cards also include an overclocking 'safe mode' that can be used to quickly restore default settings. As well, an illuminated Matrix logo allows users to gauge card's loading at a glance as the lamp changes color to indicate the current load level. The Matrix R9 280X cards also include GPU Tweak Streaming, an online-streaming tool that lets users share on-screen action over the Internet.
