*Game codes will be emailed out within 5 working days from Invoice Axial-tech fan design has been enhanced with more fan blades and a new rotation scheme. Dual ball fan bearings can last up to twice as long as sleeve bearing designs. An all-aluminum shroud, reinforced frame, and metal backplate enhance durability. MaxContact heat spreader features a super flat surface for improved thermal transfer. A 144-hour validation program puts cards through a series of stringent tests to ensure compatibility with the latest games. A vented backplate prevents hot air from recirculating through the cooling array. GPU Tweak II provides intuitive performance tweaking, thermal controls, and system monitoring. OC edition TBD MHz GPU boost clock and TBD memory speed in OC mode for outstanding gaming experience. 16GB GDDR6 Memory On-board memory for the best gaming experience & the best resolution. 0dB Technology An advanced controller brings fans to a standstill below 60 Celsius, letting you enjoy light gaming in relative silence. Fresh Shroud A new all-aluminum shroud adds a robust flair to TUF builds. The top-side RGB element can be customized with Armoury Crate to sync up with other ASUS components to enable uniform lighting. 2.9-slot Design The heat spreader draws heat up into heatpipes that carry it through a fin stack that fills most of the card’s large, 2.9-slot footprint. Armored Underside The underside of the card reveals further improvements. Most of the rear is swathed in a protective metal backplate that prominently features a wide vent. The vent allows hot air to escape towards chassis exhaust fans instead of being recycled back into the GPU cooler. A GPU bracket provides extra stability to the critical connection between die and heat spreader. Stainless steel is used for the I/O bracket to protect ports and provide a more secure mount. And a conveniently placed Dual Bios switch allows customization of the card’s default performance profile without software. Axial-tech Upgrades The blade count has been increased on all three fans, with 13 on the center fan and 11 on the auxiliary fans. The barrier ring on the side fans has been slimmed down to allow for more lateral intake and to provide better airflow through the cooling array. The center fan’s extra blades and full-height ring provide boosted static pressure to blast air directly onto the GPU heat spreader. TUF Components Robust military-grade capacitors were selected for the card’s power design. They and other components are soldered to the PCB using our Auto-Extreme automated manufacturing process. Precise joints and the elimination of human error ensures each graphics card meets our rigorous specifications. To ensure flawless performance when it counts, the cards are subjected to a grueling 144-hour validation trial.
