Description

MATRIX-R9280X-P-3GD5: ASUS ROG MATRIX R9 280X:ultimate overclocking and gaming power

  • TOP-selected 1100MHz cores run 175MHz higher than reference for smoother gameplay.
  • VGA Hotwire connects card and ROG board voltage regulators for accurate and solder-free hardware-level voltage control.
  • TweakIt offers real-time fingertip-easy hardware level voltage adjustment by simply pressing the + and - buttons.
  • Acclaimed DIGI+ VRM joins superior quality 20-phase Super Alloy Power to drive precise digital control for enhanced performance, reliability, and card longevity.
  • ROG GPU Tweak suite offers the world's first graphics overclocking tool with loadline calibration and VRM overclocking.

ASUS Exclusive Innovation

VGA Hotwire: Quick hardware-level voltage tuning

DIY modification of voltages on MATRIX R9 280X becomes simple by removing the need for complicated and risky soldering. Just connect wires from dedicated headers on compatible ROG motherboards to VGA Hotwire connectors on MATRIX R9 280X, after which you can change voltages directly on the hardware level through the ASUS UEFI BIOS or via the Windows-based Ai Suite II.

TweakIt: Instant voltage adjustment

TweakIt provides flexible overclocking control even when gaming or running benchmarks! The + and - buttons put overvolting adjustments at your fingertips, with more power translating into the faster and smoother gaming you crave and the winning edge you require for intense multiplayer and competitive benchmarking.

Turbo Fan Activator: One-press 100% fan speed

Instantly trigger the dual 100mm fans to 100% speed regardless of driver settings. This proves very useful in extreme overclocking and other heavy workload scenarios where rapid heat evacuation and max cooling are a must.

Safe Mode: One-press VBIOS reload

The Safe Mode button resets the graphics card back to default frequencies and BIOS settings. This is a very useful feature for hardware enthusiasts and experimental tuning - think of it like the motherboard's clear CMOS function.

DIGI+ VRM with 20-phase Super Alloy Power: Precise digital control enhances performance, reliability, and card longevity

MATRIX R9 280X is built with carefully-designed massive 20-phase power delivery, unmatched by any other graphics card for the ultimate in performance and spectacular power delivery. This ensures ample room for experimental performance tuning, as its DIGI+ VRM digital voltage regulation design augments precision overclocking capabilities, which are further supported by the use of hardened Super Alloy Power capacitors, chokes, and MOSFETs. These components are forged under extreme pressure and temperatures to increase reliability, power output, and overall card lifespan while eliminating bothersome choke buzzing noise, unlike much tamer reference cards. All these and more enable the absolute best in overclocking potential and experience.

DirectCU II: 20% cooler and 3X* quieter

ASUS DirectCU thermal design utilizes all-copper heatpipes so heat is removed efficiently. DirectCU II generates 6X greater airflow yet performs 3X quieter than reference in idle and full load thanks to dual 100mm sound-dampening fans. *Equivalent to 14dB

MATRIX LED Load Indicator: GPU loading at-a-glance

A color-coded LED MATRIX indicator at the back of the ROG MATRIX graphics card gives real time and easy-to-understand visual display of the current GPU workload, with colors changing dynamically depending your card's work load.

GPU Tweak: The world's first graphics overclocking tool with loadline calibration and VRM overclocking.

Easily fine-tune core and memory clocks, voltages, and fan settings intuitively via sliders or manual value entry. MATRIX R9 280X arrives with a new ROG edition of GPU Tweak, which adds detailed GPU loadline calibration and VRM frequency tuning, allowing for the most extensive control and adjustment parameters for maximum overclocking potential.
