After just a little teasing ASUS has today opened the flood gates and published over a dozen images depicting its newest ROG Series graphics cards, the MATRIX R9290X (based on the Radeon R9 290X) and the MATRIX GTX780TI (GeForce GTX 780 Ti).

Both of ASUS' cards make use of a custom PCB and come equipped with a dual-slot cooler featuring two fans (one of which is a CoolTech fan), and a black nickel-plated heatsink boasting five direct contact copper heatpipes. The upcoming MATRIX models also have dual 8-pin power connectors, a 14-phase DIGI+ VRM, a backplate, dual-DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort outputs, and OC-oriented additions like the LN2 Mode Switch.ASUS hasn't revealed the cards' clocks or prices but says more info is 'coming soon'.

They both look really slick! Everyone was hoping it'd be a new 780x2 or 290X x2 though (at least I was!). I'm glad they're sticking with a two slot cooler. biggrin.gif

Not a fan of how lopsided the shroud is. Still a pretty decent looking design. Hope they can compete with the classy after the tepid dcuii performance

That looks amazing. How many other GPUs have a black heatsink?
