ROG Striker GTX 760 Platinum 4GB Has Hand-Picked GPU

Asus has announced its GTX Striker 760 Platinum graphics card, which is probably one of the most high-end GTX 760 implementations on the market. The card, as indicated, is based on the GTX 760 design, but beyond the GPU, there isn't much that it has in common with the reference design. It has an alternate PCB design, a different cooler, along with different clock speeds, as well as double the graphics memory.

The clock speeds of the unit are set at 1085 MHz base with a boost frequency of 1150 MHz. The 4 GB of GDDR5 memory runs at an effective speed of 6.0 GHz over a memory interface that's 256-bits wide. The GPUs on the platinum cards have been hand-picked for stability and overclockability.

There is also a standard (non-Platinum) version of the card that features lower GPU clocks. This card has a base frequency of 980 MHz with a boost frequency of 1033 MHz. These are reference frequencies.

Display outputs are taken care of by two DVI ports, a single HDMI port, along with a DisplayPort 1.2 connector. Powering the graphics card itself is a combination of a six–pin and eight-pin set of PCIe power connectors.

No exact word on pricing yet, though we can expect it to cost about $300. It should be coming to shelves this month still.

    handpicked? So they went out into the GPU orchard and picked one of these off a GTX tree?

    Great, another fancy 760. I'll stick with the faster GTX 770 for 20$ more.

    Even if it's handpicked, it's still a weak GPU
