Taken from the ancient Roman and Greek word for owl, Strix means the keenest hearing and sharpest eyesight. Strix means feeling your environment so that you detect and react to the slightest movement. Strix means survival on the very edge of instinct. Strix is in your blood, as it is in ours.
Strix R9 280 is the new gaming graphics card from ASUS for those who survive on the very edge of instinct. Equipped with the powerful Radeon™ R9 280 GPU, Strix R9 280 delivers 20%-cooler operation and the ability to play in complete silence! Exclusive DirectCU II technology keeps things super-cool while our new 0dB silent-fan technology means you can enjoy total peace — even when playing games at HD resolutions of up to 1920 x 1080 pixels and with a GPU temperature of up to 65°C! Strix R9 280 also benefits from DIGI+, an exclusive voltage-regulation module (VRM) for incredible stability and reduced noise. You also get GPU Tweak, a brilliant utility that teases maximum performance from the GPU and lets you live stream your enhanced gameplay!
DirectCU II with 0dB Fan Technology
38% cooler. Silent gaming.
Exclusive DirectCU II cooling technology outperforms reference designs with an exclusive 10mm heatpipe that transports 40% more heat away from the GPU — a first for the industry! The design also includes 220%-larger heat-dissipation: this means performance that's 20% cooler and three-times (3X) quieter than reference for ultra-stable hardcore gaming with very low noise. And Strix ups the ante still further with 0dB fan technology that lets you enjoy games like League of Legends® and StarCraft® in complete silence — because the card's thermal design is able to keep GPU temperature below 65°C, so the fan stops completely!
