Default Asus Matrix GTX285 Graphics Card Review

The majority of GeForce GTX 285 cards are nothing but copies of the reference sample. To be exact, they are manufactured at contracted facilities for Nvidia and then sent to Nvidia’s partners for distribution. The partners do not contribute much to the manufacturing process. They usually limit themselves to changing the sticker on the cooler’s casing and, occasionally, pre-overclocking the card (e.g. the EVGA GeForce GTX 285 SSC). It doesn’t make the cards any worse, especially as the common manufacturing source means a tougher quality assurance control, but the hardware reviewer can hardly be interested in such uniform products.

Therefore, it is indeed a pleasure to meet an original exception such as the ASUS Matrix GTX285 that we are going to discuss today. The Matrix series is targeted by ASUS at dedicated gamers and overclocking enthusiasts. This series features custom-designed PCBs and unique cooling systems as well as a lot of overclocking and fine-tuning features (like the option of adjusting the voltage of the GPU and memory). At the moment the Matrix GTX285 is the senior and highest-performance model in the ASUS Matrix series. Let’s have a closer look at it.
