Axial-tech fans feature a smaller hub that facilitates longer blades and
a barrier ring to increase downward air pressure.
To eliminate unnecessary noise, a stop mode halts all fans when the GPU
temp falls below 50 degrees and power consumption is low.
Dual Ball Fan Bearings
Different bearing types have unique pros and cons. Ball bearings excel
at durability and can last up to twice as long as sleeve bearing designs.
Do you prioritize low core temps or low noise levels? Performance mode
will let the fans spin up to keep the card running cool all the time.
Quiet mode keeps the same power target and top-end settings, but offers
a less aggressive fan curve for quieter operation at medium temps. For
even more customization and control, check out our GPU Tweak III
A carefully designed shroud, heatsink, and heatpipe layout allows the
two Axial-tech fans to leverage chassis side-panel ventilation and
deliver thermal performance that belies the cards size.
Auto-Extreme Technology is an automated manufacturing process that sets
new standards in the industry by allowing all soldering to be completed
in a single pass. This reduces thermal strain on components and avoids
the use of harsh cleaning chemicals, resulting in less environmental
impact, lower manufacturing power consumption, and a more reliable
The PCB is reinforced by an aluminum backplate that adds structural
rigidity, helping to prevent flex and protect components and trace
pathways from damage. The rear features a wide vent that allows hot air
to escape towards chassis exhaust fans instead of being recycled back
into the GPU cooler.
Stainless Steel Bracket
The mounting bracket of the Dual has been beefed up with 304 Stainless
Steel thats harder and more resistant to corrosion.
GPU TWEAK III
The ASUS GPU Tweak
III utility takes graphics card tuning to the next level. It allows you
to tweak critical parameters including GPU core clocks, memory
frequency, and voltage settings, with the option to monitor everything
in real-time through a customizable on-screen display. Advanced fan
control is also included along with many more features to help you get
the most out of your graphics card.
