ASUS R9 280X Matrix Platinum Review

For our overclocking tests today we used the latest version of MSI Afterburner as well as the proprietary ASUS ROG Edition GPU Tweak software. Both software packages delivered the same final results.

The Asus R9 280X Matrix Platinum is shipped in a high state of overclock, but we managed to get another 88mhz from the core before we ran into problems. We experimented with a lot of voltage settings in both software packages and came to the same conclusion that this was pretty much as good as we would get on air cooling.

  1. a 3 slot cooler seems insane for basically what is a 7970. I like the card overall, but in crossfire I would have no motherboard visible and the cards would be butting against each other.

  2. I would have bought this one if the price was £280 and it has a two slot cooler. three slot coolers just take up too much room

  3. Zardon, any chance you can throw up the 7970 Matrix Platinum (http://www.kitguru.net/components/graphic-cards/zardon/asus-matrix-hd7970-platinum-graphics-card-review) up there in tests? Probably the best apples-to-apples comparison over ASUS’ flagship model between these two generations.

  4. Isnt Vapor-X running @ 950 Mhz while the Matrix Platinum running 1100 Mhz. Wouldnt that give a fair bump in the degrees? (enough to justify the 11c higher in gaming)

  5. My bad i see the site ive been looking at only displays base clock at 950, the boost clock is 1070. Nevermind then 🙂
