GPU specs are pretty much the same on the AMD Radeon HD 7970, including 2,048 stream processors, 32 ROPs, 128 TMUs, and 3GB GDDR5 memory running on a 384-bit wide memory interface. The card would be clocked at 950 MHz at the base and 1100 MHz with GPU Boost while the memory would be clocked at an effective clock speed of 1600 MHz or 6 GHz.
The ROG MATRIX R9 280X features a 20-phase DIGI + VRM with Super Alloy power to deliver superior stability and performance for overclockers and enthusiasts alike. Power for the ROG MATRIX R9 280X Platinum is supplied by two 8-pin connectors representing a TDP of 300 W. VGA Hotwire allows for easier DIY voltage modification on the ROG MATRIX R9 280X Platinum, simplifying the process by removing the need complicated and risky welding.
Customers connect dedicated header cables on compatible ROG motherboards to Hotwire VGA connectors on the ROG MATRIX R9 280X Platinum, after which voltage change directly at the hardware level becomes possible through a variety of interfaces. The exclusive TweakIt utility is one such option, revised for ROG MATRIX R9 280X Platinum to offer a wider voltage modulation range, allowing quick changes by simply pressing the + and – keys.
