1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Packaged well.

Cons: The unit wouldn't get power, couldn't even get an image to set up the BIOs. Even verified it with an AUSU's tech guy on the phone who said it sounded like a short and recommended a return.

This card ruined a otherwise very successful custom build of a $2,500 computer I saved 8 months for.

Other Thoughts: I was even running it on a ASUS motherboard, the Rampage II.

1 out of 5 eggsStill no Support!

Pros: Card itself still works after a couple months

Cons: No software support what so ever! Asus site is dead for the Matrix as far as any activity. iTracker is buggy and does not maintain profiles. No fix for flawed BIOS flash that does not support fan speed changes

Other Thoughts: This is my 2nd review now after a couple of months of usage and where is your support ASUS???!!! I still can't flash the fan speeds into the BIOS which means the high overclocks are useless without the proper cooling! I could have just bought the BFG maxed overclock edition. Buying this ASUS card for the software support was a mistake! It doesn't work as advertised and ASUS does NOTHING to fix this. Never again!

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

We are sorry for this inconvenience. Please contact our Technical Support Department at so that we may get more details about your system configuration and assist you in resolving these issues you are experiencing.

Best Regards,

ASUS Support Team

3 out of 5 eggsGood Clocks, Software, BIOS flash Sucks

Pros: The card seems to clock stable up to 739/1615/2656 at 1200mV core and 2150mV memory. That's based on a 3dmark06 run, a few minutes in Furmark, and some flying in FSX. But would need to test more to make sure. I put in lower settings for actual use (735/1585/2599) in games & apps.

Cons: The itracker2 (ver 1.1) software sucks and the BIOS flash does NOT set the fan control properly...basically ignores the input settings. The clocks seemed to flash OK (I used lower settings than mentioned above) but when the itracker software is opened upon reboot, the settings don't register and I have to select the profile and activate it to get the settings the stupid bios flash should have done. Also the software won't hold/run any profile properly other than profile 1. So overall I think the software sucks and the BIOS flash sucks too.

Other Thoughts: I bought the card for the heavy duty parts, much better cooler, and the ability to flash the bios once I determined the highest stable clocks. 2 out of three I got. I generously give this 3 eggs. I hope ASUS fixes this.

4 out of 5 eggswow


Allows you to change/tweak the memory on ur graphics card.
ok this goes beyond just speeding up ur ram, its like when u mess with the tims on ur ram. For a overclocker as my self i see this as a Big plus.

There is a button on the card that looked like a fiber optic out, and its not. Its so u can reset the card to default after a overclocker.

Cons: costly for a 1gig card :(

Other Thoughts: i dont own this card, but i tell u what, when i get the cash iam leaving evga behind, this is big to me as i love to have full control and cant believe that it took this long for options like this
