    News - ASUS announces Strix GTX 750 Ti OC with semi-passive technology

    The Strix range can run with the fans turned off during 'light gaming' or similar activity.

    Nothing new here. Asus them selves as well as every other vendor has had heat based variable speed coolers for years #facepalm

    Sure, but only Asus has a heat based variable speed cooler which starts at zero RPM. Which more vendors should be doing, really, because nVidia's 700 series idles really really well. Good enough for passive cooling.

    This is pretty useful for a mini pc for video and light-ish gaming. Should be silent for video and will ramp up for games.

    I suspect this will become more commonplace and I don't understand the technical reasons why this isn't the case already but it's useful. SOme Corsair PSUs do this, would be nice if CPU could as well. Silent at idle is an achievable goal

    This would be a welcome addition but I don't think this would be achievable on a stock heat sink. It would have to be after market addition but I'd be happy to consider it if the majority of time spent using my computer could be completely silent.

    On the other hand, water cooled systems can be tuned to be very quiet, near silent, but that's obviously a system that takes up a lot of space and a lot of money.

    What I would like to see too is fanless mode which works with something AMD's ZeroCore feature. ZeroCore only kicks in on Crossfire setups and allows the non-primary card to (almost) turn off. The ideal thing would be for ZeroCore or something similar to be usable with iGPU. With most CPUs now having an onboard iGPU, the ideal thing would be connect the monitor to that, and have the dGPU only turn on when there is actually and 3D load. The rest of the time the dGPU could be totally fanless. This would require some kind of frame-buffer transfer thing like Lucid Virtu.

    Biggest problem (and this is probably the sticking point) is that it would require that the drivers to be aware of all this. So for it to catch on, it would really require support from all three vendors, although AMD could work on something like this with their APU + GPU combinations.

    I'm pretty sure laptops with nvidia gpu's and intel cpu's did that for a while and at the start the laptops had problems because they sometimes weren't sure which gpu to use. So i'm not sure if it's still around or not.

    Does it require additional power, or can this run off the slot alone ? I would have thought this an importance on a 750Ti

    It looks like there's a PCIe connector attached to it in the video.

    I believe the video isnt covering the 750Ti card specifically, but highlighting the technology. Thats a very large card, if it is a 750Ti (the card looks twice as long as the PCIE slot, which the picture of the 750Ti it looks alot shorter).

    Hmm. Sooo tempted to dump my current 750ti for one of these.

    There are custom 750 Ti boards with PCIe connectors in the wild already. It's no stretch that Asus may have added it for added turboboost headroom.
