Asus is holding a celebration, and it doesn't involve eating turkey. The company first started making graphics cards 20 years ago, and it's released the 20th Anniversary Gold Edition GTX 980 Ti to commemorate that fact.
Asus claims this card is the fastest GTX 980 Ti on the planet. The golden boy packs a GPU with 1266MHz base and 1367MHz boost clocks, along with 6GB of VRAM clocked at 7200 GT/s. The power section is a 14-phase design that could help with overclocking efforts. Asus says the Japanese capacitors on this card help reduce buzzing and whining noises under load, too.
Overclocking requires careful temperature management, and to that effect, Asus fitted the Gold GTX 980 Ti with an aluminum backplate and a heatsink with 10-mm heatpipes. Experimenting daredevils playing with liquid nitrogen should appreciate the built-in Memory Defroster. A BIOS reset buttons resets the card to its default clocks in case said experiments fail, while a LED indicator on the card's side panel lets you know the GPU's current load.
Asus says the 20th Anniversary Gold Edition GTX 980 Ti will be available soon, though there's no word on pricing.
