ASUS releases custom designed GeForce GTX670 DirectCU II TOP graphics card
ASUS recently released its self-designed ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II TOP graphics card which is accelerated to 1137MHz boost clock while working 20% cooler and significantly quieter than reference design.
This elite GPU card brings NVIDIA’s 28nm “Kepler” GPU technology to a wider audience while maintaining extreme gaming performance. It uses TOP-selected cores that are factory-overclocked for instant speed boosts. The heat mitigation provided by the ASUS DirectCU handles the 2GB DDR5 and 1344 CUDA cores really well, opening new overclocking possibilities with ASUS GPU Tweak.
ASUS TOP cards meet the exacting standards of even the most demanding overclockers, and can handle the highest-end PC gaming with ease. Thanks to the TOP process, the core used on the GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II TOP has been factory-overclocked to 1137MHz, offering gamers an immediate framerate gain.
The proprietary ASUS DirectCU cooler uses all-copper heat dissipation points and an overall 200% larger heat removal area to ensure lower temperatures. With 20% cooler operation compared to reference, the ASUS-designed card can take more intense gaming and overclocking, and lasts longer. At idle, its twin fans work at much lower sound levels than stock cards, creating yet another DirectCU-based low noise, low heat, and high output graphics powerhouse.
This DirectX 11-optimized GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II TOP incorporates several new NVIDIA technologies, such as GPU Boost auto core clock maximization and TXAA advanced anti-aliasing. Both contribute to smoother and better-looking games, as does real time Adaptive Vertical Sync. The card also offers gamers enhanced single-GPU support for NVIDIA 3D Vision technology.
The ASUS GTX DirectCU II TOP will be made available by the first week of June 2012 with an SRP of PhP 22,990 at authorized ASUS distributors.
