ASUS has publicized its new graphics card; the GeForce GTX 760 DirectCU Mini which has been built and designed exclusively for the mini ITX motherboards which are mostly found in the small form factor PCs. Yet the performance of the graphics card is outstanding with the NVIDIA GTX 760 GPU and is perfect to be used for all sorts of tasks. The tiny card is a dual slot and is a mere 17 inches. With a PCB of 170 mm in height, it can be best suited to all space restricted cases. The 8-pin PCIe power connector provides the necessary power to the 5-phase VRM which forms part of this PCB.
The design of the GTX 760 DirectCU Mini is somewhat inspired from its predecessor, the GTX 670 DirectCU Mini which was launched previously this year in April.
With a 170 watt TDP, the GeForce GTX 760 DirectCU Mini is low with power consumption and is known to work silently with an intelligent cooling mechanism in place. Heat is easily dispersed and this keeps the temperatures at a minimum. This 2 GB version of the GTX 760 comes with factory over clocking with the standard NVIDIA requirements; it sticks to the clock speeds of 980 MHz core with a 6.00 GHz memory. As a cherry on top, the GPU Boost of 1033 MHz provides remarkable speed which further kicks the overall performance.
The GeForce GTX 760 DirectCU Mini 2 GB version is expected to be available at a price of $299.
