Ah I am back to reviewing video cards, it has actually been a little while since I’ve taken a look at a current generation card, but over the past couple of weeks I have caught back up and today I am taking a look at an awesome card from ASUS. Many of ASUS’s non-reference cards feature their DirectCU II cooling system and so does this card, but this card also features a 12-phase VRM that has super alloy caps and chokes, ASUS’s VGA hotwire that allows you to easily check voltages on the card and this single card can drive up to six screens! The card we are taking a look at today is the 28nm ASUS HD 7970 DirectCU II 3GB! Read on as we take a look at this impressive card!
