ASUS has released its top of the line GeForce GTX 780 graphics card in its GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II OC. This card features NVIDIA’s GK110-300 core, has 2304 CUDA cores, 3 GB of GDDR5 memory and has a engine clock of 941 MHz. The card features an ASUS designed PCB and an all new DirectCU II cooling system.
Back in August NVIDIA released the GTX 660 Ti, which came in around the $300 price range. Performance on the card was great, but not everyone has $300 to spend on a video card. So NVIDIA released the GTX 660, which hits your wallet around $200-$250, but still offers great performance and lower power consumption. Today we are checking out one of ASUS’s GTX 660 variants, the GeForce GTX 660 DirectCU II OC Edition. This card features ASUS’s DirectCU II cooling, which ASUS says provides 20% better cooling performance than a stock cooler. This is also the Overclocked (OC) edition of the card. That means the GPU clock is set to 1020 MHz (1085 MHz boost clock) over the stock settings of 980 MHz. You also get ASUS’s DIGI+VRM power delivery design which enhances power efficiency by 15% and minimizes power noise by 30%. Are you in the market for a GTX 660? Is this the one for you?
