The GeForce GTS 450 has been around for quite sometime and many people don’t even think about it when they are purchasing a new video card. You have to think though, it does offer substantial performance for little investment, so you can spend most of your cash on other items in your build. Yes of course there are reference GTS 450 cards, but we are more interested in what comes a few months after launch. ASUS has sent us their ENGTS450 DirectCU OC card, which has ASUS’s custom heatsink and is overclocked up to 850 MHz. Let’s take a look…
AMD released the original 6870 back in October and almost every video card manufacturer had reference models. It has been a while since the launch and now we are seeing manufactures come out with their own versions of the 6870, one such company is ASUS. They have sent us their HD 6870 DirectCU which features ASUS’s in house PCB design, a slight overclock up to 915 MHz and the DirectCU (direct copper) GPU cooling solution, which ASUS says will cool the GPU up to 20% better than the stock cooler. Let’s take a look at this card and see if it is perfect for your gaming needs.
