ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU Mini review -
Tiny, yet a nice dark looking card with red highlights. ASUS clocks the card at a 928 MHz baseclock, a 1033 MHz Boost clock -- the memory is running reference at 6008 MHz (lots of tweaking headroom left though). Combined with these clock frequencies the card should be fairly close to GeForce GTX 680 performance levels.
The ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DCU mini will come with two GB of graphics memory, that's enough if you are a hardcore gamer with a monitor resolution of 1920x1200. Obviously ASUS uses a custom design PCB as it definitely is a little shorter than reference. Eye catching obviously is the two slot dual fan cooling combo. The design is not the most sexy but it is a very silent GTX 670 card, all that while showing very decent cooling numbers in terms of temperature.
The Boost clock speed is based on the average GeForce GTX 670 card running a wide variety of games and applications. That Boost clock will vary from game-to-game depending on certain power conditions. The card is PCIe gen 3.0 compatible. Going from PCIe Gen 2 to Gen 3 doubles the bandwidth available to the add-on cards installed, from 500 MB/s per lane to 1 GB/s per lane.
In this article we review ASUS GeForce GTX 760 DirectCU MINI edition, this particular model comes with a dual-slot DirectCU Mini cooling solution that will fit small form factor based motherboards like Mini ITX up-to 17cm. ASUS has re-engineered the DirectCU cooler to fit small form factor cases. While shorter, it introduces a copper vapor chamber placed directly on top of the GPU for faster heat spreading and dispersal with lower temperatures than reference GTX 760.
ASUS GeForce GTX 760 DirectCU II OC review
In this article we review ASUS GeForce GTX 760 DirectCU II OC edition, this particular model comes with a dual-slot DirectCU II cooing solution. That boils down to a silent product versus and more than excellent cooling performance. Inno3D offers the card factory slightly overclocked at some pretty impressive clock frequencies.
ASUS GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II OC review
We test and review the ASUS GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II review edition. The graphics card comes with a factory overclock and an updated DirectCU II cooler that has CoolTech fans. That would be two silent 90mm fans.
ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU Mini review
In this article we review the ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU Mini edition, a compact performance graphics card designed primarily for small form factor PCs with mini ITX motherboards. The dual-slot card measures just 17cm and features the NVIDIA GTX 670 GPU. ASUS has re-engineered the DirectCU cooler to fit small form factor cases. While shorter, it introduces a copper vapor chamber placed directly on top of the GPU for faster heat spreading and dispersal with 20% lower temperatures than reference GTX 670.
