ASUS GTX580 DirectCU II SLI review -
The GeForce GTX 580 comes with 1536 MB memory. The reference card is clocked at a 772 MHz core frequency, 1544 MHz on the shader processors and the GDDR5 memory runs at 4000 MHz (effective). ASUS clocks this card 10 MHz higher (?). Yes, we did expect a massive factory overclock TBH, but that is not the case.
So The DirectCU- II version runs at 782 MHz on the core, 1564 on the shaders and 4008 MHz on the memory. Well, at least we know we can overclock the heck out of them, so no worries here just yet.
Connectivity wise, we see two dual-link DVI connectors supporting all high-resolution monitors and all the way to the top you can see a HDMI and Display Port connector. The upper side of the metal plate has large gaps for exhausting and not blocking hot air.
We received that big'ass Republic of Gamers (ROG) MATRIX GTX 580 graphics card from ASUS. The Republic of Gamers MATRIX GTX 580 Platinum graphics card is powered by an extensive 19-phase VRM circuitry that draws power from two 8-pin PCI-Express power connectors. The card will come with two BIOSes, so should you mess one up you have a failsafe by pressing a button. Something interesting is on-the-fly fan RPM control, check the photo's later on for that feature.
ASUS GTX580 DirectCU II SLI review
We review the GTX 580 DirectCU-II and it is one big momma ! ASUS shortly ago released a new version in the flagship series of NVIDIA graphics card, the GeForce GTX 580. They customized the graphics card itself, overclocked it, allow even more tweaking and to top it off, they placed a three slot wide cooling solution on it. heck let's test two of these in an SLI setup.
ASUS GTX560 DirectCU II review
The ASUS GTX560 DirectCU II or SKU name ENGTX560 TI-DCII tested today indeed comes all customized and factory overclocked, with quality grade components and a robust build the dark PCB of the GTX560 DirectCU II will carry a GPU clocked at 900 MHz and memory at 4200 MHz, both thus a nice chunk faster than reference.
