I haven't seen the press-release on this one myself, but it seems that ASUS injected a GeForce GTX 680 graphics card under SKU code GTX680-DC2-4GD5 that not only has a dual-slot DirectCU II cooler, it also has 4 GB of graphics memory. The company's DirectCU series lineup for the GTX 680 up-to this point only offered their triple-slot cooling solutions.
The dual-slot cooler has been extensively used by ASUS on several performance-segment GPUs as TPU reports. The card ships with NVIDIA-reference clock speeds of 1006 MHz base, 1058 MHz GPU Boost, and 6008 MHz (GDDR5-effective) memory. The card features memory chips on either sides of the PCB, and so an aluminum back-plate comes pre-installed. Expect the card to be priced around US $520. A variant called GTX680-DC2G-4GD5 is available, which packs a game bundle that includes Assassin's Creed III, I Am Alive, R.U.S.E, Splinter Cell: Conviction, and Rainbow Six Vegas 2. Its price is unknown.

We'll test and review the GeForce GTX 660 Ti DCUII TOP from ASUS. The GeForce GTX 660 DirectCU II TOP edition is factory overclocked pretty high towards 1058 MHz on the core with a boost frequency of 1137'ish.
