ASUS GeForce GTX 780 Direct CU II OC Video Card Now AvailableMon, Jul 08, 2013 - 1:41 PM
The ASUS GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II Graphics Card is now available to purchase. ASUS claims that they have pushed the boundaries of cooling, power delivery, and overclockability to create the new standard in high-end video cards. The ASUS GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II OC graphics card feature an ASUS-designed PCB and a redesigned DirectCU II cooler featuring a direct-GPU contact 10mm copper heatpipe (compared to traditional 8mm heatpipes) that contributes to 40% greater heat transfer efficiency. The GPU base clock is 863MHz, but it can boost up to 941MHz. The GTX780-DC2OC-3GD5 ships with 3072MB of GDDR5 memory that runs at a default clock speed of 6008MHz.
The ASUS-designed PCB uses Super Alloy Power components and a DIGI+ VRM digital power delivery design for improved power efficiency. For PC gamers who demand ultra-high detail in resolutions beyond full HD, GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II cards deliver superior cooling, stability, and endurance. All these high-end features do come at a price though as it runs £629.99 inc VAT (£524.99 ex VAT) on Overclockers UK. We looked for this card on Amazon and Newegg, but it is not listed yet.
For enhanced overclocked headroom and gaming experience, ASUS redesign GTX780 with DIGI+ VRM offering precise digital delivery for better software overclocking stability. For enhanced overclocked headroom, ASUS GTX780-DC2OC-3GD5 uses 8+2 phase power design in Super Alloy Power technology, compared to 6+2 phase power design in reference card. In addition, GPU Tweak utility helps users modify and tune boost clock speed, power target, temperature target and fan performance via an intuitive interface. This card uses PCI Express 3.0 as the standard interface, doubling the data bandwidth of PCI Express 2.0. The power of ASUS GTX780-DC2OC-3GD5 also supports NVIDIA Adaptive VSync technology and 3D Vision surround.
