ASUS has announced two GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II graphics cards, the new highest-end offerings in its NVIDIA-based graphics card range.
Utilizing an NVIDIA GK110-300 GPU with 2304 CUDA cores, they come with 3GB GDDR5 video memory on a 384-bit interface, and deliver resolutions beyond Full HD 1080p, without compromising on stability and temperature. They also feature an ASUS-designed PCB and a completely new look for the DirectCU II cooler, as well as DIGI+ VRM digital power delivery and Super Alloy Power components.
The new thermal design that revolves around a direct-GPU contact 10mm copper heatpipe (compared to traditional 8mm heatpipes) contributes to 40% greater heat transfer efficiency. The cooler also uses an intricate heatsink, which ensures a bigger heat dissipation surface area. The proprietary CoolTech fan used on GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II cards enables 360-degree airflow that is much more effective than traditional fans at the same RPM. It consists of a hybrid blade and bearing design, with an inner radial blower and outer flower-type blades. Combined, they provide multi-directional airflow to accelerate heat removal and enable consistently stable graphics card performance.
