Asus launched the GTX 560 DirectCU II TOP graphics card today, based on the powerful Nvidia GTX 560 released earlier this year. The Asus GTX 560 DirectCU II Top is pre-overclocked and combines exclusive features such as DirectCU II cooling and Super Alloy Power technology. With these advantages, the GTX 560 DirectCU II TOP is designed to be pushed to its maximum, allowing users to enjoy a fantastic gaming experience.
The Asus GTX 560 DirectCU II TOP comes in factory-overclocked at 925MHz – 115MHz more than reference for enhanced performance while sporting a hefty 1Gb of GDDR5 memory. For overclockers who want to push the card to its limits, Asus offers its exclusive Voltage Tweak utility for up to 50 percent faster performance.
With its DirectCU II dual fan design, copper heat pipes make direct contact with the GPU core, so the GTX 560 DirectCU II TOP is 20 percent more efficient at transferring heat to the two large fans cooling it. The efficient dual fan design generates twice the air flow over paddle fan designs. This effectively dissipates the heat generated, keeping the card running both cool and quiet.
The GTX 560 DirectCU II TOP uses Super Alloy Power technology, which is constructed using a specially formulated alloy that increases power efficiency. It delivers a 15 percent performance boost, while also reducing operating temperatures up to 35 degrees for an overall increase in lifespan by 2.5 times.
