With the release of the new HD 6770 DirectCU Silent, Asus has deployed the most powerful and advanced fanless graphics cards available. Running totally silent and 16% cooler than generic passive designs, the Asus DirectCU Silent series increases thermal performance and offers consumers a more reliable and longer lasting experience that meets every graphics need, from casual multimedia to dedicated gaming.
Asus thermal engineers have developed exclusive DirectCU cooling technology, integrating direct-contact copper heat pipes that touch the GPU core for faster and more effective heat dissipation, and thus lower temperatures and better performance. Based on these principles, ASUS engineers have created the most effective 0dB silent graphics cards available. DirectCU Silent designs have been applied on the GT 430, GT 440, GTS 450 and HD 6670 previously, and now on the HD 6770 model.
This DirectX 11-compatible card features 800 stream processors and 40 texture units, plus 1GB of GDDR5 video memory. This means it is more than able to handle HD gaming with details and effects set to medium or higher. It is an excellent choice for consumers who require a quiet computing environment, and at the same time are unwilling to sacrifice potent multimedia and gaming capabilities.
