Asus, the word known enthusiast component manufacturer has added a DirectCU II version of GTX 680 graphics card that boasts not only the more advanced cooling solution and higher clocks, but a completely custom PCB with DIGI+ VRM 10-phase power design supporting Super Alloy Power technology as well as on board VGA Hotwire that allows you to plug and solder wires on the card's voltage regulators and accurately read and control Vcore, Vmem, and PLL voltages on a hardware level.
As for particular specs, the card is factory overclocked to 1201MHz (Boost mode) with 2GB GDDR5 running at 6008 MHZ (QDR). It is said that Asus GTX 680 DirectCU II operates 20% cooler and 14dB quieter than reference design cards thanks to DirectCU II thermal design which uses six all-copper pipes and an oversized heatsink. In fact first preliminary tests show that when loaded temps don't not exceed 70 C. The PCI bracket side of the novelty features a regular set of outputs: Dual DVI, HDMI and a Display Port.
