[Guru3D] ASUS GeForce GTX 680 DirectCU II TOP Review

post #1 of 6

Currently the ASUS GeForce GTX 680 DirectCU II TOP edition is so new that it has not been spotted in the stores just yet. We expect it's price to be in the 500 EUR marker which is a lot of money to play games on your PC alright. The reality remains that the ASUS GeForce GTX 680 DirectCU II TOP edition is now the fastest retail GeForce GTX 680 we tested to date. While doing it's magic it remains absolutely silent. The three slot design remains controversial, I know. But put a 1 and 1 together and you can't deny how well the concept works.

Well, it looks like what they used reference display outputs and a re-used cooler like they did with the 7950, instead of the fully custom version like the 7970 mad.gif
Oh well, I'm sure it'll still be an awesome card thumb.gif

First news post, so sorry if it's a bit crappy...

Jesus, didn't realize they could be so powerful.. I'm sure an oc'd 680 Lightning 4gb will give the same scores, or beat it.
