Taipei, Taiwan (19th December, 2013) — ASUS today announced GTX 780 Ti DirectCU II, a graphics card powered by the new GeForce® GTX 780 Ti graphics-processing unit (GPU) and fitted with exclusive DirectCU II technology for cooler, quieter and faster performance.

The GeForce GTX 780 Ti GPU is powered by 25% more CUDA (Compute Unified Device Architecture) cores and benefits from a boosted clock speed of 1020MHz — both significant increases on its predecessor that enable ASUS GTX 780 Ti to deliver astonishing gaming performance. With exclusive ASUS DirectCU II technology on board, GTX 780 Ti DirectCU II runs up to 30% cooler, three times (3X) quieter and 6% faster than reference cards when playing BattleField 4™.

Exclusive DirectCU II thermal and CoolTech fan technology delivers faster and quieter gaming

Only ASUS is able to offer the GTX 780 Ti GPU on a graphics card with DirectCU II — because DirectCU II is exclusive to ASUS. This innovative thermal technology puts highly-conductive 10mm copper cooling pipes in direct contact with a card’s GPU so heat is dissipated quickly and with extreme efficiency.

To further boost cooling, GTX 780 Ti DirectCU II includes a heat-sink that’s 220% larger than reference along with a proprietary CoolTech fan — this consists of a hybrid blade and bearing design, with inner radial blower and outer flower-type blades that provide multi-directional airflow to accelerate heat removal and enable highly stable graphics performance.

All these exclusive ASUS innovations combine to allow GTX 780 Ti DirectCU II to run up to 30% cooler and three times (3X) quieter than reference cards – and that means faster, more stable blockbuster (AAA) games-playing with very low noise.

Ultra-smooth power supply for ultra-stable performance

Another exclusive ASUS technology built in to GTX 780 Ti DirectCU II is DIGI+ voltage-regulation module (VRM) — a 10-phase power design that reduces power noise by 30% and enhances energy efficiency by 15%, compared to reference designs. DIGI+ VRM also widens voltage-modulation tolerance and improves overall stability and longevity — by two-and-a-half times (2.5X) above reference.

ASUS designed DIGI+ VRM with components of exceptional quality. DIGI+ VRM is built with extremely heard-wearing polymerized organic-semiconductor capacitors (POSCAPs) and while GTX 780 Ti DirectCU II has an aluminum backplate, further lowering power noise, increasing durability, enhancing overclocking possibilities and improving stability.

GPU Tweak utility offers exclusive overclocking opportunities — easily and safely

GTX 780 Ti DirectCU II includes the GPU Tweak utility that’s exclusive to ASUS graphics cards.

This easy-to-use tool hands users a variety of unique controls that enable them to squeeze the very best performance from the GTX 780 Ti GPU. These include the ability to control finely GPU speeds, voltages and video-memory clock speeds in real time — so overclocking is both easy and can be carried out with high confidence.

As well, the GPU Tweak Streaming tool lets users share on-screen action over the internet in real time — so others can watch live as games are played. It’s even possible to add a title to the streaming window along with scrolling text, pictures and webcam images.
