ASUS Releases Two GeForce® GTX 650 Ti DirectCU II Graphics Cards
Exclusive thermal and card performance tuning features with dual-fan coolers on TOP and OC editions, which are highly unique in their market segment
Dual-fan ASUS GeForce® GTX 650 Ti DirectCU II graphics cards present very attractive options for those interested in moving up to the DirectX® 11 and 28nm era for home multimedia, graphics-reliant productivity, and detailed gaming. Exclusive ASUS features include the DirectCU II thermal design for 20% cooler and 3X quieter operation, DIGI+ VRM and Super Alloy Power for extended longevity and greater stability, and GPU Tweak user-friendly overclocking. The cards further support four-screen displays via NVIDIA® 3D Surround™ technology. ASUS offers two GeForce® GTX 650 Ti DirectCU II variants, including TOP and OC versions.
Performance-focused 105MHz-overclocked TOP version
ASUS GeForce® GTX 650 Ti DirectCU II cards offer high-output products well-suited to a wide range of PC DIY needs. Derived from the NVIDIA® GK106 core, they maintain an excellent cost-to-performance ratio for customers. The TOP version uses specially-picked GPUs that are aggressively-tested and factory-overclocked to 1033MHz boost clock (105MHz above reference) The OC version runs 954MHz boost (26MHz above reference). Both cards ship with 1GB GDDR5 video memory set to 5400MHz.
DirectCU II runs 20% cooler and three times quieter
Unique to all ASUS performance graphics cards, the DirectCU II cooler consists of copper heatpipes in direct contact with the GPU, a larger dissipation area made of thermally-efficient materials, and dual noise-dampening fans. The latter are of special interest, as ASUS GeForce® GTX 650 Ti DirectCU II cards are unique in their category by offering a twin fan design. Overall, DirectCU II results in 20% cooler performance to improve stability and increase overclocking tolerance, plus three times quieter operation- perfect for pleasant gaming and home multimedia environments.
DIGI+ VRM and Super Alloy Power increase performance, reliability, and longevity
ASUS GeForce® GTX 650 Ti DirectCU II products retain the exclusive features that are at the heart of new ASUS graphics cards. Their DIGI+ VRM digital voltage regulation sets them apart, allowing for more delicate voltage adjustments and refined overclocking. As the GTX 650 Ti core offers customers a considerable overclocking margin, DIGI+ VRM control helps unlock these nascent capabilities. To aid in this, Super Alloy Power solid state capacitors, concrete-core buzz-free chokes, and MOSFETs handle heavy load and extended operation with ease. The design allows for 30% less power noise to boost stability, and its long-lasting components translate into 2.5 times the longevity of reference cards.
GPU Tweak taps flexible graphics card tuning and management
The exclusive GPU Tweak utility also joins the package to assist GeForce® GTX 650 Ti DirectCU II buyers in making the most of graphics card power. Easy core and clock adjustments, fan speed controls, and voltage modification allow customers to change card parameters and achieve the utmost performance based on their own needs and system specifications. All GPU Tweak features are accessible from a single user-friendly interface.
Wider viewing and enhanced multitasking on up to four screens
Boasting HDMI 1.4a, D-sub, and dual DVI, ASUS GeForce® GTX 650 Ti DirectCU II cards are optimized for NVIDIA® 3D Surround™ technology to expand displays on up to four monitors at once. For example, gamers may enjoy three-screen action panoramas while using the forth monitor as a large window reserved for GPU Tweak tuning, video chat, and more. The larger visual format is also useful for home and professional productivity, including graphic design and image rendering, enabling better multitasking with more applications open simultaneously.
