ASUS GeForce GTX 680 DirectCU II 2GB
2 December 2012
Excerpt: Next in our series of video cards review is a product from ASUS. As a large tier-1 hardware manufacturer, ASUS is both a partner of AMD and nVidia for its graphics products. Today we'll be looking at one of ASUS' high end nVidia GeForce GTX 680 based products.
Summary: According to credible gaming-oriented review sites like PC Perspective , HardwareCanucks and AnandTech , the GTX 680 is one of the fastest single GPU cards on the market, falling somewhere between AMD's Radeon 7970 and the overclocked 7970 GHz Edition.
Excerpt: Asus has been coming on strong in graphics cards for several years now, though it never offers quite the variety of versions as companies like XFX and EVGA. Typically, Taiwan-based Asus will ship a reference card under its main brand, and then a custom-built, high-end card under its DirectCU brand.
Pros: It’s fast, nearly silent at idle, and sips power.
Summary: ASUS has taken the already great NVIDIA GTX 680 reference design and put some work into improving it. The company is a leader in triple slot cooling solutions, so it is only natural that releasing a GTX 680 Direct CU II was one of their top priorities.
Pros: Large performance increase, Overclocked out of the box, Reasonable price increase, Some additional OC headroom left, Quiet, Low temperatures, Software voltage control & monitoring, Up to four active displays now, makes surround possible with one card, Native full-size HDMI & DisplayPort output, A...
Cons: Dynamic OC can't be turned off, Manual overclocking more complicated than before, Triple slot design might not be for all, Could be quieter under load, No technology similar to AMD's ZeroCore power
Conclusion: Asus’ Nvidia GeForce GTX 680 delivers a significant amount of graphical bite for its equally lethal retail price. We feel that it is a worthy investment at R6 220 from LivDigital on 010-590-9281.
Pros: Epic gaming performance.
Cons: Expensive, constrained within an average non-gaming PC case, and somewhat power hungry.
Excerpt: I det siste har vi testet en rekke skjermkort med ekstra solide kjøleløsninger, og dagens modell fra Asus føyer seg fint inn i denne rekken. Dets fulle navn er Asus GeForce GTX 680 DirectCU II 4 GB , og ut fra dette kan vi fastslå at vi snakker om en skikkelig muskelbunt.
