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.  One step below the flagship of ASUS' GTX 680 series, the GTX680-DC2O-2GD5 has most of the same ASUS exclusive features as their top dog: the DirectCU II cooler and 10 power phases coupled with the DIGI+ VRM.

Expert Review

20 August 2012
  • 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. Both the 7970 and 680 are overpowered for gaming with a 1920x1080 or 1920x1200 display. Their benefits don't become apparent unless you use an even higher resolution or multi-monitor setup.

Asus GeForce GTX 680 Review

maximum pc
30 May 2012
  • 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. At a later date, the company might ship a super-high-end card using the company’s Matrix or Mars sub-brands.
  • Pros: It’s fast, nearly silent at idle, and sips power.
  • Cons: It’s as scarce as hens teeth.

ASUS GeForce GTX 680 Direct CU II 2 GB

20 April 2012
  • 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. A triple slot cooler promises lower temperatures, lower noise and better overclocking at the cost of increased space consumption and potential issues with multi-GPU configurations.
  • 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, Adds support for PCI-Express 3.0 and DirectX 11.1, Support for CUDA and PhysX
  • 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

  • Cons: Takes up three card slots, High price

Asus Nvidia GeForce GTX 680

16 October 2012
  • 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. If money is tight, then we recommend getting a GeForce GTX 670, as its performance levels are not worlds away from that of the 680 whilst its priced at a R1 000 less.
  • Pros: Epic gaming performance.
  • Cons: Expensive, constrained within an average non-gaming PC case, and somewhat power hungry.

  • Excerpt: Heute ist der offizielle Launchtermin für NVIDIAs neue High-End-Grafikkarten der GeForce GTX 680 Serie. In diesem Zuge haben wir von ASUS eine GTX 680 nach Referenzdeisgn erhalten.

Тест и обзор: ASUS GeForce GTX 680 DirectCU II с 4...

26 March 2013
  • Summary: ASUS вновь и вновь доказывает свое звание лидера на рынке комплектующих - мы получили тихую и быструю видеокарту. Конечно, ASUS GeForce GTX 680 DirectCU II работает на эталонных тактовых частотах, которые NVIDIA требует от своих партнёров, но обратите внимание на мощную систему охлаждения - как по низкому уровню шума, так и по низким температурам. В наших тестах 4-Гбайт видеокарта ASUS GeForce GTX 680 DirectCU II оказалась одной из самых тихих на рынке.
  • Pros: Очень тихая работа в режиме 2D и 3D, Мощная система охлаждения, Хороший потенциал разгона
  • Cons: Скудный комплект поставки, Стандартные тактовые частоты (нет заводского разгона)

Asus GeForce GTX 680 DirectCU II 4GB

18 January 2013
  • Summary: Forventningene til kjøleren, tatt i betrakning at vi ikke kunne se noe kobber, var dog litt lavere. Det viste det seg å ikke være noe slags grunnlag for – konkurransen ble blåst av banen, og kortet sikret seg en solid førsteplass både på temperatur og støy. På ytelsessiden klarte det likevel ikke å levere varene på vår gamle testbenk. Etter en fullstendig oppgradering av denne, så vel som en gjennomgang av rutinene våre, var vi imidlertid klare for en omtest av kortet.
