Conclusion: A few factors become apparent when giving the ASUS GeForce GTX 670 Direct CU II TOP a good look. The firm has done a commendable job in ensuring it stays cool and quiet in all conditions, which is a fact worth appreciating given the hike in core frequency over a reference card.
Summary: Yes, you've seen correctly, the ASUS GeForce GTX 670 Direct CU II TOP is the first graphics card ever that I gave a perfect ten score. The stock GeForce GTX 670 provides already great performance, but ASUS has topped that by boosting it with a large overclock out of the box which catapults it beyond...
Pros: Faster than GeForce GTX 680, Whisper quiet in both idle and load, Very power efficient, Excellent memory overclocking potential, Software voltage control, Up to four active displays now, makes surround possible with one card, Support for PCI-Express 3.0 and DirectX 11.1, Support for CUDA and PhysX
Cons: Memory not overclocked out of the box, Dynamic OC can't be turned off, Manual overclocking more complicated than before, No technology similar to AMD's ZeroCore power
