techPowerUp! News :: ASUS GeForce GTS 450 DirectCu Spotted in the Wild
One of ASUS’ first implementations of the upcoming NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 mid-range GPU, the ASUS ENGTS450 DirectCu, has been listed on a Bulgarian online store. The picture reveals a fairly long graphics card that features ASUS’ popular DirectCu (direct copper) GPU heatsink assembly, which the company has used extensively on upper Mid-range thru performance graphics cards, from both its Radeon (EAH) and GeForce (EAN) product lines. From what little we can see, the card has one each of DVI, D-Sub, and HDMI connectors, one SLI connector, and a design which ASUS claims to be 20% cooler and 35% quieter than the NVIDIA reference design.

This exposé also confirms the GPU specifications we earlier reported: 40 nm core, 192 CUDA cores, 1 GB of GDDR5 memory across a 128-bit wide memory interface, and clock speeds of 783/1566/~900 (~3600 eff.) MHz (core/CUDA core/memory) speeds. The card is expected to be priced around 145 EUR before applicable taxes.
