ASUS GeForce ® GTX 760 presents product portfolio

GTX 760 DirectCU II GTX 760 DirectCU II OC and GTX 760 DirectCU mini games with very good performance for different form factors

ASUS extended its portfolio to include graphics cards, the GeForce ® GTX 760 DirectCU II, the GTX 760 DirectCU II OC and GTX 760 DirectCU mini based on the latest 28nm GPU technology from NVIDIA ®. All three models come with 1152 CUDA cores and 2GB of GDDR5 memory with a 256bit memory interface. The exclusive DirectCU coolers provide lower temperatures and quieter operation than a GTX 760 reference design.

The DirectCU mini design was developed specifically for use in very compact PC enclosures. Gamers can build as particularly small systems with optimum performance and operate. The GTX 760 DirectCU uses the CoolTech mini fan for better heat dissipation and lower body temperatures.

On all models Super Alloy Power components are installed, which allow for high loads an extended life. The Direct Power Architecture increases stability, reduces latency and impedances of the power supply and reduces the temperature of the board.

With a maximum boost clock of 1072MHz and 6008MHz 2GB of GDDR5 memory, the GeForce ® GTX 760 DirectCU II OC offers very good DirectX ® 11 performance at an attractive price point.

The exclusive DirectCU II cooler uses copper heat pipes in direct contact with the GPU. He leads off the heat effectively, enabling up to 20% lower temperatures than the reference design. The two 80mm fans reduce noise by up to 50% compared to the reference specifications. The fans are also dustproof to reduce the accumulation of dirt.

The graphics card uses the exclusive Direct Power architecture. It extends the power supply for a stable operation of the graphics card and improves performance by minimizing latency and impedances. In addition, the circuit board through the improved heat removal remains cooler, as the current, other than traditional layout of graphics boards, is passed through an additional transmission.

Super Alloy components include solid electrolyte capacitors, chokes and MOSFETs, which consist of highly resistant materials. They withstand high temperatures and loads. To extend the average life of a graphics card by 2.5 times compared to a reference design.

To exploit the full potential of the GTX 760 DirectCU II OC, it comes with the ASUS GPU Tweak tuning tool. It provides users the ability to create performance profiles for games, GPU and memory clock speeds, and adjust fan settings and set the power consumption as well as temperature thresholds.

ASUS GeForce ® GTX 760 DirectCU Mini: The first GTX 760 in a compact design


The new ASUS GeForce ® GTX 760 DirectCU Mini is the direct successor of the ASUS GeForce ® GTX 670 DirectCU Mini, which also combines a very high gaming performance in an extremely compact design. With only 17cm x 12cm x 4cm, the GeForce ® GTX 760 DirectCU also fits in very small housing, making it the first choice for Mini-ITX systems with dedicated graphics card. The GPU is clocked at 1072MHz, the 2GB of GDDR5 memory running at 6008MHz.

The DirectCU heatsink uses a Vapor Chamber with flattened heatpipes. The proprietary CoolTech fan combines the advantages of axial and radial fan. The air flow is so directed in multiple directions and reduced the volume.

Even the GeForce ® GTX 760 DirectCU Mini has the ASUS exclusive features Direct Power Super Alloy Power and GPU Tweak.
