DirectCU

Direct cooling for 20% cooler than reference

 

Please check out our microsite for more details and downloads.

If the GPU is the heart of a graphics card, then the cooling device would be its lungs. Without it, the graphics card would not be able to "breath" smoothly, causing it to break down or even cause the entire system to fail. For ultimate cooling, ASUS DirectCU thermal technology developed the ideal heat banishing copper in exclusively designed heat pipes for direct and fast heat dissipation.
ASUS DirectCU technology
Thick copper heatpipes are accurately positioned in direct contact with the GPU surface so heat is transported and dissipated efficiently to the heatsink - achieving a 20% cooler performance than reference. Since heat is carried away faster, fans can spin at a lower speed thus resulting in quieter performance than reference.
Other brands
An extra metal plate is placed between the heatpipes and GPU, slowing down heat transfer to the heatsink. Due to temperature build-up, the fan has to spin faster, leading to louder operating noise.
Please check out our microsite for more details and downloads.

 

Super Alloy Power

15% performance boost, 2.5 times longer lifespan, 35°C cooler operation

 



The new and exclusive Super Alloy Power technology on ASUS graphics cards uses a special alloy formula which is highly-magnetic, heat-resistant and anti-corrosive. It delivers a more stable and quieter operation compared to the reference design – a welcome bonus sought after by performance seekers.
Super Alloy Power
15% Performance Boost
During overclocking, the Super Hybrid Engine acts as an intelligent controller to switch between high and low intensity power profiles in real time for 15% performance boost*.

2.5X Longer Lifespan
Super Alloy Capacitor increases the card’s lifespan to 150,000 hours which is 2.5 times longer* than traditional capacitors.


35°C Cooler Operations
Super Alloy components are reinforced with special alloy formula and manufactured under high temperature and pressure to deliver stable and noise-free operation.

 

GPU Tweak

Tweak and tune like a PRO

 

Please check out our microsite for more details and downloads.

Overclocking is made real-time and intuitive with ASUS GPU Tweak utility. It not only allows you to optimize clock speeds, voltage and fan speeds on up to four graphics cards independently or simultaneously, you can also select between GPU Tweak’s Standard or Advanced modes depending on your level of experience. On top of these exciting tools, ASUS gives you more:
Sync GPU clocks and voltages for easier overclocking

Automatically check and update driver and BIOS versions

Get detailed specs and actual card status with GPU-Z

2D/3D switcher can lock the card in 3D for higher benchmarks

Monitoring widget provides detailed multi-parameter info



Please check out our microsite for more details and downloads.

GPU clock and voltage sync and Disable 2D functions are not applicable on GTX 600 cards.

Upgraded from the 5770 to 7870, ASUS makes the best cards, this card lowered my system temperature by 5-8 degrees C and lowered my idle wattage by 30 watts. This card's heat sink not only looks cool, it runs cool and very quiet. I am very happy with this card, ASUS makes the best cards. Came with 2 Steam games (Never Settle Forever Radeon Promo).

I would have bought the R9 270X knowing that they were just about to have them for purchase. No regrets though.
