ASUS GTX 670 DirectCU II TOP 2GB Review

Test Setup

CPU: Intel Core i7-3960X @ 4817MHz 1.52v
Motherboard: ASUS Rampage IV Extreme (Bios 0018)
Memory: G.Skills ARES 2133MHz DDR3 16GB Kit
Power Supply: Antec True Quattro Pro 1200W
Storage: Intel 520 series 240GB SSD
Graphics Cards / Drivers:

304.79 (PCIe 3.0 fix applied)



Nvidia GTX 680 2GB


Catalyst 12.7 Beta

AMD Radeon HD7970 GHz Edition

AMD Radeon HD7970 3GB


To prevent GPU Boost (NVIDIA's adaptive throttling mechanism) from interfering with the clocks, we need to change this setting in the Nvidia Control Panel.





As we can see from the above benchmarks, the ASUS 670 DirectCU II actually is head to head and sometimes ahead of its more prestigious competition at stock and when overclocked. Having said that, the other cards still have significant overclocking headroom though, but they cost more.
