The GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II should be a standard clocked card suggesting a base GPU and shader clock of 900MHz with a rumoured boost clock of around 990MHz and 2GB of GDDR5 memory with a rumoured clock speed of 1,250MHz (5GHz effectively). The card features a four heatpipe cooler with a copper interface towards the GPU and a pair of fans. Asus has also added its Digi+ VRM design from its motherboards to the GTX 670 cards.

The GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II TOP has a slightly different cooler with what appears to be larger fans. The key selling point here though is a higher GPU boost frequency of 1,137MHz, although it's not clear if the GPU will be clocked higher at its default speed or not. Both cards also appear to have a metal plate covering the back of the PCB and there's also a small metal extension protruding from the rear of the card which is attached to the heatsink. The connectivity options are also the same on both cards with two DVI ports, one DisplayPort and one HDMI port.
