GeForce GTX 770 DirectCU II Launched by ASUS

Not as fast as some might expect, but still factory overclocked

The reference GeForce GTX 770 graphics card from NVIDIA operates at 1,046 MHz / 1,085 MHz, but ASUS was not satisfied with that.

That is why it factory overclocked the GeForce GTX 770 DirectCU II, knowing that the dual-fan cooler could handle the extra heat.

Thus, the GPU, with its 1,536 CUDA cores, 128 TMUs, and 32 ROPs, runs at up to 1,110 MHz.

The 2 GB of GDDR5 are left alone though (7 GHz over a 256-bit memory interface).

The GPU Tweak graphics card tuning utility allows owners to further affect clocks through a user-friendly interface.

As for the cooler itself, it has all-copper heatpipes (direct-touch) and sound-suppressing dual 80mm fans. It should keep things 20% cooler than normal.

For those who haven't guessed, the base clock of the newcomer is 1,059 MHz.
