DirectCU II featuring 10mm heatpipe

The ASUS GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II OC graphics card features a 10mm heatpipe instead of conventional 8mm width. This particular variation helps boosts overall heat dissipation by up to 40% compared to reference and delivers 30% cooler, 3X quieter operations.

Super Alloy Power + Digi+VRM

The application of DIGI+VRM integrates a 10-phase power design to use digital voltage regulators to minimize power noise level by 30% and enhance power efficiency by 15%. DIGI+VRM is designed with wider voltage modulation tolerance to improve overall stability as well as increase overclocking potential.

Included Backplate

Tough backplate for extra protection and support for the card.

DirectCU II with SSU Thermal Design

20% Cooler, 2x Quieter

Comprising two ā€œSā€ and one ā€œUā€ shapes, the DirectCU II with SSU heatpipes are precisely shaped for optimal efficiency and heat transference. Now with their mid-section placed directly over the GPU, this design creates bi-directional flow and shortens heat transfer distance- doubling cooling capacity while maintaining the same size and footprint of existing graphics card cooling solution. This award-winning combination delivers 20% cooler and 2x quieter operations.

Super Alloy Power

Up to 35° cooler operations & 15% performance boost

ASUS exclusive Super Alloy Power utilizes specially formulated alloy inside power delivery components to provide a more stable and quieter operation compared to reference design. The specially formulated alloy is highly-magnetic, heat-resistant and anti-corrosive. Super Alloy Power can provide 2.5 longer lifespan while providing up to 35° cooler operations. With Super Hybrid Engine to intelligently monitor and control power management, Super Alloy Power graphics cards are able to deliver up to a 15% performance boost.

Digi + VRM

Minimize noise by 30% & enhance power efficiency by 15%

The application of DIGI+VRM integrates a 10-phase digital power design with digital voltage regulators to minimize power noise level by 30% and enhance power efficiency by 15%. DIGI+VRM is designed with wider voltage modulation tolerance to improve overall stability as well as increase overclocking potential.

Dual Dust-Proof Fans

Increased reliability and performance

DirectCU II thermal assembly is further chilled by dual high-performance fans to direct airflow onto the large aluminum heatsink to efficiently dissipate heat. Each fan have been carefully tested and fine-tuned to minimize noise even under full load. In addition, each fan features a dust-proof design to reduce dust and debris accumulation for increased reliability and improved performance.

DirectCU II

20% Cooler, 2x Quieter

ASUS exclusively engineered DirectCU II technology to provide a cooler and quieter thermal solution. DirectCU II utilizes five copper pipes in direct contact with the GPU to quickly dissipate heat to high conductivity aluminum heat sink. Along with two 80 mm fans to provide up to 6X more airflow than reference design, ASUS DirectCU II cooling solution can provide up to 20% cooling operations and up to 2x quieter.
