ASUS Announces its Radeon HD 7800 DirectCu II Graphics Card Series

ASUS kicked off its Radeon HD 7800 series with two non-reference design implementations, DirectCu II TOP, at that. Both the ASUS Radeon HD 7870 and Radeon HD 7850 DirectCu II TOP use a 2-slot variant of ASUS’ coveted dual-fan cooler, and based on what appear to look like a non-reference design PCBs. The DirectCu II cooler consists of a combination of a heatsink and an aluminum fin array, to which heat is conveyed by copper heat-pipes that make direct contact with the GPU die. The cooler makes use of two large fans to ventilate the heatsink. As TOP models, the two should feature 5-10% factory OC, out of the box. There’s no word on the pricing.

HAHAH wow mate you are miss informed so very miss informed. obviously you have never owned an Asus DirectCu II card before... my flatmate has 2 6970 DirectCu II crossfired and they run A HELL OF A LOT COOLER and LESS LOUD that my stock Asus 6970 & my Gigabyte 6970 (winforce 3) could ever run. Oh yeah FYI we have the same parts in our pc's except he is using a 850Watt PSU.

Seriously mate they are freeking awsome coolers the DirectCu II's 20 degrees cooler then my stock ASUS 6970. Down here in Australia they cost the same price to.
