ASUS announced the GTX670-DC2-4GD5, a new GeForce GTX 670 graphics card based on the DirectCU II 2-slot design. The card is armed with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory, across a 256-bit wide memory interface, clocked at 6.00 GHz (192 GB/s). The card implements a custom-design PCB, with 6+2 phase Digi+ VRM that uses SuperAlloy chokes (which don't whine on load). The Digi+ VRM controller provides a certain degree of software voltage control using the GPU Tweak tool. The GPU is clocked at 915 MHz, with 980 MHz GPU Boost frequency. The card draws power from two 6-pin PCIe power connectors. Display outputs include two DVI, and one each of HDMI and DisplayPort. The new 4 GB GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II from ASUS is expected to be priced around US $450.
