ASUS readied its second "Dragon" branded performance graphics card, the first being last year's Radeon HD 7850 Dragon. These cards are typically a notch above DirectCU II OC models, in featuring a backplate, and slightly improved VRM.

The company's new GeForce GTX 660 Ti Dragon, pictured below, features out of the box clock speeds of up to 1150 MHz core, and 6.10 GHz memory. It features 2 GB of GDDR5 memory across a 192-bit wide memory interface. The card's cooling assembly is nearly identical to the company's DirectCU II, with the exception of blue accents, and a back-plate. From the looks of it, the card could feature a GPU electrical noise filter, similar in function to MSI GPU Reactor module. ASUS tells us that the card is specific to the Greater China region, it's unlikely to make it to western markets.

It's like GPU interbreeding. Weird kinda stuff. It just looks like a generic DCUII TOP with blue instead of red.
Thanks for the colour scheme change Asus, it made a real difference. All that blue colour is sure to make it run cooler. Everybody knows red things run hot. Better VRM's eh?
Or perhaps its a dick move to make sure their colour scheme doesnt mix well with MSI's new MoBo?

Probably see this one out my way but I still enjoy my ASUS 7870.
But the colour scheme would go a little better with my motherboard...not that it really matters.

First we saw MSI Dragon VGAs using the red theme as seen on Asus's Direct CU. Now we see Asus using Blue theme on another Dragon VGA which is similar to MSI's main VGA and motherboard theme. Hyped Taiwanese.

Also Direct Cu cooler is ugly, as always :roll:

Lool! Copy FTW.

The "dragon" cliché is already very worn, there's a lot of fictional creatures available... I mean, call it "Cazador" Edition... those were tough bastards in Fallout NV. Or the "Deathclaw", damn, badass overkill.

"Presenting, the GTX Titan Legendary Deathclaw Edition." :eek:
