For their latest cards, ASUS designed a new DirectCU thermal solution, which has a great look and feel to it thanks to its red highlights and high quality plastic that feels almost like metal. You find a baseplate on the back. Dimensions of the card are 30.5 cm x 15.0 cm.
Installation requires two slots in your system.
Display connectivity options include one DVI port, one HDMI port, and three DisplayPorts.
The GPU also includes an HDMI sound device. It is HDMI 2.0 compatible, which includes HD audio and Blu-ray 3D movies support.
NVIDIA has confirmed Quad-SLI support, so you may combine four GTX 980 Ti cards in a multi-GPU SLI configuration.
