Asus HD 7790 DirectCU II graphics card offers DirectX 11.1 gaming and multimedia performance
An upper mid-range graphics card, the Asus HD 7790 DirectCU II delivers good gaming and multimedia performance with its 1075MHz AMD Radeon HD 7790 GPU and 1GB GDDR5 video memory. Thanks to its proprietary thermal design, the HD 7790 DirectCU II offers considerable overclocking overhead that can be exploited with the exclusive Asus GPU Tweak utility. GPU Tweak makes it easy to increase core and memory speeds, change voltages, regulate fan speeds, and create individual profiles for different games. The innovative DirectCU II thermal design consists of dual 80mm fans specially-picked for quiet operation, copper heatpipes that contact the GPU directly, and an aluminum shroud for better heat dissipation.
The Asus HD 7790 DirectCU II runs at 20% (7°C) lower operating temperatures than a reference card, and is also significantly quieter than reference while offering better stability and product longevity. The PCI Express 3.0-based HD 7790 DirectCU II offers solid performance in all current and upcoming PC games, while maintaining modest power requirements with twin 6-pin power connectors.
