Asus Unleashes Recolorable GTX 780 Ti DirectCU II Card

By - Source: TechPowerUp | B 29 comments

Asus has unleashed its GTX 780 Ti, and it can be colored red, gold or plain black.

Asus has announced its new GTX 780 Ti DirectCU II graphics card. Beyond featuring the new 'king of the hill' GPU, as well as the impressive DirectCU II cooler, it has one more flashy feature.

The graphics card, as stated, is based on the GTX 780 Ti. As such, it features the GK110 GPU, fully enabled to feature 2880 CUDA cores, 240 TMUs and 48 ROPs. Boosted, the GPU will clock at up to 1020 MHz. The memory aboard counts 3 GB and is clocked at an effective speed of 7.0 GHz.

Asus has also equipped the card with its DIGI+ VRM circuitry, giving the card a 10-phase power design. According to Asus, this reduces the card's power noise by 30 percent and makes the card 15 percent more efficient.

The most interesting feature, which happens to be the least technological one of the card, is its flashy appearance. Reportedly, its accent stickers can be swapped for either red stickers or gold stickers, to match your Asus motherboard.

Asus will ship the card starting mid-December, with no word on pricing just yet.

    This makes sense since the Gold boards just don't match ANY other hardware except maybe Zotacs yellow GPUs.

    Why not do this with, LEDs rather? LEDs are cheap, sexy and consume almost no power.

    Even though everyone is just going to say "OHHHHH, STICKERS" or something of the like, I cannot count how many time's over the years people have requested for matching color schemes for their custom PC hardware. So to that I say, thanks for the options ASUS. Now could I just have a R9 290X DirectCU II w/ all mini-DP ports? Yeeeaahh, that'd be great.

    I'd like a replaceable cooler with air or watercooling options that has no stickers.

    Krylon hi-temp spray paint works better, ask any tagger.

    they just need to design graphics cards facing upwards so you can actually see the decals. Wonder why it is that they are all designed to be upside down in the case?

    Asus mini itx board non ROG uses the gold color. The all black is more my speed though. It's a nice idea. A lot of enthusiasts also pay attention to the color schemes of their systems.

    They should try and make a video card that can do what a Cuttlefish can, just recolor itself based on its surroundings. Now that would be badass!

    Boost to 1020 MHz? Sure it isn't its base clock?

    Never mind. 1020 MHz is its base clock, they 'boosted' the base clock from 875 MHz. That being said, what is its boost clock? 1100 MHz?

    Nice and all, but the only time I will probably see it, is during the build, after that, it will be facing downwards. Unless I want to turn my tower into a desktop by laying on its side just to stare at the matching colors.
    Asus should have done, is to make the cooler either transparent or translucent and then add color leds that can be changed via a utility.
