Asus Building GeForce GTX 660 Dragon Edition Card

Image source: cowcotland

Asus is releasing a new graphics card: the GTX 660 Dragon Edition. The card's model number GTX660Ti-DP-2GD5 somehow has the "Ti" phrasing in it.

The card's cooler is almost identical to the standard DirectCU II TOP cooler, with the exceptions of the blue stripes (instead of red) and a backplate to cool the memory chips on the rear of the card.

Concerning specifications, the card features a GPU Boost speed of 1,150 MHz and 2 GB of GDDR5 memory running at 6 GHz over a 192-bit interface. The card will also feature Asus' Direct Power vGPU passive signal-noise dampener.

So far, there has been no word on pricing nor availability.

    It was for the 660Ti. Same news though, I dont know why every little launch merits its own article. Its not like these cards are a big deal or push the tech very much

    Start working at home with Google! It’s by-far the best job Ive had. Last Monday I got a new Alfa Romeo from bringing in $7778. I started this 9 months ago and practically straight away started making more than $83 per hour. I work through this link,>>>>>>>> www.Wow72.coℳ

    Exactly, I'm pretty sure that's how half the articles here are written.....through Google search, then copy and paste and paraphrase

    I've read it before in techpowerup-com, this is a shortened version of what they have there.

    Doesn't look like a dragon but could possibly be as loud as one, even with the noise dampening.

    So its not red, its blue now...I wonder how much ASUS are going to spin on this because the Dragon, as opposed to Direct CUII is a cleaver sale gimmick.

    It's too weak to wield the name "dragon" on it. You need at least a 680 or other top-tier card for that.
