ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II Gets A Perfect 10 From TechPowerUp

May 12, 2012 Written by:ROG Article

Tech giant, TechPowerUp (affectionately sharing an acronym with our 'TPU') just gave the new ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II a perfect 10 score! By their own admission - a very first! In their own words:

"Yes, you've seen correctly, the ASUS GeForce GTX 670 Direct CU II TOP is the first graphics card ever that I gave a perfect ten score. The stock GeForce GTX 670 provides already great performance, but ASUS has topped that by boosting it with a large overclock out of the box which catapults it beyond GTX 680 performance levels. Averaged over all our testing we see the card 1% faster than GTX 680 and 8% faster than GTX 670. The card does so without massive power consumption increase thanks to an efficient VRM design and low temperatures. ASUS has done away with NVIDIA's cheap voltage regulation circuitry and put a much better CHiL controller on the card, which also supports voltage control and monitoring."
