ASUS releases the silent and cool HD6770 directCU edition

ASUS, today has revealed a new variant of a graphic card based on the AMD 6770 graphics chipset, which is a mid range graphics card. 

What’s special about this card is the fanless design that allows literally a zer0 dB operation. The cooling method used here is a heatsink. Dubbed the directCU method of cooling, it features a massive heat sink, that is supposedly 95% larger and 16% cooler. This card will be an option for people, who hate the whiny fan sound that usually accompanies graphics-intensive games like GTA4 or Crysis.

Other miscellaneous advantages include slightly better performance thanks to the use of super alloys, increases the performance by 15% says ASUS. The GPU is DX11 compatible, has 800 stream processors ( please do not compare with Nvidia, the architectures are different ), and 40 texture units. All this, is supported by a 128-bit memory interface and a 850Mhz clocked engine. Only concern is what the heat levels will be like, considering there is no fan on the GPU.

Crysis 2 in DX11 awaits.

Price – Rs.9750/- excluding taxes, 3 years warranty.
