ASUS GeForce GTX 760 DirectCU Mini Detailed – Tiny Yet Powerful

ASUS first showed off their new DirectCU Mini graphics card at CeBIT 2013 with the GTX 670 DirectCU Mini offering a compact design over the regular DirectCU and reference models. ASUS would now be updating the lineup with the GeForce GTX 760 DirectCU Mini which features an exact same design but with a powerful and refined GeForce 700 series architecture.

ASUS GeForce GTX 760 DirectCU Mini Graphics Card Detailed

Expreview got hold of the GeForce GTX 760 DirectCU Mini which is the most compact GeForce GTX 760 model in the world. The GeForce GTX 760 DirectCU Mini features the GK104-225-A2 core that comes with 1152 Cuda core count, 32 ROPs and 96 TMUs. The graphics card runs at a maximum frequency of 1072 MHz with GPU Boost 2.0. The 2 GB GDDR5 memory running along a 256-bit wide interface is clocked at 6008 MHz effective frequency.

Like its predecessor the GTX 670 DirectCU Mini, the GTX 760 DirectCU
Mini is 17cm long which is ideal for HTPC setup boxes. Display
interfaces include Dual-DVI, HDMI and a display port while power is
provided through the single 8-Pin connector. A reference GeForce GTX 760 model comes with dual 6 Pin connectors, using a single 8-Pin connector not only saves space but offers the same amount of power with easier cable management.

The DirectCU heatsink uses a Vapor Chamber with flattened heatpipes.
The proprietary CoolTech fan combines the advantages of axial and radial
fan. The air flow is so directed in multiple directions and reduced the
volume. The cooler design have not been changed over the previous
models and looks as great as ever. A look at the PCB from both ends
reveal that ASUS has placed four chips on the front and four chips at
the back of the PCB which amount to 2 GB GDDR5 memory. The GeForce GTX
760 DirectCU Mini is fused with a 4+1 Phase Super Alloy power design
powered with the RT8867A PWM chip. ASUS used SK Hynix memory modules on
the graphics card with a total capacity of 2 GB.

  • DirectCU Mini with vapor chamber offers 20%(7.5℃) cooler and 3X quieter performance
  • New and advanced CoolTech Fan drives wider airflow to keep critical components cool
  • Direct Power ensures stable performance with 56% less impedance and a 17% cooler PCB
  • Super Alloy Power components increase product longevity by up to 2.5X compared to reference
  • GPU Tweak helps you modify clock speeds, voltages, fan performance and more, all via an intuitive interface

The reference GeForce GTX 760 costs $249 while Expreview has
mentioned a price of 2199 Chinese Yuan for the GeForce GTX 760 DirectCU
Mini or $349 US which is $100 more than the reference cost.
