ASUS continues to impress with the ENGTX580 DirectCU II. It's not so much the stock performance, but the potential that exists with all the enhancements ASUS has made to the PCB design and build philosophies. These things make this card the weapon...

Right out of the box, the ASUS GTX 580 DirectCU II has the looks to impress. Although the factory overclock it comes with appears very modest at only 10MHz more than the reference 772MHz core clock, it does however lend itself to tweaking and...

At Rs. 31,000, it’s expensive but it’s a card made specifically for gamers who want to be able to play games with the details and settings turned up. Our only issue is that the card maybe a little too large if you use a microATX board and...

As we saw in testing, both the ASUS GTX 580 and GTX 570 DirectCU II models are extremely impressive gaming cards and will provide more than enough horsepower in modern game titles. The GTX 580 topped the framerate charts, soundly thrashing the...

ASUS is a company reputed for going all the way through with its ideas; once they’ve decided to create a special product (or product series, for that matter) and present it to the market, they achieve what they had in mind. This is the case with...

Visually the most important feature of the ASUS GTX 580 Direct CU II is its huge cooler that occupies three slots in your system. Yes, three slots. ASUS promises that this will add more cooling capability to their beast, so the card can run cooler and...

With their DirectCU II version ASUS shows its first high end NVIDIA graphics card with a triple slot cooler. Until today only Gainward with their GLH series (Goes Like Hell) was known for their huge triple slot coolers but now also ASUS has such a...

The ASUS GTX 580 DirectCU 2 takes a more extreme approach and the result is a fantastic version of the card. As well as providing the lowest temperatures and noise levels we have seen on a GTX 580 to date it also overclocks higher than any model we have...

International Review By Alt om DATA on 90

Overclockingsvenligt grafikkort, der i forvejen strutter af kræfter, og som klarer alt, der bliver kas-tet imod det. Stiller dog store krav til især plads til bundkortets layout. Er noget dyrt og ikke for alle, men det larmer ikke specielt...
