To warm up for the big GPU news of the day we have a couple more video card announcements. First up is a post from VideoCardz about the launch of a new ASUS GeForce GTX 960 graphics card with the DirectCU 3 cooler. It was introduced without much fanfare, the card is selling in China for around 1700 yuan ($270) and is the first product with the DirectCU 3 cooler.
This is the first product with DirectCU3 solution available for purchase. This cooler was first shown at Computex with recently announced GTX 980 Ti, but it was slightly modified version for STRIX series. The card you see here is the pure DirectCU III model.
ASUS GTX960 DC3 is factory-overlocked to 1228/1291 MHz (based/boost) with memory clock at stock 7 GHz. ASUS GTX960 DC3 has 2GB GDDR5 memory across 128-bit interface.
