Step up to the state of the art Kepler architecture for a performance boost in the latest blockbuster games and applications every time. Based on the powerful yet power efficient 28nm Kepler architecture, the ASUS GTX650-DCO-1GD5 graphics card packs high-performing SMX shaders and abundant amount of memory, producing exhilarating graphics power that brings your FPS, RTS, MMORPG and RACING games to a new level of realism. The TOP-selected 1137MHz cores with 79MHz higher frequency than reference pushes the performance to full potential.
Besides performance, design concept and build quality are other factors ASUS are known for. DIGI+ VRM with Super Alloy Power delivers superior efficiency, reliability, and performance. ASUS DirectCU cards operate 20% cooler and much quieter than reference in every model. GPU Tweak helps you modify clock speeds, voltages, fan performance and more, all via an intuitive interface.
DirectCU II with SSU architecture ASUS graphics card engineering leads the industry once again with the introduction of DirectCU II SSU thermal design. Comprising two “S” and one “U” shapes, the new heatpipes are precision shaped for optimal efficiency and heat transference. They are also nickel-plated to minimize oxidization, with their mid-section now placed directly over the GPU die. This design shortens heat transfer travel to lower thermal resistance and create bi-directional flow for up to twice the cooling capacity in the same space as that required by existing graphics card cooler designs. High-conductivity copper used in heatpipe formulation creates tube-like vapor chambers, moving heat to a large aluminum heatsink that features extended fins for multiple points of dissipation. The assembly is further chilled by two high performance but carefully-tuned and sound-dampened fans for faster and quieter cooling.
DIGI+VRM with Super Alloy Power Acclaimed DIGI+ VRM has been applied via a power design that uses digital voltage regulators to minimize power noise by 30% and enhance power efficiency by 15%, widen the voltage modulation range, and improve overall stability and longevity by 2.5 times longer than reference.
GPU Tweak GPU Tweak utility helps you modify and tune clocks, power consumption targets, voltages, and fan performance via an intuitive interface. Detailed specs and actual card status are available with GPU-Z. Monitoring widget provides real-time and detailed multi-parameter info. Automatically check and update drivers and BIOS versions. Sync GPU clocks and voltages for easier overclocking.
Kepler GPU Architecture NVIDIA's Kepler GPU architecture has been designed from the ground up not just for maximum performance, but optimal performance per watt. The new SMX streaming multiprocessor is twice as efficient as the prior generation and the new geometry engine draws triangles twice as fast. The result is world class performance and the highest image quality in an elegant and power efficient graphics card.
NVIDIA Adaptive Vertical Sync Nothing is more distracting than framerate stuttering and screen tearing. The first tends to occur when framerates are low, the second when framerates are high. Adaptive V-Sync is a smarter way to render frames. At high framerates, V-sync is enabled to eliminate tearing, at low frame rates, it's disabled to minimize stuttering. It gets rid of distractions so you can get on with gaming.
