ASUS unleashes R9 270 DirectCU II Graphics Card

ASUS DirectCU 2 Graphics Card

Mumbai, 4th December 2013:  — Among a host of firsts, ASUS today announced R9 270 DirectCU II, a brand new graphics card power-driven by the latest AMD Radeon R9 270 graphics-processing unit (GPU). R9 270 happens to be equipped with loads of exclusive ASUS know-hows and tools which include DirectCU II for 20%-cooler and three-times (3X) quieter gaming performance so that gamers can enjoy ultra-stable play with very low noise, even at Full HD resolution.

This is comprehensively followed by Super Alloy Power components for vastly improved endurance and GPU Tweak, that comes across as an easy-to-use software tool which enables users to harness more performance out of the freshly released GPU.  Disseminating the intricacies concerning GPU Tweak, then the features in this quarter includes the ability to control fine GPU and video-memory clock speeds and voltages, cooling-fan speeds alongwith power-consumption thresholds in real time — so overclocking is both easy and can be carried out with high confidence, that is.


Added to these, the GPU Tweak Streaming tool facilitates users to share on-screen action over the internet in real time — so others can watch live as games are being played simultaneously. It’s even possible to prefix a title unto the streaming window coupled with scrolling text, pictures as well as webcam images.

Standing tall as an ASUS overclocked-edition card, R9 270 is overclocked to execute faster than reference — notching up a significant 975MHz core speed and attaining a yardstick of sorts which again goes on to read as 104% level in 3DMark.

If one zips in the specifications then the user shall certainly come vis-à-vis Solid-state capacitors, concrete-core chokes and hardened MOSFETs which are all designed to withstand much greater stress with the application of specially-formulated materials. All said and done, R9 270’s capacitors last up to two-and-a-half times (2.5X) longer than conventional capacitors.
