Next in our series of video cards review is a product from ASUS. As a large tier-1 hardware manufacturer, ASUS is both a partner of AMD and nVidia for its graphics products. Today we'll be looking at one of ASUS' high end nVidia GeForce GTX 680 based products. One step below the flagship of ASUS' GTX 680 series, the GTX680-DC2O-2GD5 has most of the same ASUS exclusive features as their top dog: the DirectCU II cooler and 10 power phases coupled with the DIGI+ VRM. The only difference is a smaller factory overclock.
At first glance, the GTX680-DC2O-2GD5 is a beast. While most high end gaming video cards are now dual slot designs, ASUS' GTX 680 is even beefier with a three slot height. Browsing the flagship products from ASUS' other product lines reveals a consistent colour scheme of black with red accents. This GTX 680 is no different with most of the video card in black, including the fans, the metal shroud and the PCB. The shroud is adorned with a car-like set of red racing stripes.
