GeForce GTX 680 Asus DirectCU II 4GB Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 680 Asus DirectCU II 4GB Edition is a Special Edition of NVIDIA's High-End GeForce GTX 680, created by Asus.


Overclock: Central Unit
None.


Overclock: Memory Clock
None.


Frame Buffer
The Frame Buffer was doubled to 4GB. This would prove useful in a few circumstances because some modern 3D Games require 4GB of Memory for Textures.
However, because the GPU itself is too weak to work under other circumstances in which 4GB of Memory are needed - such as 1600p Gaming, a Larger Frame Buffer is mostly a Gimmick.


Cooling Solution
DirectCU II: DirectCU thermal design utilizes direct contact copper heatpipes so heat is dissipated efficiently, delivering a 20% cooler and vastly quieter performance than reference..


Performance
Benchmarks indicate no performance over the reference GeForce GTX 680.
