ASUS has made the GTX 760 Direct CU Mini official according to TechPowerUp. The ASUS GTX 760 Direct CU Mini (model: GTX760-DCMOC-2GD5) is the successor to the GTX 670 Direct CU Mini and very little has changed. The graphics card is literally identical other than it swaps out the GTX 670 GPU for a GTX 760 GPU. The graphics card has a 170mm long PCB that makes it suited for small form factor cases and mini-ITX builds. The PCB features a 5 phase VRM that draws power from a single 8 pin PCIe connector. A vapor chamber plate draws heat away from the GPU and is cooled by ASUS’ new CoolTech fan design. On this particular unit reference clock speeds of 980MHz core, 1033MHz GPU boost and 6GHz memory are stuck to.
If we draw comparisons directly to the GTX 670 Direct CU Mini we can expect this card to be around 5-7.5% slower due to the weaker GPU and lack of an overclock. ASUS are expected to price this card at around $299 which is $50 more than a normal GTX 760. The ASUS GTX 670 Direct CU Mini currently costs around $330 but Newegg currently sell it for $305. If you can find the ASUS GTX 670 Direct CU Mini for a similar price then it would definitely be a better buy than this. This new card from ASUS is expected to compete directly with Galaxy’s GTX 760 Mini.
