gone were the days where towering computer chassis reins supreme. these day smaller seems the better, but being compact limits what could be fitted within, especially when it comes to graphics card. the ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU Mini Graphics Card is born with the sole purpose of solving this woe. this little graphics powerhouse is designed to woo those who have been suffering from the limited internal real estate of a mini PC such as those use for home theater and any other compact rigs with mini ITX, or micro ATX main boards. this dual-slot card measures just 17cm (6.7 inches) – a good 7cm (2.8 inches) shorter than the reference GTX 670.

driving the graphics clockwork is of course, the NVIDIA GTX 670 GPU with 2GB worth of VRAM, and it utilizes DirectCU thermal design and CoolTech Fan for chilling out, keeping critical components cool without creating so much as a ding. accompanying the card is an exclusive tuning utility for the geek in you to pimp your heart out, letting you tweak parameters such as changing core, clock frequencies, fan speeds, voltages, as well as power consumption targets. sounds like a dream come true for every style-conscious geek cos’ finally you can have a small, sleek gaming or home entertainment rig without sacrificing the graphics performance.
