ASUS has silently launched a new GeForce GTX 960 graphics card with a DirectCU3 cooling solution.
Dubbed the GeForce GTX 960 DC3, the card features 2GB of GDDR5 memory. As you would expect from a card equipped with DirectCU3, it comes factory overclocked with a core clock of 1228 MHz and boost clock of 1291 MHz. Memory speed remains the same as the reference design card at 7 GHz.
Rest of the specs are pretty similar to every other GeForce GTX 960 card out there. Based on the GM206 GPU, the GTX 960 DC3 includes 1024 Maxwell CUDA cores.
Display connectors include three DisplayPort 1.2 ports, one HDMI 2.0, and a single DVI-I output.
The Asus GeForce GTX 960 DC3 is currently available in China for 1700 CNY, which is about $270. Expect the card to become available in other markets very soon.
