ASUS Radeon R9 280X DirectCU II gives new edge to hardcore gamers
DirectCU II achieves 20% lower temps with direct-contact copper heatpipes, plus 3X quieter and 6X more powerful twin 100mm fan operation. Exclusive CoolTech Fan drives wider airflow to keep critical components cool. DIGI+ VRM with 12-phase Super Alloy Power delivers precise digital power for superior efficiency, reliability, and performance. GPU Tweak helps you modify clock speeds, voltages, fan performance and more, all via an intuitive interface.
ASUS Exclusive Innovation
20% cooler and 3X* quieter
Exclusive DirectCU II thermal design includes a direct-GPU contact 10mm copper heatpipe and 220% larger dissipation area to boost heat removal efficiency. It performs 20% cooler and 3X quieter than reference.
*Equivalent to 14dB and performance varies depending on system configuration
Proprietary CoolTech fan consists of a hybrid blade and bearing design, with inner radial blower and outer flower-type blades. These provide multi-directional airflow to accelerate heat removal and enable highly stable graphics performance.
DIGI+ VRM with Super Alloy Power
30% less power noise and 2.5X greater durability
Acclaimed DIGI+ VRM has been applied via a 12-phase power design that uses digital voltage regulators to minimize power noise by 30%, enhance power efficiency by 15%, widen voltage modulation tolerance, and improve overall stability and longevity by 2.5 times over reference.
