ASUS RADEON R9 270X FEATURES
"The Asus Radeon R9 270x has DirectCU II graphics cards for better high end gaming with DirectCU II with precision shaped SSU heatpipes utilizes highly conductive copper and directly centered GPU placement to double cooling efficiency in the same space. TOP selected 1120MHz cores run 70MHz higher than reference for smoother gameplay. Digi+ VRM with 8 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."
"The Asus Radeon R9 270x has DirectCU II with SSU architecture with 20% cooler and 3X quieter. The Asus Radeon R9 270x has graphics card engineering leads the industry once again with the introduction of DirectCU II SSU thermal design. Comprising two S and one U shapes, the new heatpipes are precision shaped for optimal efficiency and heat transference. They are also nickel plated to minimize oxidization, with their mid section now placed directly over the GPU die. This design shortens heat transfer travel to lower thermal resistance and create bi directional flow for up to twice the cooling capacity in the same space as that required by existing graphics card cooler designs."
"The Asus Radeon R9 270x has High conductivity copper used in heatpipe formulation creates tube like vapor chambers, moving heat to a large aluminum heatsink that features extended fins for multiple points of dissipation. The assembly is further chilled by two high performance but carefully tuned and sound dampened fans for faster and quieter cooling."
"The Asus Radeon R9 270x has Digi+ VRM with Super Alloy Power with 30% less power noise and 2.5X greater durability acclaimed Digi+ VRM has been applied via a 8 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."
