]Exclusive: ASUS GTX 580 DirectCU II with more power and bigger cooler
ASUS is working on a custom version of NVIDIA's flagship GeForce GTX 580 and it promises something out of the ordinary. ASUS GeForce GTX 580 DirectCU II uses a custom made circuit board, which will result in a more powerful voltage compartment for the GF110 GPU and a manly cooler with two 100mm fans.

ASUS GeForce GTX 580 DirectCU II will make the fastest single-GPU evern more powerful and it all starts with a custom made circuit board. This was a must to fit the new power circuitry that bless the board with 8 separate GPU phases, which is two more than NVIDIA's reference design. Besides more phases, each phase will be capable of delivering more power than before and offer a lot higher max capacity.

ASUS GeForce GTX 580 DirectCU II specifications:

GF110 GPU
8 phase power supply for GPU
2 phase power supply for memory (1 draws from 8-pin and one from PCIe slot)
More efficient power supply with more power per phase
Highly efficient NEC power capacitor behind GPU
Dual 8-pin power connectors
DirectCU 2 cooler with 5 copper direct-contact heatpipes
Dual 100x20mm fans for low noise
Requires 3 expansion slots
Dual DVI outputs, HDMI and DisplayPort

One of the big questions that remains is the clock frequencies ASUS will be shipping with the card. It is often pretty conservative from factory, and instead lets the users push the cards using ASUS Voltage Tweak and similar solutions, but we of course hope for a big increase from the reference.

The launch date and price was not revealed, but we will return when we learn more about ASUS GeForce GTX 580 DirectCU II.

Note
ASUS also developed the same cooler for HD 6970 which I posted here

Yes I wish Nvidia would include this in new cards. Surely it can't be that difficult.

Looks pretty similar to the Asus ATI monster they are creating too.

What is so good about DP that the normal connectors can't handle?

It's like why use IDE when you have SATA.

So which of GTXs (570) have DP connections on them? I know Gainward has one that should be coming out soon...
