ASUS GeForce GTX 760 DirectCU II Pictured

Ahead of its launch, a press-shot of ASUS' GeForce GTX 760 DirectCU II graphics card (model: GTX760-DC2OC-2GD5) was leaked to the web. This is the same exact card that showed up on the radar of European price aggregator, last week. 

The picture reveals a card with a compact PCB, and a slightly compacted new-generation DirectCU II cooler, which made its debut with the GTX 770/780 DirectCU series. The cooler uses a combination of 8 mm and 10 mm-thick nickel-plated copper heat pipes to draw heat directly from the GPU die, conveying it to a dense aluminum fin-stack, that's ventilated by a pair of 80 mm spinners. 

The DirectCU II series will likely be available in a reference clock-speed base model, featuring 980 MHz core, 1033 MHz GPU Boost, and 6.00 GHz memory; and the OC variant pictured below, which reportedly features 1006 MHz core, and 1072 MHz GPU Boost, while leaving the memory untouched. As usual, the card is expected to be priced in the $250 to $300 range.
