For those of us who don’t have our periodic table of elements handy, Cu is the elemental symbol for copper. This approprietly named Video Card is not shy when it comes to that precious metal. With a full 164.5g of it used it promises to bring the core temperatures, a full 11% according to ASUS.
Although one would imagine some minor card tweaking now that the thermal issue is in better control, stock clocks are what this card will ship with. With 850mhz on the Core and 1200mhz on the Memory. The board is slightly redesigned however making it longer than ASUS’s more traditional HD5770 and its outputs remain similar with HDMI, D-Sub and DVI-D on the back.
It will remain to be seen just how well this new Card really is, but if their Matrix and Formula Series are any indication it will be quite good.
