Like many other manufacturers ASUS released its very own version of the HD 7790 using a reference design PCB and a custom cooler. This last one is of course the now well known DirectCU II v2.0. Furthermore the card is shipped with a factory overclocking. The GPU runs at 1'075 MHz and the memory is clocked at 1'600 MHz, which are basically the same clocks as other overclocked cards on the market. So far we are not impressed, let's take a closer look anyway!

I guess if ASUS came up with a non reference PCB then the card would have become too expensive.

But don't you think adding a lot of goodies that make a card, that is supposed to be as cheap as possible, expensive and therefore pointless? Or in other words, How much more expensive should the card by maximum become, when adding a custom PCB?

Would you like a lightning, Matrix or Classified with a reference PCB ?
My point is, I have been used to see DCU2 Series cards with two things:
DCU2 Cooler + Kickass PCB/Power Design

Aint my fault if they named this series with the name of the cooler
