A Closer Look
ASUS’s Dual card uses two large axial tech fans embedded in a shroud that has brushed metal and ridged accents.
The card also has a full cover backplate that features the same ridge and brushed finish but some of the area is slotted to see the PCB underneath and to let heat out via convection.
The NV-Link connector makes a return but is protected under a rubber cap by default.
The large cooler takes up nearly 3 slots. Power is provided by an 8+6 pin inlet.
The edges of the cooler shroud feature a matching ridged pattern.
The rear I/O bracket is only two slots but is fully vented even though very little air from the cooler will reach it. All ports are capped with rubber plugs out of the box.
You get a trio of Display Port 1.4 connections and a single HDMI 2.0.
