GeForce GTX 660 Direct CU II Edition Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce GTX 660 Direct CU II Edition is a special edition of GeForce GTX 660.
The only new feature is the DirectCU II cooling solution which, according to Asus, is 20% more effective than the standard/reference cooler but doesn't affect performance directly and so the performance is exactly like the standard GeForce GTX 660. Gamers will want to buy the OC or TOP versions for superior performance.
