Based on ASUS DirectCU, which uses copper heat pipes in direct contact with the GPU core for up to 20% cooler performance, DirectCU II adds a custom cooler that uses twin 100mm fans for a massive 600% increase in airflow on HD 6970, HD 6950, GTX 580, and GTX 570 DirectCU II cards. ASUS has also launched the GTX 560 Ti DirectCU II TOP graphics card with dual 80mm fans for the best performance in its segment through doubled air power.
The ASUS ROG Zephyrus M16 GU603H is truly a beast of a machine when it comes to performing under heavy loads. While there is still room for improvement on the graphics side, 1080p gaming on Ultra High settings above 60FPS is great by any means. You’re not always able to make the most of its 165Hz panel, but it’s still great to have. The only downside to the newly-introduced Intel Core i9 CPU is that there is quite a steep jump over previous Zephyrus gaming laptops.
