Thanks for the screenshots. And for the GetPhysicallyInstalledSystemMemory function. Will use it!

Yep I received this feedback: on systems like yours, only Kombustor with D3D render-paths can correctly use the right GPU.


Taipei, Taiwan (September 8, 2011) – with the release of the new HD 6770 DirectCU Silent,
ASUS has deployed the most powerful and advanced fanless graphics cards available.
Running totally silent and 16%* cooler than generic passive designs, the ASUS DirectCU
Silent series increases thermal performance and offers consumers a more reliable and longer
lasting experience that meets every graphics need, from casual multimedia to dedicated

DirectCU Silent technology offers 95%* larger heatsinks for 16%* cooler performance
ASUS thermal engineers have developed exclusive DirectCU cooling technology, integrating
direct-contact copper heat pipes that touch the GPU core for faster and more effective heat
dissipation, and thus lower temperatures and better performance. Based on these principles,
ASUS engineers have created the most effective 0dB silent graphics cards available.
DirectCU Silent designs have been applied on the GT 430, GT 440, GTS 450 and HD 6670
previously, and now on the HD 6770 model. Through intricate material processing and
intelligent molding, the heatsinks in DirectCU Silent cards offer up to 95%* larger surface
area and run around 16%* cooler than conventional passive cards, resulting in more stable
performance and longer lasting products.

Super Alloy Power enhances product longevity and performance
Based on a proprietary alloy mix developed in-house by ASUS, Super Alloy Power involves
filling power delivery components with a high endurance compound that can better resist
heat. Super Alloy Power components lead to 15%* faster performance, a wider overclocking
margin, and products that last 2.5* times longer than generic graphics cards.

Delivering cool and stable gaming performance
The DirectX® 11-compatible ASUS HD 6770 DirectCU Silent features 800 stream processors
and 40 texture units, plus 1GB of GDDR5 video memory. This means it is more than able to
handle HD gaming with details and effects set to medium or higher, which was unheard of
with previous silent cards. The HD 6770 DirectCU Silent is therefore an excellent choice for
consumers who require a quiet computing environment, and at the same time are unwilling to
sacrifice potent multimedia and gaming capabilities.

Product highlights

-ASUS DirectCU Silent graphics cards are the coolest silent choice currently available.
Totally quiet 0dB passive cooling creates a hushed usage environment and runs 16%*
cooler than conventional passive cards, presenting unmitigated multimedia and gaming

- The heatsink on the HD 6770 DirectCU Silent offers up to 95%* larger surface area than
its respective reference design for faster heat dissipation

- ASUS exclusive Super Alloy Power components offer a 15%* performance boost and
2.5* longer product lifespan

- The HD 6770 DirectCU Silent ships with 1GB of GDDR5 video memory to handle HD
gaming in high detail and with most effects turned on

3D-Tech News Around The Web / Re: NVIDIA Quadro driver 275.36 WHQL
« on: June 03, 2011, 09:05:18 AM »
I'm investigating...

It's been many years that I dream of a 3D interface to design, in a web browser, 3D objects with EMAO Workshop parameterized basic shapes.

I was looking for a simple way for users and based on available technology, without success, until now.

I recently discovered 3DVIA Dassault Systems technologies, that I started to handle. A simple plugin to install an application to develop 3D applications (experiences in the jargon of 3dvia) and a deposit on to make the experience accessible in a browser and voila... well ... almost, because you still have to master 3dviastudio, which requires a long learning time, which I prefer to devote to developing

So I decided to organize a competition 3dviastudio and I came in touch with Dassault ...

By the time to obtain information on the feasibility of the project, two new browsers were released: Firefox 4 and IE9. In addition to natively SVG support, these browsers support a new standard: WebGL. I also found a javascript library on and a sample application that can serve as a starting point on It works with IE9 and FF4! Go to see it, it's a great job. There are also other libraries, but I have not tried with IE9. Beginners should go to, where they can find step-by-step lessons ...

Two interesting technologies with two opposing philosophies of development: the 3dviastudio that provides developers with an advanced user interface, with extensive use of the mouse and keyboard, and that of WebGL that can be developed only (for now) with an Text editor ...

So there! I thought it would be interesting to put these technologies to compete through a competition ... 3D developers, if you're interested, take your mouse or your keyboard!

If you wish to sponsor this competition, do your prize proposals! Developers need to be motivated to provide the consistent effort (but exciting!) necessary to achieve the requested objectives.
