Gigabyte GeForce GTX 680 OC edition review -
It has been a fairly short time ever since GeForce GTX 680 was released by NVIDIA. Meanwhile we have shown you the reference review, 2-way, heck even 3-way SLI articles and an overclocking tweaking guide just on this one product.

The card's base clock frequency is set at 1071 MHz while the memory runs stock. Anyway, have a quick peek at the product after which we'll dive into the GPU architecture, photo shoot, benchmarks and on an on ... next page please.
