Gigabyte GeForce GTX 680 SOC review -
At the top side you can see two SLI connectors should you desire the follow the rather expensive multi-GPU road. However due to the size, you could never utilize more than two of them.
Also make not of the fact that the card has been strengthened with a metal back plate. lots of little meshes in there for cooling, but due to it's size and weight the card definitely needed that little extra stability.
Connectivity wise you'll get four connectors, two dual-link DVI connectors supporting all high-resolution monitors and all the way to the left you can see an HDMI (1.4a) connector and one DisplayPort connector. The top part has been kept open with a wide mesh for ventilation so that the card can exhaust hot air.
At the top side of the card there is a lot going on. We see that the card uses two 8-pin headers. Each one delivers 150W and add to that another 75W though the PCIe slot. It should be plenty sufficient for any overclocking session.
Hard to see, so we zoom in a little you can spot a small 2-way BIOS switch. Flick it, power up and you have activated the normal, or factory overclocking. We'll talk about them in our overclocking segment though.
