MSI GeForce GTX 680 Twin Frozr III

Graphics Cards 1673 Published by

With a bit of luck this card arrives today here in the lab, but yeah as leaked yesterday they will be releasing a GTX 680 Twin Frozr III edition.

That said, the GPU has a base core speed of 1,058 MHz and a GPU Boost speed of 1,124 MH (dynamic overclocking technology akin to CPU's Intel Turbo Boost / AMD Turbo Core). For those who need a reminder, the reference clocks are 1,006 MHz and 1,058 MHz, respectively.

Moving on, the 2 GB of GDDR5 memory have an actual speed of 1,502 MHz and 6 GHz effective. As for connectivity, there are two dual-link DVI ports, an HDMI connector and a DisplayPort output. It has apparently been designed to perfectly fit the PCB (printed circuit board) and has two 70mm fans ventilating an aluminum fin stack. The heat is led away from the GPU and everything else that produces heat (VRM memory etc.) by five 8mm nickel-plated copper heatpipes.

All in all, the video controller isn't the strongest out there but, on the other hand, it doesn't need as much energy either, making do with two 6-pin PCI Express power connectors.
