[Techpowerup.com] GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 680 WindForce 3X OC Graphics Card Pictured

GIGABYTE is ready with its first non-reference design GeForce GTX 680 graphics card, the GTX 680 WindForce 3X OC. The card makes use of an NVIDIA reference-design PCB (in GIGABYTE's signature shade of blue, of course), and its in-house design WindForce 3X cooling solution. The reference-design PCB is slightly-customized by GIGABYTE to have 8-pin and 6-pin PCIe power connectors (instead of dual 6-pin). By the looks of it, all five NVVDC phases are enabled (only 4/5 enabled on the retail reference-design GTX 680). Interestingly, GIGABYTE chose the 6-pin connector that's otherwise disabled on the reference design, instead of a piggy-backed 6+8 pin connector cluster. Sadly, dual-DVI port cluster ensures the PCB is still single slot-incapable.

Guru3D reports that the card will come with an out-of-the-box core clock speeds of 1071 MHz (base), 1124 MHz (boost, derived), and 1502 MHz (6.00 GHz GDDR5 effective) memory. Cooling the beast is GIGABYTE's tried and tested WindForce 3X, which uses three 80 mm PWM-controlled fans to ventilate a large complex aluminum fin heatsink, which draws heat from three 8 mm-thick copper heat pipes that span the entire length of the card. Display outputs include two dual-link DVI and one each of DisplayPort and HDMI. Pricing and availability are not known.
