Hail to the New Superclocked King of Single GPU Video Cards
Welcome the most powerful Single GPU that NVIDIA has ever made. The NVIDIA GTX 680 GPU has 1,536 Shader Processors, 3 times as many as the GTX 580's 512!
By using 28mn die technology, the GTX 680 only uses 80% as much power and runs cooler and quieter than the GTX 580 it replaces. Doubling the number of Texture Units from 64 to 128 has boosted the GTX 680's Texture Fill Rate by an amazing 260% compared to the GTX 580, because the Shader Processors also run at a higher clock rate too!
This incredibly powerful GK104 Kepler GPU is even faster because EVGA has Superclocked it. This particular version of the Superclocked EVGA GTX 680 has a new Backplate that stiffens the card right behind the PC Board, increasing it's reliability and longevity. You know you can handle the toughest games with the toughest video card!
As games get more demanding, you can run always 2 or 3 GTX 680s in SLI and maintain your tactical advantage!
Here is a look at the Unique EVGA Backplate that is installed behind the PC Board of this video card.
NVIDIA SMX Engine
The brand new processing engine which delivers twice the performance per watt compared to previous generations.
NVIDIA GPU Boost Technology
Dynamically maximizes clock speeds to push performance to new levels and bring out the best in every game. This technology is based on the temperature and power draw of your card, as well as what application you're running. The card will tailor its clock speeds for maximum performance and longevity.
Enables lightning fast anti-aliasing in a huge variety of games with the simple click of a mouse.
Get the image quality of 8X MSAA with the performance hit of only 2X MSAA. This means a smoother gaming experience without the loss in FPS normally associated with this level of eye candy.
NVIDIA Adaptive Vertical Sync
Adjusts VSync to your monitor's native refresh rate for the smoothest gameplay possible.
Frame Rate Target
Set a target Frame Rate with EVGA Precision X and your card will automatically adjust the power/performance to meet that target. This feature delivers the ultimate in efficient gaming.
NVIDIA 3D Vision Surround3
Now you only need one good, single GPU, to play on up to three monitors plus keep one accessory display for other 2D apps!
PCI Express 3.0
Offers double the bandwidth of PCI Express 2.0, for the highest data transfer speeds to allow for maximum performance in bandwidth-hungry games and 3D applications. The GTX680 is still backwards compatible with all existing PCI Express motherboards.
Large dual, triple, or even center fan coolers seem to be all the rage these days, but why do they throw extra heat inside your Chassis? Why do the EVGA GTX 680 video cards only have 1 fan by comparison?
EVGA GTX 680 air cooled video cards only use a single fan to make sure all the hot air the comes off your video card is exhausted outside. EVGA GTX 680 video cards do not exhaust air into your case like competitor's multifan cooling solutions, keeping your Computer's case cooler so you can game longer and harder!
Attention to Quality
EVGA's attention to quality is worth noting, from performance to appearance, even down to the package contents and protection. EVGA cards ship with cover caps over the critical components, eliminating worries about any dust build-up or damage that could occur before you take your new EVGA GTX 680 video card home.
A unique EVGA Exclusive Backplate looks awesome and offers increased PC Board rigidity, strength and longevity.
