Gigabyte GeForce GTX 680 Super OverClock Review

HotHardware
31 January 2013
  • Conclusion: Fully custom high-end graphics cards usually command a hefty premium. In the case of the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 680 Super OverClock, that is true to an extent, but this monster is actually priced competitively; as of this writing, this card can be had for $479 after rebate (regular price: $509). Considering the fact that much lower-clocked reference GeForce GTX 680 cards sell for about $459 currently, the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 680 Super OverClock is priced pretty well.
  • Pros: Great Performance, Good Overclocker, Competitive Price, Powerful Cooler
  • Cons: Three-Slots Wide, "Whiney" Fans

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 680 4GB

Legion Hardware
11 December 2012
  • Summary: For those gaming on a single monitor the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 680 4GB has nothing to offer in the way of extra performance over a 2GB card. Having initially tested at 2560x1600 we found absolutely no difference in performance and this was also the case at the triple-monitor resolution of 5040x1050 which features almost 30% more pixels.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 680 SOC review

The Guru of 3D
5 August 2012
  • Summary: There's been a lot of chatter in the community about the SOC editions with the massive cooler and 5 fans. Honestly I have to hand it to Gigabyte, I love the innovation and doing things differently --  so for that alone I applaud them. The SOC edition works well, it's amongst the fastest clocked GTX 680 cards we have tested. The cooling performance is definitely impressive.

KFA² GeForce GTX 680 LTD OC 2 GB

techPowerUp!
2 August 2012
  • Summary: The KFA² Geforce GTX 680 LTD OC is one of the fastest GTX 680 cards available on the market. Thanks to its large GPU overclock out of the box, the card is 8% faster than the GTX 680 reference design and 5% faster than the recently released AMD HD 7970 GHz Edition. Compared to the last-generation dual-GPU GTX 590, the card provides similar performance - what an improvement with just a single graphics processor!
  • Pros: Overclocked out of the box, Excellent GPU overclocking potential, Quiet, Voltage measuring points, Up to four active displays now, makes Surround gaming possible with one card, Native full-size DisplayPort output, Support for PCI-Express 3.0 and DirectX 11.1, Support for CUDA and PhysX
  • Cons: High price, No dual-link DVI - expensive adapter needed, Memory not overclocked, High power consumption in non-gaming states, Dynamic OC can't be turned off, Manual overclocking more complicated than before, Voltage measuring points hard to reach, No technology similar to AMD's ZeroCore power

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 680 OC - Kepler rides again

HEXUS
15 June 2012
  • Conclusion: : There's nothing intrinsically wrong with Gigabyte's GeForce GTX 680 OC card, save for an ultra-aggressive fan-speed profile, but the enthusiast graphics card market is now such that a near-£500 outlay demands perfection in every regard.

Galaxy GeForce GTX 680 2GB Graphics Card Review

PC Perspective
17 April 2012
  • Excerpt: When the N VIDIA GeForce GTX 680 launched in March we were incredibly impressed with the performance and technology that the GPU was able to offer while also being power efficient.  Fast forward nearly a month and we are still having problems finding the card in stock - a HUGE negative towards the perception of the card and the company at this point.

MSI GeForce GTX 680 Lightning 2GB

Tweak.dk
4 May 2013
  • Summary: Det har været en fornøjelse at teste MSI GeForce GTX680 Lightning 2GB. Kortet er det ypperste MSI kan lave, og det må siges, at de har gjort arbejdet godt. De har lavet et kort, der næsten slår alle andre i alle tests, og så med en køleløsning, der er en konge værdig. Dog er prisen en smule pebret, men det bedste af det bedste koster.
  • Pros: Ydelse, Køleløsning, Kvalitet, Design
  • Cons: Prisen

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 680 4 GB OC

Noticias 3D
4 March 2013
  • Summary: No podemos ser categóricos, pero queda claro que, siempre bajo nuestra plataforma de pruebas y por lo tanto con los juegos utilizados y la máxima resolución que podemos utilizar (2560x1440), no se necesitan más de 2 GB de VRAM. Por lo que las diferencias que hemos visto en los resultados existen, pero en ningún caso las otorgamos a la cantidad de memoria que exhibe la GTX 680 de 4 GB que hemos probado por parte de Gigabyte.
  • Pros: Overclock de fábrica, Queda margen de overclock, Excelentes temperaturas, Muy silenciosa, 4 GB de VRAM para situaciones muy extremas
  • Cons: Extras muy limitados, Requiere de 3 slots de expansión, Cuesta justificar la necesidad de un modelo de 4 GB

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 680 SOC

Noticias 3D
4 March 2013
  • Summary: Algo que nos llama la atención es que ambos perfiles de BIOS lleven overclock en la memoria y por lo tanto en ninguno de ambos casos podemos obtener el rendimiento de una GeForce GTX 680 de referencia. Así pues, el overclock que viene de fábrica hace subir la velocidad del núcleo de 1.006 a 1.137 MHz (boost de 1.059 a 1.202 MHz), esto significa un incremento de 131 MHz (143 MHz) lo que significa un 13% de potencia más.
  • Pros: Importante overclock de fábrica, Buena capacidad de overclock extra manual, Buenas temperaturas, Tarjeta muy robusta y de excelentes acabados
  • Cons: Demasiado ruidosa por culpa de los ventiladores escogidos, Tamaño y peso excesivos

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 680 Super Overclock – Innovatives Grafikmonster?

Technic 3D
7 August 2012
  • Summary: Auf der Gigabyte Tech Tour 2012 konnten wir uns im Mai bereits einen Eindruck von Gigabytes kommendem Gaming-Boliden machen. Die Gigabyte GTX 680 Super Overclock ist ein echtes Schwergewicht und fällt vor allem durch den sehr exotischen Kühler auf, den wir so noch nicht gesehen haben. Als Premium-Grafikkarte bringt die GTX 680 Super Overclock natürlich noch weitere Features mit, darunter ein spezielles BIOS für LN2-Overclocker.
  • Pros: Performance, Kühlerdesign, Features/Übertaktungsspielraum
  • Cons: Kühlerlautstärke
