  • Conclusion: The factory settings on the N680GTX Lightning comes with a factory overclock of 1110MHz (with 1167MHz Boost) on the core clock, while the memory remains the same at 6008MHz (effective). The core clock speeds for reference Nvidia design for the GTX 680 is 1006MHz (with 1058MHz Boost). That’s a factory overclock of 10% on the core clock by MSI over Nvidia.
