The huge GTX 680 Super OverClock WindForce 5 X of Gigabyte graphics card, that we had the chance to manipulate with the arrival at our premises of the marketing manager in charge of the graphics of the mark is in imminent approach.
Indeed, exposed to the Computex 2012, the Mastodon, which reminds somewhat an aircraft carrier, with its large room steam copper, his nine heat-pipes of 6 mm, its enormous radiator covering all the PCB and its five lateral fans is being finalized in the labs of Gigabyte and should be available current July.
The constructor guaranteed a very efficient cooling but what about the noise with the use of small type Server (40 mm) rack fans known for their noisy operation at full? According to the manufacturer, the map will use its fans based on the workload that she will conduct so at rest will be all disabled but no specific data has been provided to the level of noise in load when five fans, are an item to verify therefore test!
Gigabyte has not communicated precisely on the frequencies GPU and memory which will be proposed (talking 1137/1202 Mhz for the GPU and 1600 Mhz for the 2 GB of GDDR5) for a performance gain estimated at less than 10% from the GTX 680 of reference.
The map will occupy 3 PCI-Express slots in the case and will require two 8-pin PCI-e connectors to work. The price was not disclosed but can be expected at a relatively high rate.
