Serious gamers require serious gear. That’s why the Super Overclock Series has been developed. All of the GPUs in these graphics cards have been cherry-picked for top performance, efficiency, and reliability. The innovative GPU Gauntlet Sorting selection process ensures that only the highest-performing GPU processors are used in these graphics cards. Coupled with Ultra Durable VGA boards, users can rest assured that the Super Overclock Series graphics cards won’t let them down as they step onto the digital battleground.
The GIGABYTE GV-N680SO-2GD ships with an NVIDIA GPU GeForce GTX 680, which combines high performance with exceptional power efficiency. GPU Boost dynamically boosts clock speed for extra performance. New anti-aliasing modes eliminate jaggies without sacrificing frame rates. And NVIDIA Surround lets you game on three monitors from a single card. Furthermore, the GV-N680SO-2GD card is equipped with the WINDFORCE 5X thermal design, perfect for gamers to achieve an unbeatable gaming performance and to meet a higher standard more easily.
Ultra Durable VGA+ Gigabyte’s ultra Durable VGA+ includes everything Ultra Durable VGA offers, including a two-ounce copper PCB, tier one Samsung and Hynix memory, Japanese solid capacitors, ferrite core chokes and lower RDS (on) MOSFET for lower GPU temperature, better overclocking capability, and less power switching loss. To make things even better, ultra Durable VGA+ adds five proadlizers to deliver 1.6x purer power than traditional power designs (0 proadlizers).
WINDFORCE 5X thermal design WINDFORCE 5X features up to five fans. It uses an anti-turbulence pull airflow system, so the air comes in the bottom of the card along the motherboard PCIe slot, and then up and out the top of the card. Moreover, WINDFORCE 5X is equipped with nine 6mm copper heat pipes and a unique vapor chamber to strengthen the speed of heat dissipation.
OC GURU ll Brand-new instinctive user interface makes it easier to monitoring and adjusting all important settings. Users can set up MONITORING, GPU CLOCK, MEMORY CLOCK, FAN, GPU VOLTAGE, Memory VOLTAGE, OSD, ONLINE SUPPORT and update driver, BIOS directly.
Kepler GPU Architecture NVIDIA's Kepler GPU architecture has been designed from the ground up not only for maximum performance in the latest DirectX 11 games, but also for optimal performance per watt. The new SMX streaming multiprocessor is twice as efficient as the prior generation, and the new geometry engine draws triangles twice as fast. The result is world-class performance and the highest image quality in an elegant, power-efficient graphics card.
NVIDIA GPU Boost Up until now, GPUs have operated at a fixed clock speed when playing 3D games, even if they have the potential to run faster. GPU Boost intelligently monitors graphics work loads, and increases the clock speed whenever possible. The result is that the GPU always performs at its peak, and you get the highest framerate possible.
NVIDIA Adaptive Vertical Sync Nothing is more distracting than framerate stuttering and screen tearing. The first tends to occur when framerates are low, the second when framerates are high. Adaptive V-Sync is a smarter way to render frames. At high framerates, V-sync is enabled to eliminate tearing; at low framerates, it's disabled to minimize stuttering. It gets rid of distractions so you can get on with gaming.
