ASUS GTX 680 Graphics Card Powers Smoother and More Detailed Gaming.
The first 28nm design from NVIDIA comes in a complete package by way of the ASUS GTX 680 graphics card, featuring true next generation power and all-new NVIDIA GPU Boost frequency modulation. ASUS GPU Tweak helps gamers and overclockers make the most of this powerhouse card through a flexible and intuitive interface, while NVIDIA Adaptive Vertical Sync promotes smoother games with all details set to maximum. NVIDIA 3D Vision also returns, improved by 28nm efficiency and power.
DirectCU IIASUS utilizes copper heatpipes in direct contact with the GPU surface heat is transported and dissipated efficiently. DirectCU II is 20% cooler and 14dB quieter than reference – making it a low-noise high-performance graphics card.
VGA hotwireExclusive VGA hotwire allows you to plug and solder wires on the card's voltage regulators and accurately read and control Vcore, Vmem, and PLL voltages from ASS ROG MBs on a hardware level.
DIGI+ VRM with 10-phase Super Alloy PowerAcclaimed DIGI+ VRM has been applied via a massive 10-phase power design that uses digital voltage regulators to minimize power noise and enhance power efficiency, widen the voltage modulation range, and improve overall stability and longevity by 2.5 times longer than reference.
GPU TweakOverclocking is made real-time and intuitive with ASUS GPU Tweak utility. It not only allows you to optimize clock speeds, voltage and fan speeds on up to four graphics cards independently or simultaneously, you can also select between GPU Tweak’s Standard or Advanced modes depending on your level of experience. On top of these exciting tools, ASUS gives you more: Sync GPU clocks and voltages for easier overclocking, automatically check and update driver and BIOS versions, get detailed specs and actual card status with GPU-Z, 2D/3D switcher can lock the card in 3D for higher benchmarks and monitoring widget provides detailed multi-parameter info.
Kepler GPU ArchitectureNVIDIA's Kepler GPU architecture has been designed from the ground up not just for maximum performance in the latest DirectX 11 games, but 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 and power efficient graphics card.
NVIDIA GPU BoostUp 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 load 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.
