Micro-Star International, like so many other IT companies, often launches hardware products in Japan without doing the same anywhere else.
The new GeForce GTX 680 Lightning-L
graphics card is one item so far only up for sale in that country.
It is a cheaper version of the GeForce GTX 680 Lightning, with a clock speed of 1,019 MHz / 1,084 MHz GPU Boost.
That makes it faster than the reference adapter (1,006 MHz / 1,058 MHz) but slower than the original Lightning (1,110 MHz / 1,176 MHz).
As for the rest, the adapter has a dual-fan cooler and four display outputs (dual-DVI, HDMI and DisplayPport). No price is known yet.
Overall, the card could be a nice consolation prize for whomever can't afford or won't be lucky enough to score one of the few GeForce Titan boards on February 18
