Point of View has prepared a very nice surprise of the video card enthusiasts. The company has just launched a special version of Nvidia’s GTX 680 video card that uses hand-picked GPUs and double the usual video memory along with a triple-fan cooler.
The new card from Point of View is officially called POV/TGT GeForce GTX 680 4GB UltraCharged “LOW LEAKAGE SELECTION” and these cards use selected GK104 Kepler
GPUs that naturally have lower than usual current leakage.
The low current leakage in the GK104 chips used for POV’s GeForce GTX 680 4GB UltraCharged allows the GPU to clock stably at much higher frequencies while generating less heat.
The default base frequency of the Kepler GPU mounted on POV’s new video cards is reportedly
an impressive 1111 Mhz.
We don’t have any info on the boost option and what frequency that could achieve, but the card is also considerably modified from the usual GTX 680 graphics adapter.
POV’s GeForce GTX 680 4GB UltraCharged comes with the company’s well-known triple-slot and triple-fan cooling system
, and it also packs 4 GB of GDDR5 video memory.
Nvidia’s GK104 Kepler GPU is built at TSMC in 28nm manufacturing technology. It has around 3.5 billion transistors and uses a 256-bit memory BUS to connect to the standard 2 GB of GDDR5 memory.
The GPU excels in graphics and gaming while having abysmal double precision floating point
performance, but it is likely a design decision from Nvidia itself.
The GeForce GTX 680 4GB UltraCharged is priced at 600 EUR for European buyers and that means that Americans will have to shell out about $743 for the “low leakage” version.
