Zotac GeForce GTX680

Introduction

The Nvidia GTX 680, is currently the most powerful single GPU retail card for sale. Using a 28 nm manufacturing process, Nvidia has got some huge stock GPU and RAM speeds out of the card, so it will be interesting to see the performance for ourselves. We’ve heard good things about this card, so let’s check it out.

The bundle includes:

  • CD driver
  • Installation guide
  • DVI to VGA adaptor
  • Two Molex to 6 pin adaptors

It’s quite a small package; I’ve certainly seen more feature packed bundles anyway. You also get codes for Assassin’s Creed 1, 2 and Revelations. A nice bundle of titles that still look very pretty despite being a few years old.
