XFX showcased 680 LT SLI

CEBIT 2007:
Crippled Nforce 680I pixelized


XFX wants to make a lot of noise with Fatal1ty and we saw Jonathan playing around XFX boot and fragging some butts.  If you didn’t get yourself arrested by XFX police girls you would be able to take a picture of a new stuff that is coming from this company.


The most interesting one is of course Mother board how XFX calls it branded as 680LT SLI. This is nothing more than 680I stripped for some features. The board looks very reference to me and you can notice that two PCIe 16X are far from each other and there will be a lot of place for two 8800 GTX dual slot cards.

The board also has two PCI slots but its clear that if you have two 8800 dual slot cards inside that you will lose one PCI slot. You can plug four memory modules DDR2 only of course.

The board supports socket 775 CPUs only and it is designed by Nvidia. Lets simply say it’s a reference board as much as EVGA is reference but with a nice XFX sticker on.

Only other thing that XFX had to show was Fatal1ty Geforce 7600 GT card clocked at 650 MHz but this baby has a small life expectancy as it will get swiped by 8600 GTS any day now, or let's be precise and say in three weeks time.  The only catch is that the card is passively cooled.
