Point of View/TGT announces GTX 680 cards

Written by Slobodan Simic

Reference available, couple of TGT OCed coming


Point of View and its TGT overclocking team have announced its own GTX 680 graphics cards. It appears that, in addition to the reference clocked GTX 680, POV's TGT team is preparing four more cards that will feature some sort of factory overclock.

There is nothing new to write about the reference design card as these all use the same Nvidia dual-slot blower-fan cooler and work at 1006MHz for the GPU with 1058MHz Boost and have 2GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 6008MHz and paired up with a 256-bit memory interface.

The more interesting are the POV/TGT factory overclocked cards and according to our favorite price-search engine, POV/TGT will have four different cards. The lineup starts with the POV/TGT GTX 680 Performance Boost card, that will most likely feature a heftier GPU boost. We are guessing here as POV/TGT haven't officially announced these cards.

The next one is the TGT Charged Edition followed by the TGT Ultra Charged Edition. Both should feature a hefty factory overclock. Unfortunately, every factory OC BIOS now has to be certified by Nvidia so we aren't sure when will these actually be available.

The last but not least is the POV/TGT GTX 680 Beast Watercooled Edition. We at least managed to score a picture of this card but specs are still unknown. We are guessing that POV/TGT are still tweaking it to find a best possible stable factory overclock. The card is paired up with Aquacomputer's Aquagrafx full cover waterblock that weill certainly do a good job in cooling this card. We also managed to find out that the official suggested retail price is expected to be somewhere around €650 including VAT.

The reference Point of View GTX 680 is already available in Europe with a lowest price of €485,82 at Ditech.de.
