With or without backplate
it was pictured and detailed during the GTX 680 launch event, EVGA has now officially announced the latest members of its GTX 680 lineup, the EVGA GTX 680 SuperClocked Signature and GTX 680 SC Signature+ graphics cards. Both cards will feature factory overclocked settings and non-reference PCB.
As noted, both of the newely announced cards will be based on non-reference PCB with 5-phase VRM design and 8+6-pin PCI-Express power connector configuration. Both cards ended up with the same 1084MHz base and 1150MHz boost clock as well as 6208MHz 2GB GDDR5 memory clock. The reference ones are working at 1006MHz base, 1058MHz boost and 6008MHz for memory.
Both cards will use the same blower-style cooler that actually looks quite classy, without any bright colors and gimmicks. The EVGA GTX 680 SC will be available in Signature and Signature+ versions. The only difference is the use of a backplate on the Signature+ version and a US $20 higher price tag.
The EVGA GTX 680 SC Signature is listed at EVGA's web shop with a US $529.99 price
, while the GTX 680 SC Signature+ goes for US $549.99
. Unfortunately, both are still just listed with unknown availability date.
