triple fan cooling and OC at 1110MHz

It's a well known fact that the most popular graphics cards series usually had a few models that stood out and our today’s guest is Point of View/TGT’s GTX 680 Ultra Charged. The card comes with a hefty GPU overclock and proprietary design featuring both an improved power supply and triple fan cooling.

Geforce GTX 680 cards are based on GK104 graphics chip that is part of Nvidia’s Kepler architecture. Reference clocks for GTX 680 cards are at 1006MHz GPU, which is already quite high, but not maxed out. Thankfully, end users will benefit from this because now we see partners competing in who will make a meaner GTX 680. From what we’ve seen, running the GPU beyond 1100MHz would require better cooling than on the reference card. Of course, not all chips are made equal so it’s important to pick out the chips that can handle such clocks.

GTX 680 Ultra Charged comes with a 1110MHz GPU and it’s pretty much the maximum you can get with air cooling. Ultra Charged cards come with handpicked chips with low leakage and should enable for improved auto-overclocking with GPU Boost technology.
