Review:
The Beast it is

A couple days ago we published a preview of Point of View/TGT GTX 680 Beast graphics card and now it’s time to follow it up with a full review. Point of View/TGT GTX 680 Beast’s GPU runs at high 1163MHz. In our preview, we said that the card is the fastest Kepler based card on the market, but our readers have informed us that KFA2 GTX 680 LTD v1 OC is faster and has a 1202MHz GPU. Note however that Point of View/TGT GTX 680 Beast is still one of the fastest cards around.

The GTX 680 LTD OC v1 is a limited edition card, which is naturally available in limited quantities due to the fast CPU speed (but the KFA2 GTX 680 LTD OC v2 with the GPU at 1150MHz is available in sufficient quantities). According to TGT, the number of chips that qualify for Beast cards is sufficient to cover the demand.

Quality and warranty are perhaps even more important than the actual overclock itself. Since we’re talking about Point of View/TGT here, we must say that we haven’t had any bad experiences with their cards.  

TGT has a strict selection and only the best GPUs end up on Beast branded cards. This is how the company makes sure that Beast-branded cards not only run at high clocks, but have overclocking headroom as well. Additionally, this is what made the long warranty possible.

Beast GPU comes overclocked by 157MHz and such feats require adequate cooling. TGT opted for its tried and true triple fan cooler, which we’ve seen on GTX 680 UltraCharged cards.
