So after teasing the bunch of us for quite some time now, EVGA 680 is out!
The thing is a beast with way better power delivery than the reference cards. Kingpin says that the cards will do 1400+ MHz easy on stock cooling. However its also priced like a beast, commanding more than a 30% premium over stock cards. The specs are listed below –

[quote]….1440mhz using stock air cooler and enhanced voltage, with more volts and beefier PWM, most Kepler GPUs are 1400 capable…[/quote]
Edit: The EVGA classified Edition has broken the 2GHz barrier. It was pushed to 2002MHz by Vince “k|ngp|n” Lucido using a core voltage of 1.212V and lots of LN2.
[quote]Card was overclocked to 2002 MHz with a voltage of 1.212. Although GPU-Z shows different clocks, we have a prove of EVGA’s Precision X overclocking utility readings. With such clocks card has reached unimaginable 16472 points in 3DMark11 in Performance Preset. For this particular test he used Intel I7-3960X @ 5.5GHz and 16GB of GDDR5 memory. The card was cooled by Tek-9 custom designed coolant containers, which were made for LN2 cooling. He did not post any pictures of the voltage-mods that were made to this card yet.
