Colorful Makes GeForce GTX 680 iGame Kudan Official

Colorful announced its most powerful GTX 680 named "iGame GTX680-2G Kudan". The first "iGame Kudan" graphics card was released last year, and it was a GTX560Ti. Now Colorful uses the design concept on the latest GK104 chip.

Like the first generation, iGame GTX680 Kudan equipped a huge cooler which requires three slots and assembles three fans, one is 90mm, and others are 80mm and with "Shark Bionic" design in order to reduce the noise. Below the triple fans, there are heat-sinks which are crossed by ten 6mm heat-pipes. A 3mm steel plate is covered on the back of the PCB in order to enhance the PCB and improve the heat radiation.

The card is based on Silver Plated Technology of the PCB, and it has 8 phases native VRM, but when you install the Power-kit in the accessories, it will provide extra six phases of VRM. This kind of design draws power from two 8-pin power connectors. The VRM is controlled by an uP6208AM PWM chip, and the modulation range is from 0.1MHz to 1.5MHz.

There are two BIOS chips are built on the main PCB and each of them stores a set of clock. The clocks are controlled by the button on the rear plate. When users press the button, the clock will be boosted to 1059MHz/6008MHz from default clock (1008MHz/6008MHz). However, when you install the extra Power-Kit into the slot on the back of the PCB, the clock will boost to 1110MHz/6208MHz!

With the huge packaging (820mm H X 165mm L X140mm W), there are three sets of accessories provided for user's customization.

The first set is called Air-Kit, which is assembled by five detachable heat pipes that draw heat from the main heat-sink. The Air-Kit can be installed to the corresponding position that previously prepared on the graphics card, and can efficiently reduce the heat of the graphics card.

The second set is called Power-Kit, which is introduced in the previous paragraph. The Power-Kit provides extra six phases of VRM, and equips the strongest BIOS; it is the first choice when users overclock this card after installing the Power-Kit.

The third set is called Color-Kit, which is made up by acrylic paints and brushes. It is provided for those users who have interest of painting on the shell of the cooler.

Colorful iGame GTX680 Kudan is first provided in Asia, and will be also available in other regions later.

Does anyone else feel this is *slightly* overkill?
Also, one critical piece of information is missing from the article: pricing. I'd assume the iGame edition is going to be about the price of an iPhone 4S (750...850€).

This should be cheaper than a fully assembled card. I mean you waste your time on putting it together right?

I always ask myself what does it mean the i before names.
Iphone, Ipad, Ipod, iGame and a lot more of which i don't like the I!
Anyone knows anything?
Seems really stupid

See it says it will be eventually in other regions.........but one of those regions will never be the USA. I would love to buy from this company! I have drooled over their video cards for sometime but there is no way to order them here in the US.
It just frustrates me to them being reviewed over and over here. Grrrr :(

I think there's a limit to what an air cooled card could be and that's double slot for me, unless it is a dual GPU which has additional needs on cooling side.

This is too much, they've surpassed the line and watercooling is much much better than this.

You mean heat insulators. If they were conductors you'd want to keep it on your GPU.

Ah, I was thinking the paint kit was for painting your actual penis to make it look penis-ier, ala flames or such. :wtf:

Nah. It's for the gfx card. You can also paint on the side of the case text "MINE IS BIGGER". Just to make it clear to others :D
