Leadtek Intros 4 GB WinFast GeForce GTX 680

The newest in the parade of 4 GB GeForce GTX 680 graphics cards is made by Leadtek (model: WFGTX680-4G). The WinFast GTX 680 4 GB, for the most part, sticks to NVIDIA's reference design. Its cooling solution is completely carried over from it. From the looks of it, the PCB, too, is similar to the reference design, with the exception of double the memory amount.

The 4 GB of memory is spread across 16 GDDR5 memory chips. Leadtek's card sticks to NVIDIA reference clock speeds of 1006 MHz core, 1058 MHz GPU Boost, and 6008 MHz GDDR5-effective memory. The card draws power from two 6-pin PCIe power connectors. Slated for 1st August release, the Leadtek WinFast GeForce GTX 680 4 GB is priced at 59,800 JPY (US $765).

$765 :eek:

Why even bother. You can get 2 7970s ($738) for less than that.

Lame by even your knee-jerk standards. Quoted price is Yen- so here's a thought...it may be Japanese retail pricing. Price in Yen from a large outlet that sells both brands
HD 7970 in Yen...range up to 57970 ($743 - AIB OC) with most in the 40-50k range. :shadedshu

They seem to concentrate on the Asia-Pacific distribution area (much like Inno3D and Palit). They usually offer a full range of SKU's - albeit unspectacular reference models. Still -along with PNY- the major supplier of Quadro's

There is this thing called the internet.

Your using it now.

Find better deals. Unless your stubborn. Common sense works wonders.

My price comparison was just pointing that out. The currency equal more then 2 7970s in USA. US doesnt have the best pricing compared to the Asian market so i'm sure if he looks around in that region he can get better deal than the 2 7970s for $738 US I pointed out.

There...
Yeah....sure


...guy in Albania is going to be shopping for a 7970 in the U.S., but if he's shopping for a GTX 680 he'll shop in Japan -one of the worlds more expensive markets. Your arguments at this stage have barely a nodding acquaintanceship with sanity.

I agree, these 4gb 680's are a total ripoff. I've yet to see one review where the extra 2gb gives any kind of boost, yet they are charging $600 plus for these cards.

Really? When it doesnt even need it outside of multimonitor resolutions? And you can find 4GB cards with superior cooling than reference for $600.
