    EVGA has today officially introduced a fresh pair Kepler cards, the GeForce GTX 680 SC Signature and GeForce GTX 680 SC Signature+ which feature a 5 phase PWM design, 8-pin and 6-pin PCIe power connectors (stock models come with two 6-pin plugs), and increased frequencies - 1084 MHz (1006 MHz stock) for the base clock, 1150 MHz for the boost clock (1058 MHz) and 6208 MHz (6008 MHz) for the 2 GB of on board GDDR5 memory.

    These two tweaked GTX 680s also have 1536 CUDA Cores, a 256-bit memory interface, PCI-Express 3.0 support, SLI and 3D Vision Surround capabilities, and four display outputs - two DVI, one HDMI and one DisplayPort. The GeForce GTX 680 SC Signature has a price tag of $529.99 while the GeForce GTX 680 SC Signature+, which comes equipped with a backplate, costs $549.99. Neither model is available at this time.

    $530 or $550 for a video card.

    This world has gone insane.

    If this comes with an 8-pin, does that mean the current limit is also raised so the card won't throttle as quickly?

    Very nice, it looks great, and the pricing isn't too shabby.

    It's not clear what the difference between the two cards is.

    I have to agree. Looks very basic with no character at all other than the white strip with a frigging logo written across it.

    Well did you want some type of robotic looking transformer type cooler? You also got LED's in and around your case?
    No disrespect but I'm going to guess your age. Is it under 22 years old... Am i Right?

    LOL

    That's the first thing that came to mind to the kids who don't like sleek and classy.

    They want loud orange LED rainbow pastel honda civic with GT wings looking type GPU's.

    Yes, of course. I missed that bit despite reading it twice, lol.

    Nah, it's "understated", like all things of quality are. :laugh:

    Yeah, it looks kinda boring and functional, but I don't mind it. I would have preferred a dash of colour, though.

    It's classy. It could be more interesting, but at least it's not adolescent-chic.

    In short Ricers :laugh: On topic - this looks good, and will look good on any case with a window. Even those 90 degrees Silverstone cases.

    Exactly.
    Classy and sophisticated makes a statement with this card; it performs very well, and is powerful. The understated cooler design accentuates that very thing, which reinforces its capability.

    Having cards, or cases, or even cars that look like race cars or transformers gets old really really fast, as in 1-2 years fast. That's teenager-grade trash design.

    Need not to worry LC, the cheapest GTX 680 where I live is $700.

    Well the world has been insane, there's been high end $500 GPUs for awhile now.

    If anything, $500 today is a lot less than $500 a few years ago. So technically it's cheaper than it ever was.

    I don't care what the hell the damn thing looks like, as long as it performs well. Saying that, however, I must also say that (IMHO) the one cooling fan does not inspire confidence in me in its cooling abilities. After seeing the monsters from Zotac (2 massive cooling fans with an enlarged PCB) and Gigabyte (3 even bigger cooling fans), they make this EVGA look rather tame. Hopefully I'll be proven wrong when the reviews are out.

    I also hope ASUS will release a MARS version of the 680, now THAT will be a killer graphics card! :cool:
