    KFA2 announced today the GeForce GTX 680 manufactured with the fastest, most efficient GPU ever built. The new ultra-high performance design features and the latest technologies from NVIDIA, including GPU Boost for faster performance, TXAA and Adaptive VSync for smoother visuals and gameplay, and support for up to 4 displays with triple screen 3D Vision Surround on a single card for a richer gaming experience.

    The KFA2 GeForce GTX 680 also benefits from several improvements to cooling design. The fan is composed of acoustic dampening materials for a significant noise reduction and more enjoyable gaming experience. The custom fin stack is both shaped for better airflow and embedded with a high efficiency heat pipe to effectively cool the card without circulating heat back into the system. The thermal output of the GeForce GTX 680 has also been greatly reduced with a TDP of 195 W for cooler and more energy efficient operation.

    The new SMX architecture present in the KFA2 GeForce GTX 680 allows for a staggering 1536 CUDA cores- 3 times the number found in the flagship GeForce GTX 580 of the previous generation. Improved architecture coupled with almost 50% higher core and memory clocks results in an astounding level of pure gaming power. This extra performance is crucial for gamers who want to take advantage of the GeForce GTX 680's ability to simultaneously power up to 4 displays. Users will be able to game in NVIDIA 3D Vision Surround on up to 3 displays, and can add a 4th accessory display for email, chat, web browsing, and more without leaving the game. The card features a flexible assortment of outputs, including DVI-I, DVI-D, HDMI, and Display-Port, as well as an adapter for a VGA display.

    KFA2 Marketing Manager, Graham Brown, added: "This card represents a true milestone for gamers. NVIDIA's new architecture is packed with unique features specifically designed to give an outstanding gaming experience. The KFA2 GeForce GTX 680 is the one enthusiasts have been waiting for!"
