    Here are the first pictures of PNY GeForce GTX 680 XLR8 Enthusiast Edition courtesy TecnoReviews. The pictures reveal the card to stick to NVIDIA reference-design of the GeForce GTX 680, with its signature XLR8 (sounds like "accelerate") Enthusiast Edition sticker design. According to the source, the card sticks to NVIDIA-reference clock speeds of 1006 MHz (base), 1056 MHz (boost), and 1500 MHz (memory). PNY's doesn't include "Bonus" trialware, but does include a free 3-month subscription of ESEA Premium (we assume this deal is only available to buyers in North America).

    Bonkers, I do believe you have to much time on your hands! Nice looking card, for a stock style cooler.

    Puts me in mind of BFG, such a shame they went out of business.

    LMAO!

    Their XL8R line goes back to the 8800 if I'm not mistaken, it's only a cheesy PR move as their parts aren't usually any different from other manufacturer's vanilla cards, that's a really lousy photoshop on the retail box btw...

    It's not very flattering. It appears good, then you realize none of that is on high AA and AF (which reduces any big lead to meh, and we're not getting the full extent of games on those settings on that review) and the games it scores high on have been heavily nvidia optimized.

    And missing BF3 among many other games. TDP is a lie. Oh, nvidia. You have to price it at 500 b/c the perf isn't there.
