EVGA Rolls Out Pwnage 2 Mousepad

EVGA made an addition to its small lineup of gaming-grade Pwnage family of mousepads, with the Pwnage 2 (part number: E00B-00-000032). Not much different from the original Pwnage mousepad (E00B-00-000007), it launched with two other designs in June 2011, the Pwnage 2 features a slightly different surface graphic. Designed for laser and optical mice, the Pwnage 2 is designed with a low-friction surface for smooth glides, although EVGA didn't specify if it's specialized for speed or control. Its base is made of non-slip rubber. Its surface measures 13.75" x 10.25" (34.92 x 26 cm). At US $14.99 a pop, it's even priced the same as the original Pwnage.

EVGA Launches its GeForce GT 600 Series Products

EVGA launched its GeForce GT 600 portfolio, consisting of six models, four of which are based on the GeForce GT 610, and one each on the GeForce GT 620, and GeForce GT 630. The GeForce GT 630 packs 96 CUDA cores, 1 GB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 800 MHz (1.60 GHz GDDR3 effective) over a 128-bit wide memory interface, and a core clock speed of 810 MHz, with 1620 MHz CUDA core clock. The card utilizes a full-height PCB, with display outputs that include two DVI, and a mini-HDMI. Its single slot cooling solution uses a large, low-RPM fan.

The GeForce GT 620 is similar to the GT 630, including its board design and most of its specifications, but comes with lower clock speeds, at 700 MHz core, 1400 MHz CUDA cores, and 700 MHz (1.40 GHz GDDR3 effective) memory. Lastly, there are as many as four models based on the GeForce GT 610 chip, which are based on a half-height board, and a full-height one; with 1 GB of GDDR3 memory across a 64-bit wide memory interface that comes standard, and 2 GB variants of both. The full-height cards have two DVI and a mini-HDMI output, while the half-height ones have one each of DVI, HDMI, and D-Sub (analog). The GT 610 packs 48 CUDA cores, and clock speeds of 810/1620/1000 MHz (core/CUDA cores/memory effective).

The base and SuperClocked models utilize an EVGA-designed cooling solution and PCB, which closely resemble NVIDIA reference design; while the FTW model carries over the cooler and PCB from GeForce GTX 680, coupled with a high-flow bracket. The base model 2 GB and 4 GB are priced at US $399 and $469, respectively; the SuperClocked 2 GB and 4 GB go for $419 and $489, respectively; while the FTW 2 GB goes for $439.

EVGA Intros GeForce GTX 680 FTW

EVGA launched its GeForce GTX 680 FTW (for the win) Edition graphics cards. The series includes two variants, a 2 GB variant (02G-P4-3686-KR) with overclocked memory, and a 4 GB variant (04G-P4-3687-KR) with Backplate. Both cards utilize EVGA's Signature board design. The 2 GB variant features clock speeds of 1110 MHz (core base), 1176 MHz (core boost), and 6.20 GHz (memory, effective). It is one of the very few graphics card models that ship with overclocked memory. The 4 GB variant, on the other hand, retain the core base/boost clock speeds of its sibling, but the memory clock speed is left untouched, at 6.00 GHz. Both cards draw power from 6-pin + 8-pin power connectors. The EVGA GTX 680 FTW 2 GB is priced at US $569.99, while the EVGA GTX 680 FTW 4 GB w/backplate is priced at US $629.99.

EVGA Launches its GeForce GTX 690

EVGA kicked off its GeForce GTX 690 lineup with two models: the GTX 690 reference design (04G-P4-2690-KR), and the GTX 690 Signature Edition (04G-P4-2692-KR). Priced at US $999.99, the reference design package has everything necessary including fancy PCI-E power adapters, and case stickers. The card sticks to NVIDIA reference clock speeds of 915/1019/6008 MHz (core base/core boost/memory effective). The Signature Edition, on the other hand, charges a $50 premium for an EVGA-branded T-shirt and mousepad. The reference design is available on EVGA online store, while the Signature Edition is up for pre-order, at US $1,049.

EVGA Develops Sleeved PCI-E Cable Adapters for Select Graphics Cards

EVGA developed a new accessory that could give the graphics card area a mean muscular look, without putting you through the grueling task of sleeving your PSU's cables. The Sleeved PCI-E Cable Adapter accessory by EVGA lets you extend the PCI-E cables of your PSU just enough that they could appear sleeved, when looked through the side-panel window. The contact between the adapter and your PSU's actual PCI-E power connectors can be tucked away behind the motherboard. Pictured below is an adapter that plugs in two 6-pin PCI-E connectors, and plugs out an 8-pin connector. For now, EVGA could bundle the accessory with select models of its graphics cards, it's likely that the part could make it to the accessories section of the EVGA online store, too.

EVGA Dual-Fan Signature 2 GeForce GTX 680 Cooling Solution Pictured

EVGA kicked off its GeForce GTX 680 lineup with a bang. On its launch, EVGA showed off its first "Signature" cooling solution. That particular cooler is similar in design to NVIDIA's cooling solution (lateral-flow through aluminum channels). We're getting to know of yet another of EVGA's non-reference cooler designs for the GeForce GTX 680, the dual-fan Signature 2 cooler. Pictured below (still in its CGI form), the cooler uses two 80 mm fans that guide air through a complex heatsink below. The fans will spin at lower speeds to achieve similar/higher air-flow than the lateral-blower featured on other designs, and hence could end up being quieter. This cooler features on EVGA GeForce GTX 680 SuperClocked Signature 2.

EVGA GeForce GTX 680 Superclocked Made Official

Only teased last week, EVGA's factory-overclocked GeForce GTX 680s are becoming a reality, with the first one to get make it out being the GTX 680 SuperClocked. The SC model is based around NVIDIA's reference design but has a base clock of 1058 MHz (1006 MHz stock), a boost clock of 1113 MHz (1058 MHz), and a memory frequency of 6208 MHz (6008 MHz).

The GeForce GTX 680 SC also packs 1536 CUDA Cores, a 256-bit memory interface, 2 GB of GDDR5 VRAM, a PCI-Express 3.0 bus interface, 3D Vision Surround and SLI support, and dual-DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort outputs.

The 'vanilla' GTX 680 SuperClocked costs $519.99 while its backplate-equipped sibling goes for $529.99. Both should become available very, very soon.
