Gigabyte GTX680 SOC Review 


We've taken a look at a few factory upgraded GTX680s, from the Windforce to the AMP!. Today it's time to take a look at a model that has previously delivered the goods, the Gigabyte Super Over Clock.

The biggest change between this card and the normal third-party variants is a rather unique take upon the cooling solution, which we'll get to on the next page.

By now you all know what to expect from a GTX680, so let us get down to the nitty gritty.

Technical Specifications

Out of the box the SOC comes with a 121MHz overclock on the base, and 144MHz on the boost, when compared to the reference card. Considering we got our reference card to overclock past that we're hoping for big things from this Super Over Clock model.
