Get to the next level with the EVGA GeForce GTX 680. This card delivers truly game-changing performance that taps into the powerful new GeForce architecture to redefine smooth, seamless, lifelike gaming. It offers brand new, never-before-seen features that will redefine the way you think about performance graphics cards. Take a closer look at the line-up of new features that sets this card apart from the rest:

  • NVIDIA SMX Engine
  • Brand new processing engine which delivers twice the performance/watt compared to previous generations.
  • NVIDIA GPU Boost Technology
  • Dynamically maximizes clock speeds to push performance to new levels and bring out the best in every game. This technology is based on the temperature and power draw of your card, as well as what application you're running. The card will tailor its clock speeds for maximum performance & longevity.
  • NVIDIA FXAA
  • Enables lightning fast anti-aliasing in a huge variety of games with the simple click of a mouse.
  • NVIDIA TXAA
  • Get the image quality of 8X MSAA with the performance hit of only 2X MSAA. This means a smoother gaming experience without the loss in FPS normally associated with this level of eye candy.
  • NVIDIA Adaptive Vertical Sync
  • Adjusts VSync to your monitor's native refresh rate for the smoothest gameplay possible.
  • Frame Rate Target
  • Set a target Frame Rate with EVGA Precision X and your card will automatically adjust the power/performance to meet that target. This feature delivers the ultimate in efficient gaming.
  • NVIDIA 3D Vision Surround
  • Now supported on a single GPU, with up to three gaming monitors plus one accessory display!
  • PCI Express 3.0
  • Offers double the bandwidth of PCI Express 2.0, for the highest data transfer speeds to allow for maximum performance in bandwidth-hungry games and 3D applications. The GTX680 is still backwards compatible with all existing PCI Express motherboards.

Expect more from your graphics card than just state-of-the-art features and technology; get a faster, smoother and richer gaming experience with the EVGA GeForce GTX 680.

  • Power Phases
  • Select EVGA GeForce GTX 680s offer a 5 or more phase PWM design. This gives you the best power delivery and overclocking headroom possible.
  • 8+6 Pin/8+8 Pin Power Connectors
  • Available on EVGA GeForce GTX 680 Superclocked Signature, FTW, Classified and Hydro Copper models, these connectors can provide up to 225/300 watts, delivering better overclock stability.
  • Attention to Quality
  • EVGA's attention to quality is worth noting, from performance to appearance, even down to the package contents and protection. EVGA cards ship with cover caps over the critical components, eliminating worries about any dust build-up or damage that could occur.
  • Vapor Chamber Cooling
  • On select EVGA products, this unique cooler can help lower temperatures by as much as 4 degrees Celsius.
  • EVGA High Flow Bracket
  • On select EVGA graphics cards, this brand new bracket design lowers operating temperatures by as much as 3 degrees Celsius.
  • EVGA Backplate
  • On select EVGA graphics cards, this backplate looks awesome and improves PCB strength.
  • EVGA Warranty
  • Brand new EVGA warranty that covers the graphics card, not the user. This means the only requirement for warranty coverage is ownership of the card during its warranty period. Learn more here.

  • Power Phases
  • Select EVGA GeForce GTX 680s offer a 5 or more phase PWM design. This gives you the best power delivery and overclocking headroom possible.
  • 8+6 Pin/8+8 Pin Power Connectors
  • Available on EVGA GeForce GTX 680 Superclocked Signature, FTW, Classified and Hydro Copper models, these connectors can provide up to 225/300 watts, delivering better overclock stability.
  • Attention to Quality
  • EVGA's attention to quality is worth noting, from performance to appearance, even down to the package contents and protection. EVGA cards ship with cover caps over the critical components, eliminating worries about any dust build-up or damage that could occur.
  • Vapor Chamber Cooling
  • On select EVGA products, this unique cooler can help lower temperatures by as much as 4 degrees Celsius.
  • EVGA High Flow Bracket
  • On select EVGA graphics cards, this brand new bracket design lowers operating temperatures by as much as 3 degrees Celsius.
  • EVGA Backplate
  • On select EVGA graphics cards, this backplate looks awesome and improves PCB strength.
  • EVGA Warranty
  • Brand new EVGA warranty that covers the graphics card, not the user. This means the only requirement for warranty coverage is ownership of the card during its warranty period. Learn more here.

1 GeForce GTX 680 supports PCI Express 3.0. It operates properly within the SIG PCI Express Specification and has been validated on multiple upcoming PCI Express 3.0 platforms. Some motherboard manufacturers have released updated SBIOS to enable the Intel X79/SNB-E PCI Express 2.0 platform to run at up to 8GT/s bus speeds. NVIDIA is currently working to validate X79/SNB-E with GTX 680 at these speeds with the goal of enabling 8GT/s via a future software update. Until this validation is complete, the GTX 680 will operate at PCIE 2.0 speeds on X79/SNB-E-based motherboards with the latest web drivers.
