A Look at the NVIDIA Kepler GTX 680


It’s that time again. The time where computer hardware advances even further to bring a brand new wave of extreme video cards. The latest? The Kepler GTX 680 by NVIDIA, which will sport a price tag of around $500 using the GK104 architecture.

The card is 10 inches in length so it is big in size, but not the biggest graphics card out there.

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 is compatible with HDMI 1.4a and supports up to a 4-way SLI for a very intense configuration and is rated up to 195w.
