[TPU] Galaxy GeForce GTX 680 4 GB Pictured

Galaxy is working on a new GeForce GTX 680 graphics card. Pictures below reveal the Galaxy GTX 680 4 GB. As the name suggests, it is a non-reference design that's based on doubling the memory amount. The card features an out-of-the-box core OC of 1.10 GHz (base, boost not mentioned).

It did this, by using sixteen 2 Gbit GDDR5 memory chips. There's more to this card than its memory amount. The PCB is designed from scratch, and uses a strong 5+2 phase VRM, which draws power from 6+8 pin power connectors. The VRM appears to make use of International Rectifier-made DirectFETs. Perhaps Galaxy also went off-spec with the VRM controller, and maybe it supports a software interface. The cooler is an in-house design by Galaxy, too. It consists of a large heat-pipe fed aluminum fin array, ventilated by two 90 mm fans.

It's why i didn't get a 680 right away.

Patience pays off ^^

HOF edition needs 2x 8pin power connectors compared to 2x6pin of standard cards, am I right in thinking this will be a duel chip card? if not what would the extra power be for?

Except when you wait 2 months for something marginally better and then 2 months after that something like the gk110 comes out. Waiting is a losing game in tech, especially with gpu's these days.

No, the bigger power connectors are simply made to accommodate the higher power draw that you'll get from overclocking this card.

This will be a card purely made for high / extreme overclocks just like the MSI Lightning series. These also usually have 2x 8-pin connectors eventhough you dont really need that, its basically a safety feature to ensure stability with increased power draw caused by OC as the 6-pin connectors are only certified for 75W (eventhough they're able to carry MUCH more).
