Graphics Card Gigabyte GeForce GTX 680 Super Overclock Review

The launch of graphics solutions with WindForce 5X cooling system stirred a real boom in the market, giving a special tribute to the products developed by Gigabyte. The company launched two adapters this summer with the implementation of WindForce 5X system and now introduces one more card on its basis. Model Gigabyte GeForce GTX 680 Super Overclock can be called a paragon of efficient performance, overclocking and cooling activities.



Design


Graphics card GeForce GTX 680 Super Overclock features 295x120x64 mm dimensions and rather unusual design. Instead of common fans on the frontal board Gigabyte covered PCB and elements of cooling system by a metallic cover with decorative holes; the rear board is also covered by a metallic plate.

Red Dragon Radeon RX 560 2GB GDDR5 OC and Red Dragon Radeon RX 560 4GB GDDR5 OC from PowerColor

Not to lag behind other vendors the PowerColor company has presented a couple of Radeon RX 560 video cards. We should note that these cards utilize the renamed Polaris 11 GPU with 1024 active streaming processors. At the moment such accelerators are not available on sale, however they are to hit the market by the end of the month.



Thus, PowerColor has produced the Red Dragon Radeon RX 560 2GB GDDR5 OC, alongside with the Red Dragon Radeon RX 560 4GB GDDR5 OC samples, differing in the memory volume (which is observable from their names) and in the GPU frequency. The higher model’s Boost clock equals to 1,180 MHz, and the lower model’s rate is 1,288 MHz. The effective memory in both cases operates at 7,000 MHz.


Chilling of PowerColor specialties is ensured by a cooler with big heatsink. The auxiliary power connector is absent. The interface set includes DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort (x3).
