Gigabyte Releases GeForce GTX 680 (GV-N680WF5-2GD) Graphics Card

Last year Gigabyte released a flagship graphics card from Super Overclock series, entitled Gigabyte GeForce GTX 680 SOC (codename: GV-N680SO-2GD). The card was differentiated by the increased clock frequencies, as compared with the etalon model. These days the company has introduced one more representative from Super Overclock series – model GeForce GTX 680 (codename: GV-N680WF5-2GD). It differs from the predecessor by keeping the etalon GPU clock frequencies (1006 MHz – nominal and 1058 MHz – boost) and by optimizing memory clock frequencies (1550 MHz – nominal, 6200 MHz – effective).



The greenhorn is based on Nvidia GK104 GPU, featuring 1536 CUDA cores, and is furnished with 2 GB of GDDR5 memory modules (256-bit interface). The incorporated PCB employs a brand Ultra Durable VGA+ technology that stipulates the increase of copper in some layers. In addition, it implies the employment of an improved hardware layout, including metallic and ferrite chokes, polar Low …

Gigabyte Debuts with Socket AM1 Motherboards

Gigabyte is the first among AMD’s partners to introduce proprietary motherboards for an upcoming Socket AM1 platform. Initially the AM1 series will comprise only two models: the GA-AM1M-S2P and the GA-AM1M-S2H. Both feature micro-ATX form-factor and are supposed to house AMD Athlon/Sempron APUs. They employ two DIMM slots for the integration of up to 32 GB DDR3 memory with 1600 MHz frequency. The release is scheduled for March when the platform is officially introduced.



Gigabyte motherboards have got two SATA III 6 Gb/sec ports for the expansion of storage, one PCIe 2.0 x16, one PCIe x1 and one PCI connector for the connection of add-ons. Network functional consists of gigabit controller from Realtek, whereas audio functional is laid upon 7.1-channel HAD Realtek ALC 887 codec.


The differentiation between the two models lies in the set of internal/external interfaces. Hence, the GA-AM1M-S2P comes with two PS/2 ports, one D-Sub port, four USB ports (3.0 + 2.0), one RJ-45, …
