Nvidia's new baby gets Phantom treatment


Although it was already pixellized at Tweaktown, Gainward has now officially launched its newest Geforce GTX 680 Phantom card with custom PCB, factory overclock and new Phantom II cooler.

The new GTX 680 Phantom features a custom PCB with 6-phase DrMOS VRM desing that should provide additional overclocking potential as well more stability. The new GTX 680 Phantom ended up overclocked to 1084MHz for base and 1150MHz for boost clock while 2GB of GDDR5 memory paired up with 256-bit memory interface is working at 1575MHz (6300MHz effective).

The main feature of the GTX 680 Phantom card is its Phantom II cooler. Unlike previous Phantom cooler seen on the GTX 580, this one features new heatsink/fins design that provides better thermal performance, lower acoustic level and more solid structure. We are still looking at a 2.5-slot design with five "grand-prix" 6mm copper-water heatpipes paired up with copper base, large aluminum heatsink and two 80mm silent PWM GR8 fans. All these features add up to provide up to 7.8dB quieter and up to 6°C cooler card when compared to the reference one.

The availability is set for the middle of next month while the price still remains a mystery but we don't expect it to be that much more expensive when compared to the reference GTX 680.
