In May, Point of View/TGT launched a luxurious version of the GeForce GTX 680, which combined a handpicked GPU with a large cooler, allowing for the clock frequencies to be elevated beyond those of Nvidia's reference model. This card was called 'Ultra Charged', the name Point of View gives to the fastest versions of graphics cards it makes. It turns out that higher clock frequencies were only half of the story, as a card like this requires sufficient memory as well. Especially when using three high resolution monitors, 2 GB of memory can be limiting.
As such, Point of View/TGT has issued a second GTX 680 Ultra Charged graphics card, equipped with 4 GB of memory, rather than 2 GB. The clock frequencies have stayed identical, with the core clocked at 1111 MHz and the memory at an effective speed of 6008 MHz. By selecting the GPUs , the graphics card would heat up less fast, thus offering a better overclocking potential. The triple-slot cooler, equipped with three 80 mm fans and numerous heatpipes, doesn't hurt for keeping the card chilled either. The new GTX 680 card with 4 GB of memory will cost roughly €600 (£472), and should be immediately available.
