And the hits keep coming from EVGA
; a few weeks after we got the details on the company’s GeForce GTX 680 SC
Signature (with and without backplate), EVGA has announced all the information about the GeForce GTX 680 FTW.
Wrapped in what is essentially the same body as the SC Signature, the FTW card sports a base clock of 1110MHz and a boost clock of 1176MHZ, both a slight bump up from the SC Signature’s 1084MHz/1150MHz. The memory clock is the same--6208MHz (effective)--and they both have 2GB of 256-bit GDDR5 memory and memory bandwidth of 198.66GB/s. The FTW has a slightly higher texture fill rate (142GT/s as opposed to 138.8GT/s).
While the SC Signature has a 5-phase PWM design, the FTW has an 8-phase PWM.
EVGA GeForce GTX 680 FTW w/backplate
The FTW packs PCI-E 3.0 (16x), DVI-I, DVI-D, HDMI, and DisplayPort, and of course it supports up to four-way SLI. The price tag for all this graphical bounty is $569.99, or you can opt for the 4GB version of the FTW (with backplate for better cooling) for $629.99.
