KFA2 GeForce GTX 680 LTD OC 2048MB Review (UK exclusive) (1268mhz – White PCB)

KFA2 adopt a ‘graffiti’ style design for their box artwork and I feel it works well.

The card ships in a large box with the accessories on top. These include literature on the card, power converters, a software disc and several converters from mini HDMI to HDMI and HDMI to DVI.

When you buy this card from Overclockers you get a free KFA2 GPU keyring, worth £9.95. I think this is much better than getting a free game which you may already have.

I review so many video cards that I have become rather numb to the design. This specific card however stands out a mile, and I spent quite a lot of time analysing the board construction and layout. How cool does it look with a white PCB?

This is a proprietary design with a 2+2 PhaseMemory PWM and an 8 Phase Core PWM (8+2+2). I really do recommend you have a look at this board in detail on the next page, which features super high resolution pictures from the Nikon D3X SLR camera.

The cooler is black, and features not one, not two, but three 90mm fans. The card measures 280×111.15×38.75mm.

This card is SLI capable in 2,3 and 4 way configurations. If you have £2k to spare, 3 monitors and a behemoth power supply that would make the foundation of a rather impressive gaming machine.

This card cuts no corners, it requires two 8 pin power connectors for stable operation.

An unusual configuration. A full sized DisplayPort and three mini HDMI connectors. KFA2 do supply a mini HDMI to HDMI converter and an HDMI to DVI convertor in the box, so all digital bases are covered.

The white PCB is simply beautiful. The card has dedicated heatsinks on the VRM’s and GDDR5 memory also. Always a good sign. The cooler is a substantial design, comprising a copper base which leads out into 5 thick heatpipes which split into two separate racks of aluminum fins.

A GPUz overview of the KFA2 GeForce GTX 680 LTD OC. This card is heavily overclocked, by close to 200mhz over the reference card. The 2GB of GDDR5 memory is connected via a 256Bit memory interface, running at 1,502mhz (6Gbps effective). The GK104 core is built on the 28nm process.
