Zotac makes the Nvidia graphics card GeForce GTX 680 practically untouched, and resembles the reference design exactly. Only the label can be seen that this is a model for Zotac. But the producers laced a thick package features to make the graphics card attractive.
New Zotac sticker on it and it's already done, the Zotac GeForce GTX 680! Of course it is not so: The manufacturer has directed its attention more on the delivery - gamers will enjoy it for its light. You can expect from the Gigabyte model but no higher clock speeds or complex cooling designs.
The new Nvidia graphics chip also has the video processor revised to tasks still can lift more. The discharge of the main CPU should be very low: When playing 3D Blu-ray Full HD is the utilization of the processor only 4 percent. Even when
transcoding from 60 seconds of full HD movies, the Zotac GeForce GTX 680 faster: WMVs the map transforms within 25 seconds, 34 seconds into H.264 in iPad format. Even so, the AMD Radeon HD overtaken 7970th Only the OpenGL performance is quite poor for a premium graphics card: Cinebench 11.5 measures only 51.69 frames per second.
That the Nvidia Geforce GTX is absolutely Games Suitable for 680, the test of the reference design has been proven. Not only that, but even then the graphics king, the AMD Radeon HD 7970 , pushed the GTX 680 from the throne. Zotac has not changed the clock speeds, so the frame rates hardly differ. Battlefield 3 is in Ultra settings no problem, since we measure fluid 52 frames per second.
As already mentioned, Zotac has nothing to technical specifications of the Nvidia Geforce GTX altered 680th The GPU clock is therefore still amounts to 1006 MHz, in the "boost clock" it is 1059 MHz. The two clocks are due to Nvidia's "GPU Boost", which was introduced by the manufacturer with the Geforce GTX 680th.
