MSI starts sales of new GeForce GTX 680 graphics card

Micro-Star International has started the sales of a new GeForce GTX 680-based video card that goes by the name of N680GTX Lightning L.

The L letter perhaps stands for Light as this card is a slower version of the N680GTX Lightning released some time ago. To make it slower MSI has reduced the clock speed of the GPU – it now runs at 1019 MHz (1084 MHz in Turbo Mode) – but the memory speed remains unchanged at 6008 MHz. Even at these clock speeds though, the N680GTX Lightning is faster than the reference NVIDIA clock speeds so rest assured you get more than what NVIDIA is willing to give.

The rest of the hardware specs are pretty much known – you get the GK104 chip with 1536 stream processors, Military Class hardware components that include CopperMOS elements, Hi-c CAP tantalum capacitors, Golden SSC plated ferrite chokes and Dark Solid CAP nickel-plated solid capacitors. The card also offers 2 GB of GDDR5 memory, a 256-bit memory bus, support for 4-way SLI, an 8-pin power connector, 12-phase power system and Dual-Link DVI-I, Dual-Link DVI-D, DisplayPort and HDMI video outputs.

The MSI N680GTX Lightning L is available now for USD 620.
