Zotac GTX 680
A quick glance at the Zotac GTX 680 reveals that it’s an exact replica of Nvidia’s reference design GTX 680; and indeed it is. The only thing separating the Zotac card from the reference Nvidia GTX 680 we have in our office is the sticker on it.
Well, that and the Zotac card comes with the Assassin Creed Trilogy. The games included are Assassin Creed (1) Director’s Cut Edition, Assassins Creed II Deluxe Edition and the latest Assassins Creed Revelations.
Outside of the Zotac GTX 680 doesn’t come with any additional overclock or custom heatsink. Their AMP! Edition models will undoubtedly be coming in the next month or two.
While there’s no point in covering the benchmarks of the Zotac GTX 680, since performance is identical to the reference Nvidia GTX 680 which you can view in our review, I did manage to successfully overclock the Zotac card using MSI’s Afterburner utility.
The most stable overclock I got was +127Hz on the Core Clock and +200MHz on the memory speeds. Under benchmarks, Afterburner reported that actual speeds of the Core clock would hover over 1200MHz. Memory speed remained constant at 6400MHz (effective). That’s a 12.6% and 6.7% overclock for core clock and memory speeds.
