If the Asus ROG MARS III or PowerColor Radeon HD 7970 X2 Devil13 are called to be a graphics cards that could be considered as beasts, the Colorful GeForce GTX 680 iGame comes to takes its turn to be a customized video graphics card. In this case the design is based on Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 680 with single core GK 104.
This is another interesting developments that we have been seen at Computex 2012, Colorful is a manufacturer well known for its extreme versions of graphics cards and the Colorful GeForce GTX 680 iGame has surprised us all. Basically it is a design based on Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 680, but not just any custom design, this takes the cake in size and appearance.
As you can see the size is impressive but the funny thing is that this has a completely passive cooling, no fan. Initially it has a large heatsink that covers the entire PCB of the graphics card, and we could say that its size can be considered normal, since it needs two expansion slots.
The highlight comes when you add another sink of similar dimensions to the PCB of the graphics card, that’s when the appearance of the Colorful GeForce GTX 680 iGame becomes enormous and can take up to 7 expansion slots without problems.
The link between the two sinks is done through what Colorful called iGame V, a small piece that has six copper heatpipes with six millimeters thick nickel plated . Anyway this piece is optional, because if we don’t use it we lose the ability for multi-GPU configurations with this model.
Regarding operating frequencies we do not know anything yet, but hopefully it comes with some overclock compared to the reference model, its price is also unknown.
