Palit's Triple Fan 'Jetstream' GeForce 680 Graphics Card Really Blows; Presumably Doesn't Suck

Paul Lilly

It's been exactly a week since Nvidia officially launched its Kepler architecture with the release of the GeForce GTX 680 GPU, and though parts are in short supply (a quick glance at Newegg shows that every single SKU is out of stock), manufacturers are nonetheless trying to stand out from the crowd. Palit's fashion statement comes in the form of a triple fan GeForce GTX 680 with alternating blade rotations.

Each adjacent fan on Palit's Jetstream GeForce GTX 680 rotates in a different direction to reduce airflow conflicts and improve overall cooling performance, Palit claims. The design is supposedly inspired by jet engines, with the idea of generating a powerful air stream and intense air pressure.

It's a slightly overclocked card with a base clock frequency of 1084MHz, up from 1006Mhz in Nvidia's reference blueprint, along with 2GB of GDDR5 memory sitting pretty at 3150MHz (6300MHz effective), up from 3004MHz (6008MHz effective) on the reference design. Other features include LED lighting, high current circuitry, a 6-phase PWM design, and simultaneous 3 x DVI monitor support.

No word yet on price or availability.
