GTX 680 News

As you all know Nvidia is going to release their next gen GPU in the coming weeks. but last week a Zotac GTX 680 was listed on Dutch online-store ComCom.nl, for 426.20€ excluding taxes, and 507.18€ including it. these cards will begin shipping in 2-5 weeks. There's practically no quantity limit, so those picking four cards for 4-way SLI, can step right up. The ComCom listing doesn't reveal much about the card, except its clock speeds of 1006 MHz (core), 6008 MHz (memory effective), 2 GB memory amount, and display connectivity that includes two DVI, and one each of HDMI and DisplayPort. this only happened for a brief period, before redacting the sale page.
But today US retailer Bottom Line Telecommunications, listed ASUS GeForce GTX 680 on its online store (shopBLT). Carrying the part number GTX680-2GD5, this card is priced at US $566.75. The part that makes this a pre-order is that the sale page mentions that "You may order this product regardless of availability," it would be shipped as soon as it's available (after it's launched, of course).
