The Nvidia GeForce GTX 680 was one of the highlights in the industry this year, and simply stuck two fingers up at AMD when it came to the performance war, and ended up being dubbed as the most powerful single core graphics card in the world at the time of launch.
Since the launch, we’ve seen custom solutions coming from a variety of partners, including Asus, EVGA and MSI to name a few. Another brand who has suddenly leapt into the market is KFA2, who are a sub-brand for Galaxy, to appeal to the UK market, in a rather unique way.
The design behind KFA2 and their marketing is quite “hip” and “cool” to say the least, with hoodies and skulls being promoted across every aspects of their branding. This can appeal to a large market, and not just a niche as higher-end products generally are aimed at. KFA2 seem to take a unique spin on things by offering cards with factory overclocks and custom cooling solutions, and this all adds to the value behind their products.
Today sees us taking a look at one of their newest products; the GTX 680 EX OC, which comes fully equipped with a twin fan cooler design and a modest factory overclock, straight out of the box.
Before we get underway with the performance side of things, we will take a look at the packaging and bundle that KFA2 have on offer before taking a detailed look at the card itself, including its overclocked specifications.
Once we have this done and dusted, we can see how this compares to other cards on the market, including a reference design GTX 680 and some other more exotic cards that can match up to the unique features we have from KFA2.
