GeForce GTX 680 to get 2GB of RAM, have 195W TDP?

Some early specs and an image of NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce GTX 680 graphics card have been leaked thanks to China's PCOnline and ChipHell. It will be the company's first based on the 28nm architecture and reportedly sport a clock speed of 1,006MHz, but can be overclocked to 1,058MHz for short bursts. There are also said to be 1,536 visual processing cores onboard, along with 2GB of RAM on a 256-bit memory bus.

In comparison, the GTX 580 that the 680 replaces had just 512 cores. It also used up 244W of power, while the 680's peak thermal power will reportedly be 195W. Thanks to this, it can use a dual six-pin PEG power connector.

The graphics card should compete with AMD's flagship Radeon HD 7970. Release dates and prices for the card are two remaining mysteries, but around $600 is likely.
