EVGA’s GTX 680 Classified PCB and GTX 690 Hydro Copper Cooler Pictured
EVGA has already two GeForce GTX 690 cards listed on their pages, but it looks like company is preparing another variant. On the other hand, manufacturer has plenty of GTX 680 models (nine), but that didn’t stop them from creating yet another iteration, this time equipped with 4GB and 14 phases.
EVGA GeForce GTX 680 4GB Classified
Consider this as the fastest EVGA’s GTX 680 model. It features 8+8 power design with 14 phases on PWM. Additionally Classified comes with 4GB of memory, which will be useful if you are preparing a multi-display configuration or just playing with 2560×1600 resolution. Card itself keeps a design known from other GeForce 600 Series products, but it’s significantly larger. Thanks to OBR-Hardware, we have a first look on it’s PCB, which you will find wider and more polished. Secondly, memory chips are placed on both sides of the card – that’s why EVGA has equipped this model with a backplate.

This is a custom-designed water-block for GTX 690 graphics card. I have no detailed information about cards that will be equipped with this cooling, but as Guru3D claims, it will be available separately.
