TweakTown has just posted a full review of the newest GTX 680 card from PALIT. This model is equipped with 4GB of GDDR5 memory.

PALIT GeForce GTX 680 4GB JetStream is in fact a very good solution. But, as we predicted earlier, 4GB won’t have a huge effect on your framerates, it will however provide slightly better performance in high-resulutions.

As for PALIT GTX 680 4GB, this model is almost similar to 2GB version. It is less noisy than reference designed (by 5dB), it also provides lower temperature (around 58 C in full load). Please notice that even though this model comes with non-reference design, it features standard clocks (the same as GTX 680 2GB model).

We have made a comparison table from TweakTown’s review. Overall performance is 2% better than 2GB version. But if we compare only high-resolutions then 4GB version offers up to 4% better performance.
