TweakTown crew managed to take a sneak peak on many yet unreleased products. So did they find new Lightning model from MSI. Card comes with many overclocking features, including unlocked BIOS (to increase power-limit up to 300%), disabled protections (Over Current Protection, Active Phase Switching are both disabled on this card). MSI GTX 680 Lightning has special V-Check Points, which are basically a connectors for connecting a multimeter to read voltage from GPU/Memory and PLL.
As MSI claims, new GTX 680 model comes with digital PWM controller, which will allow you to get two times more power output for overclocking. It’s hard to notice details but it looks like it requires two 8-pin power connectors for maximum potential.
MSI has set up two of those cards for a demo of upcoming Windows 8 presentation.
