That's right, you read the title right. We have in our digital possession 3 pictures of a yet unreleased retail Gigabyte GTX 680 graphics card. It would appear that Gigabyte has followed nVidia's reference board design for this card, opting to use the stock cooler. The only thing that is a visible change is the futuristic sci-fi art on the cooler shroud.
Earlier today we reported on another store listing the GTX 680 for sale. I commented on how, with all of these store postings, that the release of the GTX 680 must be coming soon. These pictures confirm just that. We have proof of a retail packaged GTX 680 meaning these are probably on the way to retail stores now. The first images of a retail GTX 680 have appeared online thanks to Overclock.net forum member "ironman86." They show that the card does in fact use two 6-pin power connectors. The source has promised us benchmarks, and we will try to get them posted as soon as he does. In the meantime, take a look at the rest of the pictures.
