Galaxy developing single slot GTX 680
Ryan Martin / 6 years ago
Galaxy is working on a single slot variant of Nvidia’s GTX 680. This is possible thanks to the relatively high power efficiency of the GTX 680 and its reasonably low 195W TDP. The benefits of having a single slot design are evident for two reasons:
- either there isn’t enough space in the case (width ways) for a dual slot card in a certain slot (particularly the last slot)
- there isn’t enough room between the PCI express lanes to fit in a card or to have sufficient airflow (more of an issue for those running other expansion cards or more than one card).
The name of this model is the GTX 680 “Warrior’s Edition” (how it translates) and it features a length extension to compensate for the reduced width.
