Colorful GTX 680 iGame Kudan Graphics Card Pictured

Even though it has already been several days since the official launch of NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 680, there seems to be no stopping the downpour of custom models. 

Then again, this is not so much a report concerning a new video board, but a rumor about a model that has yet to come forth. 

Much like Galaxy, Colorful is developing a special iteration of the Kepler-based graphics card. 

It will be called GTX 680 iGame Kudan and will use the best air cooler that the company has in its collection. 

Called iGame Kudan (hence the card name), the cooling solution is actually modular, meaning that owners can modify it themselves, to some extent. 

The heatsinks can be handled independently (the VRM and memory can be covered with their own) and even the color can be changed (a pastel set is included). 

As people will have surmised by now, Colorful won't waste its best cooling technology on a reference-specced board. 

Unfortunately, though we can say for certain that factory overclocking will be involved, we don't know how much faster than the stock speeds the GPU, shaders and memory will work. 

We presume it won't be in the 2GHz range, but that's just fine, since buyers will get all they need to tweak the performance on their own. 

Speaking of which, the Colorful GTX 680 iGame Kudan will get an 8-phase digital VRM that can be augmented with a 4-phase circuit, through a daughterboard attached to a modified So-DIMM slot. 

The daughterboard lies at the back of the product, parallel to the plane of the PCB. 

People familiar with the company will know that Colorful only sells video controllers in Asia and Europe, so US citizens will have to look for alternatives. 

For the reference specifications that the Kudan seeks to leave in the dust, go here, where we covered the formal release of NVIDIA's invention.
