GeForce GTX 680 EVGA Classified Edition Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce GTX 680 EVGA Classified Edition is a Special Edition of the powerful GeForce GTX 680.
This version overclocking out of the box in the core-clock that went from 1006MHz to 1111MHz while the Boost Clock runs now at 1176MHz. The memory clock was left untouched.
Another feature is the frame buffer having 4GB instead of just 2GB. This may prove useful when putting GeForce GTX 680 in a extreme preset but it won't affect at all during occasional, daily, enthusiast gaming.
Benchmarks indicate a 6.4% performance boost when compared to the reference GPU.
