Though EVGA's new GeForce GTX 680 Mac Edition is advertised as offering "brand new, never before seen features," it is virtually identical to Nvidia's reference GTX 680 graphics card. Aside from including the company's in-house cooling design, it can only cite software comparability as a notable feature.
As the name suggests, the GTX 680 Mac Edition is intended for Early 2008 (or later) Mac Pro computers and has out-of-the-box support for Mac OS X v10.8.3 and Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8 via Apple Boot Camp.
