Default EVGA 680 MAC EDITION LOL!

You guessed it. Lower stats for more money.

Well, from what I see, it comes with a DP adapter, unlike other EVGA GTX 680s. With that said, the price is certainly odd.

If I remember correctly not too long ago Sapphire was showing off a Mac compatible (actually PC/Mac switchable) Radeon 7950 3GB that was also priced high.

This SKU would be so low-volume that it probably needs to be priced at a significant premium to cover platform specific testing, support, marketing and to make worth it to developing in the first place.
