    Post nVidia 'Kepler' GeForce GTX 680 Reviews

    We could prattle on and on extolling the GTX 680’s virtues but here’s what really matters: NVIDIA’s newest flagship card is superior to the
    HD 7970 in almost every way. Whether it is performance, power consumption, noise, features, price or launch day availability,
    it currently owns the road and won’t be looking over its shoulder for some time to come.

    Aye, the first thing I said when I saw the 7970 results were that it wasn't fast enough for the node transition. Nvidia have proven me right, and then some, this is actually faster than expected for the size of the core.

    Great card, first time in ages that I want to get a high end card - power consumption and temperature to performance is just legendary on this thing, but so is the price

    I might get one if they come down to around 350 for a custom dual fansink design, plus it would be great with an 8 + 6 pin custom design fir higher overclocking.

    Compute has fallen Back to gaming
    Can somebody point me to OCed (7970) vs OCed (GTX 680) comparisons please ?

    About equal, once highly overclocked, both perform more or less the same. A 1250 6400 7970 does about 3550-3700 in 3D Marks X and this card too does 3600+ once overclocked. More or less at par at heavy loads once overclocked fully

    So the Spitfire fits!?
    Does if fit with the original backplate (that's how I want to use it)?
    Does it have the same mounting holes as 580?
    I just ordered an EVGA GTX680, I want to use the Spitfire and keep the warranty intact.

    No one really knows whether compute has fallen since NVIDIA has yet to roll out finalized drivers that include compute optimizations.

    Comparing OC to OC is very hard since every sample overclocks to a different level.

    At 1300-1350 Mhz even a Radeon 7970 will give you around 3800 points. But for that you need an Accelero/Custom Water cooling, not stock at least not unless you plan to use 100% fan with stock cooling

    Just wanted to put this up here so we can get a perspective:

    GTX-680-109.jpg

    Which led to......


    GTX-680-82.jpg


    And a price of $499.

    Compute has 'fallen' in the sense that this was not architected for a continuing the upward compute performance curve and it shows. Not that it was necessary - Fermi did that and AMD needed GCN compete in that segment. Moreover from talks GK110 seems to be "big,hot,compute" chip.

    Comparing OC to OC is very hard since every sample overclocks to a different level.
    Yeah I understand, but you could take the median value that these cards manage on air with stock coolers - I guess I'll have to wait a few days for further insight.
    Eagerly awaiting an AMD price cut ...

    Is that GK110 the one that comes in Q4 or the old 580? If its the new one that would be crazy

    Basically sums it up.

    That 499 price tag could've been lower if not for 7970's high price upon release. No?
    But that didn't happen, and I ain't gonna upset the mood in here so...

    The GF110 was about equal to the GF100 in terms of die area.

    680 looks really nice and given that I might have to RMA my 7950 because of a growing fan bearing issue I might jump over.

    i think Kall is right. when you deal with area, its common for people to be off by the factor of 2
    2500k @ 4900mhz - Asus Maxiums IV Gene Z - Swiftech Apogee LP
    GTX 680 @ +170 (1267mhz) / +300 (3305mhz) - EK 680 FC EN/Acteal
