Now if your highway only has 2 lanes, but your speed limit is 90km/h instead, that's still a total of 180km/h being travelled.
So yes. The 680 has fewer lanes than the 580. But pushes a lot more data through the lanes it has, and has an identical memory bandwidth as the 580. But with TONS more benefits included...such as the new 28nm production of the new chips.
I should note that all the info I have on this has been leaked on various asian sites. Meaning...there is a possibility that the card is nothing like what we know of it. But from specs and benchmarks we've seen...it is going to be a phenomenal card. But I should also add that Nvidia is expected to bring a much higher end card to the market by the end of 2012 that is the full potential of the new kepler line. So if you can wait...then wait. Because the new ones will be a 512 bit bus, and run on pcie 3. So you'll need to get a new motherboard and cpu (ivy bridge intel) to utilize it. If you can't wait or don't want to rebuilt your entire computer, 680 will likely be your best bet. Just wait for benchmarks and the rumoured march 23rd release. wink.gif
If your options are between a SINGLE 680, or DUAL 580's....I'd probably go with the 580's. But single card vs. card the 680 is a much better unit.
Also. Thanks for the policy update info. I wish I could have taken that option when they were shipping B model monitors. I have 2 (or is it 3? I can't always see them) bad pixels. And they don't actually interfere and I don't see them unless I look for them. But I can be a tiny bit OCD about that stuff. tongue.gif I just ordered one of the zero-defect tempered glass + speakers units from Green-sum. I'm a little worried as he had me purchase it and make payment for it outside of eBay.



Thank you!

I'm more of a single card solution guy smile.gif I know better stuff is always comming, but i have been hanging on my GTX285 for quiet a while now. and I feel like its time to upgrade tongue.gif
Also, im quiet happy with my current I7 920 @ 3.6ghz. for my use, it has more then enough power! i won't really benefit from getting more CPU power. (only if i had to do it, to get more GPU power aswell)... but, everything has its price!

I guess ill buy the 680, and if there is any problems (2560x1440 @ 100hz) etc. I'll just return it, and buy one or two 580's

Hopefully my monitors will get shipped today, I just found out that they held everything back, because they were confused what to do with my 3 orders :~(
Don't try to explain and request to much, I guess.

Did you just order? I think 100hz catleaps are all sold out, ebayers only shipping C revisions now.

I ordered first Sunday, second Tuesday, third Wednesday.
dont think they shipped anything yet. (first i canceled aswell, because they were out of stock, so when they arrive it will for sure be the C model)

I ordered the Glass version, and the Glass+Speaker version.
hopefully they are still in stock @ B's..

If not, i count on Scribby to find the solution for this wink.gif

If he can find a way to do it I may start buying the zero defect ones, upgrading them to 100hz, and selling them locally for major profit. =D It's like the apple display, only faster! and...less/no warranty. tongue.gif

Look at it this way, 680 is $550 vs $340 for the 580 on sale. The actual specs of the card are out, MicroCenter has gotten the product sheet already, and has been uploaded by some workers.
No doubt its a fast card, but any card with a 256bit bus starts to choke at high res with high AA. Doesnt matter how fast the ram is, thats why clocking the ram to certain speeds stops giving gains. And 4Gb on a 256bit bus is just a waste.

Kyle at [H] has already said it trades blows with the 7970 and isnt what everyone is expecting, because everyone is expecting a full high end Keplar, which the 680 is not. Itll be faster then the 580 yes, but not worth $200 more. The best deal to get now is two 480s for $210 at newegg.



My monitor made it one state over, but still says Tuesday frown.gif

My monitor has been in Amsterdam since the 13th, and has shown no progress at all since then. Oh well, as long as it gets here in one piece I don't really care, as I currently don't have anything to put it on.
I ordered a new desk to go with it, but it came in this morning with the desktop being completely knackered.. And the replacement will get here in right about 10 work days..... hairysmiley.png

Hey guys,

I am new here but since I received a catleap, I figured I would put in my observations.

I ordered the catleap on 3/9 and received it by 3/12. Super fast shipping, I was surprised.

Now, I received a 2C2 model but I was able to overclock my monitor to 84hz given the settings earlier in this forum. While it does seem smoother, how can I tell I am actually receiving 84hz and not 60? or 65? That everyone is reporting that the 2C2 goes up to?

CCC is reporting 84hz. My monitor is not displaying any weird lines/artifacts. I do not know if this makes a difference but I am using a 7970 with 2 dell 2007wfps at 75hz.

I also have a ZR2740w monitor sitting right above my catleap on a monitor arm but its not plugged in.

Enable VSync and try a game with an fps counter.

How does the Catleap compare to your ZR2740w in gaming?

@dsp9753: If your monitor is actually working at high refresh rate it'd be significant information, as I don't think we've had any reports yet of C variants doing so.

I ordered a tempered glass + speakers version of the monitor (my second one, first was a 2C no-glass no-speaker) on the 14th in hopes of getting a B; I got a message back from green-sum that even those units have to come from the factory, so they have no back stock left for them. He also said there was some issue at the factory causing a delay, so the monitor should get shipped out some time early next week.
