[TPU] GeForce GTX 680 Features Speed Boost, Arrives This Month, etc., etc. - Page 25

Some more rumours gathered from the internet:

GeForce GTX 680 and 670 Ti Vapor Chamber Cooling Exposed, Details Pictured

Most interesting piece of information:
Quote:
As latest rumors suggest, NVIDIA may release both GeForce GTX 680 and 670 Ti on the same day. Both cards would be based on the same gpu, which is GK104.

User of Expreview forums has posted benchmarks estimates in 3DMark 11 with Extreme Preset. We made a simple graph to present them.

232

(GTX 680 @ stock clocks) by Expreview

(Source)

This is on some beta 300.83 drivers, with the release of the cards or somewhere between 12th and 26th of March 300.83 ForceWare will be released. Apparently 300.83 just gave the GTX 680 the boost to beat the HD 7970.

Difference between GTX 680 and GTX 670Ti is only clocks. GTX 680 will be somewhat north of $500 and GTX 670 Ti somewhere in the range of $299 - $350.



Then there's a second article with "performance numers" leaked by Vr-Zone

Is this the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 performance?

448

(GTX 680 @ 1050/1425 MHz core and memory respectively) by Vr-Zone

(Source)

3dmark11 numbers do not line up, but that could be because Expreview uses X system scores and Vr-Zone could be either system or GPU score. In case of a system score, a lesser GPU could easily cause the discrepancy.

Again, these are all rumours and thus non-confirmed (great deduction skills eh tongue.gif?), so keep that in mind.

Don't flame the messenger please smile.gif

I absolutely love the vapor coolers on the 570 and 580! So glad that Nvidia decided to continue with that trend redface.gif Monday isn't all that far away now... all these rumors and theories can finally be put to rest.

The conflicts are strong.
The interwebs has done a great job crossing my eyes. We still don't know if the GK104 is the 670 or 680.

Paper launch still on for Monday?

GTX 670Ti and GTX 680 are both full GK104 chips with the GTX 670Ti having ~705MHz clock and GTX 680 having 950MHz+ clock. That is according to the latest rumours.

So the 670 must have the 1500 shaders with 500 cut out?

Makes little sense to me that a underclocked card would cost 150-200 dollars less than the overclocked one. If that's the case does it mean that the 680 would  have a low overclock headroom? 

 

500 dollars for a card that barely surpasses a 7970 is very disappointing.

If this is true, it amazing how the GK104 only requiring two six pin connectors at 256 Bit is at the same perfomance level of a 7970. Rumors also speculated the GK 107 & 110 won't be out until Dec which could be the guns needed when the 7970 refresh 8970 is released. Quite interesting.

Power draw went down as performance went up. A lot of confident naysayers that Nvidia couldnt do this will be eating crow if this pans out.

Dynamic over clocking might be the reason it's getting these higher results. If the base Core is 1050Mhz the FPS in the grid might be a result to the auto over clocking during critical moments in the game. Thus we might not be sure what MHz it bumped itself to achieve the results. Will be interesting to see what OC we ourselves will be able to push the cards and if in fact dosent even out with the 7970 that's over clocked itself.

The 7970 is a great card and has some 200Mhz OC capability. I'm hoping the new fab Nvidia cards will be the same respectably. I'm going to assume it will based off the same fab. Guess time will tell.

Too bad no word on the GK 107 & 110 expected time frame isn't out yet. I was hoping to get my hands on the GK 110 384 Bit card.

I'm hoping the vapor cooling is as quite as I've grown accustom to full throttle on my 580 carries over to the new release. I cant see why not? Going to be interesting to see what a MSI Lightning or EVGA Claasified non-reference GTX 680 will bring to the table. smile.gif

Aren't most HD 7970's going for ~$560+?

I don't care if these cards are :insert number: months late to the party, but performance dictates pricing, and if any of these Kepler cards slated to launch March 12th surpasses the HD 7970 performance wise at ~$500, that's a win in my book.

Both have 1536 shaders.

Or rather the GK104 that couldn't hit their clock targets become GTX 670Ti. It desn't sound logical to me either since there's no way the GTX 680 is attractive at that price point then, or you must have the fastest of the fastest. On the other hand something similar already happened with GTX 480 and GTX 470. The GTX 480 was not that much faster than the GTX 470 either at same clocks while GTX 480 was $499 and GTX 470 $349. Well aside from the fact that nVidia is now 2 months late and has the better physics (GTX 680 has a 195W TDP as reported by multiple sources).

Isn't the GK107 a lower end part? According to the old roadmap, 108 and 106 are low end, so figure 107 would be too.
