I've been trying to get a 680 a month now and every time they restock I'm either not home or they sell out instantly. I ended up just buying a 7970 for $470 =/

I went different brands because I decided to go SLI after buying the MSI and I just bought the first card from a brand I trust as soon as it came available.

Galaxy went into Newegg availability just 17 mins after your post.

Edit: Boy got to be right on top of it. Gone within 2 mins. Looks like they are adding them now. I'm sure another brand will be trickled in very soon. Looks like the witching hour.

Sorry to hear that Piskoooo - like the 7970 it was constantly OOS close to two months after launch date before yields were keeping up with demand and limited supply. When they started the 7950 launch availability for the 7970 got much better. We'll see the same trend here.

lol of course, I watch two YouTube videos and they get listed then sell out right away. I'm just going to wait a month or so and hopefully the hype will die down.

Do you think we'll regret buying the 2GB 680 when the 4GB one gets released? There'll probably be some games needing more than 2GB ram in 12 months.

One is almost out:

palit 4gb gtx 680

Not one bit on a single monitor and res up to 2560x1600 which it renders fantastically. Read the HardOCP GTX 680 Review and check out the multiple monitors on one card up to 5760x1200 resolution gaming benchmarks.

Not one bit of regret unless your on multiple monitors and want that extra FPS. On single monitors of any res it's not going to improve FPS so you won't regret it.

A great example is BF3 multiplayer where it's the most VRAM intense game out and it's not an issue with VRAM hungry games. Single monitors aren't going to require more VRAM and the 2GB's are going to be fine into 2013 I'd speculate. smile.gif

Have there even been any rumors about pricing for one of the 4GB models? Hell, at this point I'd imagine they'd be about the same as the scalper prices I'm seeing for the 2GB model on Ebay and some of the Amazon retailers.

Here is the card. Nothing unique and the design is still based on Nvidia’s reference card.

Basic Specs Below:
•GPU Core Clock: 1006MHz (Boost Clock:1058MHz)
•Memory: 2048MB GDDR5 6008Mhz


gtx680IO.jpg

Video Output Function
•Dual-link DVI-I x 1
•Dual-link DVI-D x 1
•DisplayPort x 1
•HDMI x 1

Power are being draw out from 2x 6Pins PCIE Power Connector. With the previous GTX 580 it was 1x 6Pin and 1x 8Pin


For the test system I used the following configuration:

gtx680test.jpg

Processor: Intel Core i7 3960X @ Stock & OC Speed
Cooler: Thermaltake Advanced Frio
Motherboard: MSI X79A-GD65 8D
Memory: Kingston HyperX Genesis Special Edition 2x2GB DDR3 2133MHz
Harddisk: OCZ Technology Agility 3 160GB
PSU: Antec TPQ 1200W
Software: Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit, Futuremark Bench Softwares (3dmark06, 3dmark Vantage, 3dmark11), Heaven, CPU-Z, GPU-Z, MSI Afterburner 2.2.0 Beta 15


•3dmark06 - 36639

So that’s it for the MSI N680GTX-PM2D2GD5 short test.

Got a EVGA superclocked the other day. Love it so far biggrin.gif It was a downgrade from my sli 480's but it's such a better card I don't care. Can run 3Dmark11 at 1250 core.
