[Various] NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 Review: Retaking The Performance Crown - Page 5

post #41 of 880
Has anyone seen any reviews with any Sli benchmarks.

Thread Starter 
With this pricing the GTX 680 is bi-winning. It ridicules the 7970 above it and still gives the 7950 $50 below it a run for its money, two of the competing products destroyed with one, how efficient biggrin.gif.

I'm confused about the GTX 680 overclocking...can people overclock it AND it does the boost? Cause all these reviews show the stock 680 plowing through overclocked 7970's and I gotta wonder what would happen when the 680 is overclocked.

In some cases, BF3 especially, 680 is really impressive. It consumes less power then 7970 too, so ppl talking about AMD striking back are wrong, there is no room to do that, and even if there is nVidia has more room. They did it by sacrificing compute power and it shows what a great job AMD did. For the first time nVidia is not leading this area. But for gaming 680 is the clear winner (except in few cases like Crysis)

Well... Nvidia is back. Let's just forget that fermi ever happened right? tongue.gif

Now just release the high end chip and take all my money.

This said, if the future of PC gaming looks iffy then this is going to be the last real push by Nvidia and AMD in this market.

BF3 Gulf of Oman its calling you out for a match.. full 64 player server wink.gif

OT:

amazing card.. what a great change in the POV of nvidia: LOWER power comsumption, even better performance, i really like the adaptative VSYNC, the turbo boost its very interesting too, finally multi monitor with 1 card, etc...

i cant imagine how its going to bet the "mid" range cards (7850/70 equivalent) !! eek.gif

good job Nvidia thumb.gif

from hardwarecanuck review, max turboboost they recorded is 1150Mhz...so, from there we can safely assumed, that is its stock clock..nVidia did clocked GTX680 aggressively...and, max manual OC they can achieved is 1275Mhz..with stock volt..

OMG the power efficiency, it uses the same power as a GTX560 Ti! I could comfortably run TWO of these fully overclocked on my 760w Seasonic with tons of room to spare!

And jesus christ I don't know what they did with this card but it seems to have been MADE for bf3:
