[Various] NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 Review: Retaking The Performance Crown - Page 8

Bingo. It's a game of push and pull. What nvidia gained in overall gaming performance, they lost in GPGPU performance. Remember, this a field that nvidia themselves actually invented, and now their new cards aren't up to snuff with even the equivalent Fermi variants on this front.

On the plus side, nvidia realized that gaming graphics cards should be about one thing: gaming. That's good. on the negative side, if you were thinking about folding, might want to stick with a previous gen fermi-based solution. wink.gif

Amazing card, well done NVidia applaud.gif With this kind of performance from nvidia for $500 79XX series should go down in price at least $100. Good job green team.

AGAIN:

You do realize the full drivers for compute aren't even released for the gtx 680 yet and the current ones are missing quite a bit of functionality, right? Comparisons cannot be made yet.

And yes, that DOES include folding as not implemented properly. Please stop saying things with no info even available at all whatsoever that you don't have any idea on. Some google'rs will see it and believe it... first you started claiming the gtx 680 was bad performance, then that it would be priced higher... then you claimed it consumed more power, now you're saying its compute performance sucks: all but the last one were already proven wrong at the times you said them, and the last one cannot be known yet by anyone.

I'm really liking the look of this GTX 680 since i only game but for all people saying bad things about 7970 owners, please. AMD has a card that trades blow with the GTX 680 and the 7970 can OC like a beast and at highest OC level, i think they're on par to each other. However the 7970 is king in computing power yet the GTX 680 is worse than the previous generation. I think the 7970 is a very well round card while the GTX 680 is what gamers want. You have nothing to bash about the 7970 honestly.

At 2560 ~ 5% faster
At 1920 ~10% faster
Impressive gpu anyway especially considering watt/size/performance. Absolutely something new from Nvidia thumb.gif

Ouch, remember when people said that the GTX680's 2GB RAM wouldn't be enough for Skyrim on multimonitors with max AF/AA?

Hahaha, I can resist GK104, It's impressive for sure but it isn't mind blowing....

GK110 should get me to sell my cards and actually see a performance gain from doing so.

Kratos lives through another battle!

This is the only time I'll ever endorse a "Coexist" bumper sticker tongue.gif Also, I am reserving judgement on compute until I see how well it performs in CUDA applications and F@H.
