From what I've seen briefly, a lot of the retail cards tend to top out around 1150MHz with the +50 boost (so 1200 turbo).
at stock volts they seem to be topping out around 1200mhz.
i love this thread, i just spent a while going thru it and the main fact everybody is missing is that this 680 is the gk104, it was designed to compete with the 7800s, not the 7900s that it is currently a match for.
then we have the fact that these early results from ln2 land are with early ic, not much binning has taken place yet so wait till k|ngp|n and the likes gets an above average sample, i hear zotac are binning their top cards for 2ghz boost, imagine how fast that will go under ln2.
and thats just the hardware, not mentioned that nv tend to take a couple of shots at the driver before they get it right. launch drivers aint worth a ****, give a couple of months and then look what each card is doing then and only then will it be a fair playing field.
