GTX 680 and Battlefield 3 performance - Page 3

post #21 of 50
GTX580 SLI is faster but because SLI vs Single card 60fps with GTX680 will feel same as 80fps from GTX580 SLI.

No one 680 is not enough for a rock solid 60fps with all settings maxed out. You'r 580's have way more power then one 680 and therefor you will lose performance big time.

I use one monitor at 1920x1080 (maxed settings except MSAA off) and with an overclock hit 70-100+ FPS depending on what's going on in the game. Only have seen one map so far where I'd drop below 60 randomly.

Have you considered the EVGA step up program. You can step up within 90 days to the next latest and greatest by paying the difference that way you can have your cake and eat it, too. I'll be satisfied with just 2x reference models. Just One Man's Opinion.

Maybe these will help or not help, but it looks like the 1x 680 does just as good if not better than 1x 590 in BF3. Again, I don't konw if this will help or not, but maybe worth investigating.

How much do you think the 4GB FTW edition from EVGA would cost at release?
post #26 of 50
I have no idea, but you may want to check the pricing pattern of the 500 series to get an idea.

My cards are Asus not Evga mate.

I see me waiting till early summer and selling my MSI gtx580 and going with the 680.. I should easily get 300 for my card making the 680 quite affordable.

I was looking at going with a second 580 but that would require a PSU upgrade... any dough I save on buying a second card as opposed to a 680 would be lost with the psu cost.

This card is looking amazing.

I do not agree with your Lucid Virtu MVP as a reason to get a 680.
Firstly, it only last 30 days there is no way as of yet to purchase a full version.
It boosts ur BENCHMARK scores, but in real world application and gaming it does not boost ur fps. Actually, people on xtremesystems.org have complained about it lowering their FPS by 10-20.

Honestly, I would stay with the SLI 580s. I'm not sure if you have the 3gb 580s or the 1.5 gb. If you have the 3gb version. You're better off with that. Personally, I am waiting for the 4gb 680 from EVGA before I buy one. Who knows I might change my mind because the GK110 are going to be released in 6 months and I might wait for that even. The 780 might just last as long as the 580. The 580 was king from Nov 2010 to Jan 2012. The 480 was replaced 6 months later by the 580.

They are the 1.5GB models. Is GK110 going to be released in 6 months time or is that just speculation?
