No sane person would be 'ok' with that, even if they were in denial about it. People don't like the feeling of being ripped off and as I had intended to buy a 680 that day, I can say that this is exactly how I would have felt on May 10th.

Now you're being silly. Everyone pays a premium for a reference on launch. I could've waited for an OC version of the 680, but I didn't want to, so of course I think it's OK for a faster card with better cooling to perform as good. That's the way things are. Good things come to those who wait. Should I've waited 10 more months for an 780 and throw it in your face?

How about we compare a stock ref. 670 with a stock ref. 680, and then both OC'd version. I'm just posting my reference numbers. That's all, not trying to make anyone feel guilty or justified about anything. It's all good.

This isn't about you and I. It's about whether or not nVida has a case to answer for.
It's about the choices of consumers today who can spend $670 on a card that has 3% better performance than a $145 cheaper card being released in two days.

I could not care less what occurs in 10 months time - but for the record, I'd expect there to be something better for cheaper. But no I wouldn't expect it to happen within the next 7 weeks, which is how long it took for a reference 680 to become seemingly irrelevant. Not to mention those who have picked up a 680 in the last few weeks... hence why people say nvidia has a case to answer.

True, but I think it's a bit different when it's a card categorized as a lower end model in the same product lineup, same generation, and sold for less (presumably).

Stop being an asshat about it Mr. Consumer Reports.

true the price gap will be smaller. this card is even a non-reference oc model that is sure to cost more than other gtx670's. still though, you could be a bit less harsh in tone. the price gap will be bigger than the performance gap. that's the way it always is.

Anyway, the cat really is amongst the pigeon's now: 1400 core clock anyone? =]

My stock hit P9454. 1006/1071MHz

OC I hit P10092. 1181/1234MHz

Fine, but I never once said anything negative about the GTX670, though. I just wanted to point out that a reference 680 can compete with an OC 670, which is a handicapped 680 anyway. Like I said, you pay a premium for owning a flagship reference card first, that's all. All I was interested was benchmarks, not drama.

Chill out mate this isn't life, death or anything of significant importance.
I am talking in Australian dollar terms as this is the price I paid in AUD. Don't put words in my mouth. It's been done before but here again is how this correlates into USD:
AUD 680 = $670
AUD 670 OC = $525
(27% premium)
USD 680 = $499
USD 670 OC = $392
So yes, it may well be $425 as you suggest, but I never claimed $325 USD.

In denial about what? I paid $499 for owning a reference GIGABYTE GTX680 first day, and I don't regret a single day of owning it. I didn't come here to justify my purchase, just posting benchmarks.

He said in AUSTRALIA. I can't get a GTX680 for $499.. The cheapest i can get one for is about $650ish. Which does indeed makes it alot cheaper! (I don't know where OP is getting his prices from) but prices work differently here..
