Ehh, so they're essentially touting PhysX (destruction and fur) in that video? Who cares about PhysX, it's a selling point that affects a couple of games.

The most interesting part (GPU boost) they only covered for 1 minute. :(

Oh well, we should see more soon. :)

Pretty cool. There are some nice features on the 680 that are great engineering solutions, but I feel like Nvidia gets caught up in its marketing crap most of the time. :lol:

I wonder if you can tell it to be max all the time... **** that fluctuating crap!

Sure you can, but there's no need to. Just raise the power target and keep it underclocking, when you don't need it.

Its their new way to win benchmarks, while not actually adding anything to real world in game usefulness...

And my EVGA step-up expired last week. Well, it's not like my 580s have to work for a living - only BF3 make's 'em sweat. Still, I want to know what the 680s can do.

That's how you sell / shift your lot ;)

As a consumer it is up to you whether you believe that Laundry Suds A are that much better he Laundry Suds B...

COme on.....11 hours left!! sheesh and it will be 7990 and 690 and 685 rumors time lol

I actually would be interested to see this boost thing....ie in MMO Raids where you have a but tonne of particle effects from a group of players and the NPCs or even mass PVP

Hell in AoC I have turn particles off in Raids and it can get quite heaving in SWTOR minis too

Yea I know, but the majority of enthusiasts like us don't care about PhysX. A lot don't care about 3D. I was just saying if some of the rumors are true, there are other features to tout which I think blow the PhysX improvements away.

I'm really curious to see the CUDA performance. If it's good I may talk my research advisor into buying us a nice new shiny 680 for GPGPU. :)

If you are buying top dollar card, you may want to look at extras , and in that corner NV has 3D vision and PhysX as extra benefits! If a company doesn't market what it believes are its assets (despite the enthusiasts "knowing better") then they have failed :p

AMD has their benefits etc like Eyeinfinity and H3D!

Actually for, 3D vision is a thing I would like to get (but budget constraints) as I have spent a few hours on 3D vision booth here locally and was very impressed!

All I want to know is will TXAA work on ALL games (New and old, whether there are AA settings within the game or not).

It would be really nice to just set it globally, and then forget it.

It would aslo be nice if I could get all of my crappy "consolitus ported games" that don't have AA settings to have AA without having to use something like "inject FXAA"

I love my 7970 so far. Id be interested in this card but i only play on 3 monitors. The benchmarks out look good but who gets a high end card for 1680 etc.. The gap seems to come to a close the higher the resolution. Id like to see triple monitor benchmarks.
