So like, I got this email from Newegg about the 680 being released, and it's now the 22nd. LoL!! No cards on newegg yet!

It's real slow here, but everything else loads in 1 to 2 seconds.

Very good tweaktown review, they used old 300.83 driver so all other reviews should show higher performance with 300.99 driver.

I was impressed with the card. I didn't really expect it to perform that good. I think Nvidia have done a fantastic job creating this.

And that's why people should have waited for Kepler.

Also my bank account. I've been waiting for this for months now and it's every bit as awesome as I'd hoped.

I think I'll get one unless I see a hefty price cut from AMD (nana2)

I'm glad the HardOCP review shows these cards playing well at 5760x1200. I was concerned the 2GB wouldn't be enough compared to the 3GB onboard my 580s (although it still might not be enough for those running at 7680x1600). But now I'm thinking of picking a couple of 680s up. My only concern now would be a fast refresh from NVIDIA that would bring out their full blown Kepler architecture.

damn I had one in my cart at newegg and after putting payment info in, it kicked back saying it was no longer in stock :(

I thought once you added it to the cart, it was considered yours. guess not.

They're totally sold out now :(

Wait, what only 4 PWM? what happened to 5...:thumbdwn:

Like i mentioned in another thread, im not impressed for what they demand, once you crank up the settings its barely ~20% - 40% faster then 580gtx.. By min fps its even less, ~5-15% and this is what matters to me the most, idc about high avg i want fast min fps, ok there is a rare exception but that's to be expected. Dunno if i would want to pay such high price for that.

I will rather wait for that true next-gen GK110.:)

I would be partially to blame for that. My two EVGA GTX 680's from NewEgg will be here tomorrow :angel2:
