NVIDIA‚??s Kepler ¬*is finally here and after months of waiting, we finally get to see the first card with this new architecture: ¬*the GTX 680. ¬*The GTX 680 is based around a GK104 core and 2GB of GDDR5 memory but what really makes it stand out from the competition is NVIDIA new focus upon power efficiency coupled with class leading performance. ¬*Bucking their past trends, NVIDIA expects this card ¬*to beat the HD 7970 in benchmarks while consuming significantly less power and costing less than its AMD competitor. ¬* ¬*Sounds too good to be true, doesn‚??t it?
