Re: No GTX680 until Q2 2012
PHK got the press kit.
Kyle from [H] got the fact wrong that GTX 680 will be slower than Radeon HD 7970 in 3DMark 11. I think Kyle later soon will finish upcoming GTX 680 review got the impression that GTX 680 is faster than Radeon HD 7970 and will switch to GTX 680 from Radeon HD 7970.
PHK got the first benchmark numbers in for 3DMark11 confirmed GTX 680 will be faster than Radeon HD 7970.
670Ti -> X2500~2600
(7950) -> X2200~2300
PHK also mentioned that GTX 680 has max TDP 195W and fan will have low noise.

If GTX 680 will have much lower temp and quiet or nearly silent fan than GTX 470/480/570/580 then I probably will buy GTX 680 over GTX 670Ti.
