Its actually not by the looks of it. In fact, on average, it might be worse in power/heat. Average power use/heat while gaming was slightly lower, but idle power is significantly higher. So unless you only turn on your PC when playing a game and then turn it off, chances are you'd use more power with the 680.

GTX 680 games benchmarks performance are very good if compared to other reviews. It has excellent GPGPU in CUDA with MediaEspresso 6.5 and wondered why DirectCompute and OpenCL are performed poorly, it likely to be driver issues. Noise levels are absolutely fantastic and it slight quieter than Radeon HD 7950. I will wait for 4GB card after heard that 1080p 4xAA used up 2GB memory in BF3.

Found the post from Gibbo from Overclockers UK, the good news is that GTX 680 will be cost less than Radeon 7970 and the bad news is there will be no higher end GK110 for consumer in August as GTX 680 is the fastest single chip for 2012, the next fastest chip will be dualchip GTX 690 due in May. GK110 are reserved for Tesla for professional market but you can still get the card with modded driver to play games for $3000.

I think Gibbo gave away the hint that GTX 680 could cost less than 400.

Yes..it involves, a dark room, lots of lube and gimp mask...and waiver to all future earnings of streaming the video live in the internet

No, I will definitely check on Friday 23rd to see if brick/mortar shops are selling Keplar and at what prices.

Regardless, I'm sure you've got three in Tri-Sli already.

EDIT: you're kinda' like our new jAkUp- he always had the cards before they were available, being that he works for e-VGA. Man, wish he posted more. It always added a level of excitement as he'd drop hints about the cards days before launch, kinda' helped build up the hype.

No GK110?
Anyway I've had ATI cards for the last 3.5 years and I hope its time to give nvidia a chance.
