Default Re: Official GeForce GTX 680 Benchmark Thread!

I'd really like to see a 7970 vs 680 comparison done with actual retail cards.

I spent 2hrs going thru that thread over @ ocn started by Murlocke and it appears to me that the review cards for the 680 were "cherry picked" and that alot of users either aren't getting those 1300mhz clocks...or they aren't testing stability properly.


More info please.

I need a new gfx card

I'd upgrade that CPU before getting another gpu. I can guarantee you that the phenom is already holding your current card back.

I highly doubt that. Especially with it knocking @ 4GHz.

If that's the case then my stock 920 w/HT disabled should be holding my 5870 back. Or are you going to argue a stock 920 with HT disabled is faster than a PhII 965 @ 3.9GHz? Not likely.

Yes.

Either way. You are correct though, his CPU wouldn't hold back a 680.

Seems to me the CPUs are roughly equivalent if you average it all out. Didn't realize the 920 had such a lead though.

It most definitely will. A buddy of mine went from 15-25 fps in some dungeon scenarios in swtor to 40+ just by going from a 965BE @ 3.9GHz to a 2500k @ 4.5. It's not going to be like that in every game, but it certainly is in some.

Edit: And he was only using a 6950

In some games it certainly will.

Maybe if you play at 1680x1050 low settings.

Or 1920x1200 on max settings

Highly unlikely you will see a CPU "bottleneck" with 1920x1200 max with aa/af.

Well you can talk about it all you want, I've literally seen the before and after and there is a difference.

I've been following the GTX 680 overclocking thread over on ocn, and people are seriously getting frustrated. What I find even more comical is that there are a few over there that are avidly defending the card, even with it's crippled voltage control and overclocking headroom. The performance at stock is very good, don't get me wrong. I just wish that for $500 that nvidia would give it's users a little bit more control over the hardware.

I'm really hoping that custom PCB designs will be have voltage tweaking built in so that this mess can be laid to rest. When in the last 5 years or so has a high-end card not allowed you to tweak the voltage for better overclocks?

Come on nvidia, you're killing your core audience here.
