That puts an end to my 680 4GB Tri-SLI upgrade plan for good.

The only game that really matters to me is not running good at all right now.
Maybe it's just driver's at the moment.

Hope the performance in iRacing is good because after nV's GK110 Tesla tease today, a desktop version is far out and I can't be using the 580s for so long...
I'm waiting for GK110, from some of the information that has been teased states its possibly getting 3072 shader processors. What do you mean by its far out ? From what i understand the gk 110 will be used for a desktop card as well as the tesla's and should be available by the end of the year.

7.1 billion transistors, 2880 shader units if all clusters are enabled and a 384 bit memory interface.

So the first GK110 in Q4. Add a bit of delay to that and different scheduling for the desktop product and you'll end up with a 2013 release for the high-end desktop Kepler... Even the latest rumors indicate a 2013 release date.

That's too long for me. By then, it'll be time to upgrade the 680s again...
Ok im with you now, your probably right too a 2013 release is too far off. Was hoping to get GK110 by Christmas but if thats not possible i may have to get a GTX 680 soon and maybe add another at the end of the year.

I dont know that it will be much, if any faster. I'm still saying it a GPGPU only product. ~87% more units but running 43% slower means you end up, in raw numbers, only 7% faster than 680 GTX. Thats assuming perfect scaling, which we know doesn't happen. It would be lucky to break even with 680 GTX, except in DP, where its 3x faster than 680 GTX.

IMO, its a DP-upscaled Tesla-only part.

Nice. I'm looking forward to hear your thoughts on the 4 Gb versions and Surround.

I still can't find a good 4GB vs. 2GB GTX 680 Surround comparison review

that's because there's virtually no real performance difference between the cards. 2 gig card runs multi monitor games at virtually the same frame rate as the 4 gig card.

Can you run out of VRAM even with AA disabled? I usually turn it off in my quest for 120 fps minimum

Is there a way to view VRAM usage while a game is running?

Crysis 2 definitely maxed out the 2GB after looking, wow. That settles it. 2 x EVGA GTX 680 4GB FTW's being installed! Once they're in stock
