Default Re: No GTX680 until Q2 2012

So they're saying GK110 is 150% of GK104, that's a very sensibly sized chip (~450-490mm2) unlike the double GK104 previously rumoured which would weigh in at over 600mm2.

It sure does look tasty if it performs anywhere near 50% better than GK104, although that is unlikely. Pity it's so far off, they might end up calling it a 780 afterall with a refresh of the lower end chips to fill in the rest of the 7xx series by years end.

Will wait for gk110 depending on game releases... There is still only BF3 that is a soul reason for me to upgrade to Kepler, however price to performance it isnt looking good for GTX680 especially as i havent seen any software that makes use of this much power...Release teh games to play on uber cards then i will buy an uber card... I aint spending all that money to grow a big e-peen and gain a big number in 3dmark...Would anyone buy a $1000 console that is 3x faster than PS3 if there was no games for it except for backwards compatibility with PS2 and PS3 games ?

Unless you have a multi monitor setup and every DX11 game available i see no reason that kepler or 7900 for that matter need to be a day 1 purchase...

Yep it will be interesting to see...
Really? Man, My 480GTX runs fine at 2048x1152 res. Never really had any issues with a games performance, but I also might have my expectations a lot lower then yours. I don't care for 60FPS with every game.

These might be nice in SLi if the temps are low.

GTX 680 performance in benchmarks.



The only game GTX 680 losed to Radeon HD 7970 is Civilization 5 with 4x AA. Maybe GTX 680 with 4GB could help it.

That's weird considering nvidia usually dominates in Civ5. I mean how can the GTX680 lose when the GTX580 wins?

I checked techpowerup, GTX 580 losed to Radeon HD 7970 at 2560x1600 4xAA.

http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/AMD/HD_7950/11.html

GTX 680 benchmarks are probably done at 2560x1600.
