How much of a wait?A couple of months?June? August? Why not wait for the AMD 8xxx series coming late 2012 then?
The waiting game is one you cannot win IMHO.
I think this time around the major card in the game will be pricing.If the GTX 680 ends up around 7970 performance or 10% faster even, at the same price is was not worth the wait.If it come 100 or 150$ cheaper thats another story and probably my next card.

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.

680-> X3200~3300
(7970)-> X2700~2800
670Ti -> X2500~2600
(7950) -> X2200~2300


PHK also mentioned that GTX 680 has max TDP 195W and fan will have low noise.

More pics of GTX670Ti/680 PCB

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.

If that's for real, its impressive for a mid range card.

Yes and we probably could see some early reviews at weekend who are not signed NDA.

The same site posted the first pic of GTX 670Ti card, the admin played with the card confirmed that GTX 670Ti at reference clock is 5% behind the performance of Radeon HD 7970 and admin flashed the bios update gave GTX 670Ti 40% performance boost over Radeon HD 7970, it used the same 1536 CUDA cores as GTX 680.

Wow very impressive.

Sounds like they just got a huge overclock out of it.

The 7970 is still a fantastic card. At present, it is the most powerful single GPU card around. I'm sure you won't be disappointed in it. If you really want to go the Nvidia route, wait until Kepler launches and then sell the 7970. You will still get good money for it.
