    Hmmm at 1920X1200+4XAA which is my point of interest, the 680 is 30% faster than a 580 and 10% faster than a 7970.

    Personally I am looking at +50% more performance when upgrading my gpus at a fair price level for the new product. So the 680 would be more than perfect to replace my 570s, but at this price I can forget it.

    I hope the GTX 670 will only come with one SMX disabled and will retain the memory bandwidth. With these specs and running at 680's clocks, it could still give me the much desired +50% from my 570. Maybe in SLI mode Nvidia willl provide some better scaling for the 6XX cards, which will make things even better.

    Still, I can't shake the thought that the GK100 is coming and these babies will lose their value too quickly.

    I think I'll wait until the castrated versions of the GK100 come out.

    Hmm, aside from the 680 moniker, 2 SLI fingers per card also says high end.

    Who knows about that GK100..

    Was kinda hoping for a reason to go from 580SLI->7970 or 680 (single card of either)...but no. :(

    I have been in the market for video cards for a while now to upgrade my overclocked 285s. However reading Anandtech's review, it seemed like Nvidia will have refreshes lined up for these cards as the year goes on as the manufacturing process matures. I think while I am impressed, I will hold off until the newer refreshes come out. I think ATI will also be countering with newer releases. All that should lead to a bit of a price drop. I think I will wait though I really am hankering for an SLI upgrade.

    Why are anand scores so that much more impressive than the rest?

    This sums up my thoughts..

    Yup, nice card but no good for me. Will probably pick up the big dog whenever that arrives.

    Seeing how good Nvidia midrange GK is performing, I am getting even more annoyed by AMD pricing of their SI lineup...$549 for tahitiXT...like what were they thinking?? Why you hold back new generation GPU? Why you no make price/perf small die strategy again? If they had gone for something like $449..i bet the DX11.1/PCIe3.0 GPU landscape today will be more interesting...is the GK110 only coming in August?

    1) Because they can charge a lot when they're alone on the new market
    2) Because they want their share of the GPGPU-cake too?
    3) Tahiti is still smaller than Cayman for example

    Availability was slim anyway, wasn't it? They didn't lose anything at 549 and gained some $

    Meaning, at 549, newegg 7970 stock tended to be in and out...your argument makes some sense if they had a flood sitting on the shelves.

    So 7990 in your future eh? :razz:

    Yeah. Same here though even if I did pick this one up it would be quite the MASSIVE upgrade for me.

    I have a GTX285 and I am hankering for a new card. The 680 has a lower TDP than my 285 and it is much faster. I think it may be quieter too. Also going from 55 nm to 28 nm is almost halving it so that is a nice factoid.

    What's the price supposed to be? I can't seem to find it anywhere.

    Anyway, looks like a nice card, I've not looked at Anand's review yet, he tends to be a bit more thorough than most sites, usually including compute scores and such also, but from what I've seen it looks promising.

    The card is fairly petite, and the shroud design is in any case far superior to my own 6970s, making me tempted to check these cards out for a nice SLI setup. I don't like to favor Nvidia's scummy proprietary shenanigans with PhysX and now FXAA or whatever they're calling it and similar, but when AMD insists on dropping the ball so badly repeatedly with driver fuckup after fuckup, then what's a guy supposed to do...?

    honestly the 680 aint that impressive (specwise) its also strange the little
    attention they give to opencl considering thats Fermi strongest aera
    this card looks like a __milking__ product along with:
    ___HD7770 ( you should ave all feature on that one ;))
    ___HD7870 ( said to replace the 5870 (amd), but specs don't match, the succesor is mostly the 7950)

    really surprising 580 is faster(OCL) than 680, they arch are pretty much the same. drivers maybe?
    some feature may also be uneccesary:
    ___vsync
    ___ gpu boost ( OC )
