Hello there,

I'm sure as you read this review there may have been tears shed, hair pulled out, foreheads banged against hard surfaces, screams and curses uttered, more tears, frustration, and exhaustion only to realize that you're still contemplating between the GTX 680 and the infamous 7970.

Being an owner of a XFX Dual Dissipation Black Edition 7970 Factory OCed to 1000M (currently the fastest 7970), I was skeptical of purchasing a GTX 680 due to numerous rumors that claim they have similar performances. Being a compulsive shopper I bought it. I ran many tests and here's what I found:

After comparing benchmarks with both cards on 3DMark and Heaven, the GTX 680 and 7970 traded blows with each other. Keep in my mind that my 7970 is faster than the reference 7970s. In games such as Battlefield 3, the GTX 680 performed faster by 5-12% in terms of FPS on 2560x1440 resolution with Maxed Ultra settings 0xAA. If you have a monitor with 1920x1080 or 1680x1080, you'll see a 20-35% gain in performance on Maxed Ultra settings 0xAA (as proven by popular websites such as hardcanuck, overclock.net etc). I was afraid the 680's 2GB VRAM was insufficient to render so many pixels on a 2560x1440 (just like how many GTX 580 1.5GB users experienced on this resolution which is why they released a 3GB version), but to my surprise it did a fine job and still gained lead over the 7970 by 5-10%. I won't go into too much details since there are TONS of respected websites that do, but I hope this preview from a consumer, like yourself, gives you a good idea of how the GTX 680 performs.

Having read through so many GTX 680 reviews, it all comes down to asking who is the real winner here? On a clock to clock basis, they trade blows with each other.

Just got this card in the mail last night. I had my HD 5850 Overclocked to 900Mhz and i still could only play BF3 at medium to low settings with a average of 20-40FPS. This card right out of the box held 60+ FPS on Ultra settings with 4x MSAA at 1080p on my 42" 120hrz HDTV ( my monitor ). I overclocked it to 1.3Ghz in less than 20Minutes with no previous know how of precision X. memory at 3.5Ghz as well. You must set a custom fan profile if you want the card to stay under 70c ( which it must or the card will throttle its self and you will loose your GPU boost preset ). mine average 65-68c with 85% fan. It blow hot air out the back like a space heater but its a cool running card compared to gtx 580/590 ect. its a bit loud compared to my system that runs nearly silent. my rigs a HALF 922 with Intel i2600k at 5Ghz. with overclock i get 85-130FPS in BF3. Amazing card. I had ordered a ASUS 7970 Direct CU II TOP previously that was DOA! This was before the GTX 680 was released. Im glad that card was DOA actually because this card is amazing. I also can honestly say the drivers for this card are next to non. I know every one says that AMD drivers are not that great but im here to personally say that they are far inferior compared to Nvidia... sad because i love AMD and just upgraded from a CRosshair Formula 4/ Phenom x6 1090t thats now sitting on my shelf along with my AMD video card. Im off track but my old rig was good BUTTT my new rigs smokes my old one hands down and was worth the $ and then some. Great card and i recomend it to any one who has that CASH. I was thinking i might have to SLI this card with another GTX 680 but this card OVERCLOCKS so well i wont have to in the near or far future. Without a overclock it still tears wholes through ULTRA setting on all games. CHEERS AND LET THE HEAD SHOTS BEGIN!

Purchased this item on release day on Amazon when it was on backorder. Surprisingly enough, my order went through and shipped on the same day! Got it the next day, since I paid for overnight shipping. Had to pay sales tax though, since I had it shipped to New York. Sigh.

Anyway, more about the card.

This thing is huge! Significantly larger than my old GTX 560 Ti (which died on me and had RMA'ed). Performance-wise, the card pushes most games out today at Ultra. It easily gets 80-100 fps in Battlefield 3. Most of the time I have it set with V-Sync turned on, though, so it uses less power and runs cooler. The GPU overclocks like a beast, too. Got it running at around 1227 MHz stable on my first try. I reckon I can push it much further than that, but it seems unnecessary at this time.

Temperature-wise, the stock cooler on this card surprisingly performs really well. It runs much cooler than my GTX 560 Ti, which used to run at 85C. The stock cooler is really silent on idle up until the 75% mark. By the time you reach the 85% (max) fan speed, the card's fan gets fairly loud.

One thing to note, though: When overclocking, this card will start to slightly downclock the GPU core once the temperature hits 70C, which is fairly peculiar since 70 degrees is practically cool enough for a GPU. This is one more reason why I won't tinker with the Power Target just yet until my GTX 680 Backplate & High-flow bracket arrives (as increasing voltages would increase temps).

But on stock GPU clocks, I've got it barely hitting 65C with a slightly more aggressive fan curve (which is variable in EVGA Precision X).
