NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 Launch Video Leaked: World's Fastest GPU

An alleged marketing video of NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 680, slated for after launch, got leaked and uploaded to YouTube by an Italian-speaking YouTube user (going by the Italian used in the description). The part that makes it look genuine is it features NVIDIA's VP for Corporate Marketing Ujesh Desai, holding the graphics card, and detailing it. He claims that NVIDIA set out to build the fastest GPU - "and accomplished it." The entire bouquet of new features introduced with the GeForce GTX 680 has been disclosed in the video, to great detail.

Watch the video (embedded from YouTube) after the break.

I don't remember nvidia making launch videos for past generations, or maybe I missed them?

Nice video but very heavy on marketing, although that's normal considering it's an official promo.

Already have them, just waiting for the cards to hit the retail channel. :)

Looks like Nvidia has a winner here, fast efficient, and hopefuly, if the rumors are true, priced to kill. :rockout:

I wouldnt call any percentage of being faster a fail when its a much smaller and efficient chip then the 7970

I want that fracture thing on games, everywhere, right now. That's what I've been waiting for almost a decade.

Yea, that's actually an amazing feature. I find just about everything in the video appealing, TXAA looks great, the dynamic fracturing could be a game changer, and the new fur mechanics could really help insert realism into games. If this thing is priced at $499, oh boy...

None of that matters. Price matters. Smaller doesn't necessarily mean efficient either.

hmmmm.....

Does anyone know if the new card will be available at microcenter right away? I've never checked after launch to see how soon they get them.

Well, that depends on game devs right?

And what about the dynamic clocks? That's pretty heavy stuff, from the graph the highest I've seen was 1.12 GHz - are these considered stock clocks in benchmarks? Does it run at default voltage?

What exactly is the point of GPU boost over just overclocking it full time?

Your card won't be stressed as much I suppose, and lower power consumption. Not every game needs a high overclock all the time.

Better efficiency and IIRC they also claim better/smoother overall gameplay

It is more to with staying within allocated TDP range. Overclockers don't really care much about that but now you aren't limited to the highest demanding game with your overclocks.
