    Only teased last week, EVGA's factory-overclocked GeForce GTX 680s are becoming a reality, with the first one to get make it out being the GTX 680 SuperClocked. The SC model is based around NVIDIA's reference design but has a base clock of 1058 MHz (1006 MHz stock), a boost clock of 1113 MHz (1058 MHz), and a memory frequency of 6208 MHz (6008 MHz).

    The GeForce GTX 680 SC also packs 1536 CUDA Cores, a 256-bit memory interface, 2 GB of GDDR5 VRAM, a PCI-Express 3.0 bus interface, 3D Vision Surround and SLI support, and dual-DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort outputs.

    The 'vanilla' GTX 680 SuperClocked costs $519.99 while its backplate-equipped sibling goes for $529.99. Both should become available very, very soon.

    and the funny thing is that people who just by the standard reference non-oc models can buy that backplate for £23.....

    Backplates look so damn sexy!!!
    Next videocard i'm getting will have a backplate!
    Probally evga to
    Stock coolers are beatiful, i don't care about noise of the cards looks so awesome

    Good pricing for a factory OC'd card, same reported clock's as the other 1 bta posted the other day MSI it was I think? I wonder if that is a sign of what to expect?

    Do you really think that is the only reason for a backplate?

    I guess RAM heatspreaders are there only for rigidness.

    The backplate alone cost $20. So for $10 more over stock, is not bad for people who wants a backplate included.

    Nice card, but I would rather like to get a proprietary PCB and cooler instead of the reference kit .... =/

    OR you could save 20 and just move the slider to the right.

    sad oc like this -- Elite AMD servants????

    http://www.guru3d.com/article/geforce-gtx-680-overclock-guide/

    with 1250 clock speed offset brek throgh HD6990 -how ever this GPU about 24% smallerthan hd7970 and over 30% faster than in some games like battle field 3 (in stock clock)

    amd servants gonna servant

    You do realize in all actual gaming it is only 7% on average faster, despite its already 9% higher base clocks and 17% higher boost clocks? So saying it is more efficient when we level out the clock speeds is just false.

    It has equal or higher power consumption at everything but max load, which most games won't hit, and blu-ray.

    It is now creeping up in price, not due to Nvidia, but due to retailers. Same thing that happened to the 7970.

    Don't get me wrong it is a awesome card, but comparing this minor OC to almost every 7970 has hit 1200Mhz with a minor voltage bump, and that makes the 680 pee its panties.

    http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/NVIDIA/GeForce_GTX_680/31.html

    default voltage was used on the 7970 1075, increased voltage on the 680.

    http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Powercolor/HD_7950_PCS_Plus/30.html


    This 7950 with tuning will outperform a 680 out of the box at the same frequency for less money by a average of 4% if you want to look at bang for the buck.

    your right... so by your logic, if we downclock a 7950 to gtx 580 clocks, it would be slower so therefore the 580 is the faster card.

    GTX580 clocked at 770 mhz and hd6970 880mhz ? R u comparing much different technology's by clock??h

    so if we rising up gtx580 clock in last gen to 6970 clock amd go to hell bro W T F

    with much lower voltage in GTX680 you can reach to 1300~1400mhz and then the tahiti go to something LIKe piece of trash bro

    hd7970 has 4.3 billion transistor and GK104 just about 3.5 billion - most efficient gpu ever built

    if you wanna real comparing to this baby- so w8 for GK110/100


    UASs = Acronym( ultra amd stupid servants) doing like this brother .im sorry about this but this forum where overfilled amd fans in all ways-

    we let them up -haters gonna surrender

    you don't even need to compare it to AMD cards its only like 50Mhz on the core without boost and for EVGA's superclocked card which is stock 1000mhz thats a sad oc and is not worth the extra 10 bucks even with that plate

    theres gonna be alot more highly overclocked cards for the same price or less by the time the cards start to really trickle down

    to pioneer, . . . . . . . . fail, theres a difference between a stock overclock and a overclock you do your self which is never gaurenteed, they can overclock their cards to 1700mhz if they wanted to, that dosen't mean your card can.

    Would have been worth it if it came as the 4GB model in which I am patiently waiting for.

    BEST OCED RADEON HD 7970 LIGHTNING VS REFERENCE GEFORCE GTX 680, GEFORCE WINS!

    GeForce GTX 680, no voltage tweaks, only ocing out of the box: 1250/6400 MHz ...

    [​IMG]

    MSI Radeon HD 7970, no voltage tweaks, only ocing out of the box: 1200/7000 MHz

    [​IMG]

    now with OC

    GeForce GTX 680 at max, 1.18V - 1325/6600 MHz

    [​IMG]

    MSI Radeon HD 7970 Lightning on max, 1.35V - 1300/7600 MHz

    [​IMG]

    Score/Performance is +/- the same. BUT, Radeon is noisy as HELL with Power consuption with 1.35V (whole PC) 546W in that benchmark. GeForce GTX 680 with cheapo reference cooler is colder and still silent card. Power Consuption of GTX 680 at 1.18V (whole PC) is only 383W!!!. GeForce is winner here, the same performce with 163W better power consuption ... when reference GTX 680 better then best HD 7970 on market, imagine GTX 680 Lightning with better VRM ... will be absolute monster.

    546w vs 383W = 42% Deffrences

    with quiter than - cooler than -nether by stock cooler

    EPIC LOL

    I think I missed the funny part. :confused: All I see is a 3DMark 11 benchmark where the Nvidia card is doing what it is supposed to be doing according to just about every review site out there. Congratulations? This has nothing to do with the topic at hand either.
