    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.

    Still waiting. This card could be my next, it is is that super!

    The only thing would let me stay with AMD, would be the price, since I'm not rich xD

    NVidia is being traded to the JETS? :eek:

    Seriously though, this card looks pretty damn sweet (if the marketing is true). The dynamic fracturing is an amazing looking feature, as well as the fur demo. Now if we can just get developers away from console ports maybe some of these features will ACTUALLY be included in games.

    Because the majority of buyers don't buy cards to overclock them manually.

    It seems to me that this would be something written into the game engine. Reuse of existing engines without physiX modifications to fracturable components would not make use of this.
    I would expect this to come over time and we will probably see something similar on all cards.
    Don't expect it overnight, though.

    Push the damned Physx tech already !
    I dunno why they don't already. Aside from the licensing fees, that might boost their graphics cards sales (albeit not by much).

    It's unfortunate really, we have the hardware (aparently) to have some pretty amazing features yet the developer's/coder's don't incorporate it into the proggies :eek:

    "GPU boost" is good to people (like me) that cannot OC the VGA.

    This fracture thing is very new and will probably be implemented in upcoming physx games, but don't expect widespread adoption as long as GPU-accelerated physx remains CUDA only. nvidia should port it to OpenCL and/or directcompute or let CUDA work on AMD cards.

    All the PhysX stuff will only work when everyone use it. Till then, a gimmick and nothing else.
    It's a great idea, can't deny it but having it on one GPU only is a big fail. It just won't work.
    Direct3D didn't become this popular because only NVIDIA was using it. There should really be DirectPhysics library that would essentially do the same thing as PhysX, just on all cards. Only that way we'll see a drastic evolution of physics in all games on all platforms and all graphic cards.

    Yes. It'd, in concept, bring automated overclocking to the masses.

    That uses pre-programmed fracturing. Real-time fracturing was shown in GDC 2012 about two weeks ago. I posted its video in page one.

    Correct that is what they are looking to provide.

    Interesting that the tag line form the vidio is "the fastest most efficant GPU we've ever built"

    If they have the reference MSRP at $500, while everything AIB sends to market are like $530, Nvidia and the AIB will have a feast day for a while! While TMSC diligently work to increase production there won’t be much of any war, it will be June till there’s inventories to wage any price pressure.

    So here the question... What type of boost software can or will AMD develop, because it makes a ton of sense if you can really have it work seamlessly.

    The Game looks to have changed and Kepler has the ball. They now need to hit hard, it's a start but they need this same stuff to be across the mainstream offering and do it (releases) very quick. Doing it on a $500 enthusist card isn't a boon to a small(er) profit window, they need to open the really Big window so more mainstream folk can throw money through.

    If this turbo thing works well, AMD will have to do something similar with their next series cards.

    Experienced users will probably just disable turbo and go for a max overclock but for the majority of gamers who dont overclock, nvidia cards with turbo will be hard to beat.

    I'm glad to see they get the message about hot/noisy cards too.

    I dont think the 680 will be enough to kill the 7970 but AMD will need to drop the price and start working on new cards.

    I bet they are already working from quite some time. But I think we will not see any changes at the top until the 8000 series will be launched. A dual GK104, rumored to be in the works for May launch, based on what's capable this GPU will probably best the 7990.

    The interesting part is what comes next lower down the Kepler line. GK106 is nowhere to be heard of so I expect NV will give us another 2 GPU's based on GK104, one to target price/perf of the 7950 and one for the 7870.

    i personally am not likeing what that implys, that nvidia throttle when THEY want to get the low tdp and watts use and burst your gfx as fast as THEY want when a bench is running, dont get me wrong im sort of ok with it but not when they want , when I want would be more to my likeing, and though a pain in the ass this feature could be reimagined on any modern card with profileing software

    Maybe only enthusiasts get the DX11.1 feature?

    you know what sod the 680, whens the 660 or 650 going to be released ,as if i get one of these my two are obsolete anyway ,and i only want one for physx so the bottom feeder version will do.

    So that guy is telling us that it is not the gpu itself so powerful, but the technology they built.
    For me its fake

    You obviously didn't even watch the video, you could start by watching the first 30 seconds and count how many times the guy says GPU.
