thats pretty cool actually.
Nah, you asking about benchmarking 680 and 7970 at same mhz core and memory, and you called 1006mhz 680 is overclocked. According to previews news, 1006mhz is the GTX 680 base clock, and turbo clock is 1058mhz. So, if you still asking about benchmark with same core clock & memory, It's like comparing 880mhz HD6970 with 880mhz GTX 570, is that fair enough for you?
So more demand means less base clock.
And I read no where that it uses less power than the 7970.
the TDP is less then the HD7970. 195w TDP vs 210w TDP. Im pretty sure you can assume it'll use a bit less power then the 7970
smaller die size too
supposively same performance if not better too
Perhaps this might help..
More pics.. not of NV's slides but GK104/GTX680
Chip(GK104), Measure1, Measure2, Heatsink1, Heatsink2, Hynix-RAM?, Blower fan, on-board chip?, stacked power conn
Nice info. Hey, looks like both Nvidia and AMD moving away from Samsung to Hynix
yes, seems that way..7970 uses hynix too..
apparently they moved way back in 2008 with their 40nm performance cards..
nvidia also have 1 year long collaboration with hynix in co-developing car infotainment systems.
We can only hope those graphs are good, and are not going to cause issues with microstutter.
depending on the drivers of course
Why was extreme cooling necessary when its on stock speed?
i am not going to comment on this.. :shadedshu
I think maybe what was meant was that since the x80 is for the high end and x70 is performance, the gk104 wouldve been named 670. But since there is no high end the 670(performance) is upgraded in the name to 680(high end).
It's pre-order or something? If it's true, damn, that price tag is higher than 7970
yep.. pre-order(2-5 weeks time for delivery)
I dont think this card is as impressive as some people think. AMD left heaps of overclocking headroom, Nvidia have clocked their card higher and have turbo overclocking built in so how much overclocking is left on the card?
An overclocked 7970 can do 11,000 3D mark 11, can the nvidia card do that? Or has the card already been milked? And what happened to 40% better BF3 performance?
Anyway, for me, I can only hope the 680 is faster so I can buy a 7970 for cheaper.
Lol the GTX 580 has 0.4gb more memory bandwidge....derp ^_^
Kinda tired of people saying how this is nVidia's mid-range card when...it's not. If it was, they would have named it as such. Hell, they could have still named it a GTX 660 with that price and do even more damage to AMD in terms of halting sales since it would give enthusiast gamers the illusion that a "high end" GK100/110/whatever is on the way...
If this card is indeed the GTX 680, we should just accept it and look towards better driver support and features that actually improve the gaming experience (i.e. TXAA).
That, or wait for their next generation of chips...
Seems fine to me, the 7970 ranges from 440 to 510 € here in Europe and if it performs better than the 7970 then we could see a drop in price from AMD/ATi
I agree ,At least they are neck and neck,But when a benchmark with cuda favor it pulls ahead.Lets wait and see if AMD comes out with an update in the q2.
well it would have been called the 660 with the logic that the gk104 is suppose to replace the 560ti(gf114)
I think some people are forgetting this is meant to be a mid range card.
I think some people are forgetting that it turned out not to be seeing as it's being released as the GTX 680. If GK100 were out there we'd probably be seeing that instead. I wouldn't think Nvidia would hold back it's strongest cards just to make AMD not look as bad. They would have taken it as a chance to pull ahead this year, having GK 104 as their mid-range.
But GK104 is the top end for this generation, unless they release a 685 or 680ti or whatnot. Which means either Nvidia figured they would make more profits this way (which doesn't make sense as they'd be able to get larger shipments running this card lower and owning the market for performance/ price, meaning anyone but the damnest AMD fanboys would buy their cards. = larger profit and more marketshare.) or B. there was an issue with getting GK100 out, whatever it may be.
In any case, I'll wait to see some more official benchmarks before reaching a conclusion on this one.
