NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 Releasing February (RUMOR)

That new GTX 680 you’ve been waiting for? You may have it in your hands a month or two sooner than you expected.

According to a Chinese website, NVIDIA is pulling forward the GTX 680′s release from March/April to February. While this hardly sounds like reliable evidence, this information allegedly comes from a source with a reputable track record, claims VR-Zone.

The GTX 680 is said to offer similar performance to AMD’s Radeon HD 7970 — aka the fasted single-GPU videocard on the planet — with a clock speed of 780 MHz and 2GB memory. The battle between AMD and NVIDIA is almost as fierce as that between Sith and Republic — and the fanboys are just as zealous.

Can’t come soon enough. Now how much will two of these cost?

My problem with nvidia is that the cards always perform fast but the image quality is far behind ati(now amd).

For this alone I will stick with ATI. More than anything the “crispness” of textures and quality of anisotropic AA means more to me than a couple of framerates.

I have a sli setup with two 560 ti’s and I’m not impressed at all, To me it seems crossfire is a more worthwhile setup.

In case you are thinking of buying two cards instead of one good one always go with the single good card over a cross or sli setup.

nVIDIA always prefers quality and longevity over performance. Which is why ATI card drivers have so many bugs and a shorter life-span.

Bleh. Fanboys.

I’ve run both SLi and Crossfire setups. Why? Because I’ll go with which ever provides more bang for the buck.

It’s that simple, I have no company loyalty what so ever. Make a card that overclocks nicely, and I’ll buy two providing it’s better than the competitors.

Should also note, I’ve been building PCs for just shy of ten years now. I’ve had cards fail from both Nvidia and ATi. But really? They’re just as good as each other.

People often throw the myth around that Nvidia drivers are better, well actually they are worse. ATi drivers don’t see five to ten percent increases because the cards run as intended all of the time.

That being said, Nvidia drivers are more stable, so they are better on that front. Yet from a technical standpoint, they are actually worse…:P

Nvidia “fanboy” here. However…

The one thing that I do like about AMD being in the market is their focus on Eyefinity and Eyefinity setups. As a surround gamer, going the AMD route can be very inviting, and Nvidia’s Surround does require two video cards whilst AMD only requires one.

That being said, I do enjoy the performance of my 3-Way SLY GTX 480s in Nvidia Surround on 3 26″ monitors at 5760 x 1200 (6030 x 1200 bezel-corrected) and am interested to see the performance of this next generation of Nvidia cards.

Would love to see another 3GB+ card from Nvidia’s high end GPUs as AMD already has that with the 7970.
