@Somer_Himpson: Ebay? seriously ?
Had to read that one a few times before I figured out how you got past the naughty filter, LOL
At the end of the day, all Nvidia have done is remove the last 0 from their old line of cards. 6800 becomes 680. Inventive.
There are some bargains to be had from decent sellers on occasions!
No, you're right.
@Somer_Himpson: Sure, but the fact that you can have someones used card for cheap doesn't change the retail price of the card. And we are comparing retail prices, right? Right?
Ah poo... What happened to nVidia claiming they were going to wait to release Kepler?
I was expecting a Q3 2012 release.. Oh well looks like I'll wait for 700series release for my upgrade.
All you rich b*stards getting every GTX x80 make me jealous
Damn Student life....
460 SLI is decent setup - but will be a nice jump to the 780....
$$$$ cashingg, guess who is even more filthy rich now -- dala dala billya Good job Nvida! I just hope your drivers better than amd (no offence to amd, but we all know how it is)
Just what I was thinking.
Looks like a few of us are dropping the EVGA 580 love for something a little sweeter... I should all being well be picking up my glorious 680s in the morning
Shame the test didn't include 3gb 580's
I need a sit down
Even if that is true, in todays market this still has decent performance per dollar. Not only that, the real replacement chip will use more power/heat, so in the end for some users an efficient card such as this is still worth it.
"A pair for dual-link DVI ports"
Looks like that top DVI port isn't Dual-Link?
I've had my 580GTX SLi since Launch. That for the record, is November 2010.
I am definitely getting a pair of these
Why isn't it funny?
For that Harry, I salute you.
Thanks for the spot! +rep
I asked you to confirm that on the first page...
Ah well, at least it's clarified now... but it does mean that four monitors off one card becomes difficult if you want higher resolution displays...
Edit: by the way for those running dual setups - GTX680 is not using idle clocks either :
Single display setup (Displayport) :
Dual display setup (Displayport + HDMI) :
It seems like full RAM clock and elevated GPU clock.
