NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 DirectX 11 Video Card Review @Hi Tech Legion
     Thu, Mar 22 2012 | 6:20P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The release of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 ushers in a new class of enthusiast GPU. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 GPU is based on the new 28nm Kepler architecture which sports the next generation Streaming Multiprocessor (SMX) containing a massive 1536 CUDA core count. While designed to be powerful, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 is also very efficient, requiring only two additional 6-pin power connectors compared to the previous generation GTX 580 as well as AMD`s latest HD 7970 video card which requires extra 6-pin and an 8-pin PCI-E power connectors./"

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 2GB Graphics Card Review - Kepler in Motion
     Thu, Mar 22 2012 | 5:39P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I think it goes without saying that the new GeForce GTX 680 2GB graphics card from NVIDIA really has impressed me in my short time with it. The performance of the new Kepler GPU is astounding as it was able to best the Radeon HD 7970 in the large majority or our tests and really only lost to it in one ? Metro 2033. While some users might stress over the variability that it introduces, I think the GPU Boost technology is innovative and really helps the GPU stand up above the HD 7970 3GB in overall performance. Added bonuses like Adaptive VSync and Frame Rate Targeting add to the differentiation of the GTX 680 and the long-awaited ability to run NVIDIA Surround gaming configurations on a single GPU really completes the story."

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 (Kepler) Graphics Card Launch Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Thu, Mar 22 2012 | 4:58P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 (Kepler) Graphics Card Launch Review @ HardwareHeaven.com Today we take a detailed look at gaming performance of the GTX 680 in titles such as Mass Effect 3 and Battlefield 3 with single screen and surround gaming as well as Stereoscopic 3D testing. Added to that is GPU computing and media playback performance along with thermal, power, noise and overclocking results. Want to see how the GTX 680 does against the 7970 at its maximum overclock, or the GTX 580 OC 3GB we have that sorted too..."

NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 680 (Kepler) 2GB Reference Video Card Overclocked
     Thu, Mar 22 2012 | 4:17P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier today we bought you a review on the NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 680 2GB, and for all our personal issues with NVIDIA, we made it pretty clear that this is an absolutely awesome video card from the green team that offers some serious power. Since that went live we`ve been hard at work overclocking the new model to see just how much performance we could get out of it. To do that there`s only one program we used, and that`s of course MSI Afterburner which has always served us extremely well when it comes to GPU overclocking."

Nvidia GeForce GTX 680 Video Card Preview
     Thu, Mar 22 2012 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nvidia claims that the GTX 680 is the fastest and most efficient GPU ever built and evidence of this can be seen in almost every aspect of the video card. In terms of efficiency we can contrast the older GTX 580 and can see a 50w drop in TDP giving the GTX 680 a clear advantage in power consumption. Combine that with the performance enhancements of the Kepler core and you have a GPU we can talk about.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 Review: Kepler Debuts
     Thu, Mar 22 2012 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We’ve been hearing about NVIDIA’s Kepler architecture since about September 2010. It was back at that years’ NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference, that company CEO Jen-Hsun Huang first publically disclosed that Kepler would offer massive performance per watt improvements over Fermi and previous-gen architectures and that GPUs based on Kepler would arrive in 2011. Well, the launch date has obviously slipped. How Kepler’s power efficiency looks, we’ll get to a little later. The rumor mill kicked into high gear over the last few months, and has been consistently churning out more and more Kepler scuttlebutt (whether true or false) coincident with Radeon HD 7000 series launches. Today though, we can put the rumors to rest. We’ve had a new Kepler-based GeForce GTX 680 in hand for a couple of weeks now and can finally reveal all of the juicy details...

NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 680 (Kepler) 2GB Reference Card Video Card Review
     Thu, Mar 22 2012 | 3:36P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This industry, like every other industry loves drama. As if we didn`t create enough this week with our slew of Ivy Bridge content that saw us test the Intel Core i5 3570K and Intel Core i7 3770K . If that wasn`t enough we checked out the latest G.Skill RAM and achieved some massive overclocking performance. To finally round it all off we then took the time to overclock both processors to see how that went. Since NVIDIA sent us nothing on the GTX 680 codenamed Kepler - no press deck, no whitepaper, no conference call information, no sample, no NDA date - absolutely nothing - we`re kind of winging it here. Something we don`t really like to do. But when I woke up this morning again with no information from NVIDIA, I was just over it and decided to knock this review over straight away as clearly we weren`t going to hear anything from them. How is that for professionalism? (Ed: Shocking!)"

Intel Publishes More Haswell Graphics Driver Code
     Thu, Mar 22 2012 | 1:34P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While Intel`s Ivy Bridge launch is imminent, and I`m still digging through information concerning today`s Intel Valleyview code drop that brings Ivy Bridge graphics to their next-generation Atom as they do away with PowerVR graphics for their SoCs, more graphics driver code to enable Haswell support has landed this evening.

GeForce GTX 680 review
     Thu, Mar 22 2012 | 12:12P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the GeForce GTX 680 as expected and highly anticipated. Today the GeForce 680 sees the light and has been born, a product that has had many discussions and has seen many rumors. It`s time to put an end to that and replace it with facts. The GeForce GTX 680 2GB is now a fact and selling in the stores as we speak. Today the first in a series of many reviews, meet the GeForce GTX 680 right here"

ASUS GTX 680 2GB Overclocking Review: Win Some Lose Some
     Thu, Mar 22 2012 | 10:51A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After a long and turbulent few months filled with much speculation and deliberate misinformation, we finally have NVIDIA`s belated response to the the 28nm AMD Southern Islands GPUs - the Geforce GTX 680 (current name, among former identities). In the first of many Keplers that we will be evaluating, we take a look at ASUS`s reference offering and see if its indeed a worthy contender (or pretender) to the reigning king of the hill Radeon HD 7970. Overclocked benchmarks also included!"

ASUS GeForce GTX 680 @ ocaholic

Today is the official launch date of NVIDIAs highly anticipated high-end graphics cards.

Today we received a reference design card from ASUS and what has been discussed for a while is true, NVIDIA changed the looks of the card."

PowerColor PCS+ 7870
     Thu, Mar 22 2012 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Pitcairn is the codename for this bourgeois of AMD's graphics card lineup, and it brings the Radeon 7850 and 7870. Today we're interested in the latter, and specifically we're examining the PowerColor PCS+ 7870. It comes with core speeds well over a GHz, and also comes with a customized air cooler to tame the temperatures that often come with higher speeds.”

Sapphire HD 7750 Ultimate 1GB GDDR5 Video Card Review
     Thu, Mar 22 2012 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Sapphire HD 7750 Ultimate uses a dual-slot passive cooling system with zero moving parts. This makes the Sapphire HD 7750 Ultimate completely silent and perfect for a gaming HTPC or in a library/office setting. Underneath the hood of the Sapphire Radeon HD 7750 Ultimate is AMD's 3rd generation DirectX11 28nm GPU based on the Graphics Core Next Architecture, sporting an 800MHz core clock with 1GB of GDDR5 on a 128-bit memory bus. Like all AMD Radeon 7000 series cards, the Sapphire HD 7750 Ultimate comes with AMD HD3D support via HDMI 1.4a as well as AMD Eyefinity and next-generation 4K display support for the ultimate in gaming immersion."

Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3 Review: Keplers First Laptop
     Thu, Mar 22 2012 | 8:07A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Not all the news is bad, however. This ultrabook clearly shows us the direction of future laptops. You shouldn?t be surprised to see the next version of your favorite gaming laptop shave a half-inch or more off its thickness while also improving battery life. The performance will still be less than a desktop, of course, but portability and enjoyable gaming performance will soon cease to be a contradiction."

Sapphire Radeon HD 7750 1GB Ultimate Video Card Review
     Wed, Mar 21 2012 | 5:44P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"After looking at the Radeon HD 7750 from HIS in a standalone review and then looking at reference model paired with it for some HD 7750 CrossFire action, I swore that I wasn't interested in testing another one. Still if someone was ever going to get our attention with a version it was going to be the folks over at Sapphire and that's exactly what they did. Due to the fact that the Sapphire HD 7750 we're looking at today carries with it just the default clock we have opted to move away from our typical full video review and move it over to this format. Instead we'll just concentrate on what makes the card stand out and quickly see how the performance of the passive cooler is."
