UPDATE - our own TweakTown full review of the NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 680 is online right here.

 

Today has been a busy day regarding the upcoming nVidia GTX 680. A review of the card has been published on Tom's Hardware (since removed), even though the card hasn't even been launched. The card officially launches this Thursday, March 22nd. Take a look at its performance! Generally, it beats out the 7970, and comes close to the dual-chip cards of the previous generation, ie the GTX 590 and the 6990.

Additionally, the card had an overall lower draw the 7970, yet it still managed to beat it. It appears that nVidia has a winner here with Kepler. It even manages to beat the dual-chip cards in a few benchmarks! I can't wait to see the flagship version of Kepler, which has yet to be talked about. I think most gamers should be happy with the 680, however, since it is such a great card. But enough of my blab, I'm sure you would like to see the results!
