More GTX 680 benchmark graphs surface, card looks great

nVidia GTX680 benchmarked, and it's pretty damn good

By Trace Hagan from Mar 16, 2012 @ 12:36 CDT

As we near the release date of the nVidia GTX 680, more and more charts are surfacing with purported performance, specifications, and the like. Today is no exception. There appears to be 6 new benchmarks run on the card, using an extreme-cooled Intel Core i7-3960X Extreme Edition processor (running at stock frequency), ASUS Rampage IV Extreme motherboard, 8 GB (4x 2 GB) GeIL EVO 2 DDR3-2200 MHz quad-channel memory, Corsair AX1200W PSU, and Windows 7 x64.


Benchmarks included 3DMark 11 (performance preset), Battlefield 3, Batman: Arkham City, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Lost Planet 2, and Unigine Heaven (version not mentioned, could be 1). All tests were run at a constant resolution of 1920x1080, with 8x MSAA on some tests (mentioned in the graphs).

If the following graphs are true, it appears Kepler is a winner. As previously reported, the 640M is pretty awesome, which helps make these graphs a bit more believable. Additionally, these tests were not run by nVidia or a board partner. Instead, they were run by a reviewer from HKEPC. It will be interesting to see the final benchmarks after the NDA is pulled and reviews go live. I'll be watching to see if these are on-point when the actual reviews start rolling out. So without further ado, I present to you the charts:
