GTX 680 reviews are up!

fresh from the press.

EDIT: and this is why i like techreport so much. instead of just focusing on FPS, they've actually found a way to objectively measure game fluidity of motion. judging by their results, the GTX 680 can achieve higher FPS than the HD 7970, but produce just as a fluid experience. the review appears to be incomplete, since the new features page is largely blank, and there's no overclocking results, so we'll have to wait for those as well.

EDIT2: it's interesting to see how different testing methodologies result in such different... results. the BF3 benchmarks are really telling. TR's test says that the two cards are near identical, while anandtech's suggest that the GTX 680 is dramatically faster. a closer examination reveals that TR only tested on one resolution and settings, while anandtech tested a whole bunch. TR's review of that one setting is a lot more detailed however.

Intel i7 2600K @ 4.5Ghz
16GB G.Skill Ripjaws Z 1600Mhz
Asrock P67 Fatal1ty Professional
MSI HD 7970 Lightning @ 1125/1600 MHz
Crucial M4 256GB SSD
3x Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200.12 HDDs (RAID0)
Seagate Barracuda Green 2TB HDD
