well apparently the 680 was going to match 7970 launch price, so the evga one would be $600ish imo


Wasnt the 7970 launch price around $650 ? Then the EVGA classified would be $700

ASUS Maximus VI Hero | ASUS GTX780 Ti

I blame St. Patty's day for that little argument. :P

Anyway - anyone want to bet on when Nyt will upgrade to 680s?

Here's a SLI run with two 680's OC'd. Nothing really special IMO, I expected more of Kepler and it's def. not the "4 times over Fermi" NV boasted about.

I was almost expecting that. A few news I read didn't sound very reassuring the GTX 680 would be really that great, but it still is soon to take conclusions I think. :P

However, they're still doing benchmarks using it in PCI-E 2.0 X16 too. :P

Kinda fail considering there are tons of PCI-e 3.0 boards out now :lol:

I think you are going tr find that while PCIe 3 looks good on paper in the real world the impact will be minimal.
