NVIDIA Next-Gen GPU Now Available

NVIDIA fans rejoice. The well-known graphics card manufacturer has announced that its first GPUs based on the next-generation Kepler graphics architecture, is now available, offering "dramatic gaming performance and exceptional levels of power efficiency."

"The Kepler architecture stands as NVIDIA's greatest technical achievement to date," said Brian Kelleher, senior vice president of GPU engineering at NVIDIA. "It brings enormous performance and exceptional efficiency. Gamers will love the GTX 680's performance, as well as the fact that it doesn't require loud fans or exotic power supplies. Ultrabook users will love the GT 600M family for its performance and power efficiency."

Here's a bit more about the new technology:

  • A new streaming multiprocessor block, known as SMX, that delivers twice the performance per watt of previous-generation products
  • Special board components, including acoustic dampeners, high-efficiency heat pipes and custom fins, that create a quiet gaming experience
  • NVIDIA GPU Boost technology, which dynamically adjusts GPU speeds to maximize gaming performance New FXAA and TXAA antialiasing and Adaptive VSync technologies to enrich visual quality without compromising gaming performance
  • Support for up to four separate displays -- three of them in 3D -- off a single card for a massive 3D gaming experience
  • Manufactured on TSMC's new 28-nm process, with support for PCI-E Gen 3 and DX11.1

Now we need a game that will use this at max potential.

500$ ? They will probably switch it to 500E here, not that anyone will notice *sigh*

Will this give me max res, ultra settings, 60fps on Crysis? If not, fail. Kind of fail that question is even remotely possible of being proven false. Friggin ancient game still crushes cards.

i dare you to try metro 2033 and obtain 60 - 100 fps,is even harder to obtain than crysis
webber Mar 22 2012, 10:55 am EDT
Ah. What is Metro 2033? (assuming a game, but what type of game?)
webber Mar 22 2012, 10:58 am EDT
Never mind. Searched it out.
Ballistica Mar 22 2012, 11:00 am EDT
Totally agree. 2033 is brutal (still working thruogh finishing it!!)

Metro 2033 isnt the best coded game out there but just by turning off physx and DOF you can have near 60 fps on a s sub $200 card. ZBut for the most part the 680 is equal to two 580's performance not bad for a $500 card the GTX 580's should be coming down in price....

Waiting for the 7970 to drop in price once the 680's stock gets up. Price wars are wonderful, such ashame Nvidia was so late to the table.

I'm going to keep my GTX 560 as long as I can. There is no way I can afford a $500 card.
barasawa Mar 22 2012, 04:05 pm EDT
I'd love to have one, but it's not realistic on my budget. Maybe the 500 series will finally drop low enough now that they are no longer the top dog on nvidia's totem pole.

I'm on an old Radeon 4870 - There is nothing I've tried running on my machine that I cannot run on max settings. Why would I want to spend loads of money improving this situation?
