A new king is crowned.

Good: Fastest single GPU in the market, considerably cooler than any other high-end GPU, uses only two 6-pin power connectors, fan runs fairly quiet under stress, host of new features
Bad: Overclocking is limited, TXAA and GPU Boost will be considerably beneficial in the future rather than with current games
Price: AED 2,000

The below testbed was used for testing the GTX 680.

For comparisons I have used the ASUS HD 7970 and HD 7950, plus the Nvidia GTX 580. All graphics cards were running at stock speed, and original reference units like the GTX 680.

The benchmarks were all run at the below settings. All tests were done at the resolution of 1920×1200 and 2560×1440.

From auditing to editing, I now test and analyze the latest gadgets and games instead of the latest financial statements. Both jobs are equally intense and rewarding. When I'm not burning up hardware in the name of science, you'll find me nuking in DOTA 2 or engineering in TF2.
