The ASUS GeForce GTX 680 graphics card ships with the NVIDIA latest GTX 680 GPU for astounding video performance with superior power efficiency and offers ASUS exclusive GPU Tweak utility for real time card adjustment and monitoring.

Based on the much anticipated new architecture Kepler (the successor to the Fermi architecture), the NVIDIA GTX 680 is not only the world’s fastest GPU but also the most power efficient one. The streaming multiprocessor is redesigned for optimal performance per watt. GPU Boost technology is also employed to dynamically increase clock speed to improve performance within the card's power budget. With the GTX 680, you need just two 6-pin connectors. This is because the GTX 680 draws at most 195 watts of power, compared to 244 watts on the GeForce GTX 580. Play games quieter and cooler.

With GTX 680, gaming is smoother. FXAA and the new TXAA eliminate jaggies. Games get super smooth edges without tanking the performance. Adaptive V-Sync improves upon a feature that many gamers swear by. So you can play with V-sync enabled and not worry about sudden dips in framerate. Finally, a single GPU now powers a full NVIDIA Surround setup plus an accessory display. There is simply no better way to play a racing game or flight simulator. Add in NVIDIA PhysX technology, and the GTX 680 delivers an amazingly rich gaming experience. For upgraded gaming experience, SLI technology lets you link up to three GeForce GTX 680s together.

  • newegg GPU Tweak The exclusive ASUS GPU Tweak offers: automatically checking and updating driver and BIOS versions to keep your graphics card protected; monitoring widget providing detailed multi-parameter information; the most authoritative graphics card information tool GPU-Z allowing you to view accurate card information and status; and 2D/3D switcher can lock the card in 3D for higher benchmark.
  • newegg Kepler GPU Architecture NVIDIA's Kepler GPU architecture has been designed from the ground up not just for maximum performance in the latest DirectX 11 games, but optimal performance per watt. The new SMX streaming multiprocessor is twice as efficient as the prior generation and the new geometry engine draws triangles twice as fast. The result is world class performance and the highest image quality in an elegant and power efficient graphics card.
  • newegg NVIDIA GPU Boost Up until now, GPUs have operated at a fixed clock speed when playing 3D games, even if they have the potential to run faster. GPU Boost intelligently monitors graphics work load and increases the clock speed whenever possible. The result is that the GPU always performs at its peak and you get the highest framerate possible.
  • newegg NVIDIA Adaptive Vertical Sync Nothing is more distracting than framerate stuttering and screen tearing. The first tends to occur when framerates are low, the second when framerates are high. Adaptive V-Sync is a smarter way to render frames. At high framerates, V-sync is enabled to eliminate tearing, at low frame rates, it's disabled to minimize stuttering. It gets rid of distractions so you can get on with gaming.
  • newegg NVIDIA Surround with Up To Four Monitors Nothing is as breathtaking as playing your favorite games across three monitors. At 5760 x 1080, the expanded field of view fully engages human peripheral vision and provides for the most immersive experience in racing and flight simulators. Add in a fourth display to keep tabs on chat, email or web while you are gaming.
  • newegg Two New Anti-aliasing Modes: FXAA and TXAA Anti-aliasing smoothes out jagged edges but can be demanding on framerates. FXAA is a new antialiasing technology that produces beautiful smooth lines with minimal performance impact. And with Kepler based GPUs, you'll be able to enable FXAA in hundreds of game titles through the NVIDIA Control Panel. The second mode, TXAA, is an in-game option that combines MSAA, temporal filtering, and post processing for even higher visual fidelity.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic card, plays everything on max!

Pros: As the title states, this card can play any game on max settings at 1080p. It can also easily do triple monitor gaming.

Runs stable and cool and quiet, and can overclock well.

Cons: Didn't come with any case badges. You'd think for a $500 card they'd include some.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a card purely for gaming, you may want to consider getting the less expensive GTX 670, it has almost the same gaming performance this card at $100 less.

5 out of 5 eggsRock solid performer

Pros: Excellent performance, as expected. I can play all of my games on the highest settings. Not much more to be said. Very few technical issues with older software. The cooler keeps the card at a steady 65-72 C depending on how hard I'm working it.

Cons: Fan's a little loud at times, but then again that's because everything else in my case is quieter and made by Noctua.

3 out of 5 eggsPossibly Poor quality control.

Pros: This card is extremely fast as many people have said. Can handle pretty much any game at 1920x1200 and only a heavily modded Skyrim will max the 2gb of memory at 2560x1440. Love the speed.

Cons: I recieved mine and it would lock-up every time I tried to load a starcraft II game (or almost every time) so I had to RMA it. I LOVE Newegg though with a blazing fast RMA process. Refunded my money within 4 business days of me dropping it off at the UPS store. Newegg time and time again has proven to have amazing customer service. I believe as long as you don't have my issue this is a rock solid card with amazing speed. I'll be getting an EVGA card next though, but I can't give it a 1 egg since I believe my experience to be isolated and many other reviews prove it's quality.

Other Thoughts: A good card for anyone who is looking for the fastest on the market with upgrade-ability (another 680 further down the road)

5 out of 5 eggsOverkill, but futureproof.

Pros: -Ridiculously fast
-Comparatively cool-running compared to the previous chipset
-Not a ridiculous power hog compared to previous gens of high-end cards.

Cons: -Comically big like most high-end cards. Make sure you don't need the PCI-E x1 slot you have directly below whichever slot you install this card in.
-Pricey. I'm the type that only build a new rig every 3-4 years or so, and I go close to bleeding edge so it was worth it to me, but most people will be better served by a 670 or lower.

Other Thoughts: Remember that many games are CPU bottlenecked, not GPU bottlenecked. Remember this when system building.

With an 3770k, 16gb of RAM, and this card I can pull a rock-solid (and I mean rock-solid) 60fps at all times in Skyrim at 1920x1200 with settings turned above the defaults for "ultra". Ditto for BF3.

4 out of 5 eggsno regrets

Pros: I love this card, its quiet as hell compared to my old GTX 285 that sounded like a hair dryer on full blast. this card runs BF3 and Max Payne 3 on max settings no studdering or hiccups whatsoever.

Cons: the GTX 670 has about 95% of the performance of the GTX 680, when I saw the benchmarks I was really disappointed I spent a extra $100 for only about 1-10 fps. if you overclock a GTX 670 it flat out beats a stock GTX 680, that is disturbing.

I bought this card then the GTX 670 came out a week later, I would have purchased the GTX 670 no doubt. so this is why I only gave 4 stars.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Latest and greatest Nvidia card, it does play smooth everything you'll throw at it, and it better for $500. After installing the ASUS OC utility, GPU-Z does recognize the correct bus, PCI express 3, which is not what I've seen in TomH and X-bit reviews, and, that is great news.

Cons: price and availability.

Other Thoughts: Made the mistake of buying 2 day shipping with rush fee. card arrived in 4. Thought Newegg has the greatest shipping and receiving in the world, I guess I was wrong.

Cons: -GTX 670 has almost same performance (sometimes even higher) and is ~$100 less.

Other Thoughts: I got this before the 670 came out, so I spent the extra $100...

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Videocard

Pros: Fast smooth performance at high/ultra settings.

Cons: Availability. Also, it's the latest and greatest so the price is higher as expected. TSMC, NVIDIA's fab partner, and everyone else even Intel to some degree, are having manufacturing delays working out the kinks for 28nm and 22nm parts. Going below 30nm was harder than expected apparently. I only hope the engineers and materials scientists keep silicon going strong until whatever comes next is available!

Other Thoughts: All-in-all a great videocard for the money if you were able to get one when they first launched. If you have been saving for one as I have it is worth the wait. If not wait for the GTX670 and GTX660 variants before buying. And wait for sales later this Fall/Winter.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Amazing card, going from an EVGA GTX 570 classified to this. The difference is astounding, it obliterates every game I throw at it. BF3, GTA4 with ENB graphics mod, Tribes: Ascend, Crysis 1 and Batman: Arkham City with DX11 tessellation enabled.

Cons: A little on the expensive side, but since they are selling like hot cakes... there's no reason for Nvidia to drop prices on the Kepler GPU's.

Other Thoughts: Happy gaming!
