ASUS GTX 680 Graphics Card Powers Smoother and More Detailed Gaming.

The first 28nm design from NVIDIA comes in a complete package by way of the ASUS GTX 680 graphics card, featuring true next generation power and all-new NVIDIA GPU Boost frequency modulation. ASUS GPU Tweak helps gamers and overclockers make the most of this powerhouse card through a flexible and intuitive interface, while NVIDIA Adaptive Vertical Sync promotes smoother games with all details set to maximum. NVIDIA 3D Vision also returns, improved by 28nm efficiency and power.

  • newegg DirectCU II ASUS utilizes copper heatpipes in direct contact with the GPU surface heat is transported and dissipated efficiently. DirectCU II is 20% cooler and 14dB quieter than reference – making it a low-noise high-performance graphics card.
  • newegg VGA hotwire Exclusive VGA hotwire allows you to plug and solder wires on the card's voltage regulators and accurately read and control Vcore, Vmem, and PLL voltages from ASS ROG MBs on a hardware level.
  • newegg DIGI+ VRM with 10-phase Super Alloy Power Acclaimed DIGI+ VRM has been applied via a massive 10-phase power design that uses digital voltage regulators to minimize power noise and enhance power efficiency, widen the voltage modulation range, and improve overall stability and longevity by 2.5 times longer than reference.
  • newegg GPU Tweak Overclocking is made real-time and intuitive with ASUS GPU Tweak utility. It not only allows you to optimize clock speeds, voltage and fan speeds on up to four graphics cards independently or simultaneously, you can also select between GPU Tweak’s Standard or Advanced modes depending on your level of experience. On top of these exciting tools, ASUS gives you more: Sync GPU clocks and voltages for easier overclocking, automatically check and update driver and BIOS versions, get detailed specs and actual card status with GPU-Z, 2D/3D switcher can lock the card in 3D for higher benchmarks and monitoring widget provides detailed multi-parameter info.
  • 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.

5 out of 5 eggsToo close

Pros: Easy install, Nvidia's drivers are always trouble free. Now running all games on ultra settings.

Cons: I knew going in that these cards took up 3 pci spots and running them in SLI, it would be close. How close your ask? Maybe there a 1/4 inch apart. Top GPU runs 10 degrees celsius higher.

Other Thoughts: i7 3960X CPU, 16 gig G.skill ripjawsZ ram, Asus sabertooth X79 mb, Western digital 600 gig velociraptor & 300 gig raptor. 128 gig Crucial SSD for ssd caching. CPU is liquid cooled. 2 Asus GTX680 in SLI

5 out of 5 eggsGTX 680 MONSTER EDITION

Pros: - Insanely fast: Planetside 2, Battlefield 3, Crysis 3 everything maxed out very smooth. At 1400 x 900, this card is complete overkill, but I'm getting a 1920 x 1200 monitor soon, so I can actually test this thing.

- Very quiet considering its size and horsepower. The card has a low hum, but it's easy to drown out, and the card doesn't really get too loud until the fans get around 60%

- Card runs cool despite being a high end card with lots of processing power. During gaming and benchmarking with Unigine, the card never gets about 57. Stress testing with EVGA OC Scanner X brings the card all the way up to 76, but that's the only time it ever gets near that temperature. Room temp is 22.

- Easy overclock with noticable gains. I was able to add 150 MHz to the core clock to bring it to 1384 MHz, and I was able to add 430 MHz to the memory to bring it to 3434 MHz. Result was a gain of 8 fps in Unigine Heaven benchmark.

Cons: - Size: This card huge! I knew it was a 3 slot card, but I was still shocked when I got it! Make sure you have a good 10.5 - 11 inches of room in your case. I was able to fit it easily in my Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 once I took the top HDD cage off, but reinserting it only left me with about a 1/2 inch of room.

Other Thoughts: - I actually got this card used from a friend for $350, so I can't make a good judgement on its value, but I'd say the GTX 770 is a better value now, since it's cheaper and a little faster.

- As I said before, this card is HUGE, so make sure you've got room for it, a good power supply (550W high efficiency or better), and a 6 pin and 6 + 2 pin PCI-E power cable.

Overall this card is amazing, I expect to get my full money's worth out of it for at least two years, so it's definitely a worthy buy, but as I said, the GTX 770 is probably a better value now.

5 out of 5 eggsBest of all GTX 680

Pros: This card is all you need. I used amd for years but finally got fed up with the heat and fan noise and stutters. No noise,no heat and every game on Ultra with this card. Outstanding!!!

Cons: None.Well the price is hard to swallow but it's worth it.

Other Thoughts: This card is huge make sure you have a big enough case and a 550W or greater quality power supply.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very quiet under load, and runs cool considering it is the fastest 680 you can buy out the box. The quality of the card is top notch from ASUS compared to the reference design. Big fan of the dynamic vsync with a 120Hz monitor. Lower power draw then reference even OC.

Cons: My 7970 GE beats this pretty easily in 3DMark, even OC to max. But you can't play 3dMark, and Nvidia drivers are generally a better experience.

Not even close to AMD game bundles, but w/e.

Other Thoughts: Not a con, but the card is huge. You won't be SLI these unless you have a big board and case. I would guess the price of this will drop with the GTX 780/770 about to launch. Not a fan of Nvidia reference design cooling besides Titan so you may want to consider this card if it drops to GTX 770 price levels and don't want to wait for non reference 770's.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic card

Pros: Powerful
Runs cool
Easy to overclock

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I truly love this card. This, paired with an i5 and 16 gigs of ram, takes on just about anything you throw at it. Can easily Ultra Witcher 2, locked at sixty. Hell, outside of cut-scenes, this still manages thirty to forty frames with uber sampling. Not that I suggest playing with that. Anyway, Witcher 2, Warfighter, BF3, Planetside 2 - all of today's most demanding games - this thing will run them at sixty frames or higher. The only game that I can't keep a smooth sixty with is Metro 2033, but that one is notorious for its poor performance. Long story short, I couldn't be happier with this card. Just remember, it is a three slot, so don't buy this with thoughts of running SLI. It's not going to happen. Also make sure you have the space, because its length could be an issue with many cases as well.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Card

Pros: Fast,Looks Amazing, Performs Amazing, Great Card For The Money, Plays all Modern Games on Ultra. This is just one of the best cards for the money. It is super quit and packs a punch. I would totally recommend it.

Cons: Takes three Slots. This isn't a performance thing but if you want to sli you will need a case like the 900d,800d, or cosmos 2

1 out of 5 eggsBad Experience

Pros: promises to be an elite gaming card

Cons: sporadic performance, random graphical artifacts, horrific customer service

Other Thoughts: My experience with ASUS in the past had been pleasant enough. However I purchased the last flagship model of the NVidia card (GTX 580) and it has been nothing but trouble. It took me quite a while to track the problem to the video card. Random lockups and reboots. I am not on my 3rd replacement card and each one they send me is faulty. I have replaced the card with a different card and have no issues. I have tried the GTX 580 in other machine, all of which have had the problem. So I am without a doubt 100% sure it's the card. ASUS keeps charging me to ship it back and they keep sending me faulty cards. I think they are just randomly sending out other cards that have been sent in as replacements without any repair or testing at all. Customer service takes days to weeks to respond to emails. This process has been going on for over a year and I still have no functional card. So you take the chance if you like but if you are sitting where I am next year remember that you were warned!

Manufacturer Response:

Dear MFS,

I am sorry to hear about your experience with ASUS Support. If you are still having problems please contact me at cl-jeremy@asus.com so that I can see what I can do to help. I can personally test a replacement for you so that we can get you the working card that you deserve. If there is anything that I can help you with, please don't hesitate to email.

Regards,
Jeremy
