Transform your games with reality-redefining gaming power with the GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 680, which delivers a new level of realism and environmental interaction in the hottest HD titles. Powered by the industry-leading 28nm Kepler architecture, the GeForce GTX 680 packs powerful NVIDIA SMX shaders and abundant amounts of memory that deliver a performance punch in the latest 3D games and applications. This card is factory overclocked to 1137MHz for smoother gameplay in the latest DirectX 11 titles. NVIDIA GPU boost technology raises the performance bar by maximizing clock speeds on the fly for maximum graphics power in every gaming scenario. A full array of NVIDIA GTX technology, such as NVIDIA Adaptive Vertical Sync, NVIDIA Surround and TXAA AntiAliasing, revolutionizes your gaming with smooth and true-to-life visuals like you have never experienced before.

  • 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 Imagine the thrill of 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 TXAA AntiAliasing Antialiasing helps to smooth out jagged lines in games. Existing techniques like MSAA are effective at removing jagged lines in still images but struggle with crawling and shimmering artifacts when the player is in motion. TXAA is a new antialiasing mode that combines MSAA, temporal filtering, and post processing for the highest edge quality and minimal shimmering during gameplay.
  • newegg NVIDIA 3D Vision Ready NVIDIA 3D Vision brings a fully immersive, stereoscopic 3D experience to the PC. A combination of high-tech wireless glasses and advanced software, 3D Vision transforms hundreds of PC games into full stereoscopic 3D. Get up to 2x monitor and keyboard brightness with NVIDIA 3D LightBoost technology. In addition, you can enjoy 3D movies and 3D digital photographs in eye popping, crystal-clear quality.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice

Pros: Nice, quiet card

Able to perform at maximum settings in the latest games at 2560x1600 resolution.

Cons: For a few hundred dollars more you can get the top card on the market that will outperform this one by a pretty significant margin.

Other Thoughts: I'm writing this review after this card has become unavailable. Were I to try and decide now, I'd probably wait to save up some extra cash and get a 780 Ti. That said, this card performs very well.

5 out of 5 eggsBest card I've ever owned

Pros: Fast, easy install, good temps

Cons: Price, size

Other Thoughts: If you don't have a large case this card will cause issues with its profile. Also, I'm kicking myself for not having gotten an EVGA 770 for the exact same price.

5 out of 5 eggsThe Card That Cant Get Any BETTER

Pros: Amazing fans and cool, along with a great blue circuit board on top. The card has three fans that don't stop cooling, along with the amazing copper piping that keep the card cool. This is a great card for the price, and I spent $900 on the thing! I got my full moneys worth, and it still runs everything on max with 60 FPS. If you by it please DO NOT FORGET to keep it clean from dust. A few days ago I started smelling something burning and I realized it was my graphics card. Luckily nothing was hurt, because the card is built to last. I give the card a 10/10 because it works great and it never has a problem. Also download Gforce experience from NVIDEA's website, because it give you the latest and greatest drivers for your card. Link: http://www.geforce.com/geforce-experience

Thanks for reading!

Cons: I only have one con. My only cone with the cards it that it is a bit big, so you may need a big case for the card.

Other Thoughts: It is totally worth every penny, and I am glad to help!

1 out of 5 eggsUpdate on GARBAGE QUALITY

Pros: THIS CARD IS JUNK!! After maybe 2 months of occasional use one of my two cards just went DEAD! I mean DEAD. Does not work at all! DO NOT BUY THIS CARD! I read the warnings and didnt listen. Now I have to try and do an RMA. Buy another companys GTX680. EVGA makes probably the best card on the market. I should have bought that one.

1 out of 5 eggsBuy EVGA Instead

Pros: This was my first time buying a Gigabyte product and it will be my last. It works as a GTX 680 should. But this is to be expected of most GTX 680's. What matters is customer service and clarity in policy. BUY EVGA cards as they have great customer service. See cons...

Cons: I was a fool for buying Gigabyte and never will again. BUY EVGA, they care about there customers. Gigabyte customer service is poor to say the least. There rebates take months to process through a 3rd party company and they do not stand behind them. The Rebate Terms at my time of purchase state: 2) Only 1 rebate(s) per qualifying product (Bought 2 qualifying GTX 680's), per household (I am one household) per promotion will be accepted. They are only paying on the one rebate not $20 for both of the video cards ordered. When called on it they told me there was nothing they could do to make me a satisfied customer. DON'T DO BUSINESS WITH A COMPANY THAT DOESN'T CARE ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS! Buy EVGA they have great customer service and in my opinion build a better product.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: Great Card. Handles my 5760x1080 configuration with relative ease. The only game that isn't able to run on max settings is Crysis 3 (45+ fps with a combination of high-ultra settings, though). Can't wait to purchase a second 680!

Cons: It wasn't free. May cause paraphilia.

2 out of 5 eggsIt was great... for awhile

Pros: Works great for the most part. Plays all my games on max settings with ease.

Cons: Like the title of the review says " for awhile", it did run my games absolutely great, but now it does a series of brief freezes while playing any game even ones that aren't very taxing on the gpu. In addition to this I've started to see visual artifacts while playing some games. I've updated the drivers several times hoping to fix the issues because this card is truly awesome when it works properly, but I have yet to have any luck.

Other Thoughts: It seems like I was just unlucky with this card after reading most of the other reviews, but it definitely stinks that my card after such a short time, has started to fail.

2 out of 5 eggsThe fans are garbage

Pros: It's sad because the card itself was great.

Cons: I got the card despite the bad comments on the flimsy cheap windforce fan. I plugged it in all excited to find the last fan (3rd from the front) wouldn't spin. I spent all afternoon trying to get it to spin but it wouldn't. I even tried stress testing it thinking maybe if it got hot enough, the card would detect the heat and kick on the third fan but no luck.

Other Thoughts: Great card, cheap lame windforce fan.

5 out of 5 eggsnice card

Pros: fast, look nice, only 2 slot, not 2.5

Cons: Fan shroud is overly long

Other Thoughts: Cards running in SLI are FAST. I had to dremel off the end of the shroud it fit in my case. Not too much but the "points" on the end of the card had to be cut off flush with the shortest part in the midle of the end of the shroud.
