Transform your games with reality-redefining gaming power with the PNY 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. 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 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 twice the 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 eggs1yr update

Pros: It works better than some gaming sites rate the GTX680 cards.*

Cons: Can get slightly loud, but then again my machine is kinda quiet.

Other Thoughts: I dont have any "real" specs to give, all I can say is this card out does what its benchmark is suppose to be on BF4 on Ultra-Custom setting. 3 different sites said this card averages 34-40 fps on BF4 with Ultra, my card runs at 60 fps pretty much all the time. Why? I dont know, i dont have the knowledge to tell you why, but it does, so I got more than what I am suppose to out of a card that i dropped into a clearance Dell i5. 5 EGGS!!!

5 out of 5 eggsBeast of a Card

Pros: -Fast: Base clocked in at 1006mhz, boosts to 1059mhz but actual in my system it had some headroom so it went up to 1084mhz.
-Runs modern, fast paced games 60fps average or higher. BF3 ran low 60fps, high 100fps, Ultra preset. (will run others soon)
-Idle temps: 28-32C
-Load temps: 58-64C: fan is quiet at 60-70%
-(Preference) PCB matches my motherboard exactly, which I was surprised (teal or sea blue)
-Sturdy design compared to PNY's GTX 670 which I have in an older rig.

Cons: -Power input is on long side of the card, so if you have a small case and a power supply that has huge heat shrinks on the pci-e 6-pin you may have a hard time closing the case panel.
-Long card, be sure the measurements fall in place with your case's specs.
-Reference cooler pushes the ambient air out the back of the case, but probably half way out the card the air heats up, so the card may get hotter than non-reference designs. Good at expelling air out of the case though. Make sure you're case gets ample cooling.

Other Thoughts: Rig:
Alienware Aurora R3 - Dell motherboard
i7-2600 3.2Ghz
Corsair XMS 16GB RAM 1333Mhz DDR3
800W psu

Always do your research and read user reviews about gpu's before you invest hundreds of dollars on these cards. Forums are great too.

Overall though, I love this card!

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: I got this today (best Christmas present right??) and my... this thing is a BEAST. It performs anything I have thrown at it without an issue. I was even playing Planetside 2 in a HUGE (500+) battle and it didn't eve hiccup. My FPS remained above 70. I highly recommend this card to anyone looking for a top card. Oh, and it's quiet!

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: make sure to install the latest beta drivers on if your game is mentioned in the improvement section (e.g. starcraft 2, battlefield 3).

Cons: the other PNY product (same model non-S, discontinued, also has 18 five stars).

Other Thoughts: I would like to do a favor to PNY for their courteous response to my email. I asked them a month ago if the S edition was the same as the discontinued "normal" series and they replied that they were identical.

As this is the first review, I would like to continue to commend the 5-Star PNY products that they have always had, since perhaps four years ago.

Although PNY does not have market dominance, I would say it is far superior to evga and asus in terms of customer service. Thank you for reading.
