“With the GeForce GTX 680 in hand, we have to say that NVIDIA not only challenges for top prize but does so with panache. Overall, the GeForce GTX 680 is extraordinary. NVIDIA again takes home the title of world's fastest graphics processor and also with market-leading performance per watt. Hats off to the green team.”

“NVIDIA managed to transform its performance chip to the market's most powerful GPU. The Radeon HD 7970, which is still a very good video card, now gets up beaten on almost all counts.”

“NVIDIA has also transformed the way we think about the core rate of a video card. GTX 680 is an evolution of the Fermi architecture… Now they’re well below arch-rival AMD in terms of power consumption, while they can deliver significantly more performance.”

“NVIDIA’s first 28nm card blows the competition away on performance, efficiency and price, and steals AMD’s high-end crown.”

“The fastest graphics card of this generation. And possibly the smartest too”

“The GTX 680 2GB represents a meaningful jump in performance, features and efficiency that AMD's high-end hasn't matched and the result is a simply outstanding GPU. If you’ve got the money, then this is the card to get.”

“…the outcome is starkly clear; NVIDIA has the best GPU for gamers who crave the utmost performance. The GeForce GTX 680 (Kepler GK104) is the Fermi architecture polished to a mirror finish. It is the best high-end GPU available right now, dethroning the AMD Radeon HD 7970 in the process.”

“The GTX 680 offers significant gaming and power enhancements over the last generation of NVIDIA cards and is priced very competitively against the 7970 which it regularly matches or exceeds in gaming.”
