True, but the nature of the GPU business is that todays 'high-end' performance is usually available within 12 months at $300. If cards were released every 3 years, I would have no probs dropping $600 on a card today.

Bad time of the month though, will see how much there is at the beginning of March.

I was impressed with the memory increases and the power consumption but I just paid off my Credit card from my 570 purchase... no way could I make this jump as the price range is around $500 and that is not even Super Clocked like my 570 was...nope.

As Darren mentioned somewhere those in the UK looking to buy should take a look at Dabs and use promo code spring25, should come to about £415 + p&p

Aria has one for £399.99 as well.

Stock gone on Newegg already, where else in the US do people buy hardware?

Is it? Release both within a close time of eachother, attract AMD's midrange customers with a card that performs better than their high end card, and then the enthusiasts buy the high end even more powerful line up?

Personally i think that makes more sense than releasing a mid range as high end. At least then your catering for both brackets with competitive products simultaneously

Well heh. Let's say cash in more money. The design is 100% same as the Xtreme Plus and Plus 2.

Probably the mounting holes of the 680 are different from 580, so can't mount the Plus and Plus 2 unless you got the mounting plate which isn't sold sepereratly for the 680.

Currently the Xtreme III does NOT fit on the 680 unless a Non-Stacked PCI-E Connector comes out. Which is my guess, seeing the picture Arctic provided aswell as saying it DOES support the 680.

Matter of time.

£399 from Aria, not too bad tbh, infact quite good based on 7970 prices.

I am a bit gutted that I spent £381 on a 7970 (pixmania) less than a month ago.

But the fact its not looking likely that an Accelero Xtreme will fit a reference 680 does give me some solice. (Have to have these coolers i love em) Oh that and the fact ive just played Metro 2033 right through for the first time this week and it was a stunning experience to play it maxed DX11 (except SMAA instead of MSAA) smooth as you like at 1260/6200.

But now its back to BF3 MP for me, and yes im a little Green with envy.... Excuse the pun.

Or release all the best GK104 chips at a high end price as the GTX680, the ones that donít do as well as GTX670, and when youíve sold lots of those two at a tidy profit, as well as having tweaked GK110 to perfection, release that as the new high end chip.

There will most likely come a 680 without a Stacked PCI-E Connector according to Arctic Cooling. Since they claim the Accelero Xtreme III is compatible with a 680 WITHOUT a stacked connector.

Why is one of the DVI ports DVI-I while the other is only DVI-D? That seems like a strange decision to me.

Otherwise, it's a kick-ass card. And if I had the money I'd rush out and buy two right now.

This is their flagship GPU, period. It is designed to be their best GPU performer for the price/performance. If it was midrange they would simply call it 670.

The GK110 is a different GPU, and while it maybe faster, it is supposedly designed for compute, which causes it to be a lot larger, more power hungry, and being expensive. It will be marginally faster, but not likely for the cost. Probably will make good money as a GPGPU though.

At least from everything I've seen that look's like Nvidia's gameplan.

Why would they release one without a stack pci-e connector ?

If anyone does it will be a non ref custom PCB version... Which the Accelero probably wouldnt fit anyway.

Best bet is hope Arctic just release one for the reference 680, it cant be that hard for them..... Just cut out a section of the fins for the power connectors. Job done.
