I've just tried it and it seems fine... mostly. There's the odd minor judder when the goal area is packed, which was the same with my GTX 580, but otherwise it runs very smoothly at 60 fps.

I've been working way through my games to see how they feel and so far I'm pleased with the improvements. Alan Wake for example runs smoother and Skyrim benefits from having extra memory for the textures. I haven't done much benchmarking except for Heaven 3.0 where I scored 1,109 (44.0 fps) on maxed out settings at 1920x1200 with 8xAA/16xAF and Extreme Tessellation. My GTX 580 score 703 (27.9 fps) on those same settings.

The GPU boost feature is absolutely awesome though. I've seen my GTX 680 clock itself to 1,137 MHz on the core clock without having to do anything during games. It doesn't seem to overclock the memory though but you can use EVGA Precision X to do that.

GTA IV keeps hanging when I force FXAA (did the same when I tested the v301.10 drivers with my GTX 580 too). I am using a NoDVD crack though to avoid having to use the disc so it might that. I'll have to try it with the disc.

Bloody hell, Aliens vs. Predator uses 2,000 MB at 1920x1200 with DX11 features on (tessellation, shadows and 4xMSAA). No wonder the game stuttered and jerked on those settings on my GTX 580. This is the first time I've been able to play the game on my GTX 680 smoothly without so much as a single judder/stutter even straight after the game has loaded. I thought 2 GB of memory would be plenty and had no idea that an 18 month old game required that much memory to run!!!

@Darren, have you played BF3 multiplayer yet? I'm buying a GTX680 next week (if they are available by then) and I'm mainly going to play BF3 multiplayer at ultra, 4xaa and 1080p.

It was delivered on 1-12-12.....but it's been having issues with F@H and nVidia doesn't appear to be in any hurry to release a stable driver. Might just say screw it and see how an HD7870 does in F@H myself..... I need to get above 100k per week.

This is the best video card ever made.....Let me tell you why, especially when compared to 7970. So i used the 7970 since launch day, got the GTX 680 on Launch day, Drivers are MILES ahead, with 3 monitors, it snaps windows to each screen even when using 5760x1080 resolution, taskbar stays in the middle with no issues, AMD's drivers kept reseting it and it had to be set to the middle again, when playing a game in 1920x1080 using 3 monitors and 5760x1080 desktop resolution, the two side screens go black!! AMD duplicates the image on all 3 screens, annoying maybe there was a way to turn them off, i didnt find it. Games feel smoother with no stuttering, this thing is quiet! even with the fan at 80% it is quiet! Turn it up to 100% it still doesnt sound like a leaf blower like the 7970 did, its cheaper than the 7970, the 7970 had driver issues, driver stopped responding and recovered while i was browsing the web out of nowhere, several times a day. Honestly having used both, there is no competition, the 680 destroys the 7970 in all areas, the only way to consider the 7970 over the gtx 680 is for AMD to price it at $350 or maybe $400. Overall i couldnt be happier, nVidia finally came out with a 8800GTX kind of gpu again. Well done nVidia.

if you look at the 7870/50 review it is a little slower than a 580. not worth the price imo for a 7870. not worth the $349.99-$369.99 pricetag
