    What would be the point ?

    You either review them at stock or both of them at max air overclock with similar temp, power and noise.

    Kapu clock vs clock makes no sence look for exsample ad intel clock speed vs amd same speed results is a world of difrence.look so ad max oc of both card than we 'll see who is the best "need voltage tweaking first and more mature drivers".

    THIS is exactly what I thought apart from the fact I actually like shooters and I need to get upto 120fps on my 120hz monitor. Don't think this card is as good as I thought it would be. Will wait another 6 months or so I guess!

    What defines mid range to me is the price, not the perf.

    500$ is not mid range. I don't care if nVidia could do better but don't want to. It's 500$ then it's not mid range.

    Amd could do better too and sells it at 800$. Everyone can do better and increase the price.

    At this power, temp, noise and margin of benefit this is the best nVidia could do. Saying otherwise is being delusional.

    It's a good high end product. Better than 7970. It's just not mid range and it's not unbeatable.

    Now don't get me wrong. Both Amd and nVidia will release better card by the end of the year or beginning of next year. This price of this card will then be reduced and it will effectively becomes mid range. It's just not now.

    Is it me, or the caption of the review's title is showing "GeForce GTX 680 SLI review", instead of just "GeForce GTX 680 review" at the homepage.

    Anyways, as awesome as always Hilbert! :)

    nice review.

    one suggestion thou: get a 16:9 monitor, 16:10 panels are not even going to be produced any longer, at least not for wide consumer market. The number of people using 1920x1080 vs 1920x1200 is not even fair to compare and HD resolution is our "new" "standard" resolution for gaming is it not?

    I am not a fanboi but, no, AMD couldn't. They would if they could. They had the market for themselves and wasting the opportunity to make 800$ on a single GPU card would be just insane. NVidia will now wait for AMD's next move and then release GT110, maybe even a better one than they (could) have atm.

    Great card, but I'm not buying a $500 card with a 256 bit memory interface and 2GB RAM. Waiting on NVIDIA's actual high end card.

    So Amd can't do better but nVidia can but don't want to. Hum ... right.

    For both Amd and nVidia. At this power, temp, noise and margin of benefit it's the best they can do right now.

    Umm, I compared the 7970 OC'd reviews and its better than the 680 OC'd, I might be wrong tho, Hilbert you should do a 680/7970 OC review :D

    It's hard to say it's better or worse with only 2-3 games. The oced to oced reviews posted here don't test enough games imo. And they test the oced 680 with a stock cooler.

    Even the HH review is not really good imo. I mean WoW in a 680 review ? No Metro or Anno ? Bioware games (crap engine) ?

    I think it's clear the 680 is better anyway. And it was expected. Drivers will improve and aftermarket coolers will be released. You simply can't compare the oc ability of a card with a stock cooler and a card with a customized cooler.

    But it's not day and night like people expected it to be. The 7970 does manage to beat the 680 in some games. And at very high 3 monitors resolution the difference is marginal at best (usually under 5 fps). Ati needs to reduce the price though cause right now no reason to buy a 7970 even if you are an Amd fan. For me i'm gonna wait next year for the 7950 or upcoming 670 to be down at around 300$ CAD. I'm not spending 450-500$ on a card ;)
