Won't really matter, even BF3 at 5760x1200 and all settings maxed out is only using 1.8gb...

anyone have any idea how an overclocked 2gb 680 would perform against an oc'd 7970 on a resoultion of 5760 x 1080???

Don't think anyone has done this test yet.

7970 is faster, actually. The 680 barely overclocks.

Check out these benchmarks in eyefinity with 7970, 7970 Lightning Max OC, and a 680:
http://www.hardwareheaven.com/reviews/1452/pg6/nvidia-g...

Note that this is only at eyefinity res, at lower res the 680 is generally still faster. Also they OCed the 680 and went from X3170 to X3650 in 3DMark11, while the 7970 goes from X2739 to X3282. Not that synthetics are all that great but just saying.

I think I'd hold off on either until we see custom 680s because I'm betting MSI, Asus, XFX, etc, will all come out with custom cards that probably OC better.

I'm guessing it would depend on what you are getting for overclock settings. If you are able to overclock the 7970 higher than the 680 then you would get higher fps , but if the clocks are the same then the results would be the same as the benchmarks that are out there now. So with overclocking it's going to be a case of which card can go higher and be stable.
I do think that because AMD came out so early with thier cards that Nvidia chose not to release thier top chip model and they are going to continue refining it and then drop it on us towards the end of the year. All the reviews I have read are saying that the GK104 chip is not a top flagship type chip and there is going to be another top model released.

Are you blind? Did the 680 say "680 OC" or "680"....It wasn't overclocked. That was a factory oc vs stock 680, and it barely wins..Get your facts straight or keep your fingers from typing idiotic ramblings.

Check out guru3d Nvidia actually oc's decently well w/o pushing up the voltage. Everyone is still speculating and its driving me insane. everyone has been saying "with the gpu boost it won't overclock well" but thats not the case, and we will know more once more oc benches are released.

AMD's 3D mark Score = 543 difference

Nvidia's = 480

Not much of a difference if you ask me. To bad they didn't test after the clocks

Are you blind? I didn't say the 680 was OCed for those results, and I posted the results they had where it was OCed vs an OCed 7970.

Plus there's just not a lot of info about 680 OC vs 7970 OC at high res.

For example here's one http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/2012/03/22/nvidia-gefo...

Where an OCed 680 and an OCed 7970 perform identically at 2560x1600 4xMSAA max settings in BF3.

Oh and here's one with OC vs OC in many games http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/gpu_displays/nvidia_...

They perform almost the same when both are at max clocks, with the normal deviation in some games that favor one vendor over another.

well then im gonna wait for the evga classified. its supposed 2 have 8+8+6 pin connectors so you can get more power for higher OC's, and its also supposed to be HIGHLY OC'd right out of the box.

if you go to evga.com and then click the gtx 680 advertisment and then scroll down and click on "classified" and the near the top right corner click "gtx 680 classified" then you can see the specifications, but the core clock, ect, is not listed.

yeah but i dont really care about water cooling (no disrespect intended) since ive got an nzxt switch 810 case fully loaded with 9 bgears 140mm fans, and each fan has almost 100 cfm, even though they have like 36 dba (i dont really care much noise either because i have logitech g930's, which are great for noise dampening)

Well on release that card is cheaper than the 7970 atm. Oh and I see the mid tier 7xxx series beginning to get rebate offers and promo codes on newegg.
