Video Teaser: Revisiting Our GeForce GTX 680 Coverage

Have you been following availability of Nvidia's GeForce GTX 680? There's a lot we like about the company's flagship graphics card, but it's tough not being able to find one even a month after launch. With Radeon HD 7970s at $479, the pressure is on!

If you haven't yet had the chance to read our coverage of Nvidia's newest flagship graphics card, check out GeForce GTX 680 2 GB Review: Kepler Sends Tahiti On Vacation and GeForce GTX 680, Part 2: SLI, 5760x1080, And Overclocking

In those two stories, we cover the GeForce GTX 680's excellent stock performance, impressive efficiency, improved display connectivity support, and SLI scaling.

When the GeForce GTX 680 launched, its $500 price tag made it a significantly more attractive purchase than a $550 Radeon HD 7970. Recently, however, AMD dropped its flagship to $479 and its Radeon HD 7950 to $400. The result would be a much more competitive landscape.

But the GeForce GTX 680s are still incredibly elusive. Over the past couple of weeks, we've only seen three or four email notifications come in from Newegg letting us know that cards are available. And as of this writing, on 4/20/2012, none are in stock.

According to Nvidia's Facebook page, another card should be arriving soon. Perhaps that one will be more accessible on launch day?

    And i am to believe she knows what she is talking about?... come on! shes using her hair to " cover" her chest but you know she has silicone/saline "upgrades"... TOMSHARDWARE you should not try so "HARD" and pick a model that is believable in the sense that she looks like she is interested to technology....

    i say hire the IFIXIT.com model for these "news broadcasts" ... if they can find someone that is believable that she can fix things, then you should be able too...

    The only problem with these reviews is TOMS is too blatant about the method of hot women doing them. If they were already doing video reviews and the occasional attractive woman gave a review it wouldn't be such an insult to the readers. Do I like it? HELL YES! Am I a little insulted that they have resorted to this level to gain new followers? A little.

    Does anyone else is also feeling that Tom's is pushing too hard to promote NVidia Cards. I mean look at that post about AMD 7000 cards bashing them for a bug even when it was fixed at the time of writing! OK, just imagine this 'low yield' situation happening with AMD....how much bad publicity Tom's would have given them, I can only imagine!
    Tom's I really want you to be an impartial Tech Journalist! Pls stop favoring companies..
