It seems that Palit will be the first to deliver a GTX 680 with a non-reference cooler. It is nicely overclocked out of the box, yet still runs cooler and quieter than the reference card at stock speeds. The price premium is expected to be only $20 or $30. The only downside is that it effectively takes up three slots if that matters.

630 would be weak. Look for at least a 640, but 660 is where it's at

Anyone tried using the 680 to output 4K video yet?

doubtful considering the monitors aren't available yet. however people are predicting 4k monitors under $500....I don't believe that consider how expensive the 2560 30" res monitors are.

4k monitor sounds great...until you try to read native text one one 3 feet away. at 37" and 1080p text is "just right". at 4k I'd need to strap the monitor to my face :P Each letter would be 1/4 of a mm tall....

I will someday when the price is right, which it wont be until 2015 or 2016 I'd guess....but ultimately we hit the content wall: ......we're already seeing films where 1080p masters from 4k prints look like ass.

The sad truth is that while some masters from vintage films have held up, so many films will be lost to grain that will only become even more pronounced and distracting as the resolution is increased. De=grain the image and you may as well be looking at 1080p, so that is one sad truth about the law of diminishing returns. Its sad really.

Its like Audio...5.1 "WOOOO!". 7.1 "Meeehhh". 14.1+ "................whatever, no thanks".

Then again I'll bet the native shot stuff looks insane

4k as an affordable 1080p current cost is a LONG ways away. At least pc will be first thing to support such a high resolution... even if you have a 4k projector there isn't any native 4k content is there? Other hooking a pc up to 4k projector and starring at windows in 4k.

There is lots of 4K data out there....not necessarily available, but out there.......there are 4K digital cameras and most movies have been mastered for production on Blu Ray at 4k I think.....

We haven't seen anything until 128K resolution becomes available. Anything less is crap on any sized screen.

Blu-rays will be transferred to 4K just like DVD's got the 1080P upgrade to Blu-rays.

I have a Sony 4K projector and would like to see what 4K video looks like. I don't like Radeon cards but the 7970 will work for 4K. I was hoping someone had tried this Nvidia card for 4K. I don't want to buy one until I am sure it will work.

Nvidia's usually stronger on the video front these days with its CUDA cores, at least that is how I read things, but I'm not sure anyone is focusing on that at this point. I'm not really sure if any cpu/gpu combo currently out today has the chops to handle full motion 4k resolution......

it will work. nvidia has come straight out and said yes we support 4k and 680 can do it. Although gaming at 4k, i'm sure sli would be better and 680s with 4gb of ram would be needed to run near 60 or above 60 fps with max graphics. Non-gaming 1 680 would be fine.

I have read that the card is capable or outputting 4k video, but I would prefer to see someone actually test this before I purchase the card. Thanks.

This card just down right sucks for video editing. The 7970 is a much better card for video editing when using Sony Vegas 11.

Before anyone complains. I own both cards. I'm speaking from personal experiences.

Looks exactly the same as the first game.

BFBC2: Wagman

My Second Life character looks and acts exactly like me except he can fly.

Completely intentional, not sure what you were expecting to look different.

I get to play it Friday at PAX East though!

I expected the textures to look the same for the sequel, which is not a bad thing for this particular series.

The GPU-based PhysX features are certainly nothing revolutionary when compared to other games that use them, but it is nice to have the choice for some modern visual extras. Of course, it would be optimal to have consoles powerful enough so these advanced physics features could be integrated from the start and be a more meaningful part of the gameplay.

EDIT: I forgot to add that Borderlands 2 will be one of the first games to have TXAA support. It will be interesting to see if it lives up to the hype of high quality with minimal performance impact.

The first game used PhysX, albeit software based. I'm sure it didn't take much to make some of them GPU based and slap a Nvidia label on it.

Steam: Wag

A lot of games on both the PC and consoles use software PhysX. The distinction is that hardware PhysX brings significant use of cloth/fluid/particle simulation, dynamic fog and smoke, etc.

I can tell you that the original Borderlands did not use the features shown in that video, which are customarily reserved for GPU-based rendering.

Truth.

First borderlands was a joke of a port to pc. They got their asses handed to them from the pc community last time and it's reason why the pc version is getting special treatment. I'm more than happy for nvidia to throw more money at them to get their 680 stamp on it if it means we get proper pc ports.

Yeah seriously? I was about to put one of these in a buddies machine...

On another note...does anyone know of a monitor or tv that supports a true 120hz refresh rate? N8? Anyone?
