AMD challenged by Nvidia after the release of GTX 680 

By  Ujjwal Chhabra

Its a never ending fight between Nvidia and AMD but currently it can be easily seen Nvidia’s having edge in it. When ATI Radeon HD 7970 was released it was the most powerful Graphics card of the world but soon after some month Nvidia has fought for the title and built Nvidia GTX 680 which is approximately 30% faster than Ati Radeon HD7970.

Nvidia GTX 680 is based on kepler’s architecture powered with 1,006 MHz that comes equipped with DirectX 11 support, adaptive v-sync, and a new GPU boost feature. This boost feature will optimize overall clock speed which will give a real time performance in Computer Games (visible).

Tech specifications:

Stream Processors 1536
Texture Units 128

Pricing: While currently the price is set very high i.e $499 , we can build a mid gaming rig in this price. The price is expected to fall soon in comming months. So watch out for the updated price at regular intervals.

Is it worthy? : When you are paying $499 then this question would definitely appear in your mind as you expect to get best out of the amount spent. So if saying on current day and times IT IS WORTHY. We can’t say on future’s prospective, but currently it is worthy for an Ultimate Gaming experience !
