Benchmarks Real world tests of GeForce GTX 770 vs 680

Passmark Industry standard benchmark for overall graphics card performance

Further, 3DMark11 does not seem a good choice either, as it let me run much higher clocks than were stable in other tests.

3DMark Vantage (Texture Fill) Industry standard benchmark that tests DirectX performance

3DMark 11 Graphics Industry standard benchmark that tests DirectX 11 GPU performance

Crysis: Warhead (2013) 1920x1080 - Enthusiast Quality + 4xAA

Our Crysis 2 installation uses the high-res texture pack and DX11 upgrade, which helps explain this reading.

Far Cry 3 1920 x 1080 - Ultra Quality + 4x MSAA + Enh. AtoC

GeForce GTX 770
50.4 fps
GeForce GTX 680
44.7 fps
The game is a typical linear first-person shooter, but offers a talent tree, fast paced action and one-on-one duels with special game mechanics.

The GTX 770 WindForce OC is no different, but the improvement over the reference design cooler is, nevertheless, not that big because NVIDIA's cooler is already quite good.

Did you update your drivers?
GTX680 Top Edition smashes on gtx 770 .... intill you OC the 770 :/
maybe your power supply doesn't meet the requirement, so your GPU uses less watts and has less performance.
No. You clearly know nothing about bottlenecking. Please watch this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DAgpvWc4VBM
Its probably because your CPU is bottlenecking. You should get one of the newer i5's. Same thing is happening to me, I am going to upgrade to the i5 4670k soon.
The GTX 680 has better turbo.boost.
a friend of mine has a gtx 680 and runs bf4 on ultra with 150% texture resolution with 70-110 fps. where as my gigabyte gtx 770 4gb OC runs at 30 fps if i have the same settings. wtf... im so confused! someone please shed light on this.
got my inno3d with 1254mhz and this is stronger... but if you got a gtx 670 or 680 you can wait for 800series
Hi, nice review here. How does the standard 770 compares with the 680 TOP Edition (1201Mhz)? Thanks
Yes, both 680 and 770 are GK104.. But.. Like they say.. 770 is 680 on steroids.. :D It's just better.. Plus GPU 2.0.. Of course.. Not reference 770.. Just custom.. Yes... It's badass looking.. But.. 80 C° ?? On full load.. NO.
On techtomorrow the GTX 770 had 7 more avg fps then the gtx 680 on 1080p. On the other games the GTX 770 also lead. The f is with this comparrison if not the drivers are the reason?
Keep in mind the maturity of the drivers.
In 770vs670 comparasion we can see that in warhead 770 provides 48fps, and 670 36,4. In this one we can see 36,4 next to 770 what gives 50% advantage to 680 what is enermoud value. If there was 48 fps next to 770 it would give 11% advantage to 680 what is allright. Could you repair that?
I just ordered a second GTX 680 for $420.00. This makes me feel pretty good about it...
yes its gtx 680 with gk104-400 i guess
I think the GTX770 will have GK104 - same as GTX 680 - according to other websites
