i have had the amd 6990 for a little over a year and i get micro stutter no matter what i do...no matter what drivers or caps i use and xfire can not be turned off.
so i recieved the gtx 680 last week and i am now able to play battlefield 3 very smoothly! and no more flickering issue in f1 2012 and i get better results all round.
i have never had a single gpu card before and i will never buy a dual gpu card ever again.
end result is amazing...easy installation and i dont have to configure anything in the control panel to be happy with the performance in any of my games.
I would suggest pairing this with a powerful processor (FX-8350 will do fine for 60hz monitors, but I'd strongly suggest going in the direction if intel i7's for anything above and around 120hz monitor users).
This card is awesome for many reasons:
2. Back-end heat exhaust
3. Very low noise on standard fan curve (anything below 70% fan utilization will be barely heard)
5. A single one of these will do anything you want it to do; get it a twin brother for SLI and it will do anything for at least the next decade.
6. its PCIE 3.0 enabled; so if you have that - you get extra bandwidth (not much use at the moment, but as time goes on, this may become important)
If you have spare budget (rougly £50 more) and plan to SLI in the near future; get the 4GB versions - The reason for this is that in SLI these cards only will have access to 2GB vram (basically; it means that the memory of one card can be used), which can lead to multi-monitor bottlenecks.
WARNING: using 2GB and 4GB variations in SLI (so 680-2GB + 680-4GB) will not work.
Bought this PC version as it is MUCH cheaper than the Mac edition and I'd read that the difference was simply firmware which is upgradable.
Anyway ran for a while out of the box with no firmware changes and it works perfectly well, however there is no video output until OSX loads (gets to login screen), this is OK but if you want to change startup disks, enter firmware passwords during boot etc. by holding down the ALT key you would not be able to see anything.
Also when checking the video card info via the system profiler it reported a PCI error (I'm not sure if this causes any performance issues, there was talk on forums of the PCI speed being slower).
Anyway the way to update firmware is to boot into Windows using BootCamp (I had this already set up), then download a firmware update tool and locate a copy of the Mac Edition firmware (this is all easy to find using Google and 'gtx680mac.rom')
Updated firmware and machine started no problem, boot screen visible and system profiler reports the PCI card perfectly with no errors. 1 month on still running great, 3D plugins in AE/PS all run super fast now.
NOTE: Previous card was a ATI Radeon HD 4870 - the dual power feed cables from this card plugged straight into the new GTX680 card so no need to buy those.
I therefore decided to take the plunge and fork out a fairly hefty sum of money for this card - but I certainly don't regret it. It performs fantastically - every single game to date will run on the maximum settings with anti aliasing enabled, including Crysis 3, Battlefield 3, Witcher 2 etc, all meeting the 60fps mark.
The card requires a minimum 550W PSU, though i found the maximum power draw was only around 180W. The card is also capable of overclocking, and does so pretty well, though the card itself has a 'boost' function build in when applicable.
Overall this is a very good card without spending a totally ridiculous amount of money for the GTX 690 or the Titan. Nvidia are always very good with driver support and you'll know you'll be making a good investment if you buy this card for the next few years.
Hope this helped.
