    can you downclock your 670 to 680M clocks and run 3D mark 11 ? that will give us a better idea :)

    720MHZ core 900MHZ memory also downclock your beast CPU a little to match mobile CPU's lol

    Awesome post, mitsuhide. I hope you're right RE: the 680M capabilities! That, I would pay extra for. :)

    The card is probably based on the GTX 670 which means there's about 20-30% downclock. So at best, you are looking at about 6k 3Dmark11.

    1300 cores in a single card?
    I don't think so.
    notebookcheck shows 768 cores in a single 680m.

    Configured one this morning with estimated ship date of 6/18. Classic black chassis, 680m, 3610QM & 8GB 1600MHz RAM were the only changes I made.

    What I want to know is how Origin got the first crack at this card. No disrespect intended; just curious how they have it up and no one else does.

    What Speedy said ...

    Engadget has a note [I wouldn't call it a review] up that details the specs as well and they are as Speedy has listed.

    While the shear number of Cuda cores looks impressive, I'm very curious about the clock speed this card will see. Both Maxpc and Engadget have noted that the 680M supports Nvidia's upclocking tech so it will be interesting to see if the 720mhz number listed is the down-clocked speed or the up-clocked speed.

    I just hope they fix the DPD latency and the throttling for ever.

    Wasn`t you that guy (lol) who prefered Nvidia GPUs after some issues with your AMD GPUs earlier? Why did you rush to buy the 7970M?
