    All of a sudden, I don't feel bad at all about going 7970M instead...

    Even if the 680M is on par (or slightly more powerful) there's no way I'd pay the premium for it. If it was 30% or more powerful, maybe...but if the benches from nVidia themselves are accurate, looks like that won't be the case.

    Not on the website. Did you call Dell and they told you so? How much is it?

    I don't see the 680M as available on the US configurator.

    It may take a little time for Dell/AW to work through a supply of 675M's and if the announcement was schedualed for yesterday Dell/AW may not have expected other manufacturers/resellers to make the 680M available quite so quickly.

    its coming until the end of the month just like origin the only difference is that origin allows you tu configure with the 680 but arrives till the next month anyway

    Same like last year. 580M came at the end of June/beginning of July and first m18x with those cards started to appear around mid July.

    Let's see how much they ask for 680M. Since the morning I've been thinking about ordering an R2. Hmm...

    Available at the end of the month is not the same as available now ...

    Not to be a jerk, just saying.

    By similar reasoning Haswell is available now ... we just have to wait longer for it to ship.

    Sorry - I really don't mean to be a jerk. I just know that personally I'm refreshing the AW page on an hourly basis to see when that part will drop ...

    Maybe a little of my personally frustration came out. Sorry.
