    Just sold my XPS L702X and am looking to buy a new laptop with a 680m.

    Any new reviews and analysis would be much appreciated.

    You may have better luck in the "What notebook should I buy" section.

    Sorry, should have clarified.

    I'm sure on the laptop I want, I would just like to read some further analysis on the 680m.

    best advice, ALOT of it comes down to what you will be using your system other for than gaming. give WNSIB a go

    great gaming card, fairly cool running from what I hear, as well as expensive. Slower in many CUDA Apps than the 580m/675m and even slower yet in OpenCL.

    Gaming = good
    Pro Apps = BAD!!

    as far as benches go, the 680m will get you the highest possible numbers. There is about a 300-400 3dmark11 point difference between the typical higher overclock in the 680m vs the card we can't mention in this thread lol....so 6800 vs 7150...the highest I've seen the 7970m get on 3dmark11 is over 7200 (edit: 7200 with tesselation on, i've seen almost 7800 without tess)...while the highest I've seen the 680m get is 7600

    As far as fps in games go, it really depends on the game...some games favor amd, some nvidia, so it is best to buy for the game that you are interested in. You should ask which card is better in a certain game and either look it up in reviews or someone here will point you in the right direction

    edit: just messing with you guys

    both cards are +/- 5% so it sorta depends on your budget and what you're comfortable with buying

    EDIT...hahaha, i know you were joking, but i had to answer it anyways lol

    Alienware Canada would not be shipping any of their laptops with a 680M untill the 19th of July, ..and just a few days ago I was getting impatient. I might just buy / customize an M17X with a 7970M. The $300 dollar cheaper price seem not bad.

    I have no problem OC'ing with either card really...

    But really getting impatient with the long wait for the 680M.

    Understood. Thanks so much for your input, I really appreciate it.

    I feel the same having waited this long for the 680m in the Clevo, now I just need to pull the trigger and buy the thing.
