Summary: I recently built a new super-computer for gaming and I chose the Zotac GTX-680 for my new build. Overall I am extremely satisfied with it's performance. It has handled every game that I've thrown at it including Battlefield 3 all at absolute Max Settings. The only game that I could not play on Ultra is Crysis 3.
Summary: Pros: - Absolutely top end performance. One card beats my old 560ti's. - Overclocks nicely and doesn't get much hotter. - Blower style coolers are my favourite. All heat is exhausted outside of the case. Great for mini builds. - Pulls much less power than a 580. - Doesn't require 8 pin power. 2x6 pins. - Not as long as it looks. There is clearance inside the shroud if you have to put it in a tight space. - Perfect variation of outputs.
Summary: I noticed this card has not been selling, but it's got 4 gigs of ram and goes for $469 after $30 rebate (Not here, at a website which is Directly related to a Tiger, hint hint). My old Radeon HD 5770 was the only bottleneck on my rig (See full specs below) So I convinced myself to replace it. I won't bore you with technical details or exact benchmarks; you can find those elsewhere if you want. I'm a hardcore gamer, and I only play at maximum detail settings.
Summary: Not too much techno BS just the facts. This card runs any and all games on ultra high settings, maxed out and not a single stutter , never drops framerates in any game under any circumstances, this card eats every game for lunch and asks for more. I came from dual GTX 460's in SLI to this card and it is night and day. I was apprehensive when trying ZOTAC, I have never used their products before but, that has all changed. I am now a ZOTAC fan for life.
Summary: Great card, plays all the new games with ease. Graphics are amazing with this card. From my testing, it doesn't run hot. On an i5 3570K, this card outperforms the cpu in benchmarking and performance tests. If I had known that, might have got the i7!
Pros: Warranty, cooling system, overclock out of the box
Cons: Software on disk that is actually something you have to purchase.
Summary: Great card. Has no problems playing any game. The cooler works well, wont go above 80%, even when manually set. The cooler is a little loud, but much quieter than my old 6970 reference card. The boost clock is supposed to be 1176mhz, but I see 1216 mhz in game. I can only get to 1225 before i run into trouble. Overall, a great product. Three free Assassin's Creed games was a good bonus!
Pros: Cooler works well, Factory boost clock is 1216 mhz
Most powerful single gpu consumer graphics card currently!

Summary: I am running Battlefield 3 and Skyrim at 2560x1600 resolution smooth as silk. If your monitor resolution is 1920x1200 or below, the standard 2GB version is sufficient. If you use nVidia Surround or ultra high resolution, then this 4GB version will allow you to use higher quality textures and filters.
Summary: I bought this card so I could max out Battlefield 3. Pretty absurd to spend $600 on pretty much one video game, but I'm hoping this will give me at least a little future proofing. I can run BF3 at Ultra, and it'll never drop below 55FPS. That would be with heavy smoke. Normally it runs above 70. The card stays quiet, doesn't have any of the problems fermi had with being loud and hot.
Pros: Fastest card avaliable, Doesn't break the bank entirely, Doesn't catch on fire., Free games.
Cons: Slower rendering than a 580, Black and orange colour scheme.
Excerpt: Про дизайном я конечно зря так, но с первого взгляда мне показался он неплохим, хоть и каким-то корявым. Очень огорчают тепловые трубки, слишком они торчат, в более мелкий корпус (меньше Z9+) может не уместиться вместе с вентилятором на боковой крышке. Второй вентилятор (что охлаждает часть платы с VRM) немного прикрыт корпусом, хоть это и всего две полоски по несколько миллиметров, но без них и смотрелось бы лучше, и на душе спокойней было-бы.
Pros: Необычный дизайн, заводской разгон, не завышенная цена (покупал где-то за 16к рублей), знатное охлаждение, три замечательных игры в подарок, не самый скудный комплект.
Cons: Необычный дизайн так-же и недостаток, охлаждение не самое тихое, ну и пожалуй почему-то на вид как игрушка.
