gtx 580 vs gtx 680 with an i7 2700k

Recommended Posts

i know i was only joking i think maybe in a couple of years we will be able to get decent enough frame rates at heathrow to max it out hopefully anyway.

50 years we will have same computational structure?

 

Of course we will still be using a 32bit program... I mean DUH!?!?! :LMAO: :LMAO: :LMAO: :LMAO: :LMAO:

I doubt hardware is going to get much better than what we have at the moment. Unless Intel has a breakthrough technology that runs CPUs at 8GHZ, I don't see us ever using FSX to its absolute potential.

i don't know clock speeds havn't gone up that much since 2007 but fsx performs alot better on the newer cpus i will be very dissapointed if i can't get 30fps at heathrow with all the add ons with the technology in a couple of years time.

I really would like to know the results if Word Not Allowed is able to do some GTX580 vs GTX680 tests.

I read the other thread about the shaders en the conclusions, but if Word Not Allowed comes to the same conclusions only then I am going to buy a GTX680.

 

So Word Not Allowed....... B)

so basically we still can't max out fsx at places like heathrow and hong kong.

 

In FSX this has more to do with CPU clock speed than anything else. Switching from a 580 to GTX680 won't change this...

 

To expand a little.... the reason you'd change from a 580 to 680 would be if you wanted more supersampling or multisampling AA.... (ie less jaggies), or if you were running multimonitor and/or high resolution monitors.

 

In addition to the above... What defines "maxed out?" Sliders fully right in FSX with plain jane vanilla FSX? Yeah you can probably get very close with today's hardware. But once you run addons, AI traffic, payware planes/scenery, and custom cfg edits you won't get that performance. I still only get about 15 fps in KSEA Orbx, with F1 Mustang, LOD 6.5 and almost maxed scenery... 60% AI airplane traffic

yeh with addons like uk2000 heathrow and aerosoft vfr london and rex and ultimate terrain and woai traffic with every slider right and light bloom and everything on my i7 2700k is at 5ghz and only uses 1.36vcore so im going to buy a proper water cooler and see if i can get it a bit higher to 5.2ghz or something hopefully that will give me some more performance.

Probably not that much. You're at 5GHz @ 1.36v holy crap! I'm at 1.35v and can only go to 4.4... of course I got a crappy overclocker...

The 680 and 580 are the same price, where I bought mine, so I bought the 680. I thought, "well, why not?"

There is still some common sense in this world. Good for you. hard to believe they are the same price. Where?

i am tempted to sell my gtx 580 and get a gtx 680 waiting for results if i do get a gtx 680 what is the best one to get a 2gb one or 4gb one.

I would recommend the 2GB version.

At the egg, about 1 month ago. I was pretty surprised -- so I snapped up the 680. I was indeed concerned about driver maturity with the 6 series. I normally would not build a rig that way, but I thought I would ride the wild side for once.

 

The 680 I received, was a faulty card. Any of you wonder what I've been up to the last couple of weeks? I worked feverishly to get that card working, and tried every trick I know of that wouldn't void warranty. I ended up RMA'ing the card, and yesterday I received the replacement card.

 

I have my fingers crossed on this second card. So far, so good. The model I have, is an air cooled card, although it does have two (2) fans as opposed to one which I believe to be the reference design. The fans are quiet at the stock rpm -- at least they are not louder than the two Corsair fans attached to my radiator. The temps are lower than what I'm used to-- 30-40C after a lengthy FSX session. Same after a couple of hours in Civ4. My old 8800GTX would be runnng at 70C after that by comparison.

 

My initial impression, bolstered by load, voltage, and temp values I see in GPU-Z, and what I know about FSX, is that Civ4 and FSX do not even come close to taxing this card, probably similar to the 580 in that regard. We'll see how we stand once I start adding some custom AA settings though.

 

I have not begun to tweak it yet; my initial loadup and flight in FSX was very nice. Installed 301.42's. Now, I'm off to do some testing...
