Nvidia's New GTX 680 is the New King of Single GPU Graphics Cards

Unquestionable dominance for Nvidia may mean price drops from AMD.

The GTX 680 is Nvidia's latest graphics card and the first desktop graphics card to utilize the new Kepler chipset. There was some question about how it would hold up compared to Nvidia's impressive high end offerings. The answer is that Nvidia is back on top.

The GTX 680 is now the fastest single-GPU graphics card on the market – that's a title that's well worth coveting. It's also relatively cheap for a flagship card, coming in at right around $500. That means that we'll likely see a drop in prices on AMD's cards to match.
