Asus GTX680 Graphics Card Review

Shogun 2 is set in 16th-century feudal Japan, in the aftermath of the Ōnin War. The country is fractured into rival clans led by local warlords, each fighting for control. The player takes on the role of one of these warlords, with the goal of dominating other factions and claiming his rule over Japan. The standard edition of the game will feature a total of eight factions (plus a ninth faction for the tutorial), each with a unique starting position and different political and military strengths.

We are using the built in benchmark which is available via the STEAM client for this game.

Strong performance yet again, faster than the HD7770 in Crossfire. Shogun 2 runs better on AMD hardware, so the GTX680 can’t challenge the HD7970 this time.

    Price isn’t bad considering the performance. Small audience, but the bragging rights alone mean it is important.

    Nice, good power consumption too, which is something they always struggled with, Like Intel currently who can’t compete in mobile space.

    MSI R7970 lightning is a great card, well priced too. a lot of the reference cooled cards were £500 when they were released.

    I was looking to do an upgrade to this but the price and the fact I need a mobo upgrade (actually whole system) as well pulled me away. I would of done it if I wasn’t heading to college next year and I’m going to get a laptop.

    Thanks for that review. Big Green just gave AMD a slap in the face with lower prices and more performance. I can’t wait to get my hands on one of these beautiful cards. It will be really interesting to see what the manufacturers come out with for non-reference cards.
