In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 680M SLI are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 770M.

The GeForce GTX 770M has a 91 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 680M, but the GTX 680M has 144 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GTX 770M. As a result, the GTX 680M exhibits a 96.4 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GeForce GTX 770M. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GeForce GTX 770M has a 91 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 680M, but the GTX 680M has 40 more Render Output Units than the GeForce GTX 770M. As a result, the GTX 680M exhibits a 26.6 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GeForce GTX 770M. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GeForce GTX 770M was released less than a year after the GTX 680M, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GTX 680M has 1024 MB more video memory than the GeForce GTX 770M, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 680M also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 680M has 134.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GTX 770M, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 680M is massively better than the GeForce GTX 770M.

The GeForce GTX 680M SLI has 2688 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 770M has 960. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 680M is 1935 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 770M is 779. The GTX 680M having 1156 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 680M delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GTX 770M.

The GeForce GTX 680M SLI requires 200 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 770M requires 75 Watts. The GTX 680M requires 125 Watts more than the GeForce GTX 770M to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 680M may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce GTX 770M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 680M SLI is a solution of two GeForce GTX 680M put together using NVIDIA'S SLI technology.
As it's known, GeForce GTX 680M is based on the Kepler GK104 Core, featuring 1344 Shading Units but with lower clock frequencies putting its performance at level with a desktop GeForce GTX 660.
As usual, SLI relies a lot on proper driver support. Benchmarks indicate the performance is overall, about 45% better than a single GeForce GTX 680M performing by itself but at times it performed worse than a single GeForce GTX 680M.
Even the most demanding games will run at the highest settings.
GeForce GTX 770M is a Performance Mobile Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Kepler Architecture.

The Kepler Architecture was NVIDIA's big step to power efficiency. Each Stream Multiprocessor (SMX) now hosts 192 Shader Processing Units - against the 48 of older Fermi Architecture, and has been redesigned being now clocked at the same speed of the Central Unit. This means they are more energy efficient and will consequently lead to cooler operating temperatures. However, it also means they are weaker. It can be said that one Fermi SMX is as fast as 2 Kepler SMXs.
Additionally, and not available in all GPUs, Kepler also introduced the Boost Clock Feature. The Boost Clock is an even higher Clock Speed activated when in gaming mode and becomes the effective speed of the GPU.

It equips a GPU Codenamed Kepler GK106-N14E-GS-A1 which has 5 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 960 Shader Processing Units, 80 TMUs and 24 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 811MHz.

The GPU accesses a 3GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 192-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 1002MHz.

DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, Kepler Boost, Optimus, CUDA, OpenCL, DirectCompute, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 75W, it is suited for large laptops.

GeForce GTX 770M is essentially a fast GeForce GTX 675MX.
Gaming benchmarks indicate its performance is slightly better than the older GeForce GTX 675MX.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Powerful Processor (Intel Core i7 Mobile) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX 770M.
