In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 675M SLI are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 680MX.

The GeForce GTX 680MX has a 99 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GTX 675M. This results in the GeForce GTX 680MX providing 12.6 GTexel/s better texturing performance. 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 680MX has a 99 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 675M, but the GTX 675M has 32 more Render Output Units than the GeForce GTX 680MX. As a result, the GTX 675M exhibits a 16.7 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GeForce GTX 680MX. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GeForce GTX 680MX was released less than a year after the GTX 675M, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GTX 675M has 2048 MB more video memory than the GeForce GTX 680MX, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 675M also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 675M has 32 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GTX 680MX, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 675M is noticeably better than the GeForce GTX 680MX.

The GeForce GTX 675M SLI has 768 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 680MX has 1536. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 675M is 952 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 680MX is 1104. The GeForce GTX 680MX having 152 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GTX 675M performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GeForce GTX 680MX transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 675M. This means that the GeForce GTX 680MX is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 675M.

The GeForce GTX 675M SLI requires 200 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 680MX requires 122 Watts. The GTX 675M requires 78 Watts more than the GeForce GTX 680MX to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 675M may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce GTX 680MX.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 675M SLI is a solution of two GeForce GTX 675M put together using NVIDIA'S SLI technology.
Check the page of GeForce GTX 675M to know more about its chip.
As usual, SLI relies a lot on proper driver support and may suffer from micro-stuttering in lower frame rates (below 30). Benchmarks indicate the performance is overall, about 35% better than a single GeForce GTX 675M performing by itself but at times (depending whether or not the 3D game supports SLI or in the graphics driver) it performed worse than a single GeForce GTX 675M.
Even the most demanding games will run at the highest settings.
GeForce GTX 680MX is a High-End 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 Kepler GK104-N13E-GTX-A2 which has 8 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 1536 Shader Processing Units, 128 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 719MHz.

The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1250MHz.

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

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 122W, it is suited for very large sized laptops.

Gaming benchmarks indicate is not too far from the desktop GeForce GTX 660 Ti.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Power Processor (Intel Core i7 Mobile) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX 680MX.
