How well can the GeForce GTX 680M run games
4 Jul 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

A mid to low level graphics card, the GeForce GTX 680M is found in budget machines nowadays, struggling to meet AAA system requirements. DirectX 11 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 680M graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 680M in your PC? You should definitely consider replacing this GeForce GTX 680M graphics card, if it is still in your gaming PC.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 680M? A great upgrade graphics card would be a 20 Series GeForce RTX 2060 Mobile, which has 185% better performance and can run 833 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today.

GeForce GTX 680M Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 680M is a High-End Mobile Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Kepler Architecture.


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.


GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed Kepler Kepler GK104-N13E-GTX-A2 which has 7 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 1344 Shader Processing Units, 112 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 719MHz.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.


Features
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 100W, it is suited for very large sized laptops.


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


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