How well can the GeForce GTX 680M run games
14 Nov 2019 - 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 good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2070 Mobile. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 260% better and can meet 982 of their recommended requirements. Alternatively if you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500M 8GB. This PC hardware upgrade performs 124% better and can run 606 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games.

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.

You could try overclocking maybe up to 10%, or if you are lucky to 20%.
However it will decrease the lifespan of your card a lot, which is something you might want to reconsider.
The GTX 680m will play almost all games on high, and if you really want to max out every game i wouldn't recommend getting an laptop.

I know (have seen) the power of this card and till now,every game I tried,including crysis 2 was maxed with a great fps ratio. Just the temp is high but I will buy a cooller.I won't overclock it soon but I ask cause I don't have too much experience on overclocking and I like those stuff,so I want to learn more! :P

What the f*, how could you even manage the temperature. You would need somekind of mega cooling system to get that down to a reasonable temp. And thats a laptop graphics card so I think that would be barely possible.

Who has one of these? I ordered a laptop that comes with one inside, and I want to know what to expect from it in as far as performance goes.
This is going to be my gaming platform, I ordered the MSI GT70 452US. Had some good reviews, but that can only go so far.
If anyone has one of these GPU's, can you let me know what kind of frames you're getting in maxed settings?

Hallo budy!! i have an MSI GT70 MS-1762. i have manually installed an 120gb ssd so our last and only difference is the cpu. i have i7-3610qm and you have the 3630qm which is 5% more powerfull than mine,minor! Its a very good laptop since we talk about the whole laptop (i have the barebone edition,not the branded) with very good fps ratios. on starcraft 2 max settings i got 65-90 fps. on assassin's creed maxed i get around 100fps and on league of legends 90-280 fps max settings and 1920x1080 res. The only bad thing about the platform is the heat. even with the turbo cooler function on…

…the gpu temp,on high settings through nvidia pannel, is around 80-90 degrees. and then you buy a notebook cooller to keep it cool! :P

I recently got mine in the mail, things amazingly fast with the SSD. I don't have the heat issue however, I have a Zalman cooler and I it stays pretty damn cool.
I tested Skyrim with the High Res textures, ran flawlessly, not sure about the fps I was getting, but it ran really smooth.
Also been running Farcry 3 maxed, also very smooth.
My favorite part so far has been actually been the keyboard, it's amazing. The color patterns you can display sell it amazingly.

Since you talk about patterns I guess you have the branded edition,cause I have the barebone and I only have blue. (but I am a fan of blue! xD )

I think that the amd cpu pairs better with amd gpu since its the same company. No personal experience though… And btw,with those components,it doesn't sound exacty like a 'budget' pc!

A budget of around 600-700 :P
And It doesnt really matter if the company of the GPU and the CPU is the same, it just depends on the GPU itself.

As I said I don't have any personal experience but if I was the CEO I would have some features added to force customers buy them together,and I guess they may have consider of that,not sure though… 600-700 for the tower? I've done a minor search and without any hdd,dvd and additional fans it is about 720€ (MSI 970A-G46 mobo,PNY 660 ti 2gb,fx 8350,hyperx 16gb 1600mhz,CoolerMaster K380 case and Aerocool Strike-X 600W power supply) p.s. hd 7950 is more expensive.

Yes,
GTX 675M is a renamed 580M which is a fast GTX 485M.
On other hand, GTX 680M is based on the new Kepler Core and a downclocked desktop GTX 670.
