Finally, the Kepler architecture, the successor to Fermi, has launched after it was first teased to tech media like HardwareZone during the NVIDIA Graphics Technology Conference in 2010.

Based on the 28nm process technology, the GK104 GPU of the GeForce GTX 680 graphics card has a base clock speed of 1006MHz, which can be further boosted to 1058MHz or more (we've seen up to 1100MHz) with the architecture's new GPU Boost feature.

It features a range of new technologies including a new streaming multiprocessor block named "SMX", responsible for delivering twice the performance per watt of previous-generation products, and new FXAA and TXAA anti-aliasing techniques and Adaptive VSync technologies so visual quality is increased without compromising gaming performance.

Add-in card partners such as ASUS, EVGA, Zotac, Palit, and Gainward have jumped on the bandwagon by releasing their respective GeForce GTX 680 cards. Here's a quick look.
