Nvidia's upcoming card is GTX 680

Was refered internally as GTX 670 Ti


There has been a lot of talk recently regarding the actual name of Nvidia's upcoming graphics card based on the Kepler GK104 GPU and according to our info, the card will launch as the GTX 680.

The GTX 670 Ti name was used by Nvidia internally and some suppliers simply picked up the name. The rumour has it that Nvidia planned to launch it as the GTX 670 Ti but the GPU performed just a bit better than expected and thus it was decided to launch it as the GTX 680. Of course, other side of the story comes from Nvidia's "disappointment" with AMD's Tahiti GPU and Radeon HD 7900 series that was detailed back in January and it might be the point in time when Nvidia decided that GK104 could be launched as the GTX 680.

The GTX 680 name is pretty much carved in stone as boxes went out to printing (and are probably done by now) and the GTX 670 Ti name is simply a trace name from suppliers that weren't additionally informed on the name change. There is a possibility that the GTX 670 Ti might be launched a bit later but there are currently no plans for a card with that name, at least not before the end of April.

According to our info, the card is still scheduled to launch in about ten days, on March 23rd.
