NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 Review: Retaking The Performance Crownby Ryan Smith on March 22, 2012 9:00 AM EST
Our next game is Starcraft II, Blizzard’s 2010 RTS megahit. Much like Portal 2 it’s a DX9 game designed to run on a wide range of hardware so performance is quite peppy with most high-end cards, but it can still challenge a GPU when it needs to.
While AMD tends to suffer in Starcraft II at lower resolutions, at 2560 we tend to get a good brawl and the GTX 680 doesn’t disappoint. Here it leads the 7970 by 13% and leads the GTX 580 by 39%.
