According to the company GeForce GTX 680 blazes through the latest titles faster than AMD's top-of-the-line Radeon HD 7970. The new architecture, codenamed "Kepler," revolves around what's dubbed an SMX, with control logic plus 192 cores—more than enough to offset the power-saving move of running at 1x graphics clock instead of 2x. The GeForce GTX 680 features eight SMX blocks (1,536 cores) running at 1,006MHz; 128 texture units; eight geometry units; four raster units; and 32 ROP units.
