Martin takes the NVIDIA GTX680 to it's limits and pits it against some of the latest and most demanding games available today. Then overclocks it and does it again

 

Anno 2070

Anno 2070 is the first DX11 game I’ve decided to use, it’s not a game I’ve played much, but the gameplay isn’t half bad and isn’t quite as straight forward as other strategy games I’ve played, requires more patience and a little bit more planning from my point of view.
With it being a DX11 title, I figured that it’d be quite GPU intensive. For the settings I ran everything on the highest that it’d go (Including AA and AF where applicable) running full screen at 1920x1080.
Having played some of the previous Anno games, I was pleased with the IQ increases from them and found some of the scenery to be quite eye pleasing, without going off on a tangent, here are the results that I got from my GTX680 while playing ;

A strong start for the GTX680 when it comes to playing games, not only was Anno 2070 looking brilliantly, but it was also running very smooth. One thing I’ll point out however, the longer you’ll be playing, you’d likely experience lower average frames as scenes become heavier and more action packed, but as you can see from the minimums, even in the intensive scenes I encountered, the GTX680 was still pumping out plenty of frames to keep stable and fluid gameplay (A positive reason on why people monitor minimum frame rates as opposed to just the average). Overall, as you can see, the GTX680 is so far performing very strongly.
