NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680, the new fastest GPU in the market sports a 1006 MHz base clock along with 2GB GDDR5 memory controlled by four 64-bit memory controllers. The GPU has multiple new features which you can watch in this released video:



GPU Boost, would allow for dynamic overclocking: games and other 3D apps that underuse certain parts of the graphics could see their performance improve with higher frequencies.

TXAA antialiasing, which purportedly smooths out visuals without the usual performance hit of other methods.

PhysX would now allow for dynamic fracturing, or splintering an object into pieces based on the exact impact rather than a predetermined route.

Hair and Fur rendering would get much more advanced by calculating as many as 100,000 hairs at once, getting much closer to real life when few objects are on the screen.
