On the day of the GeForce GTX 680 launch, we hosted a "Live Review" to discuss the new product features and performance while also taking questions from a live chat room and via Twitter.  NVIDIA's own Tom Petersen stopped by the offices to talk with us and to show off the hardware features with some live demos of GPU Boost, overclocking and quite a bit more.

If you haven't seen the video yet, you should definitely do so; Tom does a great job explaining the new technology involved with the Kepler GPU.  One caveat: the recording process was a bit off and the recording actually starts just a few minutes AFTER we actually began the live stream.  Sorry!

For more information on other upcoming events you can follow PC Perspective on Twitter, Facebook or Google+ or just check http://pcper.com/live for the latest schedule!

LMAO, let's just say FRAPS may have recorded a certain microphone input accidentally and my dog just happened to start going nuts >.>. It is an example of whatever can go wrong will go wrong ;)

Thanks Ryan, that was awesome. So how does a kid from Kentucky get an Nvidia Rep to come there to do a live launch? Kind of kidding, you guys came out of nowhere on my radar and I've since deleted 90% of my pc hardware links, I just come here now. One thing kept poking me in the eye though, "This copy of Windows is not Genuine".

Thanks!!

An informative video but unfortunately it doesn't make sense to me that NVIDIA is showing off a product that can not be obtained. These are sold out everywhere. That tells me that NVIDIA was not properly prepared for launch day. It doesn't matter how good your product is when there aren't any to buy. A major fail on NVIDIA's part.

I hope you guys (Ryan) trash Nvidia for availability of the 680 the same way you guys jumped all over AMD for the same issue of the 7900 cards.

March 26, 2012 | 07:31 PM - Posted by Ryan Shrout

Agreed.

The difference in my mind is that NVIDIA shared with me numbers of shipped cards where AMD was and still is incredibly secretive about it.
