GTX680 looks like a resolve beast

The specs for the gtx680 have leaked. And it looks like an insanely fast resolve card.

1536 cores. 2gb ram in the standard version, 4gb deluxe. And 2x6pin power interface with 195w TDP.

Means it should work in a stock Mac pro chassis.

Or an insane cubix system.

only issue with that slide is PCI 3 for full bandwidth. We can only pray this will happen in a future mac pro

PCIe2 with 16lanes is enough for sure... I think with pcie2 x8 you will have near same performance with resolve because the bandwidth is enough for 5k at least at 24fps. What you need is more Cuda Cores for processing, and with 1500 it will be 3x faster than gtx580... no more Gui card... :-). I think this card will be the standard gpu for resolve lite :-)

The question is, will be drivers for this beast, or we need to wait 2 more years?...

if nvidia - apple policy will hold then you do not need special drivers i assume?

I will not assume... new graphic card drivers is a pain with apple... maybe it can change...

what i meant was that now you have win and mac cards working side by side.

small step from there to new drivers.

The latest drivers are maintained by NVidia not Apple. And now have a unified driver set, which works with all their current cards. Question is just how long will it take to update with support for 680. My hope is it will ship with a supporting driver.

Hi Juan,
Just curious when this card is expected to start shipping?

Also, I would like to purchase a 570 or 580 asap can you point me to where best to buy one - i am located in NYC but would order online if it was better priced? I plan to update to Lion as soon as I can get the card.

Just to clarify I do not have an expansion chassis and would put the card in my 12-core replacing the 470 i currently have which does not have enough RAM to render out 5K. I want to be sure to avoid buying a card that will have too much of a power drain so is that just the 590?

If you or anyone reading this can link me to a resource to purchase the most powerful card possible right now for MacPro that would be great.
Best
Colin

My apologies, i did not see any responses about newegg.

Wow so with the release of this card coming so soon maybe I wait to see if this will be supported in the MacPro tower?
thanks again Juan!

It will never change,
buy a PC!

HP Z800, for example - it have more than enough PCI slots..

"no more Gui card"

Wow, you think a Quadro card running the GUI wont be a necessity once the 680 comes out?

A separate GUI card will still be necessary for best performance.

sure, I can work with only one gtx480 with realtime... its a little slower than with a gui card, but not so much.

Pretty cool. When you say slower, is this due to the type of source footage you are working or just how the GUI generally performs regardless of source footage resolution?

slower = less nodes at realtime

10.7.4 Beta Update breaks Nvidia support
on Mar 19, 2012 at 5:47:48 pm

As reported elsewhere, if you run the 10.7.4 seed that has been released, it will break the Nvidia support. The newer Nvidia drivers no longer init Non-EFI cards.

You can still use ATY_INit installed in extensions folder to make most of these cards work however.

Someone also needs to try putting pieces of the "magic" 10.7.3 drivers into a 10.7.4 install to see if it can be pieced together to keep newer cards working.

Be aware that running current 10.7.4 Beta will BREAK GTX570/580 support that came in new 10.7.3 drivers.

As much as we all want to think GTX680 will be working in Mac Pros from Day 1, keep in mind that from release of Fermi cards in March of 2010, we did not get functional OSX drivers until late fall of 2010 when Mac Quadro 4000 was released. It is possible that Nvidia and Apple will burn the midnite oil and release drivers from get go, but I wouldn't bet on it.
