There's an EVGA news report about 5 different models on the main page, but nothing firm WRT dates.

I never thought to look at their site because I don't think I've ever seen a non-ref air-cooled EVGA card before, but indeed they have one for the 680 line: the SC Signature 2. Interesting.

hopefully they will release new drivers soon, cause the one that's out now is crap not even optimize at all. Right now some game run worst than my two Evga GTX80 Superclocked Edition.

I bought two Zotac GTX680

Because the 7970 is out-gunned by the 680 while being more expensive. And believe me not myself nor any person in here wants AMD to go away... It's only because of AMD, NVIDIA have priced their 680 at $500 and not $600-700.

Ive noticed ncix and memory express has upped their 680 price for 499.99 to ~530. Even the ASUS gtx680 at ncix is listed as 599.99 regular price.

Are prices expected to continue to rise or will they be falling again when a lot more hit the shelves? I feel like I need to rush out and put a pre order in just in case they bump it up to 550 or even worse... more.
