So the GTX 680 is launching with 1536 CUDA cores, compared to its predecessor the GTX 580 with with 512.

Since NVidia was always so much worse than AMD because it used fewer, but stronger cores, will this make Nvidia actually viable for mining?

Thera are few other topics with same question. Simple answer: NO!
nVidia still sucks when comes to mining.

Under development Modular UPGRADEABLE Miner (MUM). Looking for investors.
Changing one PCB with screwdriver and you have brand new miner in hand... Plug&Play, scalable from one module to thousands.

Shouda tried to search 'Kepler' in the search box instead.

At the time many speculations started, we didn't even know for sure that the 680 would be the first Kepler card released. Also, you have it in your subject heading.
