There has been a lot of speculation about the GTX 680's hashing power, but no real results with optimized mining code. There are many brands being sold at Newegg now.

  Mine should arrive Tuesday.  Will post results when I can.

Oh Loaded, who art up in Mt. Gox, hallowed be thy name!  Thy dollars rain, thy will be done, on BTCUSD.  Give us this day our daily 10% 30%, and forgive the bears, as we have bought their bitcoins.  And lead us into quadruple digits

Well, lets be real about this:

More than 24 hours have passed since Kepler appeared in the market. The 7970 at launch already had tests performed on mining, and results were already published in reviews. This is probably the fourth (+fifth?) topic on this card in this forum, yet no data is available for its performance in mining on the internet. Only speculative theoretical numbers have appeared in this forum, though we know the card is "castrated" in at least one sense, and "leaner" than its previous generation for graphical operations.

nVidia site and online reviews talk about games, games, games, and some potentially interesting/relevant synthetic benchmarks.  There are reviews that discuss Kepler "GPGPU functionality" to be mainly in Quadro and Tesla.

Seems convincing the the lack of publicity on mining might indicate this card is best suited for killing dragons and firing/reloading weapons?

I have someone with a card who should be benching this with RPC-miner shortly

Please try with both RPC-miner and Ufasoft (-t 0).

More than 24 hours have passed since Kepler appeared in the market. The 7970 at launch already had tests performed on mining, and results were already published in reviews.

That's because AMD outright said in their slides that you can mine better using their cards.  Since we already know you can mine very well with AMD, it's not surprising people had tested it akin to a program in benchmarks or very soon after launch.

Even if we know the 680 isn't a miner's card in a sense, I know people just want to know what it'll put up, myself included.  Since the community as a whole doesn't really equate Nvidia cards to being good for mining, it's easy to ignore it.

Once people test, I'm sure #s will come soon enough.

The person who I know tried to get it running with rpcminer-cuda but is having trouble getting the executable to run correctly (problems with the CUDA modules).  I guess we'll have to wait.  Sad

tacotime,

Ask him to try with Ufasoft, should be hassle free. Use it like: bitcoin-miner-64.exe -t 0 -o http://worker_name:worker_password@mining_pool:port

Still no answer as to how this card can perform under bitcoin mining huh? This card appears to be sold out in a number of places, but still no actual figures, surely someone must have done some experimentation with Kepler by now at the very least. Still curious about this brand new piece of hardware, anyone have any results?

From the Newbie section: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=74215.0

Sorry, I can't post in the main 680 thread because I lurk.

Hey, just got back from the store with a 680. Here's a quick benchmark for people, and it's not looking good so far.

This is a stock EVGA gtx680, with latest drivers (301.10) and ufasoft 0.28, run with -t 0, under win7 x64.

Getting around 105Mh/s.

 Cry

Thankfully I didn't buy it for mining.

Try RPCMiner-CUDA with the CUDA dev kit, something doesn't sound right.

  Just got my card in today Wink.  Going through the paperwork part (registering etc. / grabbing drivers) and going to be installing it shortly.  Should have it benched by tonight.

Apparently I can post in here now. I'll see if I can get this going. I agree the number doesn't sound right, but that's what I got with what I did (ufasoft 0.28 binary, win7 x64, 301.10 drivers).

  Hey guys,

  Sorry for the delay but had errands this evening while trying to also sit and benchmark lots of stuff.

  Apparently Kuro is indeed correct in his results.  I figure stuff simply is not optimized for it just yet or that there must be some difference in how the 680 utilizes CUDA compared to the 580.

  Since I'm no command line expert, I just did the following:

  1.  Launch GUIMiner (my version was 2011-8-24) which I'd normally use just fine.  Tried the same settings for my 680 that worked with my 580.  Nothing.  
  2.  Updated GUIMiner to the latest I think (2012-2-19) and tried the settings again.  Nothing.
  3.  Started launching miners by attempting each of the miner options.
  
  OpenCL = Works but might blank the display.  Crashed the system once I stopped it but did get mining results.  System seemed stable while mining.
  Phoenix = Launched but sat at "Connection Problems"  No luck despite being configured correctly.
  CG = Same as above.
  CUDA = Same as above.
  Ufasoft = Same as above but without any "Connection Problems" at all.  Start mining button did nothing.
  Other Miner .. not sure what to try here.

  Results with the one or two miners I tried (forgot to name the tab so Phoenix may work as well as OpenCL):

  http://dfullerton.smugmug.com/photos/i-hQKTvnQ/0/X3/i-hQKTvnQ-X3.jpg
  

  Indeed, we're at ~110MH/sec.  This is stock w/GPU boost.  I have not yet attempted to even mess with power boosting and overclocking the card but either way it doesn't really matter at this point in time.

  Here's hoping that a proper update to things will eventually happen!  Thanks for the patience everyone.  As far as games go outside of BTC mining, this card rocks.  But alas, that's not why we're here.  I'm sure once some optimizations are made, it might work better.

  Drivers are the Nvidia 301.10 launch (only ones so far) and running Windows 7 x64.

Oh Loaded, who art up in Mt. Gox, hallowed be thy name!  Thy dollars rain, thy will be done, on BTCUSD.  Give us this day our daily 10% 30%, and forgive the bears, as we have bought their bitcoins.  And lead us into quadruple digits

Ew, This is such a double edged sword for me, Im an AMD fanboy, And i was going "HA nvidia sucks a mining ahaha amd ftw"
And then the gtx 680's were announced, And i thought "oh shit, 1536 CUDA cores (assumed SPcore equivalency) looks like it'll get around 300ish! Good job nvidia! now AMD will try harder!"
annnd 110mh/sec...
It just doesnt seem right... I mean like, Yeah i was hoping for failure, but not the kind of business wrecking failure

Lots of stream processors for mining - right idea. Lousy integer performance: Fail.

Darn and I hate ATI so much.

Primary developer/maintainer for cgminer and ckpool/ckproxy.
Pooled mine at kano.is, solo mine at solo.ckpool.org
