After recently retesting the GeForce GTX 580 eight years after its release, we thought it would be interesting to check back in on the GTX 680, another old friend that was released about six years ago as Nvidia's latest and greatest graphics card and a successor to the aforementioned 580.
As one can expect, Nvidia has released a new set of GeForce drivers (version 391.01) that promise the optimal gaming experience for Final Fantasy XV, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Warhammer: Vermintide 2, and World of Tanks 1.0.
Nvidia has chosen a constant cycle of improvements for its drivers and the latest GeForce driver 390.77 is a testament to that. This new driver promises the optimal gaming experience for Kingdom Come: Deliverance, War Thunder, Black Desert Online, and Metal Gear Survive.
Today we're turning our clocks all the way back to November 2010 to revisit the once mighty GeForce GTX 580, a card that marked the transition from 55nm to 40nm for Nvidia's high-end GPUs and helped the company sweep its Fermi-based GeForce GTX 480 under the rug.

Although we've thoroughly benchmarked PU's Battlegrounds at this point and it's based on the same UE4 engine, we're interested to see just how much better optimized Fortnite is and we know many of you are as well having read all of your requests for this one.

A new set of certified graphics drivers from Nvidia promise optimal gaming experience for Fortnite, including support for ShadowPlay highlights in Battle Royale and for Nvidia Freestyle. We're currently benchmarking Fortnite with a boatload of GPUs, so expect another of our staple GPU/CPU performance features soon.
