NVIDIA GTX does not need an introduction when it comes to dedicated graphics card for higher performance and unbeatable gaming experience. Whereas every graphics card built with NVIDIA GTX technology makes gaming extraordinary, today, we are going to compare two versions of NVIDIA GTX graphics card namely NVIDIA GTX 675M and NVIDIA GTX 680M.

GeForce GTX 600M series

NVIDIA GTX 675M vs 680M comparison will help you to decide, which one will be the best for your laptop. Let us start the NVIDIA GTX 675M vs 680M comparison from specifications:

As you can see the difference in the specifications of NVIDIA GTX 675M and NVIDIA GTX 680M is not much. Most of the specifications are similar. For example, 3D vision technology, Windows 7 compatibility, GDDR5 memory interface, 4.1 Open GL, etc. Moreover, both versions support the same technologies except TXAA, which is supported only by NVIDIA GTX 680M. This new support makes NVIDIA GTX 680M more robust in comparison to the previous version by improving the image quality and the performance.

Apart from TXAA, you will see a big difference in the GPU engine specifications that directly put an impact on the performance. With 1344 CUDA cores, 720 MHz graphics clock, and 80.6 billion/sec texture fill rat, NVIDIA GTX 680M is perfect for those who want ultimate image quality, faster access, and longer battery life. Though, NVIDIA GTX 675M is not bad at all, but NVIDIA GTX 680M is better than NVIDIA GTX 675M graphics. Depending on the needs, types of the games you play, and the duration you love to play games, you can make a decision. If you have been using NVIDIA GTX 675M and okay with its quality then there is no need to upgrade to NVIDIA GTX 680M, but if you want more i.e. more speed, more fine image, longer than before battery life, then go for NVIDIA GTX 680M.
