Interestingly, the 680i LT shows a bit lower performance in a gaming environment than we expected. In all three of our gaming benchmarks, the 680i LT is out performed by the 680i SLI by a small margin. As gaming environments are heavy on memory usage, our 680i LT's lower memory performance and higher latencies are the likely culprit here. In any case, the performance drop certainly isn't large, and our numbers when overclocked are still quite good. These slight differences may be eliminated as the BIOS is tuned for this board over time.
