We are going to upload a new application for cuda4.2 which will support Kepler.
At first it will not be optimized for Kepler, but it will run on it.

This application on Fermi is 15% faster than current production app. A GTX680 on it has the same speed of a GTX580 without changes to the code. Few changes are capable of making the GTX680 at least 10% faster than a GTX580, but the compiler is still too buggy to put it out.

Linux first.

Do we need newest driver for cuda4.2 support? 15% more power on 560ti looks great :)

You'd need 295.x, 296.x or as far as I understand the GTX680 301.10. All of them have the sleep bug so you'll need to make sure it doesn't go to sleep or power save mode.

When app will be ready, we have prepared one gtx680 for test with ubuntu 11.4 + Drivers 295.33 (x64).

Same here, I stopped worrying about it some time ago. Often Linux is so ridiculously cumbersome.. even it's father has been annoyed recently :p
