EVGA GeForce GTX 670 FTW 2GB review: popular GTX 670
13 March 2013
Excerpt: The EVGA GeForce GTX 670 FTW has been one of the most popular graphics cards in our Price Comparer for some time now, so we felt we should probably take a closer look at that card to see what the fuss is all about. We submitted it to our standard GPU testing procedure. The GeForce GTX 670 is a viable alternative for the GeForce GTX 680. According to our tests, the 670 is only about 10 percent slower, but it is significantly cheaper.
GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 670 (2GB) with WINDFORCE 3X Cooling Technology
27 November 2012
Excerpt: Instead of releasing a plain-jane GIGABYTE branded reference design video card for its volume GeForce GTX 670 product, GIGABYTE injected its own style into its offering. Like the headlining products across the whole GIGABYTE GeForce 600 series, its top of the line GTX 670 product features a WINDFORCE cooler.
Excerpt: Even though the Kepler GK104 GPU is now matured in the market, there is still a ton of life left in this not-so-small chip and Galaxy sent us a new graphics card to demonstrate just that. The Galaxy GeForce GTX 670 GC 4GB card that we are reviewing today takes the GTX 670 GPU ( originally released and reviewed on May 10th ) and juices it up on two different fronts: clock rates and memory capacity.
Summary: GIGABYTE has a new custom cooled and factory overclocked version of the GeForce GTX 670 known as the GIGABYTE GV-N670OC-2GD. We examine how well GIGABYTE's Windforce 3X cooling technology allows us to overclock this next generation video card. We will compare it to a Radeon HD 7950 and a reference GeForce GTX 670.
Excerpt: We really dig it when the two big discrete GPU makers are firing on all cylinders. Our workload may increase exponentially as NVIDIA and AMD volley grenades back and forth, but the excitement that’s generated as a result, is a rush for hardware guys like us. And if the overall engagement and comments posted by you all reading this are any indicator, action in the GPU space is exciting for you folks too.
Summary: It looks like NVIDIA took their highly successful GK104 graphics processor and tried to reduce cost of all the other components as much as possible. We see a tiny PCB, low-cost cooler and conservative component selection. Normally this should be a recipe for disaster. But that's not the case with the GeForce GTX 670. While the card feels like a wimp, it becomes a champ once you feed it some graphics.
Pros: Good performance increase over last generation, Very power efficient, Good overclocking potential, Fair price, Up to four active displays now, makes surround possible with one card, Support for PCI-Express 3.0 and DirectX 11.1, Support for CUDA and PhysX
Cons: Cooler not as quiet as other GTX 670 cards, Memory not cooled, Dynamic OC can't be turned off, Manual overclocking more complicated than before, No technology similar to AMD's ZeroCore power
Excerpt: While the graphics power found in the new GeForce GTX 690 , the GeForce GTX 680 and even the Radeon HD 7970 are incredibly impressive, if we are really honest with ourselves the real meat of the GPU market buys options much lower than $999. Today's not-so-well-kept-secret release of the GeForce GTX 670 attempts to bring the price to entry of the NVIDIA Kepler architecture down to a more attainable level while also resetting the performance per dollar metrics of the GPU...
