Reviews and Problems with Gigabyte GeForce GTX 670
Showing 1-10 of 21
I got tired of AMD driver support.
10 October 2012
Summary: After getting burned by AMD when it came to Driver / Crossfire support on most of the major game releases last season I knew it was time to retire the 3x 6950s that I had when I saw the reviews for the 670. I had never tried Galaxy but I came to Amazon at the right time and they had cards in stock. I grabbed a pair and waited for their grand arrival. Once they arrived I had discovered that the cards do not come with a SLI cable.
Summary: I play games competitively. To be competent, I need to use a 120hz monitor and hence need a graphics card that can dish out more than a 120fps consistently. I bought this card after looking at the benchmarks. This is an overclocked 670, so it is as fast as a stock 680 and in some cases, faster. I decided to go for this instead of an overclocked 680 because the performance difference is close to 20 frames in most games whereas the price difference is a 100$.
Summary: Amazon sometimes has this card listed for pretty high, but if you can snag it at the 439 price point then get the 20 rebate, you're sitting on easily the most powerful ~400 card on the market. However, unless you have a multiple monitor setup, you would probably do just as well with the 2gb model. Fan is ultra quiet, temperatures seem to be quite average for the 670, and the clock speed is higher than many other 670's (granted this is about $30-$40 more expensive).
Summary: replaced my old card on an old dell desktop. now plays latest games at high framerates. ultra on borderlands 2, bioshock infinite. high on crysis 3. some stuttering on fast moving action though, it might be my processor though, its a 3 year old duel core 2.88.
Summary: Yes this card is the best version of the 670 you can get i think and prob the cheapest as well i got unlucky tho i bought it at £320 and 1 week later its £275 but other than that its great and you'll be able to run pretty much every game at full settings on this card provided you don't have a bad processor.
Summary: This GTX 670 chipset gives a PassMark test mark of 5346 very close to the highest of all cards. The card I was upgrading an ATI 7850 has a mark of 3,656 I was suprised that I only got a 3DMark 06 of 20,950 compared to 20,450 for the ATI 7850. I think that judging my figures you would need a very fast C.P.U that is heavily overclocked, to get the best out of it. I am using an Asus M4A89GTD Pro motherboard, AMD X4 965 o/c to 3.6 MHZ.
Summary: I bought this, hoping it would be more future proof than a £50 cheaper 660Ti. I got the FTW version, as it uses the 680 PCB, and is OC'd a bit, bringing it closer to the 680 in terms of performance (for £100 less!) and I like the dual fan setup on the Sig 2 version- quiter and cooler than the normal style blower. In most of my games I get 60FPS on Ultra, with GTA 4 being the only exception.
Great card but if you want to overclock further, might not be worth it.

Summary: I bought this card with the intention of clocking it further to get the most out of it. I had read some very impressive reports from the users on overclock.net so wanted to try and get up to their sorts of scores. I got an additional 103mhz out of the core clock, and 280mhz out of the memory before it became unstable in Heaven (all settings on max, 1920 x 1080, full screen).
