Review: GeForce GTX 670 Graphics Cards from Gigabyte, Palit and Zotac
28 June 2012
Summary: Good, better, the best – this could be the best way to describe the main heroes of our today’s review. Each of these proprietary graphics cards boasts not only its own peculiar design, but also a number of exclusive features that make it truly unique.
Excerpt: Today the new NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 670 is officially launched to the market and while we managed to bring you a look at the reference GTX 670 running at stock and overclocked before others, today we're looking at our first retail offering.
Summary: 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 on the reference design. Palit has addressed the cooler by putting their dual-fan JetStream cooler on the card, but they kept the reference PCB.
Pros: Good performance increase over last generation, Overclocked out of the box, matches GTX 680, 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: 3D Noise levels not improved, 2 1/2 slot design not for all, 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: NVIDIA geht in die nächste Runde. Nach der Vorstellung der GeForce GTX 690 und der GTX 680, schickt man die GeForce GTX 670 ins Rennen. Dabei handelt es sich weiterhin um einen GK104-Chip, welchen NVIDIA nun allerdings in seinen Einheiten und Taktraten beschnitten hat, um ein kleineres Modell bieten zu können. Was diese GTX 670 zu bieten hat, muss sie im heutigen Test unter Beweis stellen.
