Summary: The new GEFORCE GTX 670 from NVIDIA is a really strong video card and Palit have come out with a really nice version of it straight away that only makes it better. NVIDIA are starting to become a real thorn in the side of AMD as they attack the area that AMD has always been strongest in; pricing.
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
