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
