NVIDIA & EVGA GeForce GTX 670 2GB Video Card Review

What happens when you disable one of the Streaming Multiprocessor (SMX) units on the NVIDIA GK104 processor used for the GeForce GTX 680 video card? If you answered that you come up with a GeForce GTX 670 video card that is available for $100 less, you are on the right track! Read on to see how the new GeForce GTX 670 2GB video card performs when we put it to the test!

NVIDIA has done a remarkable job with the GeForce GTX 670 and it is the card to buy right now. The performance is close to that of a GeForce GTX 680 and the price tag is $100 lower, so there really isn't much bad to say about the card. The performance, power usage, appearance and overclocking abilities are all in order. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 is a great graphics card that is going to bring a world of hurt to AMD.

AquagraFX is got a waterblock in the works, would only assume others are as well.

With the popularity of mini ITX gaming rigs climbing this little guy is going to be VERY popular.

Think I need to start saving up some cash and start some planning for my rig.

Great review of a great card!
Thanks Apo, you just saved me $100.

Wondering what happens to the temps when you OC as the card was already a little hot? :snakeman:
ga-z77-dh3 (great & cheap O/C'er from Gigabyte)
i2600k/16 gigs Kingson 1600 (OC'ed to 4.5Ghz)
CoolerMaster Hyper 212 + (lapped, smok'in deal, 38C idle, 65C loaded)
MSI GTX 660ti Power Edition
Antec 900 case (quiet)

I turned the fan up to 60% for overclocking and it was lower than default load temps. Since most people don't leave the fan on Auto for a maximum overclock it was hard to toss it in the charts.

Let me pull my foot out of my mouth. Yes it was a GTX 670 pictured in the other thread. I like the recommended power supply (500W). Just a few years back the second to fastest video card was in the 700W ballpark range if I'm not mistaken. Keep shrinking that silicon.
