EVGA GTX 670 Superclocked Graphics Card Review


It's launch day again, and this time it's for the second card in NVIDIA's 600 series line-up, the GTX 670. EVGA is one of NVIDIA's most well-known and well-regarded add-in board (AIB) partners, and we have one of their GTX 670 Superclocked cards to run through our testing.

Wow...... what a little beast and $100 less than a 680 and damn close/better in some cases b/c of turbo... heh.

This should force AMD to lower prices on some cards I would imagine!

Yeah, I'm thinking so too. Mini-beast for a relatively mini-price

Reminds me of this little guy

Very nice review.

Might have to change my 580s for 670s instead of 680s!

EVGA has them on their site:

Vanilla GTX670
GTX670 Superclocked
GTX670 FTW

There is also a Galaxy card @ TigerDirect: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...312&CatId=7387

They aren't up at Newegg yet that I can find.

why spend more on a superclocked? it looks like they have the same VRM sections as the vanilla and a paltry overclock? Save yourself $20 (or $40 from the FTW, depending on if it has a beefier VRM section).

Thinking the same thing in product specs can't tell. But it does make me question is the 680 worth the extra 100-120 bucks.

Still will wait for Asus or MSI to come with the better cooling models to decided.

Amazon Superclocked is on!!! http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007Z3HZGM/...=ATVPDKIKX0DER

Now this one or the Galaxy version? Which one would you choose?

The galaxy is a non-reference board, there are pros and cons.

Pros: Way, way, way better cooling. May OC further, may not.
Cons: Probably no software voltage control. I have no idea what Galaxy's warranty support is like.

Get the cheapest card from a name brand you can find then.
Skip the OC editions, skip the more expensive non-reference editions.

Now I'll get the Gtx 670 SuperClocked from EVGA... If I'll do 2 days shipping and If I wake up and see the Galaxy one online, I'll return the EVGA and get it. Can't stay here, too sleepy
