My System Specs


unfortunately I think you bought a 6670 with very low memory speed. Looking on newegg there is memory anywhere from ddr3 1000,1200,1333,1600, 1800mhz all the way to ddr5 1000mhz (4000effective). I would bet that if its reporting 500mhz you have a 1000mhz version (its actually 1000 effective because its ddr). The reviews you are reading probably have faster memory.

It would be a faster card if you had gone with a 1gb version, but with higher memory speeds (especially if it was gddr5)
