Default NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 2GB Review Comment Thread

While the GTX 680 is NVIDIA's brute force flagship product, their new GTX 670 is targeted towards a lower, more affordable price point. But that doesn't mean this $399 card lacks the ability to compete with some of the best the market has to offer. Indeed, as we find out in this review, it does toe to toe against AMD's HD 7970.

On sale at Memory express and NCIX. Get em before there gone.

Well done Nvidia and nice review as always. Come on AMD don't ruin the old ATI along with your CPU.

So once again NVIDIA has completely destroyed AMD in the relevant price bracket. Truly amazing.

Also, how in the hell did they get the board that small. That's an insanely small PCB.

Honestly, don't think about buying this thing and then complain that it's not available. Just go for it....

Nice review, ordered from NCIX, if they put me on backorder, I'm going to be f*cking pissed. Tried to pick one up from CC last night only to find out they only had one, and it was on hold.

Seems like AMD is in a bit of pickle now but with no new lower tier cards from Nvidia yet, they still has a fighting chance

Yeah I could not believe it when I saw that board under the shroud just how tiny it is.
I cannot imagine how they pulled that one off.

Real winner right here,

On a second note I think this GPU now makes it possible to get back in the realm of a high end gaming computer (single GPU) that will run safely on a 500-550w PSU vice the common norm of a 650w at present.

I can confirm that with a good 500W PSU should have no issue powering this + a Sandy Bridge / IVB setup.
