Seven GeForce GTX 670 Cards, Benchmarked And Reviewed
By

As you can see, Nvidia's reference design on the far right is the only board in this round-up based on that design. Everyone else used different coolers, core clock rates, and, in a few cases, memory clock rates.

Pricing and Availability

It's difficult to keep a sharp bead on graphics card prices; they move every day, it seems. The best we could do here was check availability the day before this story went live in the U.S. and take a quick snapshot of the prices.

Nobody seems to have the Gainward or Palit cards in stock, meaning they're really only here for exhibition, since you can't get your hands on them even if you wanted to. One of the other models currently sells for the same $400 Nvidia charges for its reference design, while the other three cost notably more. We're just happy that the GeForce GTX 670 launch wasn't a predominantly paper-oriented affair like GeForce GTX 680, with miniscule quantities trickling out from Nvidia's board partners. Many of these models appear to be readily available, in contrast.
