Seven GeForce GTX 670 Cards, Benchmarked And Reviewed

Galaxy 67NPH6DV6KXZ

Could this card be the one most explicitly designed for overclocking? Its eight- and six-pin power connectors would seem to suggest so, as would the highest price tag (tied with Zotac's card) in today's story.

However, Galaxy went with fairly mid-range stock clocks of 1006 MHz on the core with a 1085 MHz GPU Boost rating, and 1502 MHz GDDR5 memory.

Galaxy does employ the GeForce GTX 680's PCB, which should help with cooling.

The card is surprisingly lightweight and visually appealing, equipped with a mix of thin aluminum and plastic shrouds. Its pulsating model designation is a matter of individual taste, but may catch eyes in a darkened room. Care is taken to route all heat pipes to the top of the card, which should reduce the amount of thermal energy radiated back toward the motherboard.

    Typo on conclusion. "not to loud on loud." That would be the Gigabyte card.

    On the Gigabyte card's page:

    During the course of our testing, we effortlessly set this card to run at 1059 MHz, so we're not sure why Gigabyte held back so much. During testing, we overclocked this card to 1059 MHz quite easily, so we are somewhat surprised by the conservative factory overclock.

    This seems to be saying the same thing twice. Error, or am I missing something?

    The roundup was published in German on May 22, 2012:

    Sorry, but at this time (and 4 weeks later too) MSI was unable to deliver one of this cards. When MSI starts so late with this cards, then this is not our fault. ;)

    Also, the second chart on the 'Sound Level and Temperature: Overclocked' page is missing the 'Mhz' label on the speed for the Palit card. It should read '1059 Mhz', while it reads only '1059'.

    I'd like to see one for the 680s too, in which the 680 classified and lightning will be present, including others. :D
