Seven GeForce GTX 670 Cards, Benchmarked And Reviewed

Palit GTX 670 JetStream

Like Palit's GeForce GTX 680, the company's GTX 670 JetStream is a three-slot card with a massive cooler. Oddly enough, the company mounts that large thermal solution on Nvidia's reference GeForce GTX 670 PCB.

Not surprisingly, then, you get the same four display outputs and twin six-pin auxiliary power connectors. Palit even employs the same conservative 1006 MHz base and 1085 MHz GPU Boost core clock ratings as Galaxy's dual-slot card. As with Gainward, though, Palit does push its memory modules up to 1527 MHz for a little bit of extra bandwidth.

With all of its other specifications identical to Gainward, neither board is available in the U.S. yet, unfortunately, making Palit's appearance largely a performance exhibition.

This relatively heavy card is supported by a massive frame, making it fairly rigid. However, it could cause your motherboard to flex. If your chassis includes a graphics card support bracket, this model might warrant its use.

    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
