Gigabyte GTX 670 OC Version *HANDS ON* - Page 24

post #231 of 1506
This maybe the one time where waiting for the lower model card (680<670) actually pays off... or am I misreading the numbers?

Look at what version of windows is being used. Did the OP reinstall a 32bit version of windows after doing the 3dmark on a 64bit...
289

uuh they both say 64bit.

Guys its like 7950. A heavy overclock 7950 in unigine easily match a 7970 with the same clocks. Dont take 3dmark result so seriously. Lets see some game performance. If then gtx670 is at the same level as 680 then nvidia boycottage their own products :/

depression is kicking in... i paid $810AUD for my gigabyte 7970OC when it first came out and these are my results @ 1280/1580 http://3dmark.com/3dm11/3356223 luckily i get half back on tax but still... might sell and get a 670 if it's more power efficient and can run games at same fps as my 7970 OC'd

Massive amount of popcorn will be comsumed while reading this thread! I for one will be following this thread closely, while deciding on whether to buy the GTX 690 or not. confused.gif

Wonder what's the power requirement for 3 in SLI, when one requires 550W.

I expect the gtx 670 will be a fraction more powerful than people who have not considered this thread expect, and a fraction less powerful than these 3dmark scores 'might' indicate real world gaming performance to be. My guess is that it will be a little closer to a gtx 680 than the 470>480, 570>580. However a gtx 680 will have a 20-8fps lead @ 1920x1080-2560x1600 clock-to-clock. And a 8-6 pin pre-overclocked 680 will have the same aforementioned lead over a -same pin- pre overclocked 670. For people running 2560x1440/1600 monitors, a single gtx 680 overclocked might have enough juice to sustain 60fps in the games that matter with fxaa. Whereas the gtx 670 might come a little short.

That would lead me to believe that the 670's small gains vs the 47x, 57x - will keep it competitive and make it attractive to budget enthusiats. And I strongly doubt the gtx 680's will be invalidated in any way.

It just won't quite have the lead the 580 had over the 570.

The lower price point of the 670 would also make a ~800 sli build possible - and might just make it a viable option for the enthusiasts who can't quite make the 1k mark. Or can't justify it, or live in australia (like me) and have to factor in postage/tax costs to get a relative bargain vs their quite plainly 'unfair' pricing. Either way.

Probably much better VRMs.

I feel like i've just bought a dinosaur.
Spent 8 months saving and 6 weeks trying to buy my GTX 680.
To make matters worse I spent an additional £50 to order it directly from EVGA as I was sick of waiting and broken promises from retailers.

I've always gone with ATI/AMD cards so this is not a good start to my relationship with Nvidia tongue.gif
I wonder if EVGA are going to offer a Step-down program...

I think this is how the PCB is supposed to be. The mini PCB that people were linking made no sense in the first place. The white-out picture that Tweak Town posted also showed a card as long as this one so we should expect this length.

Is PCB elongation common?
