The GTX 470 with max OC can perform like a stock GTX 480/ GTX 570 or slightly better. Same story when comparing GTX 570 & 580.
But this GTX 670 can track the GTX 680 even with a very mild OC. According to more than one bench it appears the GTX 670 is faster cfc too.
Simply Nvidia didn't recognize that lowering the shaders only by 14% is not enough to warrant the gap they where hoping for.
It is either this or they want to get rid of the GTX 680, which is highly unlikely since this will affect the reputation of the company in the future.
The GTX 470/ 570 both have less ROPs, less memory width, less TMUs and of course less shaders than GTX 480/580.
This GTX 670 shares every other spec the GTX 680 has. excluding the shader count.

As per my mobo's specs; http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3911#sp
The second card operates in 8x when SLI is enabled.

So not sure if that is adversely affecting the results. I think it's only a limiting issue in ultra high resolutions?

Not sure why everyone is in disbelief that this overclocked version of a 670 beats a 680. The 5xx series was pretty much the same. I'm normally not excited about midrange cards, but this thing has me excited. I think I'm looking at my next gpu...even tho is will be a while until I can upgrade.

I managed to get my 680 to 1270 stable clocks , any higher and it starts artifacting with black patches. It's the 680 gigabyte OC model with 3x windforce. Power target only goes to max 111%. Max temps with the OC still 65 just like normal.
Is the OC safe if there's no artifacting/freezing ? As in can i use it 24/7? And am i in the safe-zone or even though if it's fine now it can start acting up later?
Also if by some weird event the card fries itself (with this mild stable OC) can i still get the warranty? I mean, most people say that oc-ing voids warranty but at the same time they say noone can tell if you ocd or not. So what's the deal?
Thanks!

Jfyi, my GIGABYTE GTX680 ref. overclocks to 1400MHz, but only in a few games. BF3 will black out and restart and crash. Stable OC is 1350, +600 on memory, Scored P10094 in 3DMark 11 Performance settings.

My best 3dMark11 run is in my sig. GPU score is 21466, Compared to the OP's 20027, that's pretty damn close. I'm not as upset as everyone seems to be though. I planned from the beginning on selling these for a non-reference with voltage control / higher max voltage. Depending on how close the Classified's come out relative to the 700-series, I'll probably be going with 2 of them. The Classified's can take their time coming out though, since I need some time to save up for the EVGA X79 mobo, a 2011 CPU, and EVbot smilingsmiley.gif

It been said multiple times. The 670 with max overclock is beating a lot of 680's with max overclock. THats not normal for any generation.

Yeah but this works both ways. That's my point. The GTX 680 is a great card. When it came out it was faster than non reference 7970's and cheaper. You pay a premium for being first to own them ref. or not. I bought mine without having any thoughts on OC'ing. Guess what? In about 10 months or so there will be a faster mid range card that costs less too. That's just the cycle. Same thing happens when you rush out and buy a brand new console.

I don't feel one bit discouraged about this wonder GTX670.
