And overclocks much better. Not sure if you can oc the 670 at all, with those extreme PCB temps that other review was showing (IF accurate). Also, I think the voltages are still locked.

my gigabyte oc gtx 670 overclocks to 1302 boost clock and bests my radeon 7970 maxed oc at 1250mhz core by over 200 3d marks without even getting warm , not to mention battlefield 3 runs alot better on the gtx 670 for me at stock.

Hopefully, unlike the 550 Ti, this isn't priced like garbage. The 550 Ti was easily the worst card from Nvidia's last generation at launch, or at least out of the ones that received any sizable review coverage.

It certainly LOOKS like the heir to the 550Ti. Too bad its priced more like the 570....

Not do derail this thread, but you're entirely wrong in saying that the 670 is faster than the 7970. It can barely OC too, besides the gigabyte windforce versions with the 680 pcb.

A 670 can easily OC upto a 680, and a 680 is about 10%-20% faster than a 7970. So a 670 in turn can be upto 20% faster than a 7970.

You're just making up numbers.

And that is only due to higher stock clocks. The 7970 is definitely faster than the 670...

... with nearly 9% higher clock speeds, not even counting boost clocks.

Sure, there are some games in which GK104 pretty much demolishes Tahiti (Portal 2 is a great example), but aggregate performance is the same clock for clock.
