Oh my...I think I know what my next GPU is smile.gif

Hopefully they hit stores soon, and won't be priced too high...and hopefully MSI actually makes a card that works out of box....not like Asus TOP cards

Part number

N670GTX PE 2GD5 915MHz Core (Boost Clock:980MHz)

N670GTX PE 2GD5/OC 1019MHz Core (Boost Clock:1079MHz)

until the voltages can be changed I don't see this one performing much better than the ones already on the market....that being said, it looks like a very well made card and I am sure will be quite nice cooling and performing. Wish it didn't have that blue on it but that's a small detail.

Curious to see reviews and prices for it. thumb.gif

yeah I feel you on the voltage part...I don't think the triple over voltage will do anything on the 600 series, since it is hardware locked...but who knows? maybe MSI has something up their sleeve

I'm a huge fan of the Twin Frozr coolers...that alone is probably worth it IMO

Nice looking card, think i might wait for this one to be available. Last few cards i had where all with Twin frozr coolers, really like them!

I love Twin Frozrs. I wonder what the base clock is. I'm returning my Asus 670 GTX Top since its so unstable at stock settings, will probably get this instead or maybe a 680.

the article doesn't mention it...totally forgot to put it in the OP!

There are two SKUs, and they are the following

N670GTX PE 2GD5 915MHz Core (Boost Clock:980MHz)

N670GTX PE 2GD5/OC 1019MHz Core (Boost Clock:1079MHz)

So it looks like MSI is doing the same thing as Asus...both feature the same cooler & PCB...but one comes higher clocked than the other. It might be a binned GPU on the OC version

I hope the OC version doesn't come broken out of the box...

They reduced fan size even more, at least from the looks of it? Not sure how I feel about it, I had GTX560 448 with Twin Frozr III and while it was really cool, it also was extremely loud. Now I have Asus GTX670 TOP and it's inaudible at the same temps what my Twin Frozr III had. I think MSI Twin Frozr cooling is a bit overrated tongue.gif

I'm hesitant about the Twin Frozr because of the noise, personally. I know it's a damn good PCB, but it's never been among the more silent cards. It's still interesting though that even though it's among the most customized cards, its clock isn't as high as the ASUS TOP. It almost seems like ASUS pushed the GPU too much, and that the 670 isn't able to reliably get 1058MHz.

Right now, I must say that I'm considering cancelling my ASUS TOP order and getting a normal non-top ASUS. If the binning isn't good enough, the normal one seems like a much better choice as it's still the same card. Any extra overclocking is then only an added benefit. I guess what I could also do is still get the TOP, hope for a good GPU, and lower the clock if needed until it works. I paid basically the same price as the non-top version because I pre-ordered the thing.

i think it's still good to do this way. You will much more in control where to overclock your card, instead of psychologically down clocking it to see the results. I am quite happy with my Non-top very silent and decently cool card.

I'm very happy with my perfectly stable TOP card wink.gif
