Zotac GTX 670 fan club

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi guys I recently joined and realised there wasn’t a lot of information online about the awesome new Zotac GTX 670 cards released between June – August 2012 so I thought I’d start this thread.

First of all, congratulations! You have bought one of the best GTX 670 cards money can buy according to TechRadar and TomsHardware and of course, myself=] The cards are capable of extreme overclocking thanks to the new GTX 670 Kepler architecture and unlockable voltage through updating the GPU BIOS.

At time of writing this there appears to be four different editions of this card as follows:
  1. ZOTAC GTX 670 2GB
    - ZT-60301-10P
  2. ZOTAC GTX 670 2GB AMP! Edition
    - ZT-60302-10P
  3. ZOTAC GTX 670 4GB
    - ZT-60303-10P
  4. ZOTAC GTX 670 2GB
    - ZT-60304-10P

The main differences is that the #1 and #4 are practically the same basic cards with the newer #4 card re-released as a version with a default higher clock (by 39Mhz) and boost clock (by 53Mhz) to the older #1 card. The #3 card is the only 4GB version as opposed to 2GB and has a clock and boost clock speed halfway between the #1 and #4 cards. The #2 card is the supped up version of the #1 card and has 183Mhz higher base clock and 196Mhz boost clock. Finally it is worth noting that all cards support 3-way SLI except the #2 card which supports only 2-way SLI but this card does have a 6608Mhz memory clock as opposed to 6008Mhz for the other 3 cards.

You can compare the four cards in more detail on the Zotac website using this link.

Personally I choose the #3 card because I really wanted 4 GB of video memory for Battlefield 3 and for any future games that may require this over the next few years (as I did not intend upgrading for a few years now). I believe this decision was correct because for my 1920x1200 resolution running BF3 on ultra-settings Precision X OSD states that on large maps my GPU is using > 2GB video memory. I have also overclocked the 4GB card so its actually running faster than the AMP! Edition anyway at base clock 1104Mhz, boost clock 1182Mhz and memory at 7208Mhz! (boosting my BF3 FPS from an average of 60 to 70 FPS)

Please use this thread to discuss useful information and benchmarks for Zotac GTX 670 cards ONLY and not to start a flame war between different brands of cards =]

KTHXBYE

My results:

CPU: i7 3770k on a Gigabyte UD5H Mobo (3.5GHz and 16GB RAM at 1333MHz)
Card Model: Zotac GTX 670 4GB
Boost Clock: 1182
Max Boost: 1280 (Kepler Boost of 105)
Memory Clock: 1802Mhz (In GPU-z. Dont know what this equates to can anybody tell me?)
Power Target: 132% (Slider)
Voltage: 1.175 (Slider)

BF 3
For those who are interested this generates 60 - 100 FPS (average of about 70 - 75) on CQ maps with Extreme video settings @ 1920x1200

EDIT: Following some stability issues I’ve wound down the base and boost clock 10Mhz and after 2 nights of BF3 this seems stable

Hi! I also picked up the Zotac GTX 670 4GB version, but CPU-Z only shows 2GB. Did you get the same results? If not, any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks in advance!
