*** UPDATE ***

So far we can say this about boost clocks for the Gigabyte 570 OC;

Mine: adds 220 clock at any frequency
_jokes_: adds 220 clock at any frequency
Oridin: adds 170 clock at any frequency
rdmx: adds 170 clock at any frequency

My proof;
stock: 980 / 1201

437

_jokes_ proof:
+100: 1080 / 1301

375

Oridin / my proof;
Oridin: +138: 1118 / 1289
Me: +138: 1118 / 1340

416

rdmx proof; (can you verify rdmx?)
+180 1161(suspected) / 1331

429

So it seems that so far there are two lotteries when buying a GTX 670 OC;
* boost clock adds 220 or 170
* max clock varies
It's possible they're correlated but I'm leaning towards not after talking to Oridin. rdmx can pass a test at +180, but I don't think Oridin has.

Also, it seems like my core clock becomes more stable as I raise memory clock, to a point. Clocking core gives worst results when memory is left at zero OC, which is why I think _jokes_ settled at +120: 1100 / 1320 to benchmark games (his screenshots never raise mem clock).
If you're reading this buddy, try again with memory at +550

Perhaps there is some way of identifying whether or not it's a 220 boost or 170 boost by PCB stickers?
In any case, I'm dying to know, does a 120 boost clock exist? what about a 270 boost clock?

PS: I firgured out what's going on in that 1400 clock screenshot from _jokes_. I believe it's an error and he didn't clear GPU-z log after running a +200 test and crashing.

*** /UPDATE ***

I picked up one of these today for $525 AUD.
Someone said it might be useful to make a thread here.

If you have any questions, etc, I'm happy to answer. Here is what I've done so far;

http://3dmark.com/3dm11/3353787;jsessionid=1c5mdgwq1bws9cfb09i2khsuv
P9252 3DMarks

This is at out of the box settings. I have tried to OC further using gigabytes easyboost software, but any increase to core speed results in a revert back to 705 when I click apply. I think it's not updated for this model yet?

Can we get a GPU-Z screenshot and validation please.

Try using EVGA's Precision. Should allow for easier overclocking. Also, please post a GPU-z validation so we can see what the stock clocks for your factory overclocked card are. Thanks!

Hey, congrats on your new GTX 670!

Anyways, that is a very nice 3D Mark 11 Professional Score!

Isn't that score higher than a GTX 680 at stock clocks?!

The vendor you bought it from definitely messed up somewhere lol...

The release date says May 10th, 2012!!

Anyways, that is a nice factory overclock!

I'm confused. How does a GTX 670 with 1 SM disabled and stock clocks of 980/1059 Boost beat a reference GTX 680 (reference clocks=1006/1059) by 440 points in 3DMark11 GPU score? I just set my 680 to stock clocks and ran 3DMark11, and this is what I got:

i dont know what else you want?? he has pictures of the box, of it in his rig, and GPU-Z...

do u want him to mail it to you?

Forget the P mark. The graphics score is 9600 which is just over or around what a stock 680 should be getting and what my 470's yield both at 700MHz.

And that's only a factory overclock.
Get this stuff while it's available is all I can say. Good god.

Click the validation tab then submit validation on that tab.

Just covering all the bases, that would be nice though!

This is simply amazing.

There is no point of keeping my GTX 690 anymore after seeing this.

GTX 670 sli is the way to go!

My 680 only gets 9150 ish graphics score @ stock clocks.

The clocks on the Gigabyte OC 670 are 980/1059 boost while the reference Nvidia clocks for a 680 are 1006/1059.

So why is the 670 outscoring a 680 by 400+ points in the 3DMark11 GPU score?

I know nothing about 3d mark, but it says your cpu clock is at 1.6ghz. Your physx score is far higher than his, could that 1.6 be the reason your gpu score is lower?

he probably has power saving enabled on the processor which makes it down clock to 1600Mhz when not in use (when 3dmark takes its info most likely)
