On the final Dirt 3 graph, the 690 results are red instead of the 670 one's, but other than that, great review. I'm liking the extensive test :)

Nice card, but were still in the world of 'slightly optimised' DX9 console ports, with the odd bit of DX11 tacked on, so until that changes, i wont pay more than £150 for a Gfx card these days.

Depends what games you're a fan of fella. Project CARS and BF3 push them hard enough, that's for sure.

also the performance, value and features read performance, features and features.

a good review and a good card, I just need to fight temptation....

And that's the final nail in the coffin for GTX 580 retail sales.

I want, so much.

This much!

Great review of a fantastic card - just wish prices were lower and more reflective of the last generation (ie: sub £280). I'm going to wait for the 680 to take a price drop and then buy, the 670 is toting but arguably not an upgrade from a 580 bar thermals and power.

7970 prices will hopefully drop.. again

Clearly we need to start advertising pay-day loans around big GPU and CPU launches!

Got an EVGA 2gb SC (superclocked) for ~320£ over here in Denmark, lucky I did, prices are going up!

Looking at the dinky little 7" card, I'm hopeful for some relatively low cost GPU blocks for the 670.

Very nice performance and thermals, but a card with a noisey fan for over £300? No thanks!

We start doing that and I'm off ;)

I'm waiting to see if they can do a cooler that doesn't extends the pcb size. I'd really like to see a GTX670 having the length of a mITX motherboard (mITX being 170mm and bare 670 pcb being 175mm). With an mSATA SSD and the PSU under the mobo, you have a nice and compact gaming cube :D

Come on nVidea release something that hits the £200 mark otherwise ill buy a 7850! Anyone know when we can expect to see something at this price point?

Doh! This makes the £600 I spent on 580 SLI look stupid :(

Heya,

The prices listed are wrong. The US Price (ex tax) for the 680 GTX is $499 - why is it also $499 for the 670 GTX? The card is listed for $399.

Looks like a very solid purchase for anyone with a 4x0 older right now I think.

I still find it weird to see 6-series used in reference to the 670/680 family. When someone says 6-series I still think of the 6800 Ultra and 6600GT.

dont think nvidia will release a £200 graphics card this time around

660 will probably retail Around £220-250

they can then keep the 570 at its current £200 price

560 ti around £150

both have been mensioned by nvidia when talking about the new cards seems like only the 580 is going end of line any time soon

what's funny to me is nvidia been dropping the ball on image quality.. not to mention just basic optimization.. take the recent guildwars 2 beta for example, not even going to bring up the release of rage and skyrim- that will just bring out the nvidia goblins in force.. even though posted videos and screens that proved what they were seeing was pure ass due to drivers

anyways in the beta, amd users could play just fine with 2 year old cards.. the 680s were getting <20 fps.. and they cried until anet told them it was cpu capped (which was telling them, nvidia never bothered to optimize the game)

the game looked absolutely beautiful on my rig.. but then you listen to a guy with nvidia cards, they go as far as saying the game was ugly xD rage came back to mind.. and skyrim on release came to mind.. nvidia users are getting huangs ass to their face and blaming it on the devs.. and since there is so many of them- it gets taken as truth when they might as well have huangs buttcheecks clintch up around their ears..

then they have twimtbp games.. and folding- which is well the same thing :D then someone like me.. running pyrit on both nvidia and amd, see that nvidia is smoke and mirrors.. great marketing but on the hardware end- amd offers much better performance for the money.. but it's always drown out by huang swinging from chandeliers and his twimtbp programs

running nvidia since 2008, I actually thought having all these problems at a games launch was normal.. I just run a old driver nowdays on a overclocked 6970 and it runs everything.. not to mention is 3x faster in gpugpu than a 580 running a dictionary attack (a open source client which was optimized for both)

I can run multiple monitors too.. it's just so much better, and you never really hear them bragging it up.. they should :D

Oooohh! What a nice and small card! Bravo Nvidia!

Is it time to start wishing for a a pair of decently-cooled single-slot GTX660 in SLI? By the looks of the 600 series so far, it's doable.

I can't believe it performs so well?

Makes me think BMW! Will be interesting to see what watercooling blocks are like considering the reference design has half the ram on the other side of the board. They should have intergrated the ram cooling into the fan bracket, with fins before and after the GPU.

Looking forward to the 660, my 460 is getting a little long in the tooth.
Though I hope it's as affordable as my 460 was..
