EVGA was right on time for the GTX 670 launch with its Superclocked card, which comes overclocked to 967MHz and its memory at 1552MHz (6208MHz effectively). Note that the reference clocks are 915/1502MHz GPU/memory. Higher clocks of course mean better performance but overclocked or not – the GTX 670 is a great bang for the buck. Furthermore, the card allows for using up to four displays simultaneously.
Suggested pricing for the reference design is €329 EX VAT or $399 USD. In return, you get a graphics card that will support your 2560x1600 habit.
Compared to the GTX 570, you can expect about 40 percent better performance. The GTX 470 is 1.5-2 times slower than the GTX 670. It’s not looking rosy for AMD as the GTX 670 manages to challenge even the HD 7970 occasionally.
EVGA GTX 670 Superclocked is based on the reference design, with the exception of higher clocks and cooler makeup. The cooler is quiet in idle mode and quiet enough during gaming. You will hear it occasionally but it’s not too loud. We can say the same about the thermals as well.
We’ve seen that many partners are ready with their factory overclocked GTX 670 graphics cards and EVGA sure joined in on the fun. The company’s offer currently lists the following GTX 670s:
EVGA GeForce GTX 670 2GB: $399.99
EVGA GeForce GTX 670 2GB Superclocked: $419.99
EVGA GeForce GTX 670 4GB: $469.99
EVGA GeForce GTX 670 4GB Superclocked: $489.99
As you can see, our today’s card is priced about $20 higher than the reference version. The added price goes on the factory overclock, makeover and the wide exhaust bracket that improves cooling. The card is backed by a 3 year Limited warranty with an option to pay for an extension to 5 or 10 years. All in all, the $20 price difference is a small price to pay for a card that promises to become many a gamer’s ally.
