    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.

    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.

    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!

    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

    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.
