As you may have learned from our recent review, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 670 is far more attractive than the top-end GeForce GTX 680 in terms of the price/performance ratio. The difference in speed between these two graphics cards is small and can be easily eliminated through overclocking whereas the GTX 670 is as much as 20% cheaper, and also smaller and more economical. Therefore, it is not surprising that all graphics card makers that turn out Nvidia-based products have announced their own GeForce GTX 670s, including versions with original coolers, pre-overclocked frequencies and even custom PCBs. We’ll take a look at three such products in this review. They come from Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd., Palit Microsystems Ltd., and Zotac International (MCO) Ltd.
