Gigabyte has an offering that you'll recognize, the release the product with their Ultra Durable technology that entails a 2oz copper PCB, Tier 1 memory, Japanese Solid Capacitors and ferrite core / metal chokes.
You'll notice a simplified cooling version of their WindForce series cooler. Quite a bit larger then the PCB but, as always it works out well, it was one of the most silent cards we have tested. Gigabyte calls this model cooler the WindForce anti-turbulence cooler, so much for the marketing ;)
You'll notice that the SKU is tagged under codename GV-N66TOC-2GD. The codename already reveals it, this is the factory overclocked model. It runs at a core clock frequency of 1033 MHz, has a boost frequency of 1110 MHz and the effective memory data rate (192-bit) is 6008 MHz.
Let's have a look at some photo's.
Alright, here we have the GeForce GTX 670 WindForce OC editon, the 2GB SKU (stock keeping unit) and its packaging. Overall a nice dark looking card some blue tones. Let's look at the card from several different viewpoints.
The card is equipped with the GK104 GPU that harbors the Kepler GPU architecture. You get the basics like the graphics card, PEG converter cables, manual and a demo and driver CD, though bundles will vary with AIB/AIC partners.
Gigabyte clocks this OC model card at a 1033 MHz baseclock, a 1110 MHz Boost/Turbo clock and the memory is running at 6008 MHz. This factory tweak positions the card at the performance level of a GeForce GTX 670. Mind you that the reference baseclock is 915 MHz, so that's quite a factory clock right there.
