The GeForce GTX 670 review galore has started. In this review we'll look at a very nice offering from Palit, a factory overclocked, custom cooled, custom designed PCB GeForce GTX 670. This product has all factors right.
The GeForce GTX 670 is the little brother of the GTX 680 and comes, well how to put it ... slightly castrated. NVIDIA disabled a couple of shader processors and designed a more cost effective and smaller PCB.
The card itself is still quite beefy in terms of performance though, which you'll understand once we sift through the specifications. The GK104 GPU based graphics card has one SM/SMX cluster disabled. This gives the GK104 GPU 1344 CUDA cores to work with, with in total 112 texture and 32 raster operating units.

The graphics card also has slightly slower clock frequencies than big poppa GTX 680, with a reference baseclock speed of 915 MHz. However the GTX 670 comes with a Boost clock which is set at 980 MHz -- not far off from the GTX 680 at all.
Palit however released the JetStream version which comes pre-overclocked at 1006 MHz on the baseclock and an impressive 1084 MHz on the boost clock. More interestingly, the boost clock during our test sessions was actually closer to 1200 MHz most of the time (!).
To give the card enough framebuffer to work with, the cards are equipped with 2048 GDDR5 on a 256-bits wide bus. Palit clocks this memory at 6108 MHz (6008 = reference clock).
With a slightly increased TDP at roughly 180 Watts the card won't draw too much power either. With that said you have the more important variables in your mindset, have a peek at the product after which we dive right into the review, next page please.
