I hate Nvidia and their supply and demand game ...it is obvious that they are just holding off the cards to inflate the prices...I'm going with AMD ....because I'm tired of waiting ...I'm not going to wait anymore ..

The list of games is very unfair to AMD cards. Techpowerup's review, which featured a much longer list of games, had the Radeon HD 7970 faster than the GTX 670 at all resolutions 1080p and higher.

Nvidia has had a big lead in Dirt 3 and WoW for a very long time. This skews the results.

The GTX 670 is a fantastic card, don't get me wrong. Just pointing out that it's being slightly overrated here.

Excellent review. I was waiting for this card to hit. Only a 4.5% difference between a 680 for almost 100 less? Yes please!

I am not trying to sound bad, but AMD might have a real problem on their hands with this card as it is priced very competitively for what you get. Especially since it competes with AMD's flagship that's more expensive.

Wait ... will we see any stock this year ... or are these going to be as rare as the 680 / 690 / 6xx ??

The 6 series NVidia cards ... the ghost cards.

All hype ... no stock.

Nvidia are pumping out the reviews and advertorials ... mostly the latter I see across the web.

This rollut must be costing them a fortune.

I hope it's getting them sales in the old stock ... thats the point ... isn't it??

Wasn't this card supposed to compete with the 7870 and 7950 lol? It's ripping both of them to shreds and manaing to hold its own against the 7970 in most cases....... AMD has got a serious problem on their hands now, because this thing looks like the next 8800gt or gtx 460

[citation][nom]borden5[/nom]amd price reduce 2.0 xD[/citation]
why would they? all they'd have to do is boost up the stock clocks on 7950 and 7970 like what Nvidia did. People forget the monster overclocking headroom of the 7xxx cards

Does that mean that the 670Ti (if they actually release one) will be faster than GTX680? In any case, what I want to see is ~7870-7950 performance for the price of 7850.

Good review! Noticed a couple of confusing things though...not sure if it's the graphs that are wrong or the interpretations:

In most applications, that was good enough to land the overclocked EVGA card in between its already-tweaked stock clocks and a GeForce GTX 680. In a couple of others, the overclock yielded better frame rates than a stock GeForce GTX 680, even.
That chart shows it being between stock 670 and 680 in a couple applications, and ahead of the 680 in most.

Then from the DiRT 3 charts:

AMD and Nvidia trade blows again, as the GeForce GTX 670 shows best at 1680x1050, while the Radeon card is faster at 2560x1600.
The charts clearly show the 670 winning at all 3 resolutions.
