    unless AMD drops the price of the 7950, its doomed, and the 7970 price has to drop now,

    I don't know how nvidia pulled this off with such a small card

    Holy crap. That's a perfect 10.

    AMD needs to start slashing prices. And I need to get a GTX670....now to just pick one (this one looks like a damn solid option...)

    Even GTX 680 is in trouble now. If not for the fact that there's probably enough people who simply want the best (even if only by 5%) and are willing to pay the price, I don't see how the GTX680 at $500 can stay relevant.

    This cards looks even better than GTX680, less than 10% slower, much cheaper, better perf/watt...

    It is far from GTX690's perf/watt tho, which I didn't see coming and remains a mistery how a dual GPU card can be the absolute most efficient card.

    Now come on NV please release that GTX 660 or whatever is called the card with 2 SMX disabled. Just imagine, another $100 cut and another "insignificant" 8% performance drop. That's the card I'd think of buying and we know that's the card that GK104 was supposed to be anyway.

    Wow, a 10.0. This must be one seriously kick-ass card. I sure am glad I held off on getting a 680 to replace my 580.

    The Asus GTX 560Ti DUII is the best GPU I've ever bought! and now this 670 version just looks too good to be true! I'm certainly going to buy this card next or wait and see how the 660 version will compare!

    The price is so attractive!! gosh!

    So around $540 in Australia vs $770 for the 680. not bad at all, 3 for the price of a 690!

    Two questions

    1. Max power draw is a 160ish watts. So this could run on a 500w power supply?
    2. To enable Nvidia surround will any Displayport adapter do? Or does it have to be a certain one?

    If yes to both of these questions I may have one of these on the weekend..

    The performance is nice and all but the killer is the sound level. OMG.

    And now I just noticed it's only 2 slots... Mind = blown.

    Take care of yourself first, we can wait. :laugh: No we can't. :laugh:

    That surprised me the most on this card, for sure. It's better than the GTX 680 DCU II, which is almost the same except it's a 3 slot cooler. Black magic must be involved here.

    even 400w might be fine

    if i remember correctly you can use any combination of outputs with passive dp adapters on kepler. i'd have to double check whether you need active or passive adapters. there is a cheap sapphire mini dp single link adapter that i used for my testing

    Any idea on availability in the US, W1zzard :)? Might we see these (Asus DC II and/or TOP) on amazon/newegg today or is it going to be a week or so?
