that's correct. fixed.
Exactly, at least someone else gets it. The red team's GPU supply goes out of stock just as quickly as the green team's lately, and it's not for being more popular. Saying Nvidia has poor yields is like the proverbial pot calling the kettle black. It's all relative to how the comp is doing, like I keep saying over and over and over.
Yea man I've been watching the Gigabyte come in and out of stock on Amazon. I even called Asus USA pre-sales, no ETA info available. Looks like a killer card. Thanks Asus for dual slot!! It's about time..
W1zz, is the card out yet? Can't find it on Amazon.com
Are the fans 92mm or 100mm ?
Did you notice this during the review process?
still not out !?!?!?!?!
I don't see how anything 670/7870 or lower isn't silent. If asus could do it why cant the rest of them.
It's not that they can't, it's that some choose to go for lower temps in the non ref cooler cards, while others go for average temps but lower noise (ave among the non ref coolers). You add to that various price points that they settle on and it's easy to see why it's one of the big Nvidia partners that gets a fair number of top bin chips from the GPU and VRAM suppliers that is able and willing to put in the R&D and part spec that yields both pretty good temps and ultra low noise. Even the type of fan they spec on these cards makes a big difference on noise levels. What's strange is EVGA is one of the biggest Nvidia partners, but you never see them make non ref air cooled cards. The closest they've come to it is using the 680 ref cooler on some of the 670s.
bah.. im getting impatient here.. why is it for sale in UK but not US?
ugh, i wish i bought the gigabyte windforce for $399 shipped 12 days ago >_< now i am stuck waiting on this asus that will probably come out over $420.
Oddly enough the ASUS has been shipped to both Aus and Can, but still not avail in the US. I still think it's going to be the more consistent in performance between it and the Giga though. Some of the Gigas aren't OCing very well, and some even suffering from freezes and crashes.
This concurs with that I was told by a guy whom has owned a PC shop over 20 years, used to do product reviews, and sat in on a few Nvidia staff meetings. He said ASUS and EVGA get top binning selection on chips, but with Giga it's hit and miss.
I just got one ...
ASUS GTX670-DC2T-2GD5 GeForce GTX 670 2GB 256-bit ...
I just got all happy when I saw that on Newegg. To bad I don't have a new build ready for one.
installed mine just 20 mins ago and so far I'm loving it
silly newegg gave me two day shipping ... so some how in there mind that works out to be ... Tuesday of next week when it was shipped out yesterday ??? what the heck!
Great review W1zzard! Made me buy one and i thought ill sit out this generation...
Do GTX670-DC2-2GD5 and GTX670-DC2T-2GD5 sharing the same PCB?
Asking because EK will make waterblock for ASUS GTX 670 DCII (GTX670-DC2-2GD5) and I'm thinking of use it on TOP version...
Should be the exact same card just one has a higher OC out of the box, which 90% of the Non "Top" will OC just as high.
ordered mine on the 30th, i had used 3 day shipping from newegg but they are saying itll be here on tuesday which is the 5th... should i call them and get my money back for the shipping?
well if you paid for something and it is not happening I would say heck yes!
But remember if it is a National Holiday and stuff you have to account that in as well.
And some times it comes faster then the estimation of time.
I'd wait. It's only a couple of days. But then I'm accustomed to waiting..
I have been looking at the ASUS TOP and have noticed its getting some bad reviews, people are saying that it won't work out of the box and they get BSOD/RSOD, I was wondering W1zz do you think that the backplate could be shorting out cards?
Mine works just fine stock. It overclocks itself to 1293MHz at 1.1750v with 86%-95% TDP. I haven't done any benches, but I have played Diablo3 and SC2 for hours on end without single crash.
I would hope D3 and SC2 dont crash it hahaha
It is a wonderful card for sure! Out of the box it is and has been rock solid on my side as well. I would not say that it is a good card ... but it is a great card!
Well... Seems like i am not doing sli next upgrade one single strong card it is
