W1zzard f*cking DELIVERED!
Very nice card... I'd just feel weird spending $400 bucks on a card so small.
Jesus, that card is so much win!
Run that little guy on a small water loop in a Mini ITX case would be sweet!
Is it bad that I want two?
Another killer GTX670 from ASUS, no surprise there!
Again a great review for one hell of a little big card.
I do too, only if theres an ITX case that had the ability to run 2 cards haha.
I see what you did there..........
LOL, isn't that what she said?
half the size nearly but costs more ?
Wow, ASUS managed to get the card smaller, quieter, and cooler?
Nice review W1z
That is a sweet (powerful) little GPU
haha i can agree with that, but for small size card, that kicks ass just like the big once i think it's a fine price and yet an awesome review by W1zzard
I go back home, open TPU and THERE IT GOES, the review is here!!! I almost can't believe it! Congratulations TPU-team!
One of the most awesome cards I have ever seen.
The direct power gimmick is a turn off.
but it's shiny!
I don't see any big claims about it in ASUS marketing, what offends you? How do you feel about "Military Class" ? Which is the exact same marketing concept
I've been thinking about that. What makes something "Military Class", if anything? Components, components assembly or what?
it doesn't exist. it's a marketing invention like "gives you wings". msi sometimes references some certification which has no serious requirements
Well in MSI's case the gpu reactor/gimmick actually works/helps for OC in my findings.
With ASUS Direct power to a normal user they would think hey this must be like gpu reactor.
They might not look under it to see its nothing more than shiny copper.
That's my only issue really.
show me your data for gpu reactor please
Are any of these important to an end user?
look up the details for those tests, they are all nothing special .. if your product fails those, people will RMA it all the time
storage! not even operating.. maybe the ice cream vendor down the street fails that.
operating is only 55°C
Heh I know. The more interesting ones, like "explosive environment" and such are much more gamer-friendly.
Don't get me wrong, I agree with you. I also realize that perhaps choosing something from the present, not 2008, might be a bit better chosen. They've simply picked a bunch of tests any product would pass, it seems, really, but have not passed ALL.
Now THAT would be worth mentioning. Products that can really withstand a hostile environment. Most can't even handle dust.
Ahh ok. What I figured. Would be kinda cool if someone actullay made a motherboard or whatever that actually had military standard.
Anyway. I never knew the 670's were so damnable tiny. I have never really looked at them until this moment, because I assumed they would have to pull out some fancy engineering feats for it to be squashed up like that. And then it just looks like that. Sort of an antiklimax.
Good show. Well played.
expect to pay 10-20k for that if it comes with the right certification paperwork, much much more if you want emp hardened so you can still play crysis while the nukes go off around you
