    Gigabyte Technology will soon be adding to its Kepler line-up a new GeForce GTX 670 model, one named GV-N670WF3-2GD which makes use of a WindForce fansink with "Triangle Cool" technology. Pictured below, Gigabyte's card has a blue PCB, an Ultra Durable VGA design, 1344 CUDA Cores, base/boost GPU clocks of 915/980 MHz, a 256-bit memory interface, 2 GB of GDDR5 VRAM @ 6008 MHz, and dual DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort outputs. No word on pricing.

    Soo... what's the differance between this one and the standard GTX670 WF3? is it just a stock clock compered to an OC edition or what?

    Yap, seems so.

    Even on stock clocks this card is amazing, but the higher price when compared to HD 7950 B, is the bad thing.
    In Europe the price tag is almost reaching 300 EUR, let´s see what this month brings to us.

    It has stock frequencies, probably the chips don't overclock that well (worse ASIC?), so this series is made of slightly worse binned 670 (with worse ASIC).
    I don't see other reason for releasing another 670 but with stock frequencies.

    I think I know what it will look like. It will probably be called a Gigabyte GeForce GTX 670 WindForce 5X SOC, have a black PCB and have a very similar or identical appearance to it's 680 equivalent or the GV-N680SO-2GD to be exact (http://uk.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4309); and from that we could predict it will be recognised as the GV-N670SO-2GD model assuming my guess is right.

    Edit: I didn't look at the description that well and from description it will be a value series Graphics Card of some sort.
