Here it is from PCinlife:
and the PCB:
jesus the card is so small!
What about 2560x1600
so at $399 this will kill the hd7950 as long as those are accurate.
Yay another price drop on the 7000 series
... Or so I hope at least.
So when is Nvidia going to come out with their not-sucks-at-computing GPU?
well, the nVidia card will be slower, but will consume less power also..
but HD7950 will be the card in tha trange.. well, just need some price drop, I want an HD7950 at 340$
if its real then I don't know how nvidia could make such a tiny fast card, AMD is gonna need some help . . . . . .
Wow, a GTX 670 crammed on a PCB that's practically the size of a GT 440?
670 (p)review @ TT : http://www.tweaktown.com/articles/4...2gb_video_card_performance_preview/index.html
Crazy little GAMING card
saw it as well, its literally "Giant Killing" for video cards lol
anyone seen this at Tweaktown?
NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 670 2GB Video Card Performance Preview (Tweaktown.com)
yeah, 2 posts up lol
Tweaktown doesnt use BF3 which is puzzling since it is one of the most popular games
Right, but you get the picture. Since NV cards do better with BF3 I expect the GTX670 to be even slightly better than the 7970.
Sad day for AMD when a midrange card is taking on your flagship
looks like nvidia is back in the game
I wouldn't call it midrange at $400, that's still high end in my book.
the GK104 gpu in the GTX680/GTX670 was suppose to be mid-range(GTX660/650). GK110, which is schedualed for release in August, is what was orginally meant to be the next GTX680.
The board can be that small, but with that comes a small power circuit, which might mean the reference card won't overclock high (or at all).
As for performance...need more reviews.
Yeah, thanks to that, I think I can predict rebrands in the foreseeable future.
What gives you that idea ? Would Nvidia release a GK110 negating their 6xx series in less than 4 months, 2 months if your count the complete GK104 roll out. Thats business suicide.
Not saying there isnt a GK110 in the works but from a business stand point they will take a greater hit much like the Tegra 3 and halt of last gen GPU had an impact on their stock oddly enough when they recorded a profit. No-one wants to be holding their last gen inventory if it wont be selling in a 3-2 month window.
Here is a crazy thought. What if they are just using a single SKU for the entire 600 line this time around.
400 series flagship sku GF100
500 series flagship sku GF110
-560 Ti OEM
-560 TI 448
^ Looks like they were headed into consolidating a single SKU for the entire line as far back as 2 generations ago.
Maybe they just decided it was easier to concentrate on 1 chip design instead of 2 each go around. The GK110 rumors of being the big guy might of been a response to Sea Islands being shown last year on AMDs roadmaps. Nvidia might not have wanted to look empty handed to investors.
Just something to think about.
I knew that but due to AMD not raising the bar high enough it was repurposed to the high end price bracket. I don't know about anybody else but this whole round of new products feels like a big old money grab to me.
I haven't seen anything in my price range that makes me want to ditch my current card. $400-$500 for a graphics card is a lot of cheddar! If I could get a decent performance boost for around $300 I might have to reconsider.
That's a very interesting take on things. I think if they do have another card coming in a few months they will target the later seasons (late fall and Winter) in order to capitalize on holiday shoppers.
Your mistaken on the GPUs used in the different model cards. I didn't go back and check on the GTX400 cards, but according to TPU's review of the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores 1280 MB card, the OEM GTX560 Ti is a GK114 GPU. GF110 is used in the GTX560 Ti 448, GTX570, GTX580, and GTX590
I think/hope Nvidia will release GK110 as the GTX685.
Had a feeling, nvidia was going to gather it's resources and slap the bejebuss out of amd.. I think it just happened, with the 6 series.. I hope amd responds in kind.
I <3 price wars.. and I just paid 600 friggin bucks for a 680.. so yea.. I reeaallly <3 price wars..
