    Considering W1zz reviews where the gtx 680 is 7% "ahead" of the hd 7970, i don't see how this card would outperform the 7970, not by any strech of my imagination. Wow, far margin...

    +100


    EDIT: after checking tweaktown preview, seing gtx 670 like 1-2% behind the gtx 680 and 100 bucks cheaper, poor gtx 680, who would buy it? 100 bucks less for 2% less perf? COUNT ME IN FOR A GTX 670!

    Wow.
    This thing has the appearances of a low-end card yet apparently it outperforms the competitor's high-end. Die size is somewhere around at 330mm², 10% smaller that of Tahiti at 365mm².

    nV will be getting good profit out of these.

    It will be funny to see such a tiny card compete, nice margins on this puppy too.

    I really, really hope the vrm on these cards can stand upto long term use and dont start become this cards achilles heel.

    Looks like I've finally found something groundbreaking and worthy of replacing my awesome gtx460's, shame they look like they have the double stacked dvi's though, still will look so sweet in sli with waterblocks

    looks like they'll make 1gb variants too for an even more cost effective choice! I'd get the 2gb for sure, but this card sure looks like it has the potential to be a winner! lets see in 2 days :)
