A little later this week, NVIDIA will launch its third SKU based on the GK104 silicon, targeting key performance-segment price points, the GeForce GTX 670. It is possible that NVIDIA will allow AIC partners to come up with custom-designs from day one. One such designs is Galaxy's, which needs no more than one expansion slot in your system. Galaxy's single-slot GeForce GTX 670 appears to use an NVIDIA reference-design PCB, albeit in its signature shade of blue. One could tell so, with the VRM area appeared to be located towards the front, and the PCB appearing to be cutting off at two-thirds the length of the card (where the PCIe power connectors are located).

The extra length of the card is productively used to position a lateral-flow fan. Since there is no PCB, the fan compartment is more roomy, which could mean a bigger fan, with the possibility of intakes on the reverse side of the card. This could result is a slower, quieter cooler. The fan guides air through an aluminum channel stack, with some of the channels being made of copper. It's likely that Galaxy is using a vapor-chamber plate to transfer heat from key components over to the air channels. The portion of the heatsink over the VRM MOSFETs has cylindrical structures, which reminds us of Radeon HD 4850 VRM area.



Overall, Galaxy's new cooling solution appears to be a slight variation of the one found on its single-slot GeForce GTX 680. The card draws power from two 6-pin PCIe power connectors. Display outputs include one each of dual-link DVI, HDMI, and DisplayPort. 3D Vision Surround could still be possible by utilizing the three connectors. The card retains 4-way SLI support. It seems plausible that Galaxy takes this product to western markets, including Europe, through its KFA2 brand.

I was hoping this would be a little shorter seeing as how the PCB is like half the gtx680s

but seems pretty awesome I'm hoping we see more single slot gpu's

It looks really cool, but until it hit the shelves I don't count on the announcements. There are a lot of paper-launches: Sparkle gts450 Low-profile, Sparkle gt LP One, Sparkle 13'' GTX 570 , Palit gts450 LP- almost unavailable, Galaxy have a long shot there too. So we w8 and see.

I had a single slot 8800GT with a fan like that. Don't recall it being noisy, but I never OC'd it.

This could be very interesting. If it is cool and quiet and is priced right, could be very tempting.

Even for a regular AMD/ATI user. :D

Connectors is not in a bad place, as that is where the end of the card is. The GTX670 is a very short card.

Your question should be "Y U No sell single-slot Stateside?", because even I can find Galaxy's single-slot cards here. Its single-slot GTX 470 is still in the market.

Galaxy has "pictured" a single slot revision of nearly every card since 2009, how many have they built/sold? Zilch

This seems like it could be more of a reality now, seeing how small the PCB is of reference 670's.

there is also a blue wire if you look closely, but my guess would be a temperature probe, although they wouldn't take four wires. Got me stumpted too!

well, those are the four wire colors of a PWM controlled fan, so that's probably it.
