    Yeah, it's me :)

    Anyway, if those TweakTown numbers are good then I think these 670 cards are going to be the better choice for very similar money. If AMD respond and cut their 79xx range a bit further then it might be worth having another look.

    Quite a large amount of stock compared to 680s then, eh?

    Afternoon gents,
    Just wondering if these wee beasties are actually going on sale tomorrow or is it just the NDA being lifted tomorrow?
    Id like to know if i should sell my own cards now or hang on to them over the weekend.

    I think is official release date so I don't see a reason why OC can't sell them straight away :)

    2PM is when the NDA is officially lifted so they should go on sale then. Usually a store will list them early and then it just becomes a free for all. So just wait and see really.

    Zotac GTX670. Think this is their reference / non overclocked card that uses a reference GTX 680 pcb.

    The MSI 670 OC is NOT a 680 PCB, its a short PCB.

    The only Zotac 670 to use a 680 PCB is their 4GB GTX 670 card, which there is no ETA for.

    My bad it's the Windforce isn't it.


    Updated the post with more Zotac pictures, including chip and front naked pcb photos. Would that one be the 4GB model then Gibbo? I can't really read the Chinese website at all and Google translate just messes it up so can't see if it says it has 4GB of memory. :D

    I'm worried abut the smaller PCB, will it not be hotter all crammed on a smaller board? my main concern is noise level, these should be as quiet if not quieter than a reference 680 yes?

    So all reference cards are with short PCB? only non reference have the 680 PCB. Do you know why Nvidia have gone down this root for the 670? cost cutting....
