Nvidia releases its Kepler based Geforce GTX 670

Nvidia has released the Geforce GTX 670, a cut down version of its all conquering Geforce GTX 680 video card.

Nvidia’s 28nm Kepler GPU has won high praise from just about everyone and has managed to reinvent the firm’s desktop graphics business. Now the firm has started to cascade the Kepler architecture, albeit to the high-end Geforce GTX 670 card.

As Nvidia’s second Kepler desktop board, the Geforce GTX 670 features 1,344 cores, about 200 down from the Geforce GTX 680, and is clocked at 915MHz, the same frequency found on the £900 Geforce GTX 690, though its turbo boost is held back to 980MHz. Nvidia specifies 2GB of 256-bit GDDR5 memory, with its reference design having two dual-link DVI ports, one HDMI and one Displayport 1.2 output.

Although Nvidia’s Geforce GTX 670 isn’t quite as exotic as the firm’s dual-GPU Geforce GTX 690, it is far more accessible. The popularity of the card will come from whether Nvidia’s board partners produce boards that can be overclocked to Geforce GTX 680 levels, and while the firm didn’t refer to the Geforce GTX 680 specifically, it did say there will be considerable overclocking headroom.

Nvidia pitches its Geforce GTX 670 against AMD’s Radeon HD 7950 and the two boards are priced similarly at £330, though we could find a few Radeon HD 7950 boards that were up to £30 cheaper than Geforce GTX 670 units.

Asus, MSI, Gigabyte and Evga all have cards in stores today. Full details and features can be found on Nvidia’s website here.
