Overclocking

Most of the clock speed reduction has been clawed back with our overclock, which leaves only the reduction in CUDA cores as the performance detriment when compared to its big brother. Our anticipation is almost palpable.

Temperatures

With the stock cooler and a hefty old overclock the GTX670 isn't exactly cool. Of course this leaves plenty of room for other manufacturers to leap in with their alternative solutions.

I'm starting to save some money for a new card now (my 6850 is getting old ) and have my eyes on the Asus DCII TOP 670, which has 680 performance out of the box, a 680 PCB with much better temps. Depends on any further price drops and how the "ghz" editions of the 7970s do before I buy one though.

But as far as i'm concerned the 670 is the best bang for buck card on the market at the moment.Quote

Awesome review as always. I love the GTX 670, i want one so bad. Got my eye on a non-ref Asus 670, looks absolutely amazingQuote

What about all of the stuttering issues being posted online with the 6xx series?

With this being said would paying £30 more for a 7970 be worth it?

I did really want to get the 670 Windforce, but all of these stuttering issues are pushing me to the £30 more expensive 7970 Windforce.Quote

The 7970 is overall slower than the 670, so no it would not be worth it at all. And i haven't heard anything about these stuttering issues at allQuote
