A wild GTX 670 has appeared!

This MSI GTX 670 has been spotted in the wilds of Malaysia. Engadget is wondering if it is real, but I think the box looks pretty real to me. There could be more details here or here but I can't load these pages right now.

Attack of the GTX 690 clones!

The reviews for the GTX 690 are out and the cards have started showing up on manufacturer's websites. One thing I noticed right away is that all the cards look exactly the same. None of them feature any custom stickers or graphics. I don't think I've seen anything like this before.

Once this card is actually available for sale it will be the fastest single video card on the market. I have already updated our Superlatives page to reflect this. Stay tuned for the overclocking roundup.

Can you guess which company made this card?

A GTX 690

If you guessed Evga, then you are correct. And probably a wizard.

GPUReview's GTX 690 overclocking roundup!

I am not quite sure why some sites are getting such different results even though they are using the same core offset. I don't think it is their power settings since most site turn it up to 135% when they start overclocking. Nvidia told reviewers that the GTX 690 should be able to reach a 1.2GHz clock speed and nearly every site managed to get at least that far. Out of all the sites, I think [H]ard|OCP is the only one that mentioned that they made sure that both GPUs on the GTX 690 were running at the same speed:

"..if you are gaming, and want to stabilize GPU Boost between both GPUs, raising the Power Target is the way to go. This will keep both GPUs at the same clock speed, and it won't be overclocking the GPUs. The GPUs occasionally spiked up to 1071MHz, after raising the Power Target, so it didn't affect maximum clock speed too much, it just helped "equalize" both GPUs to each other. So there is a easy tip for stabilizing performance with the GTX 690; raise the Power Target."

Unlike the GTX 690 launch, the GTX 670 launch features many different overclocked models and improved cooling solutions. We got 21 cards listed so far and five of those are from Evga.

GPUReview's GTX 670 overclocking roundup!

It looks like these GTX 670's overclock pretty damn well. The overclocked models from Gigabyte, Zotac, Asus and Evga are at the top of the chart and that might be due to improved cooling over the reference design. There are a lot of question marks in the chart this time as a lot of reviewers are not telling their readers what clock offsets they are using or even what overclocking software they used.

 

And don't forget that GeForce GTX 670 video cards available now at Newegg.com!

How to choose what video card you need for Diablo III.

The release of Diablo III is right around the shadowy, skeleton littered corner and I am here to help you choose the best new video card for your budget so that you can kick demonic ass with maximum flair and efficiency. Since I was cursed by the lord of lies himself, I never got into the Diablo III beta and I was unable to play it on the weekend when it was open to everyone. To compensate for this horrible injustice, I will be using Tom's Hardware's Diablo III beta benchmarks to get an idea about how various video cards perform in the game.

I bid thee to journey to the next page... if you dare!
