Hot on the heels of the impressive, dual-GPU powered GeForce GTX 690, which launched just a few short days ago, NVIDIA is already back with a much more affordable Kepler variant featuring a slightly pared down GK104 GPU. What’s perhaps most interesting to all of you though, is that this new card will offer near-GeForce GTX 680 performance, at prices starting under the $400 mark. The new GeForce GTX 670 we’ll be showing you here today sports the very same chip that powers the high-end GeForce GTX 680 and 690, but with a few shader cores disabled. The cards will sport a more compact design and a few other tweaks as well... NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 Reviews, EVGA and Gigabyte
...so....how do we enable that smx on this board to get it to a 680...
That's not necessarily true. It may be just a BIOS flash away on cards like the GB model we looked at, which use the same PCB as the GTX 680.

The boys at AMD need to pick up their game! Nvidia is leaving them in the dust!
I agree, NVIDIA is leaving them behind with all these new cards
This GTX-670 series is significant. It delivers a lot of power and has a much nicer price. Two of these in SLI would be rockin' too.
Good review Marco. I like that you compared them with everything but the kitchen sink!
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
I don't see why they just disable parts of a board and price it lower. However this is all good for the consumers but should just price the 680 accordingly :P... lol Still awesome job with nvidia!
too cheap :(
raise price higher please?
I am in the market for a new card soon. This is good news for consumers like me who want lots of power at a decent price.
Two of these in SLI basically = the performance of a 690 at $800. Pretty crazy considering where this card is targeted. Good review, I'd like two please.
GTX 670, fantastic card, fantastic price- only downside is people like me who paid for expedited receipt then got one of the first waves of card that were crap. Having to return now due to heavy artificing problems. Red blocks of crap everywhere followed by video crashes. EVGA best support/customer service ever- which is great compensation for crappy batch of products.
