Today the new NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 670 is officially launched to the market and while we managed to bring you a look at the reference GTX 670 running at stock and overclocked before others, today we're looking at our first retail offering.
The first GTX 670 we're looking at comes from Palit and is part of the new JetStream series; a series that impressed us when we looked at the 2GB and 4GB versions of the GTX 680 that launched last month. Today we'll find out if stepping back from the GTX 680 to GTX 670 can help keep this new series looking strong.
As always there's a few things we need to do before we get into the performance side of things and the first thing is the package and bundle. From there we'll take a closer look at the video card and see what exactly the new Palit JetStream GTX 670 offers us before taking a closer look at the specifications.
Once we've done that we'll quickly cover our testbed and then get into the performance side of things to see how the pre-overclocked GTX 670 we've got here today from Palit goes against the reference clocked GTX 670 along with the seeing how it sits against the reference clocked GTX 680. First, though, let's check out the package.
Looking at the box design we can see it's near identical to the JetStream GTX 680 video cards we've looked at before. Opening up we can see the video card along with a large focus on some of the main features the JetStream GTX 670 offers.
One of the biggest highlights for the JetStream card is the dual TurboFan Blade setup which is one fan down on its big brother the GTX 680 which saw a triple fan setup .Other highlights include LED lighting, DrMOS Mosfets and triple monitor DVI support.
Moving onto the bundle there's not a lot going on which doesn't come as too much of a surprise since Palit have never been known for a massive bundle. Looking above you can see we've got a quick install guide, driver CD, dual Molex to 6-pin PCIe power connector along with a DVI to VGA and HDMI to DVI adapter.
