I found myself a little surprised that companies have come out so quickly with non-reference versions of the new GTX 670. At launch we found ourselves looking at the Palit offering which is part of the new Jetstream series.
Today we're looking at a version from Inno3D. This is a company we haven't heard from in ages and for the most part it's probably got to do with the fact that NVIDIA have been fairly quiet up until a month ago. Today, though, the GTX 670 we're looking is part of the iChill series, a line that's been around for a while and has always impressed us.
In the past, the iChill series tended to bring with it strong performing coolers that were always on the larger side of things. The low noise and low temperatures came at the cost of a big cooler. We'll see today if that's a trend we continue to see. For people who are only interested in going down the one video card path, a larger cooler can be a good option.
As always there are a few things we need to do before we take a look at the performance. The first is we need to take a closer look at the package. While we're lacking a proper box for the card, we've got the full bundle that we'll check out. Next we'll move onto the video card and also check out the specifications.
We're dealing with an overclocked video card here today so we'll see what Inno3D choose to do with the out of the box clocks. Finally we can get into the fun stuff and check out the performance side of things and see how the Inno3D offering compares to a bunch of other video cards including the stock clocked reference option.
The bundle is fairly impressive. While we've got the standard pieces of kit like driver CD, manual, DVI to VGA connector and a dual Molex to 6-pin PCIe power connector, we've also got a key for 3DMark 11, a mouse pad and an Allen key that is used for the cooler.
In a time where we see more and more companies shrink the size of bundles, the Inno3D offering is pretty nice with those couple of little extras that we see most companies ignore.
