Unlike Gainward's Phantom card, Gigabyte's take on the GeForce GTX 670 2GB does the original card justice by striking a balance between price and performance that is truly excellent. Despite costing roughly the same as a Radeon HD 7970 3GB, Gigabyte's...

Based on the results from more than a dozen games tested it is clear that Nvidia achieved its goal of matching the Radeon HD 7970's output, while remaining priced against the more affordable HD 7950 at $400. The GTX 670 is 15% faster than the HD 7950...

In the grand scheme of all things graphics card related, Gigabyte’s WindForce OC is something of a freak. Typically, overclocked, custom cooled GPUs come with one of two things: a high cost and leading edge clock speeds or a lower price and somewhat...

GIGABYTE's GTX 670 OC is one of the best GTX 670 cards available right now. It comes with an overclock out of the box, that is moderate compared to other custom 670s, but is still high enough to bring overall performance to within 2% of the much more...

The Gigabyte GV-N670OC-GD2 has many things going for it starting with the new GTX 670 GPU. This may be a cut down version of the GTX 680 but it has plenty of power for most games and some to spare in others. Most of that power comes from the impressive...
