    The power connectors listed for the GTX 680 on the chart on page 5 of the first GTX 670 review states that it uses 1x 6-pin and 1x 8-pin connectors, which might be true of custom cards but the reference one I have uses 2x 6-pin connectors.

    Good review but you seem to have forgotten the CPU use measurements.
    At the start of the article it says you will be using 3.8GHz and 4.6GHz CPUs.
    That was the last mention of them that I can see.

    edit: although i expected such OC results, its ok but nothing fascinating about 600 series, not for that price :O

    there is typo in the opening:

    "Hello everybody, NVIDIA today launches their GeForce GTX 670 series graphics cards. Guru3D has prepared four separate GeForce GTX 670 articles, once reference, one 2 and 30way SLI review, an ASUS GTX 670 DirectCU II TOP review and a Palit GTX 670 JetsStream review"

    No the servers load averages are fine, we are load-balanced.

    The GTX 670 SLI review makes for interesting reading though the lack of triple monitoring testing is a surprising omission, particularly when it came to the tri-SLI tests. Wouldn't tri-SLI show better scaling with resolutions in excess of 2560x1440 such as 5760x1080, etc?

    Also, 2 x EVGA GTX 670s can be bought from Scan for £600 (the SC version for £312) yet it matches the GTX 690 in many of the benchmarks. The GTX 690 costs almost £900 yet two GTX 670s can be had for £600 (or £624 for the SC ones). Talk about shooting yourself in the feet! :p

    All the Kepler cards seem to awesome (I know my GTX 680 certainly is), perhaps too good, as there's no reason really to buy a GTX 680 at £420 anymore if you can pick up a GTX 670 SC for £108 less and match it for speed...

    And people say Metro 2033 is a poorly optimized game... Riiiiight. It scaled the best on all resolutions, and I am very impressed with this card.

    Any thoughts on what the pricing will be in New Zealand?

    I noticed that the other GTX 670 reviews also incorrectly list the GTX 680 as using 1x 6-pin and 2x 8-pin connectors so you might want to correct those as well. I noticed the first review has been corrected already.

    Ordered two of them, was going to go for three then read Hilbert saying 1920x1200 really doesn't scale with a third

    Great value for money though in my opinion. Really glad i didn't stump up £900 for 2 x 680s!

    The Palit Jetstream review seems to be missing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, not that it matters much, plenty of others to compare against.

    Nice reviews as per, cheers Hilbert.

    All have been corrected yet the caches need to rotate before visible on the frontend.

    Yeah this is why we did the 3rd SLI card, as the article states we focus on single monitor gaming. If that is your setup then the 3rd card really would be a waste of your cash my man. Unless you need it for high 3DMark scores etc

    I'm truly pissed off. You can get a 670 for about £300 on ebuyer. I paid £460 for my 680!!!! A HUNDRED AND SIXTY POUNDS FOR 5FPS MORE. Ridiculous. I'm returning the card.
