GeForce GTX 670 

Released May, 2012
  • 915 MHz
  • 2 GB GDDR5
6.7 Out of 10

In terms of gaming resolutions the card can easily handle all games at maximum settings at 1920x1200.

While overclocking is probably not what most system builders of small form-factor systems have in mind, I can happily report that overclocking works just as well as on any other "big" GTX 670.

Reviews Word on the street for the GeForce GTX 670

Memory overclocking on the other hand works fantastically, ending up higher than any other graphics card we tested so far.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


The stock GeForce GTX 670 provides already great performance, but ASUS has topped that by boosting it with a large overclock out of the box which catapults it beyond GTX 680 performance levels.

You may combine up to four GTX 670 cards from any vendor in a multi-GPU SLI configuration for higher framerates or better image quality settings.
by techPowerUp! (May, 2012)
Given the $420 price, the card is a great choice in the current-generation high-end segment.

NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 600 Series has been on the market for quite a while now, and with no successor in sight, it is still providing an excellent gaming experience.
by techPowerUp! (Jan, 2013)
I, given the compact size of the card and the constraints that come with it, understand that I can't complain about noise levels under load, but idle noise could have been better, especially for a powerful ITX gaming rig that doubles as a media playback station in the living room.
by techPowerUp! (Apr, 2013)
ASUS has now released an optimized design to meet the requirements of small form-factor systems that still pack a heavy gaming punch.
by techPowerUp! (Apr, 2013)


Manual overclocking works well too, especially memory, which is not overclocked out of the box, performs exceedingly well.
by techPowerUp! (May, 2012)
Relative overclocking potential of the ASUS DC II is not as big as other cards due to the high out of the box overclock.
by techPowerUp! (May, 2012)
GPU overclocking potential is outstanding and exceeds what we have seen on other GTX 670s we have reviewed previously.
by techPowerUp! (Jan, 2013)


Fan noise is great both in idle and while gaming.
by techPowerUp! (Jan, 2013)
Noise levels are at a minimum to ensure a quiet experience, no matter if you are browsing the Internet, working, or gaming, but other custom-design GTX 670 cards are a bit quieter.
by techPowerUp! (Jan, 2013)
It will deliver a whisper-quiet experience, no matter whether you are gaming or working.
by techPowerUp! (Jan, 2013)


Its $395 price is quite a bit higher than the cheapest GTX 670 reference design, which can be had for around $360, but as long as the price stays below $400, I'd consider it reasonable for this card.
by techPowerUp! (Apr, 2013)
ASUS tells us to expect a price of around $395 for the GTX 670 DC Mini, but the exact price has not been finalized yet.
by techPowerUp! (Apr, 2013)
MSI is asking a $30 price premium for their card, which doesn't look unreasonable, given the improved cooling and higher clocks.
