Reivew: For The Win wins


Our today’s task is to see whether EVGA’s GTX 670 FTW is really a graphics card for the win, or the FTW (For The Win) moniker is just a marketing ploy. Namely, we’re hoping the GTX 670 FTW will fare really well when it comes to noise, overclocking and, thanks to the high factory overclock, performance as well. If you’re looking at the picture below and wondering how can this be when EVGA used reference cooling, the trick is that this is reference GTX 680’s cooling. In fact, EVGA also took the reference GTX 680’s PCB as well.

The GPU is overclocked from reference 915MHz to 1006MHz, while the memory is up from reference 1502MHz to 1552MHz (6208MHz effectively).

GTX 670 and GTX 680 graphics cards use the GK104 GPU. EVGA set the GTX 670 FTW’s clocks at 1006MHz, which is the reference clock on the GTX 680. Naturally, performance can’t be the same because the GTX 670 comes with one SMX unit less. This means that the GTX 670 has 1344 CUDA cores while the GTX 680 has 1536 CUDA cores.

Both the GTX 670 and GTX 680 feature identical memory subsystems, packing four 64-bit memory controllers (totaling at 256-bit) and 2GB of GDDR5. As we already said, EVGA’s GTX 670 FTW comes factory overclocked.
