Custom PCB and Windforce 2X cooler


The guys from Expreview.com managed to get their hands on custom Geforce GTX 670 graphics card from Gigabyte. The new Gigabyte GTX 670 Windforce 2X will feature custom PCB paired up with Gigabyte's well known Windforce 2X cooler that we had a chance to check out in our Gigabyte HD 7850 OC review.

According to details, the new Gigabyte GTX 670 Windforce 2X features custom design compact PCB that features Gigabyte Ultra Durable VGA features like 2-oz copper PCB, Japanese solid-state capacitors, ferrite core chokes, as well as Gigabyte's pretty good Windforce 2X cooler with two 8mm copper heatpipes and two 100mm fans. The PCB is in Gigabyte's trademark blue and features 4+2 phase VRM design and needs two 6-pin PCI-Express power connectors.

The new Gigabyte GTX 670 Windforce 2X will hit retail/e-tail in two versions, reference clocked and OC Edition. The OC Edition is clocked at 941MHz for base and 1019MHz for boost GPU clock while 2GB of GDDR5 memory is clocked at 6008MHz. The base GPU clock on the OC Edition is a decent OC from reference 914MHz.

Due to custom PCB and Windforce 2X cooler, new Gigabyte GTX 670 Windforce 2X cards are expected to retail at much lower price than the Gigabyte GTX 670 Windforce 3X ones.
