    GTX 670 is already in stock at Tiger Direct, and faster than AMD's entire lineup?!

    I see it but I can't believe it! Tiger Direct says they already have the MSI GTX 670 in stock for $409.99 with free shipping. At that price they're practically giving them away. I guess I'm so surprised seeing as the 680's STILL aren't showing up in any decent stock anywhere. The MSI is freakin' hideous btw.

    Even more surprising is that this card is *supposedly* faster than an AMD 7970. I don't know if I can believe that one though. Looking at those benchmarks, it also shows the 670 nipping at the heels of the 680.

    My personal issues with NVIDIA and the issues that TweakTown on a whole have pushed right aside, the GEFORCE GTX 670 is just an awesome video card that is going to be a serious headache for AMD. The performance of the video card is really quite crazy and the fact that this is the second option for NVIDIA when it comes to single GPU video cards is bad for AMD when it has no issue competing with their strongest option; the HD 7970.

    EDIT: It's already out of stock as of right now.

    Considering that the 7970 is faster than the 680 in some cases, I have my doubts that the 670 is "faster than AMD's entire lineup". true in some cases maybe (if any of those benches are to be believed) but that headline is just sensational nonsense. I'll be waiting for the benchmarks from PcPer and HardOCP before I draw any conclusions, TweakTown is unprofessional garbage.

    Yeah, I'm not buying it either. Why would Nvidia come out with a card that's barely any slower than the 680, for $100 less?

    that tweektown card was a non reference model I thought.

    What's new here?

    NVIDIA's fastest GPU beats AMDs at almost everything, their runner up trades benchmark.

    Pretty much business as usual, the only difference here is the top AMD card started out at $550 and now the $400 card from NVIDIA is going to be shown to be the better value all the way around. (unless you're folding)

    According to the reviewer, it was a card from "the R&D department" at a manufacturer. At least I think that's what he was saying. It could be anything really. Regardless, I hope the performance on this is as good as they claim, the prices on the 680 and 7970 need to come down. It will make the 660TI an even better deal when it finally makes it's appearance.

    Clicked on the tigerdirect link and it shows out of stock but the funny part is the alternative they offer, a GT 520 at 44.99.

    Lol, I noticed that too. We see you're looking at a Corvette ZR1, it's out of stock, but you might be interested in this sweet little Aveo!

    Looks like an impressive card. definitely a much better value than the 680, which it will match with overclocking. I was hoping that this card wouldn't make me regret my 7970 purchase and it definitely doesn't. reference models will be 400, but anything with a better cooler will be in the ~$420 range. That is only $30 less than I paid for my 7970, which is still going to be significantly faster at 2560x1440 when overclocked

    edit: not to mention that, unless the reason the 680 is so scarce is that they have a ton of bad GPU's with 1 bum shader cluster, we'll likely have a hard time finding 670's in stock

    Does anyone know the length of the 670?
