Cards like this belong in the low to mid-range market, and that's down to price and performance on paper, but every so often a card surprises us by offering something a little bit different. If you're a frequent reader of eTeknix, you'll know that we're not fans of reference products, because being sent the same product with a different sticker and packaging on defeats the object of writing a unique review. When we get a product that has a unique patented cooler or offers different clock speeds against a reference card, then we'll be happy to take a look and give our two cents on it.
This is the case today, although it only offers the stock clock speed, we were asked to take a look at the HD 6670 from Asus with their dust-proof fan design. Now we have had a look at an Asus graphics card with this fan before, but our testing procedure was a lot different back then, so we were keen to see how this card did, not so much in performance, though this is still important, but more in terms of cooling efficiency, acoustics and general power usage.
Also being a card that's in a certain segment such as this one, sometimes sees some surprising results as we delve further in, but will the HD 6670 from Asus do that? Let's find out shall we?
