On our test bench today is the brand new ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II 4GB video card. What makes this video card special? Well, it has 4GB of RAM on board versus the standard 2GB. This evaluation is Part 1 of our look at the GTX 670 4GB. This initial evaluation focuses on a baseline performance under single display, and overclocking potential. We will see if the 4GB of RAM shows any difference under single display operation when pushed to the max, and then how it compares to reference GTX 670 and price equivalent AMD comparison to see if there is any advantage. Following this review, one week from now, will be Part 2 where we take two of these video cards with SLI and test at full NV Surround triple display resolutions. So stay tuned for the SLI NV Surround evaluation next week.
