The NVIDIA GTX 670 is one of the best GPU available today when you consider the price and the performance that the card offers. Like any reference design card, the PNY GTX 670 performance is not much different from the reference card. The noise-level, power consumption, and the temperature are all pretty much mimics what we have seen with the GTX 670. As always when you shop for a reference card, you would be looking for what sets one card from other besides the card and its performance. With the PNY GTX 670, it’s the card’s price and warranty. Being one of the cheapest GTX 670’s on the market, the PNY card is actually not skimming on the warranty. In fact, the card sets itself apart from all other cards by offering a limited lifetime warranty (provided that you register or else you get just one year). While we are not too thrilled about the need for registration, we do appreciate the lifetime warranty since most other graphics vendors stopped offering such lengthy warranty for their products. The included HDMI cable is also a nice touch since most reference card only comes with bare minimal accessories so it’s nice to see PNY goes beyond the others while keeping the price low. Ultimately, if you are simply want a GTX 670 that offers the best bang for the buck, this is the card for you.
