Reivew: For The Win wins

At the end of the day, it’s clear that EVGA’s GTX 670 For The Win is in fact a winner. The factory overclock ensured that the card scores really close to the GTX 680, which is quite appealing, especially after considering the difference in price. When buying any graphics card, especially the factory overclocked cards, we usually look at the cooling first. In many cases you’ll get higher clocks and improved performance at the expense of silence. This is not the case with EVGA’s GTX 670 FTW, which remains silent in pretty much any scenario.

The GTX 670 FTW is priced at about €390 (about $420), which is some €40-50 higher than reference GTX 670 cards. Considering the silence and a high factory overclock, we could say it’s worth it. Gaming performance of the GTX 670 is hardly worth discussing any more, since they are among the fastest graphics cards on the market. Since availability of GTX 680 cards is yet to become healthy, those waiting for one may find EVGA’s GTX 670 For The Win to be a worthy alternative, if not replacement.
