It took EVGA one week to find faulty cards, acknowledge a problem, and deal with it by sending a new shiny FTW cards as a replacement.
As we reported earlier, EVGA had some problems with GTX 670 SC cards, which weren’t tested properly. But company has taken good care of those who received faulty cards by offering them a new FTW version instead. They didn’t even have to send them first (they got a replacement cards before sending Superclocked versions). So you may call it a true customer service.
But as for the card, which was not reviewed so far. EVGA GTX FTW version is based on GTX 680 PCB, which has much better cooling and components than reference GTX 670. As an example, it offers 30% more effective cooling, more solid caps and higher Power Target headroom. So this card offers over-voltage up to 145%, and as Jacob Freeman (EVGA) claims, it can safely be set to that voltage level. As a comparison, other GTX 670 cards offer only up to 125% power limit:
- Gigabyte GTX 670 OC – 111%
- KFA2 GTX 670 OC – 125%
- EVGA GTX 670 SC – 122%
EVGA GeForce GTX 670 FTW version comes with a base clock of 1006 MHz and boost clock of 1084 MHz. Card has overclocked memory to effective 6208 MHz.
