The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 is the latest game changer powered by 2GB of GDDR5 memory and 1344 CUDA cores and has seven streaming multiprocessors instead of eight found on the GTX 680. Even with one less multiprocessor to the GTX 680, gamers will be able to experience gaming realism with NVIDIA ® Surround, Nvidia 3D Vision® Surround™ and PhysX® rendering incredibility detailed environments and characters in full 1080 HD or even 2560x1600 with a single graphics card. The GTX 670 features NVIDIA® GPU Boost; this advanced technology dynamically maximizes clock speeds to bring out the best performance in every game. The GeForce GTX 670 also supports new NVIDIA temporal antialiasing (TXAA) technology that minimizes “jaggies” to deliver the ultimate combination of quality and performance.

The new GeForce GTX 670 can be found in MAINGEAR’s critically acclaimed line of VRTX (Vertical Exhaust) Cooling Technology desktops: the SHIFT, the F131, and the Potenza.  With a motherboard rotated 90 degrees to exhaust hot air out the top of the chassis, cool air is easily brought in from the bottom, making for a quieter, more reliable, and simply better performing PC.  The low noise signature and power consumption of the GTX 670 combined with the heat stack design of these award-winning systems make for a potent combination of serene operation and killer performance.

“The New GeForce GTX 670 combined with our desktop innovation equal a game changer in both aspects of performance and affordability.” said Wallace Santos, CEO and Founder of MAINGEAR. “Offering a faster, smoother and richer pc experience is what MAINGEAR and NVIDIA always deliver.”
