EVGA GeForce GTX 670 SuperClocked (Cont’d)
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

In Figure 6, you can see the video card with its cooler removed. We were impressed by how short the printed circuit board is, at 6.7” (170 mm). The video card, however, is a little longer, at 9.5” (240 mm), because of the fan.

It uses a voltage regulator with four phases for the GPU and two phases for the memory chips. The voltage regulator circuit uses a digital design and is controlled by an NCP5392P chip. All coils use ferrite cores and all capacitors are solid.

The reviewed video card uses eight Hynix H5GQ2H24AFR-R0C GDDR5 chips, each one storing 2 Gbit of data, making the 2 GB of memory available on this video card. Each chip is connected to the GPU through a 32-bit lane, creating the 256-bit datapath that is available. These chips can run up to 6 GHz. On this video card, they are accessed at 6,210 MHz, which is already above their labeled clock rate. Of course, you can always try to push the memory clock above its specs.
