Overall and FV

The GTX 670 is basically a GTX 680 with one SMX missing meaning performance isn’t far from its slightly older brother. But with a discount of $100 over the GTX 680 this is lined up to be a great value. I was really interested to see how the GTX 670 compared to the GTX 580 due to their similar price points currently. The GTX 670 stomped all over the GTX 580 as well as just about everything that AMD had to offer. The only thing holding it and the GTX 680 back is onboard memory, with AMD’s HD 6970 and HD 6950 both sporting 3Gb to NVidia’s 2Gb’s. As you can see in our performance testing the only time this really comes into play is when you have large texture packs like in Crysis 2 or if you are running a high resolution monitor like a 30 inch. For most people the GTX 670 will be more power than they need for anything out currently. All of that with all of the same features that we saw with the GTX 680 like 3 + 1 monitor support. With this card being quad SLI capable, I am really curious how three GTX 680’s would compare to four GTX 670’s seeing as how the price difference between the two isn’t that much.

For those who can't afford the GTX 680 but want nearly the same performance, the GTX 670!
