In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 Gainward Phantom Edition are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II OC Edition.

The GTX 770 has a 170 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 670. This results in the GTX 770 providing 37.4 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 770 has a 170 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 670 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 770 providing 5.4 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 770 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 670, and so the GTX 770 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 670.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II OC Edition and the GeForce GTX 770 Gainward Phantom Edition have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 770 has 32 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 670, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 770 is noticeably better than the GTX 670.

The GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II OC Edition has 1344 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 770 Gainward Phantom Edition has 1536. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 670 is 1422 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 770 is 1846. The GTX 770 having 424 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 770 delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 670.

We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 770, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the GTX 670.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II OC Edition is a Special Edition of the powerful GeForce GTX 670. See the standard version for more information about it.
The new features include an increase in the core-clock that went from 915MHz to 980MHz while the Turbo Boost is now of 1058MHz. A 20% more effective cooler is also included.
The performance boost is significant and around 5% when compared to the standard GTX 670.
Most demanding games will run at the highest settings.
GeForce GTX 770 Gainward Phantom Edition is a special edition of the high-end GeForce GTX 770.
This edition comes with a custom triple fan cooling solution which by itself should allow a slight performance boost, as GeForce GTX 770 benefits from the GPU Boost 2.0 technology.
Also, it has been overclocked out of the box from 1046MHz to 1150MHz while its boost clock is now of 1202MHz. The memory clock was left untouched.
Benchmarks indicate a 6.5% performance boost when compared to the reference card and so this edition performs very slightly better than GeForce GTX 590.
