In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II OC Edition.

The GTX 670 has a 117 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GTX 780, but the GeForce GTX 780 has 80 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 670. As a result, the GeForce GTX 780 exhibits a 55.9 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 670. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 670 has a 117 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GTX 780, but the GeForce GTX 780 has 16 more Render Output Units than the GTX 670. As a result, the GeForce GTX 780 exhibits a 10 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 670. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GeForce GTX 780 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 670, and so the GeForce GTX 780 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 780 has 1024 MB more video memory than the GTX 670, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GeForce GTX 780 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce GTX 780 has 96.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 670, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 780 is massively better than the GTX 670.

The GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II OC Edition has 1344 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 780 has 2304. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 670 is 1422 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 780 is 2078. The GeForce GTX 780 having 656 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce GTX 780 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 670.

The GeForce GTX 780 requires 250 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GTX 670. We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GeForce GTX 780, 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 780 is a high-end graphics-card based on the 28nm, Kepler architecture.
It's based on the Kepler GK110 Core (same used on Titan) but with 12 SMX activated and therefore offers 2304 Shader Processing Units, 192 TMUs and 48 ROPs on a 384-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. While the central unit runs at 863MHz and goes up to 902MHz in Turbo, the memory clock operates at 1502MHz. It consumes up to 250W.
Benchmarks indicate that its performance is up to 30% better than previous GeForce GTX 680 and thus allows even the most demanding games to be playable at the highest settings, at 1080p. With proper overclocking and cooling, it can surpass GeForce GTX Titan.
