In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 670 PNY 2GB Edition.

The GTX 960 Ti has a 135 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 670, but the GTX 670 has 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 960 Ti. As a result, the GTX 670 exhibits a 1.7 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 960 Ti. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 960 Ti has a 135 MHz higher core clock speed and 32 more Render Output Units than the GTX 670. This results in the GTX 960 Ti providing 37.9 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 960 Ti was released over three years more recently than the GTX 670, and so the GTX 960 Ti is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GTX 670 when running the latest games.

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 GTX 960 Ti has 2048 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 GTX 960 Ti also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 960 Ti has 32.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 670, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 960 Ti is noticeably better than the GTX 670.

The GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB has 1536 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 670 PNY 2GB Edition has 1344. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 960 Ti is 1809 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 670 is 1317. The GTX 960 Ti having 492 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 960 Ti delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 670.

The GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB requires 140 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 670 PNY 2GB Edition requires 170 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 960 Ti and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 670. The GTX 670 requires 30 Watts more than the GTX 960 Ti to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GTX 670 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GTX 960 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB is an upcoming high-end Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Maxwell architecture.

Architecture
The first variant of the Maxwell Architecture succeeds the Kepler Architecture. Despite being also manufactured with a 28nm technology, it has an extremely large L2 Cache which allows NVIDIA to produce Graphics Cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed GM204-200-KD which has 12 SM activated and thus offers 1536 Shader Processing Units, 96 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The central unit runs at ????MHz and goes up to ????MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1753MHz.

Features
DirectX 12.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, GameStream, G-SYNC, GPU Boost 2.0, GeForce Experience, PhysX and other technologies.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 140W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

Performance
Coming Soon!

System Suggestions
We recommend a very strong processor (Intel Core i5 Quad Core/AMD FX Eight Core) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB.
GeForce GTX 670 PNY 2GB Edition is a renamed GeForce GTX 670 with no new features - not even a new cooling system. Its performance is exactly like the reference card.
