How well can the GeForce GTX 670 run games
31 Oct 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

Getting one of these GeForce GTX 670 graphics cards allows the gamer to run indie system requirements and some less demanding AAA titles. In today’s PC hardware terms these are considered middle range for gaming performance. All games with system requirements of DirectX 11 or lower are met by this card.

What FPS performance can the GeForce GTX 670 get on latest AAA 2019 games? In particular our game review looks at the FPS achieved running on Ultra graphics settings on the 1080p screen resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 217 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the GeForce GTX 670 can run Need For Speed Heat at 1080p and saw it return weak frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 34 FPS, Medium: 27 FPS, High: 18 FPS and Ultra: 13 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Borderlands 3 returns a weak 13 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

With PC gamers looking for larger screen sizes like 1440p we tested the GeForce GTX 670 by playing Need For Speed Heat which yielded a weak performance. Its FPS results for the graphics settings are as follows - L: 26FPS, M: 21FPS, H: 14FPS, U: 10FPS. Another popular game we tested with this card was Borderlands 3 and that was weak. This graphics card delivered 10 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Another popular title was Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order which is predicted to get weak results with a 0FPS on Ultra 1440p. In summary we feel the GeForce GTX 670 running at 1440p is the wrong choice for PC gaming.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 670 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 670 in your PC? This GeForce GTX 670 card has 12 to 18 months of latest AAA game play left in it before upgrading should be considered

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 670? A suitable upgrade choice for the GeForce GTX 670 is the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB, which is 117% more powerful and can run 900 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements. Alternatively upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB which is 62% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 691 games from the most demanding games today.

GeForce GTX 670 Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 670 is a High-End Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Kepler Architecture.


Architecture
The Kepler Architecture was NVIDIA's big step to power efficiency. Each Stream Multiprocessor (SMX) now hosts 192 Shader Processing Units - against the 48 of older Fermi Architecture, and has been redesigned being now clocked at the same speed of the Central Unit. This means they are more energy efficient and will consequently lead to cooler operating temperatures. However, it also means they are weaker. It can be said that one Fermi SMX is as fast as 2 Kepler SMXs.
Additionally, and not available in all GPUs, Kepler also introduced the Boost Clock Feature. The Boost Clock is an even higher Clock Speed activated when in gaming mode and becomes the effective speed of the GPU.


GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed Kepler Kepler GK104-N13E-GTX-A2 which has 7 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 1344 Shader Processing Units, 112 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The Central Unit is initially clocked at 915MHz and goes up to 980MHz, in Turbo Mode.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1502MHz.


Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, CUDA, OpenCL, DirectCompute, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 170W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with two available 6-pin connectors.


Performance
With one Streaming MultiProcessor disabled, when compared to the higher positioned GeForce GTX 680, its performance lies somewhere between a Radeon HD 7950 and a Radeon HD 7970. However, at higher resolutions, Radeon HD 7970 is considerably faster.


System Suggestions
We recommend a Powerful Processor (Intel Core i5) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX 670.

Yes it will, but only if you start playing on higher resolution on 1024x768 you should be fine. Still it will be massive upgrade to your current card.

If you're on a budget I'd definitely go for the 960, seeing as the 670 is pretty old. But if you can go for it, go for a 970 because it'll last you atleast 3 years, and is great bang for your buck.

LOL, The 670 is actually a better card than the 960. It has significantly faster V-ram which can help with being able to turn up certain settings. To be honest games today have not advanced much since 2009. And they do not need much GPU.

No, Haswell i3s can take one GTX 970 without much problems


as far i know, a ivy i3 can take the GTX 770 and a sandy i3 take a GTX 670 without any problem with bottleneck.


The GTX x80 series need a i5 of minimum CPU for heavy games.

Only 1% worse:-).The asus gtx 660ti dc2 oc version is about the same performance as this card with a 100mhz core oc and a 400mhz memory oc.

you could minimaze with oc besides your can be oc well and also i think the bottleneck could be slighty noticed in cpu tensive games but not much.. but why not gtx 960 or amd r 3xxx to come

Nah bro you will notice a bottleneck in cpu intensive games maybe if you oc your cpu for about 20% that bottleneck will fade out but still they are still powerfull cards for a a10-7800 :) hope that helps
