Nvidia today launched the third GPU based on its next-generation Kepler graphics architecture, the GeForce GTX 670, which brings dramatically improved levels of price-performance, power efficiency and whisper-quiet operation for PC gamers. Engineered from the same DNA as the recently announced GTX 680 — NVIDIA’s top-of-the-line, single GPU—the GTX 670 packs a mean punch in its lithe 9.5-inch-long frame. It outpaces the closest competitive product in gaming performance by upwards of 45 percent, while consuming approximately 18 percent less power. The GTX 670 is built using NVIDIA’s 28-nanometer Kepler architecture, as are the GTX 680 and dual-GPU GTX 690, which were introduced in March and April, respectively. The card is available now from the all major add-in card suppliers, including ASUS, MSI, Palit and ZOTAC in India for 29,999, inclusive of all taxes.
Their new beast, unleashed
Nvidia hasn’t neutered the card too much, except for a bit of the clock speed and the number of shaders. The GTX 670 comes with 1344 CUDA cores (GTX 680 had 1536) and the clock speed has been dropped a bit to 915MHz with the GPU Boost frequency set to 980MHz. Thankfully they haven’t touched the memory and you still get 2GB of GDDR5 memory running at 6Gbps. With this, they’ve managed to drop the TDP down to 170W, which is very good for a high-end card. GTX 670 is based on the same SMX architecture; you automatically inherit all the features of Kepler, including GPU Boost, Adaptive V-sync, FXAA, TXAA and 3D Vision Surround.
We’ve already reviewed the reference card from Nvidia and were very pleased with the performance. You can read the full review of the GTX 670 right here.
