Nvidia GeForce GT 640 Review: Cramming Kepler Into GK107
By

Afox sent us its rendition of the new GeForce GT 640, based on Nvidia's GK107 GPU. This one slots in under the existing GeForce GTS 450 to do battle with AMD's Radeon HD 6670. Does the Kepler architecture deliver, or is a $100 price target too high?

Skyrim remains the most-discussed sandbox RPG in recent memory. And since this great-looking game was patched not too long ago, relatively mainstream hardware has little trouble delivering playable performance in it.  

Afox’s GeForce GT 640 achieves 30 FPS at 1920x1080 with FXAA enabled. That’s slightly better than AMD’s Radeon HD 6670 GDDR5. More powerful options, such as the Radeon HD 7750, provide considerably more performance, though.

    What? You pay $30-$40 more for around 20 more fps than the ddr3 6670. Might as well buy a 6850 and get a smooth ~60fps.

    Cheapest I could find in my country 130 bucks, cheapest 7750 I could find: 125 bucks. Seeing that it has half the performance the 7750 has=screw you Nvidia.
