GeForce GTX 670 2 GB Review: Is It Already Time To Forget GTX 680?

Benchmark Results: 3DMark 11

Right out of the gate, we’re led to believe that the GeForce GTX 670 is marginally faster than AMD’s flagship Radeon HD 7970, with the GeForce GTX 680 a little more than nine percent quicker than the 670.

Take into consideration the fact that GeForce GTX 670 is £100 less expensive than the 680, which is faster, and £50 less than the Radeon HD 7970, which appears slower. This could be a massively popular card, should Nvidia overcome the manufacturing issues that have so obviously impacted its ability to deliver ample supply of 28 nm GPUs.

    I really think AMD should of set the 7970 clocks higher at default. Any 7970 owner knows with their card at 1125/1575 its much faster than the GTX 670 but this review paints a very different picture.

    Shut up and take my money, NVIDIA!

    AMD probably have very good reasons for keeping their cards at that level. I mean, if they could release them factory overclocked, they would be doing it as fast as they could, as it would give them a huge edge.

    gtx 670 and 680 performance is too similar !!!!! 680 is pointless !!!! don't buy it !!!

    Great job with the relative performance % charts on page 15 - would be great to start seeing this in all graphics card reviews (for example the upcoming GTX660 review comparing with GTX570 and GTX670!). Also good job re-running the numbers on all three GTX600 cards with the fresh drivers.

    You should be aware though when talking about availability issues that these don't necessarily apply to all markets. Over the past couple of years (since GTX470/GTX480) launch, I've observed quite a few cards with apparently poor availability actually being very easy to get hold of in the UK. Maybe it's easier to cater to the graphics needs of 60 million people than of 300 million :-) Something to keep in mind anyway.
