I'm considering buying the 670, but not sure if it's powerful enough. I wanna game on 1920 * 1080 with max settings on all games. Any 670 users out there care to report FPS for these games?

MIN/AVG/MAX?

Arkham City
Skyrim
Witcher 2

Sup? Here's the deal: on average the GTX 670 is 5% slower than the GTX 680. I popped a 680 into my new build last night, haven't gotten to test it out much, BUT I couldn't find a way to make skyrim drop below 60 frames even when being chased by every guard in riften and running to the top of the temple of mara stairs and looking at the market. Battlefield 3, all ultra with 2x MSAA and the card just laughed.... Never below about 55, usually around 70+ FPS when I turned off VSYNC.

Anyway, 670's can be overclocked to be like a stock 680, which is pretty much what I have (a little faster than stock), so you can expect those frames. Good luck! It's a sweeeeeeet card my man. I know that's not exactly the detailed answer you're looking for, but it's a real world trial, which I find more indicative of the real experience.

You should check this out.



You are an ass. He is asking for real world experience, that's why he came here. Reviews like that often show numbers that aren't entirely honest or don't test the card in every day gaming situations on the average system. He wants first hand experience.

Yes, because reviewers try very hard to show fake and meaningless results. :sarcastic: 


Reviews are great and all, but by their very nature they can't capture the essence of what a card "feels" like to game on. For instance, I can always tell the difference between an ATI and NVIDIA Gpu simply by the image on screen - they render images every so slightly differently, and thus constitute an aesthetic choice. Furthermore, several reviewers have been known to state that 30 frames on one card feels entirely different from 30 frames on another.

TL;DR numbers are numbers, experience is more valuable.

Pardon me guys, i thank you all for the answers. But the FPS i asked for those games, are the games that are the most taxing on graphics cards.

How about just one, what do 670 users get MIN/AVG/MAX FPS for arkham city? I watched on you tube and it gets even lower than 40...which ain't good. And in some reviews it says it's around 80. Don't really know which to believe :(

Yeah, got to agree, 670's great for 1080p. use adaptive vsync in the driver settings (works great with my GTX 560 :o ) and you should be good.

you may see some drops below 60 fps on something like BF3 multiplayer with ultra, but that may be the CPU's fault at times, or the HDD. And i can't tell the difference b/w 55 and 60 really, unless it's a stutter.
