More about : 660ti 670

November 20, 2012 1:00:32 PM

Of course gtx 670
November 20, 2012 1:08:47 PM

But is GTX 670 worth 100$ more?
I would like to get cheapest card for 3D gaming
And how important is bandwith speed in 3D gaming?

A 660 is worth it's price a 660 ti is not because amd is giving three free games and with new drivers AMD just are violently making NV cards not a great buy right now

The Bottom Line

The real reason that the voices of the internet should be cheering should be for the falling prices that have been happening across enthusiast class video cards over the course of the past few months thanks to healthy competition between AMD and NVIDIA. From our perspective, the overall game play experience has improved slightly from older drivers for the cards from both the Red and Green teams, however we would not say that the performance differences have been earth shattering from the perspective of overall game play performance.

The most interesting stand out from this evaluation has been the NVIDIA GTX 660 Ti, which is priced significantly higher than the Radeon HD 7870 while turning in similar performance numbers. The GTX 660 Ti has lost its value at this point in time, lending way to the Radeon HD 7950 which has benefited from falling prices and new drivers.

If you are in the video card market today, the current offerings tend to scale very well with price and you will receive a higher level of performance for your incremental dollar spent.

I thought you could get a gtx 660 ti for ~300 and a gtx 670 for ~$360... the 670 is well worth the extra $60 imo.

Here what i suggest watch these videos.I would be concerned.I need to upgrade in a year from now.If your not then by all means get whatever you prefer bud.I usually am pretty picky though but look 7850 vs 660 ti then think of the price difference a 7870 would cost $250 and be on par with 660 ti that's just sad. http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=w...

I'm gonna start playing in Nvidia 3D vision. Is there any benchmark with 660, 660ti and 670 cards in 3D?

Exactly. No matter how you look at AMD is the way to go at every price point right now. The only one I would even consider from nvidia is the 670 since they can be found sub $350 at times (Though I wouldn't pay a cent more). For example:

7870 vs 660: The 7870 is easily stronger and often trades blows with the 660 Ti. Yet the 7870 is the same price and comes with Far Cry 3!

7950 vs 670: The 670 is probably about 10% stronger at this point, but the 7950 is known to overclock to 680 levels (Get the right model) and yet is $50 cheaper and comes with 3 free GOOD games.

680 vs 7970: The 7970 is about even with the 680, however it overclocks like nothing I have ever seen. You can seriously get a 25% performance increase to the point that it beats the 590 and 6990 (Even if they are OC'd too!). Also the 7970 is $50 cheaper and comes with 3 free games!.

Then the 7970 GHz is naturally ~7% stronger than a 680 and overclocks even higher than the normal version.

Really the choice is easy...

If you are going to get 670, then stop eating for a week and get the 680. Seriously, otherwise get the 660TI.

You do realize that AMD cards do 3D as well right?

What makes you say this? The 670 is about even with the 680 and uses less power. The 680 was made irrelevant the second the 670 came out.

I know it but it sucks.

You could get this 670 for $319 after rebate and it comes with borderlands 2 and assassin's creed 3.

I would get that but i live in Estonia.
So GTX 670 is way to go?

Go with the Gold, Get the GTX 670. With drivers the 670 is the better buy over GTX 660 TI

Thanks everyone, going with MSI GTX 670 which is about 400€ in Estonia (Dmn expensive)

I picked up a eVga gtx 670 FTW 2GB from microcenter for 369.99 with 20 Mail in Rebate.. I had the 660ti, it was a good card.. but it is worth extra dollars since it preforms the right at reference 680 speeds. But there will always be something better.. like a 4gb 670 or 680.. if I had the 680 I would be drooling over getting another one to be faster than the 690.. but I would be kicking myself for not waiting 3 months or so for the 700 series... 3d gaming really is not there yet with just one card.

I wanted a gpu that will handle BF4 but i think it might come as a disappointment seeing how the FPS is going to be capped at 60fps from what I have been hearing.. it will use 80% of frostbite 2 engine. what this means for 2gb on the card and current proformance. I am not sure.. but it is being made to play on next gen consoles ps4 xbox720 at 1080p 60fps... so what ever you get now 660ti or 670 should handle the next two years fine. if not. throw another one in there.

dont get more than 2gb on the card. sli will only read 4gb and 670 sli is very close to 680 sli. 660ti sli would not be worth it..

Then look at resale on said card.. the Ti will not resell as well as 670 dollar for dollar.
