I purchased a GTX 670 Power Edition in December and I've grown a bit concerned about the driver patchnotes.

The last few patches have had many updates, but none that have affected 670 performance.

For example, today's patch, 310.90, contained:

Quote:

-GTX 690 performance improvements for several games and applications
-GTX 680 performance improvements for
Up to 38% in Far Cry 3
Up to 26% in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2
Up to 16% in Battlefield 3
Up to 18% in Assassin's Creed III
Up to 9% in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Up to 6% in Medal of Honor: Warfighter
Up to 6% in StarCraft II
Up to 6% in Dragon Age II
Up to 6% in Batman: Arkham City
Up to 5% in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat
-GTX 660
Up to 24% in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2
Up to 10% in Battlefield 3
Up to 7% in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Up to 6% in Far Cry 3
Up to 5% in Dragon Age II
Up to 5% in Assassin's Creed III
Up to 4% in Batman: Arkham City
Up to 4% in Medal of Honor: Warfighter


Skipped right over the 670. Do I have reason for concern?

you shouldn't be worried about that. if they list down performance increase for every nvidia cards then the list will be too long lol. i think any improvement made on GTX680 should apply to GTX670 as well since both card were based on the same chip (GK104)
