In the comments to our full review of the GeForce GTX 670 2GB graphics card a user asked for a comparison of the new GTX 670 against the Fermi-based GTX 570. I had some numbers for that already made up but ran out of time and space for it in our review that went up this morning. I thought that there might be others interested in this so I decided to put a news post with the results.
These performance graphs pit a reference clocked GTX 570 1.25GB card against the new reference GTX 670 2GB card.
Without a doubt the new GTX 670 is a faster GPU than the GTX 570:
- 3DMark11: +45%
- Battlefield 3: +34%
- DiRT 3: +28%
- Skyrim: +32%
- Metro 2033: +31%
- Dues Ex: +29%
- Batman: AC: +39%
- Power Consumption: -14%
With an average performance delta of 30% or more, the GTX 670 makes a solid upgrade for GTX 570 users but maybe more interesting, it does this while using 14% less power as well.
