Nvidia Geforce GTX 670 Benchmarks

The reference design as well as some benchmarks of the GTX 670. The Geforce GTX 670 will be the third GPU to feature the 28nm Kepler GK104 core. This card with the plastic shroud looks like a normal length card but if the shroud is taken out it is revealed the card is as short as a GTX 295. As you can see from the image above The Kepler Gk104 is accompanied by a 4 Phase VRM which is powered by dual 6 pin power connectors. There are four memory chips at the front and four at the back of the PCB which suggest a 2GB memory buffer which is 256-bit wide, however an additional room for eight more chips mean we would be looking at 4GB non reference models soon. The Kepler GK104 has one of its SMX units disabled totaling at 1344 Cuda Cores, 112 TMUs and 32 ROPs. Display outputs include two DVI ports accompanied by a single HDMI and a Display port. The two Gold SLI fingers allow for 4-Way multi GPU configurations. The card was manufactured b Gigabyte as suggested from the codename “GV-N670OC-2GD2″ was pitted against the Radeon HD 7950 and GeForce GTX 570. The results obtained were quite shocking:
As you can see the GTX 670 blows the GTX 570 away but also outperforms the HD 7950 and at times giving around 80% of the performance of a GTX 680 at stock clocks and with overclocked frequencies can reach the 680 levels with ease. The card would be a strong entry in the Kepler lineup though its price is still not confirmed, Some suggest $349 while custom variants would sell for above $399. Official launch date for the 670 is May 7th.
