Geforce GTX 670 vs Geforce GTX 680

Intro

The Geforce GTX 670 features core speeds of 915 MHz on the GPU, and 1500 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 1344 SPUs along with 112 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all of that to the Geforce GTX 680, which comes with GPU clock speed of 1006 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory running at 1502 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also features 1536 Stream Processors, 128 Texture Address Units, and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.

I was thinking about getting a gtx 680. But given the specifications and price performance ratio, 670 should be a better choice is money is a factor to you. 670 is more than 100 dollar cheaper than 680 and you get a performance drop only 5-6%. Search in the google for their benchmark and you will be amazed at how gtx 680 and gtx 670 go neck to neck. If overclocked, gtx 670 can easily surpass a stock gtx 680. The memory bandwitdh and vedeo ram are the same!

thanks for info in going with gtx 670

anoyness says:

I'm getting a gtx680 for about the same price as a 670 you OC your 670 to my 680 but then i OC my 680 200mhz

scott says:

I Am defiantly going to go with a GTX 680, even though more expensive, i will buy the super over clock version which is much faster with better cooling.
