GTX 670 FTW vs GTX 580 benches

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Purolator dropped off my new EVGA GTX 670 FTW today.

Opened up the box to find out I didn't get the fancy foam case some others did on here. frown.gif

Took a quick pic of the 580 and the 670 together.

Then I ran the Heaven benchmark 3.0 with both cards using the setting from the Heaven 3.0 bench thread here.

Here's the GTX 580 result.

This is the GTX 670 FTW result.

Next, I did 3dmark11 on performance preset.

This is how the GTX 580 fared. Ignore the fact that the pic lists the 670. I took the snip of this screen with the 670 installed and apparently that will show whatever card is currently installed. This is the 580 result.

This is the GTX 670 FTW result.

As you can see, the 670 FTW appears to be a solid upgrade over the 580.

All results were run as the cards came out of the box, no overclocks. My 2500k was set at 4.2 ghz.

The 670 FTW is currently idling at 34c in my system. The 580 was easily 10c higher.

I bought this card thinking of a future SLI setup with lower power consumption and heat than the 580 would be.

I didn't expect it to be that much more powerful than the 580 really. I may not need SLI for awhile.

I have both cards presently, a Zotac amp edition 580 and an MSI 670. To tell you the truth I am leaning toward the 580. The image quality seems better and there is less z fighting. The 670 does play BF3 a bit better but still a bit of stutter. Using latest beta drivers after trying certifed ones for a while. The 580 seems to actually make the whole computer seem a bit faster. System boot time is longer with the 670 for some reason.

Benchmarks I've done in Arma 2 OA and ROF score both card neck and neck but the 670 just feels a bit more jerky and seems to have more fps swing then the 580. Fallout New Vega never drops below 60 fps with the 580 while it goes as low as high 40s with the 670. If the z fighting wasn't so bad I might stick with the 670 but I just can't seem to bring myself to. Might send it back for a 7970 but seriously just considering sticking with the 580 and sitting it out this round. If you have a 580 I wouldn't recommend upgrading to this as its just not large enough a performance gain and there seems to be a couple of drawbacks as it doesn't seem to run some older games quite as well as the 580.
