NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 Review Feat. EVGA: Bringing GK104 Down To $400by Ryan Smith on May 10, 2012 9:00 AM EST
Paired with Crysis as our second behemoth FPS is Metro: 2033. Metro gives up Crysis’ lush tropics and frozen wastelands for an underground experience, but even underground it can be quite brutal on GPUs, which is why it’s also our new benchmark of choice for looking at power/temperature/noise during a game. If its sequel due this year is anywhere near as GPU intensive then a single GPU may not be enough to run the game with every quality feature turned up.
With our second game the GTX 670 already begins to dig itself out of its hole from Crysis. Like the GTX 680 it doesn’t do particularly well here compared to AMD’s best, but it’s enough for a very slight lead on the 7950. At the same time however the GTX 670 falls farther behind the GTX 680, hitting an 8% gap at 2560.
