How well does your 670 perform?

#1TerantatekPosted 9/23/2013 9:41:26 PM
Thinking of purchasing an evga 4gb 670 and was wondering how it performs. One of the reasons I'm buying it is for modded Skyrim, if I use a 670 will there be a slight microstutter when loading a cell, enemies or whatever else? The other reason is because its vsync actually works.

my skyrim with a bunch of mods looks and runs great with a slightly overclocked gigabyte 670. the card is overall great and given me 0 problems. Performance is great too, maxes most games

I'm pretty happy with mine but you could get 4gb 760 or 3gb 7950 for cheaper. The 670 is only a tiny bit better than either of those but costs a lot more.

Get a 760 or 770, you'll get better performance.

I have 2 of them at the moment. Galaxy GTX 670 4gb's and before i had the second card i ran over 150 mods and was still able to maintain 60 fps. Of course some of the more taxing mods are going to bring performance down somewhat but i don't use anything like that except higher resolution textures and some lighting mods.

You already have a 7950, don't you TC? It would be a pretty poor trade, financially speaking.

A 670 is physically superior to a 760, a specific OCd 760 might ship faster than a stock 670 but unless you get the worst 670 ever it's going to overclock better. A 760 is literally a 660ti.

A 770 would be a better card obviously and I've seen them at about the same price as I paid for mine, but I've also seen 670s as cheap as $280. You'd be better off with a 2gb 770 than a 4gb 670 though and I imagine those costing about the same.

If you already have a 7950 though it's not really all that much of an upgrade if at all. The biggest upgrade would be another 7950, though you mentioned stutter during loads as being a problem so multi-gpu probably isn't for you whether it's from AMD or nvidia.

As for the card itself, I haven't cared to play anything it won't max at at least a fairly stable if not rock solid 60 fps maxed with a touch of AA. The only times I've consistently noticed it going below 60 have been CPU bottlenecks (My main FTB world was running at about 50 fps until I OCd) and HDD bottlenecks like Bioshock Infinite. I mostly play console ports however, and not games like Crysis or Metro where PC was the lead platform.

Ive got the cash and my RMA time is up. My 7950 gets bad microstutter on skyrim and I want to play it modded without it skipping a frame when loading stuff.

It says only a 30 day return policy. I've had it for a year.

I just wanna make sure that if I do buy a 670, is if it'll be a good card aswell as never frame skipping in skyrim. I hate when you'll be running around, it'll load a nearby dungeon or a group of wolves and the game pushes you forward a step and drops a couple frames.
