Performance recapAlthough individual game results are obviously worth looking at when you want to gauge performance in a specific game, we have also calculated a performance index based on all tests with the same weight for each game. We set an index of 100 to the GeForce GTX 580:
Hold the mouse over the graph to classify the cards by performance at 1920x1080.
On average, the GeForce GTX 670 is 4% up on the Radeon HD 7950, a lead which climbs to 9% with a particularly good sample model such as ours where the GPU is able to go up to 1084 MHz, as against an official GPU Boost clock of 980 MHz.
The GeForce GTX 670 is only 9% down on the GeForce GTX 680 and this deficit falls to 6% when we take into account the maximum turbo clock of the two samples tested.
Note that the trend between the GeForce GTX 680 and Radeon HD 7970 has been reversed here, in favour of the Radeon, principally for two reasons:
- AMD has at last corrected (after 5 months!) a performance problem in Batman AC with MSAA on.
- Nvidia’s cards suffer from a performance issue in the latest version of Total War Shogun 2.
