NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670
The GeForce GTX 670 is an NVIDIA GPU. This GPU is bad at gaming with a score of 6% in our PC benchmark.
The GeForce GTX 670 has 4 GiB of GDDR5 memory, with a total memory bandwidth of 187 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 256 bits. More memory is beneficial when gaming at high resolutions as the memory needs to store the frame buffer and all the game textures. If you run out of memory, you will experience poor performance as the GPU needs to swap data in and out of the memory as it is used.
In terms of clock speed, the GeForce GTX 670 GPU core runs at a frequency of 915 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 980 MHz. A clock speed is the frequency at which the GPU updates. A higher speed means more processing can happen per cycle. This is useful only when comparing cards of the same generation, as other architectures may process more or less per clock.
As for rendering API support, the GeForce GTX 670 supports up to DirectX 11. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.5 features are supported. Newer APIs are usually more efficient, allowing for better performance in games and better graphical effects.
The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 has a TDP of 170W, this is the amount of heat energy produced by the chip as a byproduct. The higher the TDP, the more heat is produced.
