GeForce GTX 670 vs Iris Xe comparison

In our benchmarks, the Iris Xe beats the GeForce GTX 670 in gaming performance.

Our database shows that the GeForce GTX 670 has a significantly higher core clock speed. This is the frequency at which the graphics core is running at. While not necessarily an indicator of overall performance, this metric can be useful when comparing two GPUs based on the same architecture. Despite this, the Iris Xe has a slightly higher boost clock speed: the maximum frequency the chip can reach if power delivery and thermals allow.

In addition, the Iris Xe has a significantly lower TDP at 15 W when compared to the GeForce GTX 670 at 170 W. TDP (Thermal Design Power) measures total heat output from the chip.

In conclusion, all specs and GPU benchmarks considered, will recommend the Iris Xe over the GeForce GTX 670.
