The new GeForce GTX 670 delivers excellent performance in our first semi-synthetic benchmark. It is a mere 8-12% behind the GeForce GTX 680 and can easily bridge this gap by being overclocked to 1070/7028 MHz. The AMD Radeon HD 7950 is outperformed by as much as 20%!
The same goes for the newer version of the benchmark except that the gaps between the graphics cards are larger. For example, the GeForce GTX 670 is now 23-25% ahead of the Radeon HD 7950 and as much as 50% faster than the GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448.

The GeForce GTX 670 is still ahead of the Radeon HD 7950, although the gap is smaller than in the previous three tests. When overclocked, the new card can challenge and even overtake the GeForce GTX 680.
