The iChill GeForce GTX 670 HerculeZ 3000 being priced at $449, we want to compare it with an AMD Radeon HD 7970, an HD 7970 GHz Edition, and a GeForce GTX 680 version from ASUS. Each of these opponents is benchmarked at its default clock rates whereas the Inno3D, being a lower-class product, will try to match them while overclocked. We’ll publish screenshots with results for some tests (at the default clock rates on the left and at the overclocked frequencies on the right).
The Inno3D iChill GeForce GTX 670 HerculeZ 3000 surprises us with its 3DMark 2011 performance as its score, even at its default clock rates, equals that of the GeForce GTX 680. When overclocked, the Inno3D even wins this test!
Metro 2033: The Last Refuge
We see the same picture in this game as in the previous test:
So, the overclocked GeForce GTX 670 easily beats the GeForce GTX 680 as well as both versions of Radeon HD 7970 (at their default clock rates, of course).
Aliens vs. Predator (2010)
The Inno3D iChill GeForce GTX 670 HerculeZ 3000 looks good in Aliens vs. Predator (2010) and even wins the easiest test mode. In the other three test modes the overclocked GTX 670 is only inferior to the AMD Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition.
