10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

Based on current gaming requirements the GeForce GTX 670 Gainward 2GB Edition is considered one of the weakest cards and wont meet modern AAA game specs.

This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 11.

Here we take a closer look at the various performances across 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions for the GeForce GTX 670 Gainward 2GB Edition.

Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is Resident Evil 8 which we saw got weak frame rates of 0 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Battlefield 2042, which is predicted to get 0 FPS under tests.

We move on to 1440p, and predict that Far Cry 6 will deliver weak FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. Next we have Resident Evil 8 running on GeForce GTX 670 Gainward 2GB Edition which gets L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS.
