Nvidia GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II Edition
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

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

DirectX 11 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2021. In particular we focus on how well the GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II Edition runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 153 games in the list.

Looking at some of the modern popular games people are playing today the GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II Edition is running Resident Evil 8 and delivering weak performances on 1080p Ultra, getting 0 frames per second. Comparing this to Forza Horizon 5 which is predicted to get weak results, where it averages 22 FPS. Another popular game we looked at is FIFA 22, which is predicted to run at 50 frames per second.

One of the growing popular screen resolutions for PC gaming is the wider 1440p.

Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II Edition we get the impression that it is in need of some graphics adjustments to get some stability, which means its not an ideal gaming resolution for this GPU.
