In Futuremark 3DMark11 with the performance preset we found the EVGA GeForce GTX 670 SC had a score of P9002. Once we overclocked the already overclocked card an additional 130MHz on the core and 56MHz on the memory we were able to break past 10k with a score of P10065! Enough to blow past the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 by ~300 3DMarks!
In the game title Just Cause 2 we found the that overclocking the EVGA GeForce GTX 670 SC helped boost the frame rate significantly! At 1280×1024 we saw a 2.5% performance improvement, followed by 8.1% at 1920×1080 and 12.2% at 2560×1600. Considering this a free performance boost on an already overclocked card, speaks volumes!
In Metro 2033 our gains ranged from 1.9% at 2560×1600, 3% at 1280×1024, up to 4.4% at 1920×1080. These performance gains aren’t as high as in some of our tests, but can you really complain about free performance?
The final game title that we benchmarked the EVGA GeForce GTX 670 SC overclocked on is Battlefield3. The performance at 1280×1024 jumped from 102.4 fps up to 111 fps! That’s a jump of 8.4%! At 1920×1080 we saw a gain of 8.3% and 2560×1600 jumped by 10.6%!
