Nvidia launch GeForce GTX 670

Nvidia's GeForce GTX 670 has been launched, marking the third device to include Kepler graphics architecture.

Nvidia has launched the GeForce GTX 670, the third graphics card from the manufacturer that uses its exciting, next-generation Kepler graphics architecture.

The GTX 670 is expected to bring incredible price-performance as well as impressive power efficiency and an operating sound that is essentially inaudible, allowing for the quietest PC performance for gamers.

It is based around the same architecture as the recently launched Nvidia GTX 680, which is the most powerful single graphics card ever to be released. However, the GTX 670 still offers incredible performance at an affordable price, beginning at just $399 (£250).

The card sits in a flexible 9.5-inch long frame to give it a sleek and exciting look, while it improves on the gaming performance of its nearest competitor, the AMD HD Radeon 7950, by 45 per cent. It matches the capabilities of the competition's more expensive flagship model in 25 of the world's most popular and demanding PC games and benchmarks.

At the same time it consumes 18 per cent less power than the AMD rival with its 170 watt power supply, which is a testament to the effectiveness of the Kepler architecture.

The 28-nanometer process technology uses a first-generation high-k metal gate (HKMG) technology and second generation Silicon Germanium straining that reduces power consumption to make for a more efficient card.

Nvidia's launch of the GTX 670 comes in a great week of mixed news for the firm as its profits fell, but were better than Wall Street's expectations. First-quarter revenue dropped to $924.9 million from $962 million, when Wall Street expected it to fall to $916 million.

Revenue has been hurt by a drop in manufacturing capacity shortage for the Kepler architecture 28-nanometer computer graphics chips.

The company has, however, invested heavily in expanding away from graphics card chips to focus some resources on mobile device chip development.ADNFCR-1220-ID-801361556-ADNFCR
