Benchmarks Real world tests of GeForce GTX 670 vs 650

Passmark Industry standard benchmark for overall graphics card performance

3DMark 11, as the name might suggest, makes use of the Microsoft DirectX 11 API and puts every feature of it to use, creating astonishingly realistic visuals.

endeavour. Batman: Arkham City uses the same Unreal Engine by Epic as Batman: Arkham Asylum, but it has, thanks to the engine's modularity, been overhauled and equipped with the latest technologies, including a graphics engine that takes advantage of DirectX 11.
