Review: Reference design, higher clocks



Conclusion

End of 2010 saw the launch of Radeon HD 6970 and Geforce GTX 570 graphics cards, which have proven to be great and definitely serve as a nice reference points for graphics performance. As far HD 6970 and GTX 570 go, they come with pretty much identical performance and pricing. An example of this is EVGA GTX 570 whose clocks are up from 732MHz to 797MHz for the GPU and the memory from 950MHz to 975MHz.

Higher clocks mean improved performance, which is the GTX 570 Superclocked’s main advantage as the card uses reference cooling. Thankfully, Nvidia did a good job by using vapor chamber technology on reference coolers. Despite the overclock, the cooler is not to loud and the temperatures aren’t too high either.

If you’re looking for extra performance, EVGA GTX 570 Superclocked can definitely satisfy your urge. On the other hand, there’s also the option of purchasing EVGA GTX 570 at reference clocks for some €30 less. EVGA GTX 570 Superclocked is currently priced at around €342. You can find both cards listed here.
