EVGA GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores Classified tested - Overclocking, Thermals, Noise

Review: Limited Edition Product

 

 

EVGA GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores Classified is a factory overclocked graphics card. The GPU runs at 797MHz and the memory at 975MHz (3900MHz effectively). Note that the standard GTX 560 448 Cores card’s GPU runs at 732MHz and the memory at 900MHz (3800MHz effectively).

Provided you aren’t keen on messing with voltages, the maximum GPU overclock is at 845MHz.

After installing the latest MSI Afterburner, we played with GPU voltages. Afterburner shows that EVGA set standard voltage at 1063mV.

Afterburner allows for GPU voltages up to 1100mV. However, overclocking results didn’t drastically improve, not even after setting the voltage to the max.

We left the fans in auto mode, since speeding them up didn’t help achieve better GPU clocks. When running in auto mode, the fans are mostly quiet. We really barely noticed them but manually setting the rpm to 70% will make them too loud.

All in all, the coolers does a good job and temperatures aren’t high. The GTX 570’s GPU, on the other hand, can hit up to 85°C.

EVGA uses a PCB with one 6-pin and one 8-pin connector. We’ve already said that the PCB is mostly that of the GTX 480, which is not half bad – namely, you’ll never experience power shortages. EVGA Classified is slightly faster than the GTX 570 and consumes almost the same.

uhm kinda lousy OC.

pretty much all 570 gtx clocks to at least 925 mhz on 1.1v. i had some at 1 ghz (custom pcbs, but air), and NONE below 900 mhz (i tested like 10-12 different 570's)

maybe these cards aint that good afterall .. they are not even performing 580 stock speeds at max OC, and 570 GTX does that easily - around 875-900 mhz

it's just i think they gonna price too close to 570 gtx to be worth it
