No gradeEVGA GeForce GTX 570 Superclocked Video Card Review
Hardware Secrets Golden Award
In our Radeon HD 6970 review, we saw a technical tie between the Radeon HD 6970 and the standard GeForce GTX 570: from the six programs we ran, one was faster on three of them and the other was faster on the other three. The overclocking present in the EVGA GeForce GTX 570 Superclocked, although relatively small, helped to point the tip of the scale in favor of this model from EVGA.The EVGA GeForce GTX 570 and the Radeon HD 6970 achieve similar performance on Call of Duty 4, Aliens vs. Predator and 3DMark 11 (sometimes one was a little bit faster, sometimes the other, but the difference was not significant). However, on the other three games, the EVGA GeForce GTX 570 Superclocked presented a huge advantage: up to 21% faster on Crysis Warhead, up to 28% faster on Far Cry 2, and up to 55% faster on Lost Planet 2.Costing exactly the same thing than the Radeon HD 6970, the EVGA GeForce GTX 570 Superclocked is the video card you should buy if you have USD 370 to spend, being a better option than the standard GeForce GTX 570 (of course you can always buy the standard version and overclock it yourself and save USD 20).
