570 vs 6970 - Page 2

If you run a 2560x1600 (or 1440) resolution the 6970 is a better buy. For 1920x1200 (or 1080) the GTX 570 is about even in benchmarks, but is cheaper, making it the better buy.

Considering most people can't afford a good 30" 2560x1600 monitor, the GTX 570 is going to fly off shelves considering most people spending $350ish on a videocard are probably running a 1920x1080.

The 69XX cards are very good at high resolutions and scale very well in crossfire- making them perfect for eyefinity setups or big monitors. Unfortunately for AMD, single 1920x1080 monitors are the norm, and the GTX 570 is the card to get for that resolution.

I am going to be putting a 570 or a 6970 under water. From what I've seen I think a 570 would be the best bet for me... being that a 580 trumps a 6970 and you can push a 570 to 580 speeds with overclockage... thoughts?

What I wanna know is in the end, will the superclock version have higher core clock than the non superclock version when both are OC'ed?

I think no one knows that for sure. And it is likely to vary from one manufacturer to another, from one model to another, and even from one card to another card of the same model.

But the general consensus is that card manufacturers usually bin (ie handpicking the 'better' chipsets among their stock) their overclocked version.
So, the chance that an overclocked version will have a higher ultimate overclock than a nonOC'ed version is high.

Pretty much this. Thanks mate you saved me the trouble

someone already stated in the threads that evga no longer bin, so the difference between the stock 570 and the sc 570 is just the factory oc'ing.
i don't think (not from personal experience, just logic) that max oc depends on sc/stock versions of the evga gtx 570 (provided they no longer bin of course), i think the 20$ only guarantees you a stable oc @ the shipped clocks. and tbh, i don't think you should push your card to the max anyway, even with vapor chamber and gf110 these cards are just shy of 80 degrees at load

So if overlooking the price difference, it would be more advantageous for me to get the SC model, right?

i would say no, unless you're not planning to OC at all, in which case just spend the extra 20$ and get the SC. if you plan to OC, just go for the stock, those 20$ won't matter.
