570 Superclock vs 570

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
There's a "superclocked" version of the EVGA GTX 570 available for $20 more than the regular 570. But what would be the difference between buying the superclocked version, and buying a regular 570 and manually turning up the clock speed?

They just said superclocked to make it sound really cool when it's only overclocked. No such thing as superclocked. Just OC one by yourself.

They have a different bios.
Otherwise the cards are the exact same. EVGA doesn't even bin them.

The only binning evga does is for a couple of the really high-end cards and even that binning is lame in comparison.

I bought one that is superclocked and another that is regular. I had to flash both cards to get the fan profile to do 30-100% and they're both stable at 901 core. In my case, I just paid an extra $20 for the same result. Your mileage may vary.

Unfortunately, nothing is guaranteed when it comes to overclocking. There's a chance that if you buy a regular 570 it won't overclock a single MHz more on the core (although chances of that are very unlikely). Conversely, there's just as much of a chance that a vanilla card will overclock much higher than a Superclock could.

The way I see it, Superclock cards (and any factory overclocked cards for that matter) are meant for people who do not want to mess around with overclocking and would rather keep the cards as they came from the factory. Therefore, paying the extra $20 is a guarantee to have a card that is faster than the vanilla variant, and in the event it ever does break, EVGA will take it back and replace it with a similar card. However, if you're not averse to getting your hands "dirty", you can easily save the money and do it yourself as EVGA is pretty lax about overclocking anyway, so long as you're not doing some hard volt modding to the card. wink.gif
