They are guaranteed to run at 1GHz... for a year. Gigabyte's comes with the shortest warranty of the bunch, which is something to consider if you don't upgrade every generation.

Most of the MSI models seem to be able to hit 1GHz as well (I don't know about EVGA but with a reference cooler heat could be a problem). So with that in mind MSI gets my vote for now.

Why would you ever pay $20 more for a factory overclock?

+1 for MSI (also factory overclocked but for freeeeeeee).

Well, some of them have been binned. IIRC, the SOC from Giga goes through a nice bin process. So you could achieve lower power consumption w/ higher clock than your average luck of the draw pick.

You sure? All of them run at 1.15V I think, and all Gigabyte needs to do is slap that BIOS on the reference 560 and see if it runs (not a particularly low probability of it failing to be stable at that high voltage).

"Like most of these card makers, Gigabyte cites several factors that purportedly contribute to its product's superiority over the average reference design. Those include higher-quality components, rigorous testing of chips during their sorting into different speed grades, a custom board design (9.5" long, or half an inch beyond the reference card), and a *****in' cooler with quad heatpipes and dual fans."

Could be marketing fluff, but I do remember reading an article about EVGA's binning process.

EDIT: Found it. EVGA Binning process
