First glimpse of EVGA GTX 570 Superclocked

Preview: 65MHz factory overclock
Two days ago Nvidia launched the GTX 570, the second addition to the Geforce 500 series. Since Nvidia gave its partners a green light for overclocking, the day of the launch saw many factory overclocked cards. One of the fastest so far is the EVGA GTX 570 Superclocked, which boasts a 797MHz GPU. This means that EVGA pushed the GPU by 65MHz.

EVGA GeForce GTX 570 Superclocked specification:

Part Number               012-P3-1572
Core Clock Speed        797MHz
Processing Cores         480
Memory Clock Speed    3900MHz
Memory Bandwidth      156GB/sec
Shader Clock Speed    1594MHz
Bus                              PCI-E 2.0
Interface                     DVI-I, DVI-I, Mini-HDMI
Product Warranty       10 years upon registration

As is usual for EVGA, Superclocked comes with reference Nvidia cooler. Thankfully, Nvidia did a great job this time around and managed to implement vapor chamber tech resulting in really good performance. Intensive operation won’t see EVGA GTX 570 SC‘s temperatures exceed 86°C, and while we didn’t consider the fan to bee too loud, it was clearly audible. Note however that we were pretty satisfied with noise levels, especially when compared to the GTX 480.

The GTX 570 Superclocked‘s performance is great. Thanks to the factory overclock, this card is faster than the GTX 480.

Although the GTX 570 Superclocked is overclocked already, there’s still room for further overclocking. Note however that this is only possible if you decide to increase the core voltage, as default 987mV wouldn’t allow the GPU to exceed 810MHz.


Apart from the Superclocked version, EVGA launched the plain GTX 570 at reference clocks. Both cards will be bundled with EVGA's Precision OC software with GTX 570 skin, free limited edition EVGA gaming poster and 3DMark 11.The EVGA GTX 570 Superclocked card is curently listed with a lowest price set at €370, here.

Here are some preliminary results – stay tuned as the full review will follow soon.

I easily overclocked my "normal" (not superclocked 570) to 840@4250 (stock: 732@3800). That's over 100MHz! With air cooling.

Power draw is not much more compared to non OC.

Great card!

65MHz is superclocked?

Nice performance but....

Using these numbers to compare to Fuad's story about the HD6970 yesterday just further shows how inaccurate his numbers were.

3D Mark 11, all tests, show the Reference 570 less than 1% faster than 480. It also shows the Super-clocked 570 between 5-8% faster. 3DMark 11 also shows the 580 between 10 and 20% faster than the 480.

So given that Fuad tells us the 6970 will be between 10 and 20% faster than 480, that makes it even with the 580 and ahead of the 570. A Far cry (Pun intended!) from Fuad's statement that the 6970 will be a little slower than 570 and a lot slower than 580.

LOL, it is if you speak fluent Marketing Hyperbole....

3dmark11 is underoptimised, don't base any judgements on it until nvidia releases their new drivers.

65Mhz for a 1st stage overclock is still better than what most other brands can offer... :)

But what the hell happend to the SSC's?
