eVGA GeForce GTX 465 SC review -
The GeForce GTX 465 from NVIDIA launched a good week or two ago. A reasonably interesting graphics cards as despite it is based on the initial 40nm Fermi GF100 architecture, NVIDIA managed to put a product out on the market, that does not run very hot and is not at all noisy. A Fermi product that should be more affordable yet has less active shader processors at it's disposal and the memory configuration is now brought down towards 1024 MB (gDDR5/256-bit). This all means that several other shader clusters inside that GPU have been disabled, on a card that looks like the Siamese twin of the GeForce GTX 470.
Currently we get a lot of requests from AIBs to get these cards reviewed. So last week we showed you the products from Point of View and SLI results, and in this round we take a look at eVGA's offering.
eVGA will be putting a lot of SKUs on the market based in several gradations. We'll have a look in particular at the GeForce GTX 465 SC model, with SC short for Super Clocked. The SuperClock editions are typically pre-overclocked offerings from eVGA with a nice and hefty overclock, all done at default for you. This time around we find ourselves a little puzzled as to why eVGA put a 'Super Clocked' edition logo on this product as really, the pre-overclock is so small that you'll hardly even notice a performance difference over the baseline product. It kind of weird to see that though, as the the SC model can really reach extreme clock frequencies as we'll show you later on in our manual overclocking session.
So all in all we'll have a lot to talk about ! Have a peek at the product, and then head onwards to the next page where we'll go a little deeper into the architecture that is empowering the GeForce GTX 465.
In this review we peek at the EVGA GeForce GTX 770 SC (SuperClocked) edition. This model graphics card comes with a factory overclock and the new ACX cooler. Overall the card is sitting in-between the GeForce GTX 680 and GeForce GTX 780 , with its 1111 MHz core clock frequency. We take the latest games and do some FCAT testing as well.
EVGA GeForce GTX 780 SC ACX review
Today a review the EVGA GeForce GTX 780 SC ACX edition. The Superclocked model comes with a nice factory tweak and that all new Sleeve bearing fan based ACX cooler. Overall the card is almost as fast as a GeForce GTX Titan, 100% cool and 100% silent. We test the product with the hottest games like Metro: Last light, Battlefield 3, Sleeping Dogs, Far Cry 3, Medal of Honor Warfighter, Hitman Absolution and many more.
EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost SC edition review
In this article we review the EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost SC edition review with that SC for superclocked. The product is fairly reference looking but does come with EVGA's own styled cooler, it has 2GB of memory with both that memory and the core baseclock slightly overclocked quite significant.
EVGA GeForce GTX 660 SC review
We review the EVGA GeForce GTX 660 SC aka SuperClocked edition. as the name implies it is already factory overclocked for you with a 1046 MHz baseclock that can boost towards 1111 MHz.
