EVGA GTX 560 Ti SC
When the behemoth Nvidia GTX 580 launched, we found it to be a very impressive card, having corrected the power, heat, and noise problems that plagued its previous generation predecessors. Following that powerhouse card came the GTX 570, lowering the performance and price just a bit while managing to hold off AMD’s flagship 6970. And taking things one step further, Nvidia is looking to continue their success with the GTX 560 Ti, bringing performance to the masses.
Beyond the reference design card, some manufacturers are taking what appears to already be an impressive product and pushing things further, with custom heatsinks for lower temperatures or factory overclocked settings for enthusiasts who want to extract the most our of their graphics card. EVGA is one such company known for pushing high overclocks on their products and today’s GTX 560 Ti Superclocked (SC) version is no exception.
While this SC model isn’t the fastest in the EVGA stable (there are still the SSC and FTW that boast even higher clocks), it does feature a strong factory overclock for a respectable price, an alluring combination for gamers on a modest budget. At a price of about $260, the SC doesn’t cost very much more than the reference Nvidia card, but it comes with much better performance.
With some great gaming performance and very impressive overclocking headroom under the hood, the only question remaining is: just how fast is the EVGA GTX 560 Ti SC? Let’s find out.
