Introduction
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

The GeForce GTX 570 is the latest high-end graphics chip from NVIDIA, and EVGA has released an overclocked model called “Superclocked” or simply “SC” that costs USD 20 more than the standard GeForce GTX 570. At USD 370, the EVGA GeForce GTX 570 Superclocked competes directly with the new Radeon HD 6970, which comes with the same price tag. Which one of the two is the best? Let’s check it out.

EVGA has three lines of overclocked video cards, listed from the lower overclocking level to the highest: Superclocked (SC), Super Superclocked (SSC), and For The Win Edition (FTW). So far EVGA released only an SC model for the GeForce GTX 570, with an 8.9% overclocking on the graphics chip and a tiny 2.6% overclocking on the memory.

In the table below we compare the main specs of the video cards included in our review. They are all DirectX 11 parts.
