EVGA GeForce GTX 670 Superclocked Graphics Card Reviews
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
Hardware Canucks and Guru3D have reviewed the new EVGA GeForce GTX 670 Superclocked, which features an improved heatsink and 6% overclock over the reference design.
Let's see what they had to say:
- Hardware Canucks:
"With that being said, we feel that EVGA packed in just enough of an improvement to make this card worthwhile. Its clock speeds may not turn any heads but the subtle upgrades that went into addressing our concerns with the reference version deserve some major credit. Instead of slapping on a heatsink that exhausts heat directly into your case, EVGA upgraded the cooler specifications without affecting the exhaust-style setup of the reference design.Click here to read the full review.
But is the Superclocked really worth $20 more than the reference design? We certainly think so. Its 5% premium translates into 4-5% higher framerates along with an improved heatsink, EVGAs legendary customer service, a transferable warranty and more than enough overclocking headroom to satisfy just about anyone. Thats a tradeoff were more than willing to make, and so should you."
"EVGA has a solid offering in their hands with the GeForce GTX 670 SC edition and that isn't a hard think to accomplish as the GTX 670 all by itself already is a really nice product. It's a product that really is hard to dislike. We do feel it's pre-overclocked a little on the shy side compared to what we have seen from the competition.Click here to read the full review.
Realistically though we think EVGA is keeping room in their lineup for other faster clocked SKUs. Overall the performance sits in-between a GTX 670 reference and the GTX 680 reference, and that's nothing to be ashamed about alright. The GeForce GTX 670 SC is a very nice performer that is very capable for 1920x1080/1200 and the newest games."
Thanks to the refinements EVGA has done, the GeForce GTX 670 SC is easily worth the small price premium over a reference design model.
