Default Palit 570 GTX Sonic vs Sonic Premium

Hi everyone,

Was wondering if the difference between the Palit gtx 570 sonic and sonic premium was ONLY default clock speeds. If someone knew more about these cards could post that would be wonderful

In other words, could I just flash the bios on the gtx 570 sonic with the sonic premium's and voila, save $20, or just take the safe route and overclock because it seems theres no actual physical differences between them

Product references:
Newegg.ca - palit 570

Any palit 570 sonic owners try overclocking up to the sonic premium's max oc settings?

Those cards are pretty rare around here, and I think they just got out....you'll have to be patient + a little lucky to get an answer...

Yeah.. so far the only e-retailer I shop from that has it is Newegg.. Ive even tried asking a bunch of the smaller shops if they can special order them and give me a competitive price but only via email fire and forget. Hopefully they can match or beat newegg's 349 / 369
