Default EVGA Geforce GTX 570 Superclocked Review Comment Thread

Late last year, NVIDIA released their GTX 570 - a card that proved itself to be the perfect solution to AMD"s upcoming HD 6900-series since it ended up outperforming even the GTX 480.

That is correct Spike, all AR models are lifetime warranty.

Thumbs up Good review.

At least it didn't ship with a completely insignificant OC..... You final overclock was about the same as the initial 570 review you did back on Dec. 7th.Core Speed: 861Mhz,Processor Clock: 1722Mhz,Memory Speed: 4224Mhz (QDR) for those of you who might be lazy.
I'm glad you called out EVGA on the -AR, -TR warranty BS.

Not calling out EVGA here but rather the retailers who stock the -TR branded cards. It is up to them to put their buys in and in my opinion there seems to be a number of them south of the border that are averse to stocking lifetime warranty supported products.

How much voltage did you use to achieve that sort of overclock SKY?

I purchased my EVGA GTX570 (Regular non overclocked model since I'll overclock it myself) when I was in the U.S. earlier this month, January, and it is a TR card. I was disappointed since it came from a very recognized vendor just 15min away from where I stay in Houston, Directron.

Still it is an amazing card & I am enjoying it.

Great card and great review. I absolutely love mine. It stays cool and quiet while devouring any game I throw at it. I bought mine soon after its release at Memory express it's an AR model.
