EVGA GTX 1070 Superclocked Review

Introduction

EVGA have been producing Superclocked graphics cards for longer than we care to remember, and they’ve always proved popular as the majority of people are happier having a guaranteed, warranty enabled, factory overclock than having to take their chances with the silicon lottery and possibly damaging it with unconfident overclocking.

The latest version of their highly clocked cards is based around the GTX 1070, a card which we’ve recently seen a few variants of. With performance equal to the GTX 980 Ti, but at a lower cost, lower power draw, better thermals and all the latest nVidia tricks, it’s certainly a worthy contender as the card of choice for the gamer who demands outstanding performance but can’t quite stretch to the GTX 1080.

With a twin fan cooler supporting full lighting and outstanding looks, coupled to a factory EVGA overclock and the excellence of the Pascal GPU, let’s see how the EVGA SC stacks up to the competition.

Technical Specifications

The EVGA matches up to the MSI Gaming X when it comes to clock speed, another 100MHz faster than the nVidia Founders Edition. With 8GB of GDDR5 and support for EVGAs PrecisionX Overclocking tool, there is plenty of extra room should you need to go even faster.
