EVGA GeForce GTX 570 Superclocked Video Card Review

Today, NVIDIA introduces the GeForce GTX 480 killer. You might be thinking, 'Wait - what was that card we saw last month?' And you'd be right to think so, until you see the price and performance of the new GeForce GTX 570 - tested here today in EVGA Superclocked edition form. Rawr. With a $369 MSRP, EVGA's GTX 570 SC is $20 more than the standard GeForce GTX 570, but features a healthy overclock out of the box. With the introduction of the GeForce GTX 570, the GTX 480 is now End Of Life (EOL) and existing stocks will be run down. Another casualty of the GTX 570 is the GTX 465, which also bids adieu. NVIDIA's Christmas line up consists of two new and one newish, for the enthusiast and high performance gamer.

Existing stocks of GeForce GTX 465 and 480 will be run down and sold at prices driven by the market - prices that will stay firm if demand is high, and drop if demand tails off; if you've been contemplating dumping your 465/480 for a new card then don't wait too long, or risk watching the pricing floor fall out from under you.
