EVGA GeForce GTX 690 - Back to top
Recommended - Fudzilla"Although this is a dual GPU graphics card, we were pleased with overclocking. Reference GPU Base clock is 915MHz, but we used EVGAÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s Precision X to boost it +135MHz. We had even more fun with the memory and pushed it from reference 1502MHz to 1752MHz. One thing is for certain, GTX 690 is the best high-end card weÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ve had on our test, which makes our award a no-brainer, really."
Top Pick - Guru3D"The sheer amount of performance you gain from the EVGA GeForce GTX 690 is just massive... the raw performance will make a lot of end-users happy ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ especially the ones that game at uber high-resolutions, multiple-monitors or 3D Stereo admirers."
EVGA GeForce GTX 680 SC Signature 2 - Back to top
Recommended - Xbitlabs"The GeForce GTX 680 SC Signature 2 features an improved power system and comes with increased GPU and memory clock rates which help it be an average 6-7% faster than the reference GTX 680. The high-efficiency and quiet cooler, numerous accessories and 3-year warranty should also be mentioned among its advantages."
EVGA GeForce GTX 680 SC Signature - Back to top
Recommended - Fudzilla"EVGAs GTX 680 SC Signature is one of the fastest air cooled GTX 680 cards around. Its GPU runs at 1086MHz and the memory at 1552MHz (6208MHz effectively). In comparison, reference clocks for GTX 680 cards are 1006/1502MHz GPU/memory. EVGAs GTX 680 SC Signature card is ready for additional overclocking as well, since it has one 8-pin connector and one 6-pin connector, instead of two 6-pin connectors found on the reference card. There is also an additional phase for PWM regulation."
Elite + Silver - Vortez"If you are after a scorchingly fast graphics card that not only looks the part but also built to the very highest standards, all wrapped up in a package that has a service second to none, then you will struggle to find a better card than the EVGA Signature Superclocked."
EVGA GeForce GTX 680 SC - Back to top
Five stars - OCAHOLIC"The recommendation for this card is quite simple: If you're looking for factory overclocked GTX 680 which is capable of running very silent, then this is the perfect card for you. The EVGA GTX 680 Superclocked gets very good five out of five stars"
EVGA GeForce GTX 680 Classified 4GB - Back to top
Innovation - Hexus"EVGA's finest air-cooled example is the Classified 4GB, equipped with a fully-custom PCB, cooler, double-sized framebuffer, a decent dose of overclocking, and potential for hardware-based voltage adjustment. Cool, quiet and eminently fast in the out-of-the-box guise, Classified is a card whose potential can only truly be unlocked by serious enthusiasts; users who dally with the EVBot controller and dial-in obscene voltages while utilising the type of cooling any sane person would find crazy."
Recommended - Guru3D"The end result is a card that performs well, there's not a game out there that it can't deal with. Anno 2070 at the best quality settings and 4xAA pushes near 100 frames per second on average at 1920x1200, and still 60 fps at 2560X1600. In Crysis 2 we end at an average of 66 FPS in 1920x1200 with Ultra quality settings and that high resolution texture package and 4x AA. Battlefield 3 is another example, with all eye candy opened up in game and again at 4xAA the card still pushes 59 FPS at 19x12 and that makes it the amongst the fastest single GPU based graphics card on the market."
EVGA GeForce GTX 670 SC - Back to top
Approved - Overclockers"It performs so well and at such a good price, I would recommend this GPU over any other card out there, even the GTX 680. Another no-brainer Approved stamp for EVGA!"
Recommended - Fudzilla"EVGA was right on time for the GTX 670 launch with its Superclocked card, which comes overclocked to 967MHz and its memory at 1552MHz (6208MHz effectively)"
Editor's Choice - Legit Reviews"The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 has become the card to have if you are looking in the $400 price range and want the best of everything!"
Golden - Hardware Secrets"The SuperClocked model from EVGA was up to 9% faster than the stock GeForce GTX 670 in our tests."
Tom's Hardware - Tom's Hardware"In most applications, the overclocked EVGA card is able to edge out a stock GeForce GTX 680."
Recommended - Guru3D"Overall the card is just golden for the 1920x1080 and 1920x1200 range in monitor resolution, there's not a game out there that it can't deal with at resolution. Anno 2070 at the best quality settings and 4xAA pushes 79 frames per second on average at 1920x1200, and still 51 fps at 2560X1600."
EVGA GeForce GTX 670 FTW Signature 2 - Back to top
Recommended - Fudzilla"The Signature 2 cooler delivers a great balance between noise and temperature. The card is cool and almost inaudible when working at factory overclock"
EVGA GeForce GTX 670 FTW - Back to top
Recommended - Fudzilla"At the end of the day, it's clear that EVGA's GTX 670 For The Win is in fact a winner. The factory overclock ensured that the card scores really close to the GTX 680, which is quite appealing, especially after considering the difference in price. When buying any graphics card, especially the factory overclocked cards, we usually look at the cooling first. In many cases you'll get higher clocks and improved performance at the expense of silence. This is not the case with EVGA's GTX 670 FTW, which remains silent in pretty much any scenario."
PERFORMANCE - HEXUS"EVGA's GeForce GTX 670 FTW is a rock-solid card that would fit well into almost any high-end build When evaluating in-game frame rate, operating temperature and graphics-card noise, the GeForce GTX 670 performs like a premium GeForce GTX 680."
EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti SC - Back to top
Great Vaule - Alienbabel"If you are buying a powerful upper-midrange video card right now that is perfect for 1920ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬â€1200 resolutions while still being able to handle 2560ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬â€1600 as well as being great bang for buck, the EVGA GTX 660 Ti Superclock is an easy choice for only ten dollars more than the reference design. We feel it deserves ABTÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s Great Value award since it performs well against competing cards that are currently priced out of its class."
Golden - Hardware Secrets"The GeForce GTX 660 Ti was between 7% and 49% faster than the GeForce 560 Ti, and up to 36% faster than the GeForce GTX 570."
Editors Choice - Hi-Tech Legion"The EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti SC is positioned to take over the mainstream gaming market. The EVGA 660 Ti SC combines enthusiast performance at a mainstream price. Mirroring the GTX 670, the 660 Ti is loaded with all of the same core features. The 600 Ti uses the same Kepler GK104 GPU that features 1344 CUDA cores and 7 SMX units. EVGA has overclocked this model, so the core base speed is set to 980MHz making the boost 1059 MHz."
Approved - Overclockers"It has low power consumption and by many measures, gives a thorough beat-down to the competition's HD 7870, occasionally even coming out ahead of the more expensive HD 7950."
Recommended - Guru3D"EVGA has a solid offering with their SC model. The factory clock makes it perform in neighborhood of the GeForce GTX 670. The cooler does what it needs to do, it's silent and keeps the card at roughly 75 Degrees C under full game load. If you need a little extra, there is tweaking room left. With all tweaks applies the product will max out at roughly 1150~1250 MHz based on the boost frequency"
Top Value - Fudzilla"We've seen that the GTX 660 Ti SC offers quality performance at 1920x1080. At this resolution, it's even capable of beating the HD 7950."
