The Card

The new ACX cooler looks great and you can see the dual fan setup. Behind you can see an absolutely massive heatsink that goes from the top to the bottom and the front to the back. Across the top and the bottom you can see the brand and model on a gold backplate, while the right hand side shows off the ACX Active Cooling Xtreme logo on the edge.

We can see that the power connection setup is the same as the reference design with a single 8-pin and 6-pin PCIe power connector at the back. Heading to the front you can see two SLI connectors. Also while looking across the top of the card you can see the extension of that gold plate across the top of the card along with a closer look at the massive heatsink that is present across the whole card.

The I/O side really doesn't hold any surprises at all. On the far right we've got two Dual-Link DVI connectors in the form of a DVI-D and a DVI-I. As for the bottom left hand side can see a HDMI and DisplayPort connector to round things off. You can also see a number of holes in the backplate to help as much air escape out the back of the case as possible.

 

 

Specifications

 

Being part of the SuperClocked series means that out of the box the card comes overclocked. What we love, though, is that EVGA is one of those companies that doesn't just slap on some fancy looking "overclocked" title and then bump the core up by 20MHz.

 

Instead, looking below, you can see the core comes in at 1111MHz, which is up from the stock 1046MHz. Of course that means the boost clock has also been increased from the standard 1085MHz to a more impressive 1163MHz. Like we see from most companies EVGA has chosen to not touch the memory clocking leaving the 2GB of GDDR5 at its stock 7010MHz QDR clock, but that doesn't mean we're going to ignore it.

Looking above you can see we managed to push the core up to an even 1200MHz, which pushes the boost clock to 1252MHz. This compared to the reference card which we overclocked to 1153MHz on the core and pushed the boost clock up to 1192MHz.

 

As for the 2GB of GDDR5 we managed to bump that up to 7600MHz QDR. This is 64MHz lower than what we saw out of the reference card, but it's worth nothing that an extra 10MHz on the core gives us a much greater gaming performance increase than 20MHz QDR extra on the memory.
