Our video card content category lately has been truly dominated with some extremely high-end setups ranging from $1,000 - $2,000. Today we take everything back to what a lot of people consider normal, and move over to the mid $100 price bracket, where the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost GPU sits.
We've looked at a number of AMD Radeon HD 7790 and GTX 650 Ti Boost models since we saw them lunch last month. On the AMD side we've looked at versions from Sapphire, GIGABYTE and ASUS - all of which have done a good job of impressing us with strong out of the box performance.
As for the NVIDIA side we've looked at a reference version card running at stock clock speeds, overclocked and in SLI mode. Along with the reference card looked at in a number of ways, we've also checked out retail options from Palit, Gainward and MSI.
Today, though, it's all about the EVGA version that falls under the SuperClocked name. A name that we've seen a bit lately thanks to the arrival of the EVGA GTX TITAN SuperClocked 6GB that we completely fell in love with. While we'd normally move from here into the box and bundle, like the GTX TITAN we looked at recently, we've unfortunately got just the video card on hand today.
So from here we'll move straight onto the card before looking at the specifications to see what kind of overclock the "SuperClocked" title brings with it. We'll then take a quick look at our test system, talk about the setups that you'll see in our graphs today, and then get stuck straight into the performance numbers.
