    Having begun its GeForce GTX 275 lineup with two cards: the 896 MB base-model (896-P3-1170-AR) and its 1792 MB twin (017-P3-1175-AR), EVGA sought to expand it with factory-overclocked models with its usual overclock-grading scheme. The first in its series is the SuperClocked (SC) model (896-P3-1171-AR). The card features the design and color-theme EVGA used for its GeForce GTX 260 55 nm series. It features 240 stream processors, 896 MB of GDDR3 memory across a 448-bit wide interface, and support for 3-way SLI.

    Featuring a tier-one factory overclock, the card comes with clock speeds of 648 MHz (core), 1458 MHz (shader) and 2376 MHz (memory), against the reference clock speeds of 633/1404/2268 MHz (core/shader/memory). Put on pre-order by the EVGA store, the card is set to retail for US $269.99.

    15mhz is a superclock? Why do they even bother doing stuff like this.

    100MHz is classed as a "SuperClocked" card, not 15MHz. LOL.

    EVGA's grading schemes include SC/SuperClocked (tier-1), SSC/SuperSuperClocked (tier-2) and FTW/ForTheWin (tier-3). +100 MHz typically falls into the the FTW domain.

    The only SC card I bought was my 7900 GT, and it was from 450 to 580...HMMM. Aren't the SC and SSC versions supposed to have a bit higher voltages too?

    Yes, they do. The SSC variant can have 5% higher core voltage.
