While most GeForce 8800 GTX cards are all based on the same product, with the exact same specs, EVGA has taken the 8800 GTX a step ahead. They cherry picked cards that can run high GPU and memory speeds and engineered a card that is running at higher clocks right out of the box.
The GPU clock has been increased from 575 MHz to 626 MHz and memory is now running at 2000 MHz DDR instead of 1800 MHz. This will definitely give you a healthy performance boost, especially at higher resolutions.
Not only the clocks have been bumped, the whole cooling concept has been improved as well. A number of modifications were made to the cooler so that it can handle the increased heat load. For example a metal back plate has been added to dissipate additional heat on the back of the GPU.
