One of the first three NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 reviews we have coming in droves is from EVGA, who sent us its GeForce GTX 960 SuperSC ACX 2.0+ (or SuperSuperClocked) video card. As I'm based in Australia, EVGA has always been one of those premium brands that has attracted attention from across the pond. I worked in IT retail selling various PC parts, including EVGA video cards, as they were one of the more popular brands that consumers purchased.


EVGA has deployed its new ACX 2.0+ cooler, which we're going to go into detail about later on in the review. But the cooler (I'm sure) will not only perform well, but it looks slick. Two of these cards in SLI are going to look beautiful, that's for sure.




EVGA has four cards in its GeForce GTX 960 line up; the GTX 960 FTW ACX 2.0+, GTX 960 SuperSC ACX 2.0+ (which we have here today), the GTX 960 ACX 2.0+, and finally, the GTX 960 Superclocked. All four cards are built with EVGA's normal eye for extremely good quality, with varying overclocks and coolers.



Quick Specs




As with most GeForce GTX 960 cards, we're not seeing a huge change from the usual layout or specifications apart from the cooling, PCIe power connector and of course, the clock speeds. EVGA has a Base Clock of 1279MHz, with a Boost Clock of 1342MHz. This is compared to NVIDIA's reference spec of 1126MHz for the Base Clock and Boost Clock of 1178MHz. EVGA has performed a decent overclock here, something that should perform well against the competition.


We also have the same 2GB of VRAM on a 128-bit memory bus, with 112.1GB/sec of available memory bandwidth. Display output wise, we have the same three DisplayPort, one HDMI 2.0 and one dual-link DVI that most cards are shipping with from NVIDIA in the 900 series now.



Availability & Price


Better yet, EVGA has a price of just $209.99 for the GeForce GTX 960 SuperSC ACX 2.0+ video card, which is available right now through Amazon, with its Prime service available on it too. Considering the GTX 970 Superclocked ACX 2.0 from EVGA is priced at $342.39 on Amazon, it'll be interesting to see how the card performs against the GTX 970, which is close to half the price.


We'll reach out to EVGA to try and secure one of those, and have a battle between the EVGA GeForce GTX 900 series in the near future.
