EVGA GeForce GTS 450 SuperClocked Pictured, Detailed | techPowerUp
A picture of EVGA’s GeForce GTS 450 SuperClocked graphics card made its way to the internet, along with some details. SuperClocked is EVGA’s level-1 factory-overclocked variant. This card features clock speeds of 882 MHz core, 1764 MHz CUDA core, and 950 MHz (3800 MHz effective) memory, which are significantly higher than the NVIDIA reference speeds of 783/1566/900(3600) MHz core/CUDA core/memory. If this is any indication, the GeForce GTS 450 should be a nice treat for overclockers.

While EVGA’s card uses NVIDIA reference-design cooler, it uses a black-colored seemingly-custom PCB. Perhaps it’s developed by EVGA, sticking to NVIDIA’s design-guide but isn’t exactly reference-design. The card from this angle also shows the cooler’s internals. If you’ve noticed the GTX 460 reference cooler from the inside, you’ll notice a GPU base on which there’s a heatsink with spirally-projecting, forked aluminum fins, and heat is also conveyed to two arc-shaped dense aluminum fin blocks on either sides of the heatsink by two heat pipes. With the GTS 450, it looks like the heatsink is completely discoid, with radially-projecting fins all around the core, meaning that it does away with those two additional fin blocks. EVGA’s card features 1 GB of GDDR5 memory across a 128-bit wide memory interface. DonanimHaber expects its price to be US $150-160.
