EVGA's Newest Fermi Card Sports a Backplate, Custom I/O Bracket

Paul Lilly

The number of Nvidia GeForce GTX 480 videocards in EVGA's stable now sits at four, the latest being the GeForce GTX 480 SuperClocked + w/ High Flow Bracket and Backplate.

Everything that sets this card apart from the rest is laid out in the uber-long naming scheme, starting with the SuperClocked+ frequencies. EVGA goosed the GPU clockspeed from 700MHz to 726MHz, the same as on the vanilla SuperClocked version, and cranked the memory from 3696MHz to 3800MHz, also the same as the standard SuperClocked model.

Unique to this particular card, however is the backplate slapped to the underside of the card. Along with the high flow bracket, EVGA claims temperatures are reduced by up to 7C.

No word on when it will ship, only that it will run $550, at least if purchased direct from EVGA . The graphics maker also sells a reference GeForce GTX 480 for $520, SuperClocked model for $530, and the Hydro Copper FTW version (for water cooling setups) for $650.
