EVGA Superclocked & SSC
We received two cards from EVGA. The first card is a relatively simple GTX 1050 Ti that goes under the name of Superclocked Gaming. It's on the shorter side, since it's only 15 centimeters long, however the cooler also only features a single fan. As the name implies, this model comes with an overclock to 1354 MHz base and 1468 boost. This is an increase of about 5% compared to the reference specs.
The GTX 1050 that EVGA sent us is a more luxurious model: the SSC, which stands for Super-Superclocked. It features a dual-fan cooler from the ACX 3.0 series, which features double-ball fan bearings. This type of bearing has a longer lifespan than normal bearings. The fans of course stop spinning when the card is not under load.
Both EVGA's do not require any extra power cables, in contrast to the ASUS cards. The EVGA GTX 1050 SSC costs about 155 pounds, which is a bit more expensive than the Strix OC, while the GTX 1050 Ti SC is relatively cheap.
