Did I get mailed the wrong card?

It took me 6 months to notice but I'm pretty sure that EVGA mailed me the wrong card.

I just looked up my Newegg Invoice info and it confirms that I bought EVGA's 896-P3-1170-AR Video Card which is a GTX 275 at standard clocks.

In my venture of overclocking, I have learned that these are the default clocks for my video card: 648 Core, 1458 Shader, 1188 (2376) Memory, according to EVGA Precision. These are coincidentally the same clocks that EVGA puts on their 896-P3-1171-AR or the GTX 275 'superclocked'.

Did EVGA send me a better card than what I paid for?


The box didn't mentioned anything about superclocked, but when I set the card to 'Default all' in EVGA Precision it defaults to the clocks of their superclocked version. GPU-Z also says merely 'GTX 275'; nothing about 'superclocked'.

And not that it has anything to do with this at all, but the OC clocks I could get were 713, 1548, and 1242, respectively. :D 



The GTX 275 clocks, in order of Standard, Superclocked (my card?) and my Overclock.

633 1404 1134x2
648 1458 1188x2
713 1548 1242x2

It happens all the time, when they run out of stock cards resellers tend to ship the closest overclocked version.
