Nvidia GTX 570 review, faster than 480, HD 5870

Review: Quiet, great performance, great holiday gift
Nvidia is set to launch its Geforce GTX 570, the second fastest single GPU graphics card to date. We are sure that many gamers are waiting for this card as it promises to deliver great performance with good power/thermals. The suggested etail price for the Geforce GTX 570 is $329 (without VAT), €349 (including VAT), £289 (including VAT), but we will likely find retail boards from Nvida`s partners at various price points.

Putting the same GPU used in GTX 580 to good use, the GTX 570 is 25% faster on average than the not-so-popular GTX 470, but that is not all this card is capable of. In fact, the GTX 570 packs enough punch to beat the HD 5870 and even the GTX 480.

We’re talking about a card based on the GF110, currently the fastest GPU on the market. Compared to its more powerful sibling, GTX 570`s arsenal is somewhat weaker. The new card has one cluster less totaling at 480 shaders, instead of 512 shaders on GTX 580.  The GTX 570 sports 40 ROPs, 60 texture units and 320-bit memory interface. In comparison, the GTX 580 comes with 48 ROPs, 64 texture units, and 384-bit memory interface whereas the GTX 480 has 48 ROPs, 60 texture units and 384-bit memory interface.

Thanks to the same number of shaders and higher clocks, the GTX 570 offers improved performance at better power/thermals compared to the GTX 480. Furthermore, all this now comes at a lower price, which is something that many Nvidians should look forward to.

The Geforce GTX 570 boasts 732MHz for the GPU, 1464MHz for the shaders and 950MHz for the memory (3800MHz effectively). The card has 1280MB of GDDR5 memory paired up with a 320-bit bus. It has two 6-pin power connectors and 219W TDP compared to 244W TDP on GTX 580.

The GTX 570 retained the vapor chamber cooling used on GTX 580 cards, and we must admit that we like it as it’s quiet and efficient.
