Review: Beast with a 109MHz factory overclock

 

Our today's test subject is Point of View / TGT's GTX 570 Beast. Many of our readers already know that TGT is in charge of overclocking Point of View cards and that Beast stands for crème of the crop – the fastest card in its series.

You may recall that the GTX 570 Beast cost around €420 one month ago, which discouraged many from purchasing the card, but you can find the same card today priced at €360, here.

If we look at the GTX 570 Beast’s GPU clock, which stands at 841MHz, it is clear that the 109MHz factory overclock will leave the competitors in the dust. TGT handpicks only the best GPUs that can take anything you throw at them and then some, be it long gaming hours or overclocking. In fact, there’s still room for additional overclocking despite the hefty overclock.

Point of View / TGT Beast specification:
Part Number               TGT-570-A1-BST
Core Clock Speed        841MHz
Processing Cores         480
Memory Clock Speed    3900MHz
Memory Bandwidth      158.4GB/sec
Shader Clock Speed     1682MHz
Bus                           PCI-E 2.0
Interface                   2x dual-link DVI, 1x Mini-HDMI

Running at an impressive 841MHz core clock, the new GTX 570 Beast is available in two versions depending on the choice of the cooler. One features a reference cooler and is a bit cheaper than the second version that features a 9mm slim-line AquaCopper water cooling block. We got the first one and you can see it on the picture below.

Geforce GTX 580 i GTX 570 cards use the GF110, an improved version of the GF100 used on GTX 480 cards.

Compared to the GTX 580 however, GTX 570 comes with one less stream multiprocessor, lower operating clocks, less memory and lower memory interface. Still, none of that prevented the GTX 570 to score similarly to the GTX 480 and still retain superior performance-per-watt ratio. As we already said, GTX 570 Beast beat the rest of the lot when it comes to the factory overclock and the GPUZ screenshot proves it.
