So, above you can see the GeForce GTX 570, the reference model. It will become available for roughly 349 USD / EUR though we expect it to level out at 329 USD/EUR after a few weeks. You get the basics like the graphics card, PEG converter cables, manual and a demo and driver CD, though bundles will vary with AIB/AIC partners.
Overall a nice and dark looking card. Let's look at the card from several different photographic viewpoints. The GTX 570 card is quite good looking with the black colored monitor connectors and then that new cooler which is vapor chamber based. One chamber on the GPU leads directly to aluminum fins where the fan will blow air to cool it off. The cooling works decent, but the biggest plus... it's very silent.
The GeForce GTX 570 comes with 1.2GB memory. The reference cards are clocked at a 732 MHz core frequency, 1464 MHz on the shader processors and the gDDR5 memory runs at 950 MHz. This is gDDR5 thus the memory runs at quad data-rate, thus effectively you may quadruple that number, hence you'll spot it clocked at 3800 MHz effective everywhere.
Connectivity wise we see two dual-link DVI connectors supporting all high-resolution monitors and all the way to the left you can see a mini HDMI connector. Mini HDMI was chosen to be able to position the connector at the lower half, so that the top half can exhaust hot air.
