Less than two weeks after its launch we already reviewed a handful of GeForce GTX 570 cards, some that have been customized in some way or another.
Yeah the GeForce GTX 570 is going to be popular, it certainly offers a lot of performance in the high-end segment. As you guys learned by now, the GeForce GTX 480 is officially going EOL (end of life) after its short-lived life, to replace the product NVIDIA has introduced that GeForce GTX 570. A card that is positioned in the 349 EUR price bracket yet offers a massive chunk of high-end DirectX 11 performance alongside good GPU temperatures and noise levels.
A product based on the very same GF110 GPU that empowers the GTX 580, yet with a couple of GPU features cut away, as in the shader domain has been limited towards 480 shader processors, a 320-bit memory bus and notch less memory at 1280MB GDDR5.
Today's offering is a customized model GeForce GTX 570 from the good people at Palit.
They did something really special, they launched a GeForce GTX 570 with what the refer to as a mercury design. The name of the product is tagged under their known Sonic Platinum edition series, and as you guys know that guarantees more features and some extra's. The extra's can be found in the customized looks with that very dandy looking dual-fan GPU cooler. Next to that Palit pre-clocked the product at a nice 800 MHz for you on the core, 1600 MHz on the shader domain and even the memory got bumped up towards 4000 MHz (effective).
In retrospect, the default core clock frequency of a reference GeForceGTX 570 is 732 MHz whereas the memory normally is clocked at 3800 MHz.
The end result is a product that closes in at the GeForce GTX 580 performance, and that is just an interesting prospect. We expect the product to hover at the 400 EUR level, anyway, have a peek at the looks and then we'll dive deep into the product with our Guru3D recipe for reviews.
