NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 DirectX 11 GPU Review

Hot on the heels of the arrival of their flagship GeForce GTX 580, NVIDIA is launching another new graphics card today, based on the GF110 GPU. As we’ve come to expect from NVIDIA, and AMD for that matter, when a new GPU arrives, derivatives based on pared down version of the chip typically get introduced at some point, but with somewhat lower specifications. Such is the case with the GeForce GTX 570 we’ll be showing you here today.

It’s almost funny to say “somewhat lower specifications”, however, because the GeForce GTX 570 is one heck of a powerful graphics card, as you’ll see. We’ve got the full specifications outlined, followed by a complete set of performance numbers using both a reference card and factory overclocked model from EVGA—the GeForce GTX 570 SuperClocked Edition...

Nice card, and I will certainly factor it into my considerations for my next build. The price point and performance is compelling compared to the GTX580 series cards.

Waiting for everyone to release their latest bling is a PITA though.

This card seems to be a 480 in performance.  They were right there with each other through all the test.

I agree, but they are being introduced at a much better price point, and they produce less heat due to the Vapor Cooling solution and the redesigned transistors on board.

Newegg is selling five of them from $349.00 to $359.00. The $349.00 EVGA has a lifetime warranty too.

These are very compelling.

EDIT: I just wanted to say thanks HotHardware, for the timely review on this card. It is informative, but it opened up a whole new line of thought for my build to come. So with this, and Sandy Bridge coming along soon, and also the Cayman 6900 series about to rear it's head above water, it's an interesting time to be an end user, but it's also getting to be confusing too.

Don't get me wrong Neil, I wasn't saying buy a 480 since this is just like it.  It is like the 6000 series is shaping up to be from AMD.  Not much more performance, but much better price, power, and heat.

Yeah, I got that when I read your post. I was just being anal and pointing some of the card's benefits out. I guess It would be the new and improved version of the 480.

The EVGA sc is sold out but that's the one i am waiting for unless someone could give me better advice on getting the normal one and overclocking myself but this was a great review +1 on the like page.

Impressive for the Price. I might pick one up in a few months.

this is the card i'm getting for my socket 2011 setup in 6-7 months (hopefully the sandy bridge 2011 socket is out then!) unless the 600 series comes out by then.

Amazing review. We'll have to wait and see AMD's new gpu cards... it might bring the 570's price down a bit.

Yes, there's nothing like a lovely price war to see and appreciate, is there?

My short list just got a whole lot shorter due to this review.

Yeah, mine too. Barring anything that's totally earth shattering coming from AMD in the next few weeks, it's gonna probably be one or two of these GTX570's that I get next. My next build is gonna have to last me for a few years, and I see these as probably being able to handle what's next on the gaming horizon for at least that long.

Impressive performance.... but for $100 less I can pick up a 470 and have similar performance. A pair of 470s just might be my next GPU upgrade... now come on and drive those prices down some more!! :-D

realneil 3 years ago

They've quit making the 470's as of this week, so if you want them you should jump.

acarzt 3 years ago

ahhh well if that the case, I just might have to wait til the 570s drop to $250 a pop lol

realneil 3 years ago

Sorry,

I posted the wrong info, Today I read that they'll continue to sell the 470's.

$250.00 a pop for 570's would be effin' awesome though,............

rrplay 3 years ago

Thanks realneil for updating the info really sweet even at 275.00   so

Post for reference EVGA 570

EVGA 012-P3-1570-AR

EVGA 012-P3-1572-AR SuperClocked

EVGA GTX 570 Fan Unlocker v1.0  info http://www.evga.com/forums/tm.aspx?m=725069

About the time they are at a $275 00 price range they would have likely  have the new bios and updates applied in the later batches ,,

This is going to sound bad, but is it possible to order the bar graphs into descending order in terms of performance? idk.

In any case, these puppies are HOT CAKES. They're going to sell well and I hope AMD like neil has said, puts up a competition. 5 days away!

The GTX 570 offers the best value, especially the EVGA SC, that would be my choice for an upgrade next year , but I think GTX 570's prices will go up in January. 

Now, everybody knows Two GTX 460 in SLI, hands down, beats the GTX 480 in the majority of benchmark test, and @ a way better price. I think a lot of people are waiting for the GTX 560 , and repeat history, with SLI against the 580.
