ASUS GeForce GTX 570
When the Nvidia GTX 580 launched, we found it to be a very impressive card, having corrected the power, heat, and noise problems that plagued its predecessor, the GTX 480. With the new GF110 architecture proving to be a huge improvement, Nvidia claimed the title for fastest single-GPU card, and positioned very well against AMD’s 6000 series cards.
But the GTX 580 is a flagship gaming card, and not everyone has the budget to support purchasing such a behemoth. As a result, Nvidia has released the GTX 570, based on the same architecture but slightly lower on the performance and pricing scale.
Today we’re looking at the ASUS GTX 570, which is essentially based on the reference Nvidia design, though it does come with a minor overclock out of the box. Promising strong performance and low temperatures, the GTX 570 looks to continue the winning trend established by the 580. It does look impressive on paper, but real success lies on the test bench and in games. So let’s jump in and take a closer look at the ASUS GTX 570 and find out just how fast it is.
