Nvidia GTX 570 Video Card

Nvidia GTX 570 Video Card - After the successful launch of the GTX 580, Nvidia has revealed the GTX 570 which is the successor to the GTX 470. This new graphics card is targeted at the enthusiast segment and is based on the same re-worked Fermi core, GF110 like the GTX 580. The card will be available starting today (at least in U.S.) and consumers will have a choice from all Nvidia board partners like ZOTAC, Asus, MSI, Sparkle, PNY, Leadtek, Galaxy, ECS, EVGA, etc.

Looking at the specifications of the card, you can think of the GTX 570 as a hybrid between the GTX 480 ad the GTX 470. The new card packs in the same shader count that the GTX 480 had but runs on a slightly stripped down memory bus of 320-bit that the GTX 470 ran on. Due to this, the pixel and texture fill rate have increased by roughly 20 percent and thanks to the new and improved Fermi core, Nvidia has been able to bump up the clock speeds of the core and memory which should ring out even more performance. Given it's current price point (somewhere around Rs. 23,000) it goes head on with ATI's DX11 offering, the HD5870. However, this is going to be short lived as ATI plans to launch its 'Cayman' or 6900 series in a week's time so the GTX 570 may reign superior now but the tables could turn very shortly if ATI pulls through. In the mean time, we are busy finishing up the review of the GTX 570 so stay tuned for a full report.
