GTX 570 with Core i7-975 benchmarks at Ultra Quality quality settings

For the most part, the GTX 570 is still capable of playing modern games, but you would have to reduce settings to sustain those higher framerates. If keeping graphics quality settings closer to ultra or high is important, there are a few options for upgrades. It appears that the GTX 570 is a more capable mid-range card that can play AAA titles at 1080p with 60 frames per second. It is worth noting that the GTX 570 is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. With current 1280 MB RAM, the GTX 570 can have serious memory-related bottlenecks in more modern games. It is important to know that GTX 570 's max load temperature is very high and might require custom cooling solutions. This combination between GTX 570 and Intel Core i7-975 @ 3.33GHz has less than 15% bottleneck in many games and can cause minor FPS loss. View Current Price List

Critics Reviews

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 570 1.3GB uses the same PCB and cooler as the GTX 580 1.5GB - the two cards are close to indistinguishable.
That was quick! We check out Nvidia's surprise new card, out in time for Christmas.
The GeForce GTX 570 also comes with that self same impressive vapour-chamber cooling technology that managed to keep the GTX 580 below the first Fermi's windy roar.
The GTX 570 is also clocked higher than either of the two top-end 400 series Fermi cards, making it rather more of a direct replacement for the GTX 480 than the GTX 470.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 Specifications & Features Looking at the above features and specifications, it's obvious that the new GeForce GTX 570, like the GTX 580, is very similar to the GeForce GTX ...
The GTX 570 also has a slightly lower TDP of 219 watts, compared to 250 watts for the GTX 480 and 244 for the GTX 580—Nvidia recommends a 550-watt power supply for the GTX 570, and 600 watts for ...
NVIDIA puts the TDP at 219W – a mere 4W over GTX 470 – highlighting the fact that NVIDIA has gone for maximizing performance within their selected power profile for the GTX 570, versus ...
Here are the GeForce GTX 570’s features and specifications (for the reference card). Pictures and more detail are on the next page, followed by the performance scores... The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570
NVIDIA has put the TDP at 210W, versus 219W for the GTX 570. As always NVIDIA does not supply an idle TDP, but it should be practically identical to the GTX 570.
