GTX 570 Clocks, Launch, and Picture

So this is the GTX 570?



Looks about right. Clocks are at 690/1380/3800 MHz respectively, compared to 772/1544/4008 MHz on the 580. Launch seems to be Dec. 8, 2010, or 12/8/10. Considering the average high for the 580 is about 850 MHz, maybe 900 MHz, this should likely be about the same, giving it a substantial 30% OC, assuming 690 MHz to 900 MHz. Might be a real killer card if at stock it has 480 performance +/- 5% and comes in at a nice price, say $349-399?

  1. Any rumors on core count? I'd guess one block disabled, but you never know.

    Yeah, 480, thats been out for a while.
  3. They want everyone to get the 580 that really wanted it before bringing this guy out. It will probably have awesome performance and OC ability like the 470 before it. But they want to get it on the street before the 6900's. That would be the good move.

    If everything goes as planned, the 570 wont really beat the 69xx by a margin of time that would really give it the leg up. But it might be a fantastic overclocker. I wonder what that says about the 560. The 560 was clocked low and could OC very high, but when it did, it overlapped with the 470 a lot. If this is also clocked low, i wonder if that frowns upon the 560 being as good a performer as we had hoped, otherwise they likely would have clocked it higher to avoid overlap.
  5. Well, then if priced right it looks like a worthy successor to the 470.

    It's basically a higher clocked GF110 GTX480ish

    Actually is lowered clocked GTX 480 plus the 3% this refresh brings. Should be around the same performance.
  8. ^
    Basically people who have a GTX470/480 aren't getting much out of this really. But if you are looking it may be worth hanging around for.

    Same thing with the 580, i wouldnt recommend going from a 480 to a 580, even though it is a good card.
  10. ^Exactly. The GTX470 is at a good price right now though. There is an MSI @ $225 after rebate + Free Shipping. I mean THAT is a pretty good deal if you have a PSU to run it. If the 570 is only going to have lets say 10% performance on it at most and go for $350-400... why not get a $225 card before its gone.
  11. I don't really care as they phasing out GF100 production for the GF110 even though it is pin for pin compatible with existing PCB designs.
