A month ago, Nvidia launched its GeForce GTX 580, and it was everything we wanted back in March. Now the company is introducing the GeForce GTX 570, also based on its GF110. Is it fast enough to make us forget the GF100-based 400-series ever existed?
AMD excels in Battlefield as well; the $500 Radeon HD 5970 trumps the $510 GeForce GTX 580. But it’s the $380 worth of Radeon HD 6850s in CrossFire that impress most, scoring first place at a fairly attractive price for enthusiasts with money to spend.
The GeForce GTX 570 trades blows with the GeForce GTX 480 here, still coming across as an incredibly-better value than the GF100-based board still selling for more than $400 online. Unfortunately, Nvidia’s closest competition is AMD’s Radeon HD 5870, which can be found for something like $60 bucks less online (before rebates).
At least in Bad Company 2, Nvidia just doesn’t show as well.
