NVIDIA has outed its latest video card, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570, a GTX 500 Series card that's been buffed down to a budget. With an RRP of $349, the GTX 570 takes the chassis of November's GTX 580 and shaves away the GPU to suit: it has 480 CUDA cores, a 732MHz graphics clock and 1,464MHz processor clock, while outputs consist of a mini HDMI and two dual-link DVI ports.
There's also a 320-bit memory interface, and 1280MB of GDDR5 memory as standard; the memory clock runs at 1900MHz. It's also NVIDIA SLI ready, for 3-way video card setups, along with 3D Vision PhysX and DirectX 11, together with OpenGL 4.1
The double-width card also gets the vapor chamber cooling of the GTX 580, but has lower power requirements: just two 6-pin ports, in fact. Expect cards from ASL, ASUS, Colorful, ECS, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Innovision 3D, Jetway, Leadtek, MSI, Palit, Point of View, PNY, Sparkle, Zotac and others.
