  1. A product slide for the Palit-made GeForce GTX 570 has slipped onto the web ahead of its embargo date, revealing the card's specifications and release date. As expected, the GTX 570 is based on the same optimized GF110 GPU as its more powerful sibling, the GeForce GTX 580, but it has slightly scaled down specs all around, including a lower CUDA Core count, clock frequencies, as well as VRAM capacity and interface.

    In terms of raw speed it should be faster than the 480. The only limitation may be high res games where memory and bus width become an issue.

    If it's a good overclocker like the 470 is, this card could be a real hit in the new year. Now I'm torn about whether to add a second 470 after this card debuts for some Surround action, or to wait it out and pick up one of these babies. Decisions, decisions. :(
  4. These cards are effectively the 485 and 475. If you remember the naming convention of the 200 series you will understand what I'm talking about. Don't be upset because you bought a 400 series part as these are just faster more efficient versions of the 400 series. No significant gains in performance if you've read any reviews of the 580,

    Agreed. I can't believe how angry ATi fanboys get over Nvidia. Did the above people even buy an Nvidia GPU? Did THEY get burned? Why aren't they crying foul over the 6850 and 6870?
  6. Wonder how much it is going to cost as I am very interested picking one up. Another sweet deal by nvidea!

    Why would anyone cry fowl over the 68xx cards? They're terrific!

    ATI w...mmhpheww... AMD should put their pant on if they plan to fight this match. I hope the next 69xx give the fith to this GOOD Nvidia line Up, if you see, the 480 now is 570 it is because will be less pricey with better performance, Nvidia is really doing their homework.

    Terrific how in comparison to the 5850 and 5870?

    Sure, they may be "terrific", but their names are misleading. The 6850 and 6870 should be successors to the 5850 and 5870, right? Instead, they are successors to the 5770 and 5830 respectively. The 5850 and 5870 are still more powerful.

    They're not supposed to be directly competing with the aforementioned cards. AMD just decided to break its own naming convention, which is remarkably stupid. But being an nVidia owner, I'm used to naming schemes that are far more *****ic anyways.

    The cards themselves are excellent performers regardless of name, though. If people did proper research, they would realize that the 68xx cards are not more powerful, and purchase accordingly. Same deal for nVidia cards. The naming schemes were terrible, but if a rational person did five minutes of research then they'd know the differences.

    The real benefit here is that neither AMD nor nVidia fanboys are allowed to point and laugh at the other 'side' over something as stupid as a naming scheme.

    AMD needs to do a hard launch of the 6900 series on December 13th to avoid falling behind Nvidia going into the new year. As for myself, I've already decided on the GTX 580 for my primary gaming rig and may consider a GTX 570 for my backup gaming rig.

    Nvidia needs to make more GDDR5 non power connector cards. Something to compete with the 5670.

    Actually, I think ATI pulls product numbers out of their corporate a**, specifically to confuse would be customers, and to render card comparisons within their own brand difficult at best.

    I really don't see what's confusing about Nvidia numbers, you'd have to explain what's throwing you off about those.
