The GTX 580 carries 512 CUDA Cores and has GPU speed of 772MHz, a shader frequency of 1544MHz, and an effective memory speed of 4008MHz with a 384-bit interface. Nvidia has removed 32 CUDA Cores in the GTX 570 for a total of 480 -- the same number found in the GTX 480. Meanwhile, its GPU runs at 732MHz, it has a 1464MHz shader clock, and an effective memory speed of 3800MHz with a 320-bit interface.

Since the GTX 570 is a reduced version of the 580, it naturally consumes less power. It uses two 6-pin PCIe connectors instead of a 6+8-pin configuration, and has a TDP of 225W versus 244W. We assume the GTX 570 runs even quieter too, but that remains to be seen. The I/O panel is populated with the same dual-DVI and mini-HDMI setup. Nvidia's new card is set to ship on December 7, the same day as WoW: Cataclysm.
