Editors Didn't Like

  • Umption compared to the GTX 580
  • The GTX 570 does it all for less, GTX 4xx price structure is not realistic at the moment, Hot air from GPU cooler stays inside case, Not the fastest GPU on the planet anymore
  • Tough buying decision due to GeForce GTX 580 availability, Limited additional OC potential over out of the box clocks, Voltage measurement points and dual BIOS button hard to reach, DirectX 11 relevance limited at this time
