Nvidia Geforce GTX 570 launched on December 7, 2010, and still holds the spot of Nvidia’s second fastest graphics card. Geforce GTX 570 cards are made for hardcore gamers – it packs a nice punch and is priced similarly to the Radeon HD 6970. Gainward offers several different Geforce GTX 570 versions but our today’s test subject is the GTX 570 Golden Sample Edition.
Geforce GTX 570 is based on the GF110 GPU which can be found on the faster Geforce GTX 580 as well. By overclocking the Geforce GTX 570, users can get Geforce GTX 580 performance, but of course, overclocking does introduce other risks.
Nvidia strapped its reference Geforce GTX 570 cards with quality cooling that uses vapor chamber technology. However, Gainward decided to strap its GTX 570 Golden Sample with a special dual fan cooler.
So, the card runs at 750MHz for the GPU, 1500MHz for shaders and 3900MHz (effectively) for the memory. Just to remind you, reference clocks stand at 732MHz for the GPU, 1462MHz for shaders and 3800MHz for memory.
