KFA2 GTX570 Review

Crysis Warhead

The only thing we can expect from Crysis Warhead is that it's nothing if not a fussy thing. So it proves with the KFA² giving an enormous score at stock and about what we'd predict when overclocked. Either way it's an improvement over the reference design.

Crysis 2

It's sequel, Crysis 2, is one of the newer games on our test rotation and so we've only got one comparison for the moment. The vanilla version in all it's console-based DX9 finery is solid if unspectacular and you can certainly see that with low levels of detail there is a lot to be said for a cheap dual-card configuration.

However, ramp that Image Quality up with the DX11 patch and the Hi-Res texture pack and it's clear that the underlying architecture can make a huge difference. The KFA² GTX570 puts up some stunning numbers. The level of detail is amazing and yet we're still north of 40 FPS average.

The way that fan lifts up is "genius". If I had a pure gaming rig I'd deffo put one of these in there.

I wish you could run 3 monitors off of a single nVidia gpu Quote

Awesome review TTL. I'm loving how easy it is to clean the fan. The card itself looks the dog's danglies as you say and would be a brill edition to any blue themed build.Quote

I really can't understand why the 570's have been taken off

the spotlight recently because they offer excellent performance for their

price.

Great review but im struggling to see how the card is kicking the crossfired 6770's on Crysis 2 @ 1920x1080 dx11 hi res, I appreciate its overclocked but i just cant see it giving 10+ fps better average performance,

Honestly not flaming/trying to argue but it just seems wrong *shrugs*
