Externally at least the nVidia reference GTX570 follows the long-established design of reference heat-sinks that have existed seemingly since the dawn of time now. With the best will in the world it's nearly impossible to get excited about them or find anything new to say.

Connectivity is provided by two DVI ports and a mini-HDMI. In keeping with the reduced power requirements of the revised nVidia 5 series the GTX570 only has twin 6-pin PCIe power connectors.

Stripped down the GTX570 is nearly identical to the GTX580. The shroud is well ventilated allowing for better temperature control in SLI setups.

Underneath the hood we have a very similar arrangement to that we saw in the GTX580 with a series heat-sink complete with a vapor-chamber to help rein in the temperatures of the GF110 core.

Fits right where we expected. I would have liked to have seen 470 results in there as well because I am sure a lot of people will be trying to decide between the lower priced 470 and the new-kid-on-the-block 570. Nice review though. I hope nVidia can keep on this path of winning cards for awhile. It will be interesting to see what AMD fires back with at the $350 price range.

How early did you get 3DMark 11?Quote

Tom what would you recon is best, a 580 gtx overclocked or 2x MSI 460 GTX Hawk overclocked?

And will you do a review of the MSI 460 GTX Hawk?Quote

I saw the AMD 1100T review and thought to myself, the 570 review is bigger news, is Tom on crack?

Great review again.

No point to do a 460 GTX Hawk review, its a great card, its got a better cooler than reference and arguably can handle over voltage without issue. Honestly, I'd go and pick up a 570 before I dropped money on a 2x GTX 460 Hawk configuration.Quote
