nVidia GTX570 Review
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.
