It was about recent time previous month that Nvidia established the mighty GeForce GTX 580, ensuring once again their right to claim ownership of the globe's fastest graphics processing unit. The flagship card presented blistering quick function in the 13 games we tried, as it was on average 22% quicker than the GTX 480, and as much as 46% quickest than the Radeon HD 5870.
When separating down the GeForce GTX 580 in conditions of price and function the card even created sense contempt its high asking price. Maintaining in mind the function margins we only mentioned it was simple to justify the 11% markup when equated to the GeForce GTX 480. On the other hand, the card was a important 47% more costly than the Radeon HD 5870, but then again the function increase was of a same figure.
Nvidia's GeForce GTX 580 might be the recent king of the hill, but this could alter early the end of the year when AMD establishes their latest Radeon HD 6900 series. AMD was in the first place anticipated to deliver its Cayman XT and Pro-founded Radeon HD 6970 and 6950 graphics boards sometime throughout November, but they have postponed their
came till mid-December for undisclosed concludes. If you do not mind maintaining off a some short weeks, the expect could be worth few storing or potentially more function for the similar dollars, depending on what AMD has set aside for us.
With the actual high-end fight even to take place Nvidia is not sitting around expecting for AMD to strike back. Rather, they are acquiring ready to issue their second GF110-based product. The GeForce GTX 570 should be hitting shelves briefly, featuring same specifications to that of the GTX 480 but with a less cost.
As the GeForce GTX 470 was to the GTX 480, the GTX 570 is a cut down edition of the currently freed GTX 580. Thermals and functioning efficiency will remain much the similar, as will the characteristics. What has altered is the core configuration, operating frequencies, and storage bus width, all of which have been somewhat diluted.
The GeForce GTX 570 is probably targeting the now to be released AMD Radeon HD 6950 – which we even familiar small about. The Radeon HD 6870, which is somewhat slower than the former 5870 in most games, and is therefore in a fully dissimilar cost bracket. The latter will likely come up opposite the GeForce GTX 560 when Nvidia releases this card before following year. For now, though, let us take a closer look at the GeForce GTX 570 in our hands and search out how well it functions.
