NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 1.25GB Graphics Card Review

The GeForce GTX 570 1.25GB Card

In pretty much every capacity, the GeForce GTX 570 card looks just like the GTX 580 card released last month.

The reference card we received for review keeps much of the same design as the previous card from NVIDIA including the vapor chamber cooler and the more recessed fan for better multi-GPU cooling in tight case configurations. 

The GTX 570 only requires a pair of 6-pin PCI Express power connections while both the GTX 580 and the GTX 480 required a 6-pin and 8-pin. 

Display configurations are pretty stagnant in the NVIDIA world with a pair of dual link DVI outputs and a mini-HDMI port.

The GTX 570 supports both 2-Way and 3-Way SLI configurations for GPU scaling down the road.

I'm surprised by the heat consumption. I wonder how that would be effected through virtualization. You can run it through this Power Consumption Calculator
