Nvidia GeForce GTX 570 review

Faster, cheaper, quieter. So, not bad then…

Jump to Section:

Considering the other three cards in these comparative benchmarks are all £400-odd cards the figures we're getting out of the GTX 570 are impressive.

The GTX 570 is actually happily trading blows with the GTX 480, a card that until a couple of months ago was the pinnacle of single-GPU performance. For less than £300 it's arguably making itself more relevant than the GTX 580.

All these figures are taken at the maxed out resolution of our 30-inch screen, 2560x1600 and represents the current top end of gaming resolutions.
