Everyone has got to admit that they were at least semi-excited about the release of NVIDIA's GTX 580. What else could be more interesting than a new card taking the crown of the fastest single GPU card. Even so, NVIDIA didn't stop there. The graphical computing beast soon released the GTX 570 core which proved to be more than 20% faster than the GTX 470. NVIDIA then went on to their recent release of the very affordable, extremely powerful GTX 560 Ti. All of these releases, combined with all of ATI's recent releases it can, once again, be very hard to choose which GPU is right for you.
Today we'll be looking at an offering of the GTX 570 from ASUS, simply called the "ASUS GTX 570". This card comes with everything you'd expect from ASUS. This includes voltage tweakablitiy, DX11 support, and of course the modified GF 110 core. So without further ado, let's take a look at what this card has to offer, and how it stacks up against the rest of the competition.
First up is the box. The ASUS GTX 570 arrives with a green and black color scheme. The front of the box features the very familiar horseman holding a sword. This appears to be the same horseman that ASUS used on their "Dark Knight" addition cards. Flipping the box over reveals some specs about the card as well as a picture of the card's display ports.
Like we've seen with many other cards from ASUS, there is a second black box underneath the initial packaging. This then offers you a fold up flap which reveals three smaller black compartments. The first and second compartments contain the included extras. These are a Molex to 6-Pin connector, a DVI to VGA adapter, an HDMI adapter, and a Driver CD. Lifting up the first compartment reveals the beautiful ASUS GTX 570.
Now that we've checked out the packaging, let's take a look at the ASUS GTX 570 itself.
