Results for default GeForce GTX 570 took place between Radeon HD 6950 2GB and RADEON HD 6970. Unlike AMD’s solutions, overclocked GeForce GTX 570 showed a better performance scalability and bypassed overclocked RADEON HD 6950 2GB and RADEON HD 6970 2GB cards.
The heaviest test with resolution of 1920×1200, x16 Anisotropic Filtering and x4 Anti Aliasing settings resembles Extreme profile:
The situation did not changed with eve higher settings. No-clocked GeForce GTX 570 positions between RADEON HD 6950 2GB and HD 6970 2GB while clocked GeForce GTX 570 confirms its leaderships demonstrating awesome performance scalability.
