NVIDIA plans to release its second GeForce GTX 500 series graphic card, GeForce GTX 570, next week. This cards is based on GF110 graphics processor, the same that was used in the production of already announced GeFoce GTX 580.
As far as we know, NVIDIA left some room for its partners, meaning it (NVIDIA) will support partners with graphics processors only, instead of usual reference design kits. This means, AIBs can use own PCB designs and cooling solutions in the production of GTX 570. In addition, clocks can be altered too which will be reflected in changes of other specifications. However, GPU performance configuration and amount of vRAM will remain the same. In the end, here are specs of High-End solution of Fermi architecture:
|GeForce GTX 580||GeForce GTX 570||GeForce GTX 480||GeForce GTX 470|
|Graphics Clock, MHz||772||732*||700||607|
|Processor Clock, MHz||1544||1380*||1401||1215|
|Memory clock , MHz(QDR)||1001 (4008)||950 (3800)*||924 (3696)||837 (3348)|
|Memory Interface Width||384-bit||320-bit||384-bit||320-bit|
|SDRAM type||1536 Mb GDDR5||1280 Mb GDDR5||1536 Mb GDDR5||1280 Mb GDDR5|
|Memory Bandwidth, GB/sec||192,4||152,0*||177,4||133,9|
|Texture Fill Rate , GTexel/s||49,4||41,4*||42,0||34,0|
|Maximum Graphics Card Power,W:||244||225*||250||215|
* Subject to change
GeForce GTX 570 graphics cards will be available at major suppliers from 7th of December 2010, despite the fact, that currently GeFoce GTX 580 faces some stocking difficulties in retail network, but NVIDIA does its best to saturate the market by the time Christmas sales start.
