Is a GeForce GTX 570 lurking behind the curtain as some reports suggested earlier this month? Perhaps so. The guys at Sweclockers.com have gotten their hands on a Palit product sheet that says just about all there is to say about the upcoming GPU—and they claim it's due on December 7.
According to the spec sheet, the GeForce GTX 570 will have 480 stream processors, a 732MHz base clock speed, and 1280MB of 3.8Gbps GDDR5 memory hooked up to a 320-bit memory interface. Those numbers point to slightly greater computational performance than what the GeForce GTX 480 offers, but with less RAM and lower memory bandwidth. The spec sheet also mentions a 225W thermal envelope, a wee bit below the GTX 480's 250W TDP.
By the way, the GeForce GTX 570 will reportedly be based on the same GF110 GPU that powers the GTX 580, so we can probably look forward to some of the associated improvements—like much faster FP16 texture filtering.
Too bad Sweclockers doesn't say how much the GTX 570 will cost. I suppose it's probably a given that the newcomer will fall somewhere between the GTX 470 and GTX 580; that is, between roughly $250 and $500. The question is: where? (Thanks to Expreview for the link.)
