‘GeForce GTX 570’ could arrive in December

Nvidia may not be done for the year just yet. According to a story at VR-Zone, which quotes an anonymous source, Nvidia’s partners are saying a GeForce GTX 570 will be released some time in December.

The upcoming card’s performance is said to be similar to that of the GTX 480, with a thermal envelope quite similar to the GTX 470’s. Specifications are still unconfirmed, but VR-Zone expects the newcomer to have 1280MB of memory.

The GeForce GTX 570 will reportedly be driven by a slightly modified version of the GF110 chip that debuted with the GTX 580, Nvidia’s current flagship. Word is that one of the streaming multiprocessors will be disabled, which should bring down the number of stream processors from 512 on the GTX 580 to 480 on the GTX 570. While it will likely not match the performance offered by its big brother, the GTX 570 may however have a less intimidating price tag.

    If we go back to what NVIDIA has done with its high-end salvage part in the past, they usually disable 2 SM clusters. This didn’t happen with GF100, because they also had to make compromises with the top tier card (GTX 480), but 8800 GTX to 8000 GTS 640 -> two clusters disabled. GTX 280 to original GTX 260 -> two clusters disabled.

    With that in mind, and given that GF110 is what GF100 should’ve been, I think this card may be exactly the same as the GTX 470, spec wise, but with higher clocks.

    I’m glad i didn’t buy any card yet since my good old 260 GTX(Not so old) . It looks like some price ward may begin with all this great new card coming out from both sides, also black friday…. BUt apparently, this one won’t be out yet by then.

    its probably goin to match yje 480s in performance definitly better then a 470 and power consumption is goin to be in the same balpark as the 580 mabey a lil less but i bet it will throttle like its gay big bro,nv tried to sneak that by everyone ,captain she wont hold together at this power imm at 125%on the reactor imm throttling us back before we use all our antimatter or blow up!

    I really hope it will replace the GTX 470 at the 200EUR point.

    I’m gonna wait on this till the GTX 570 GTS SE comes out. Then I’ll jump.

      The best you can hope for is an Asses ENGTS 570 SE TOP 2GB, and that’s assuming they ever release a GTS 570 after the GTX 570.

      Sadly they don’t make names /[

        sadly xfx was not on the boat back then =(

    So this sits between the GTX480 and GTX580? Or will it just replace the GTX470?

      • sweatshopking

      probably replace the 470/480

      I predict it will be $400, the price point at which it will sit on your head and fart out; “the way you’re meant to be played,” in morse code.

        If it’s over $300, I just can’t see it being successful.

          The 470 was $350 at release. I know someone is going to say that the 570 will have “competition” from the 6900s, but their higher prices will likely push the 570 up, which isn’t terribly competitive.

        • tviceman

        Pricing will depend on when and how much AMD launches the 6900 series for. If AMD goes after Nvidia on pricing like Nvidia has done to AMD lately, I see the gtx580 dropping at least $50, and the gtx570 to be around $300-$329.

          Considering that they were supposed to release the 6900s almost immediately after the 6800s, they don’t appear to have any intention of making them cheap, and if they are having yield issues, that won’t change anything only a month later.
