    The GTX570 is overlooked now, its still a stunning card. great review steve, just a shame they didnt opt for a modified cooler on this.

  • Earthworm Jim

    I like the simple black design,. I thought the same about the asus rampage III black edition. its like the total opposite of those hideous looking HIS iceQ things.

    Unfortunately, the cooler is just a reference design, which while not ‘bad’, is a little lazy to me in such a competitive market

  • Francis

    YAY ! more GTX570 reviews, I love this card and almost bought one. im sorry I bought a 460 at the time. I love PNY. great review

  • Benjamin Button

    The reference cooler works well on the 570 and 580. its the 590 is the concern. it was never a wise idea putting two GPUs (fermi anyway) onto a single pcb. they run too hot.

    This card is a great buy, and I dont think 83c is too high at all. thats a nice limit to hit. most of the 580s are 88-89c

  • Ned

    The big issue is not the cooler on the 590, but the cut down vrm design which they put onto it.

    570 and 580 are great. nice to see more nvidia reviews here.

  • Seth

    I have another 570 which I bought a long time ago, no intention of changing it.

    people forget it all about the resolution. no need for a 6990 or 580 unless you need to game on big big screens or across more than one. 570 is more than enough for 1920×1200 or 1080p.

    Balanced review, if it had a custom cooler, should be gold, but its a shame PNY didnt work out something nicer for this card.
