Product Description

Product Description

Based on ASUS DirectCU architecture, which uses copper heat pipes in direct contact with the GPU to speed up heat dissipation for over 20% cooler performance, DirectCU II takes cooling further with twin 80mm fans for 600% airflow.

Super Alloy Power technology uses special alloy formula in critical power delivery components for a 15% performance boost, 35°C cooler operation and 2.5 times longer lifespan.

PC performance seekers know overvolting gets the extreme results they crave. This is why ASUS’ exclusive Voltage Tweak is so cool – it goes deep into graphics cards to supply them with more energy, so they deliver more speed and graphics-pushing. You will enjoy complete control over tweaking through the intuitive user interface – making it easy to get to 50%* gain in performance.

ASUS SmartDoctor is a group of special tools to help users make the most of their ASUS graphics cards. It monitors the Fan RPM, AGP Power Level, GPU and RAM temperature, and has a slide bar for easy manual overclocking. Furthermore, the embedded HyperDrive and SmartCooling technology can dynamically overclock and change the fan speed for better performance and convenience. With its comprehensive hardware monitoring functions it provides you with the best graphics card investment protection and best performance when overclocking.

What a nice piece of kit. I've owned a lot of high performance cards over the years and this is very nice. The 3-slot design might be a pain if you can't afford to lose the slots but the cooling you get is amazing. I was previously running an Nvidia 8800 GTX: this 570 GTX runs significantly cooler under LOAD than the 8800 GTX ran IDLE. The only thing to note is that by default the speed of the fans is proportional to the clock-rate and NOT the temperature. You'll need to install the Asus Smart Doctor and switch it to enable "Smart Cooling", which allows you to set specific fan ratios (40%, 50% etc) for specific temperature ranges. That said, even with the fan running at the default speed and maxing it out with Folding@home I still didn't see anything above 65 degrees (this is in an Antec P183 case); with the Smart Cooling I never see temperatures above 56 degrees and that means a fan ratio of about 40-50%. That's just as well since setting the fan manually to 100% makes you realise how noisy the card COULD be.
I dislike noisy machines and buy silent or near-silent components: my CPU is passively cooled and I have 120mm silent fans etc. I chose this card because it offered amazing performance and was quieter and cooler in online reviews. Under max load, the noise from the case sitting under my desk is noticeable but not obtrusive enough to be an issue since I game with headphones on anyway. When idle or under moderate load, I can't even tell it's on.
If anyone is going to use this with the Antec P183 then note that you WILL have to remove the upper drive cage to accommodate the card; and you will NOT be able to fit it into the bottom-most PCIe x16 slot as the chamber-divider does not leave enough clearance.
I am running with an old Core 2 Quad Q6600 (stock speed @2.

This runs every game on the market on high and ultra settings at 1920 x 1080.
Im running this on an AMD Phenom x6 1100T and 4GB 1600Mhz Ram.

It also runs very cool idling at 30'C and maxing out at 59 to 62 degrees so there is plenty of overclocking potential with asus smart doctor.

Would recommend this to anyone that wants to run any of todays DX11 games on high setting.

Only downside is that it is huge but makes up with its great cooling and ovrclocking features.

Yip!, For the price difference, This is worth it, keeping performance while less costly than the higher cards. This is a wise choice for the 1st time buyer, On the graphs, This card isnt that far behind its big brothers, While being a mile ahead of its younger brothers, Real nice choice... (IMPORTANT!!!...Just be sure to buy a static mat and wrist band if your new to PC`s, Death WILL occur if you do not follow simple safety steps regarding static build up, Google how to get through that if applicable) 5 stars for this product and seller.

as you probably aware this card is a beast, it will play pretty much any game comfortably at even high resolutions.

I would just add this;
the fans are imo very quiet (especially for a card of this range) however there is some very odd sound it seems to make. i can only describe it as a sort of low pitch humming sound, sort of like a pulsing hmmm...hmmmmm.....hmmmm....hmmmm

however this sound only appears under load (gaming/furmark etc..) if there is sound from headphones/speakers you will probably not hear it, but if there is a quiet moment in a game then you would hear this pulsing sound. It wouldnt bother some ppl but it absolutely drove me insane.

so yeah performance wise this card is an absolute monster and generally a very quiet and cool running card, but if you are REALLY fussy about noise from pc i would say perhaps look at a different card.

Bear in mind you will not find a silent gtx 570 unless its under water but the specific sound type here is what i am talking about. Also there is possiblity i simply got a defective card but the noise was so slight i doubt it and the performance and temps were excellent

Was deliverd on time. Installation was easy although card is very big i had to remove middle hard drive tray so check length. Only had chance to run crysis 2 on it with tesselation pack and hd textures and it runs the game on ultra at highest resolution possible on a 32inch led tv and im gettin about 40fps. My next goal is to buy another and sli them and hopefully that should handle any game i fling at it for a good while yet

This is a CLASS graphics card for its price.Its way over gtx560ti and does worth the extra money.And ALSO its cheaper than gtx580 with very close performance.I must say its not very noisy,when it goes full load you can hear some sort of air flow,but not anoying.There is one problem tho....its SIZE...triple slot size,and very very long.You need a suitable case,also not to forget you also need a nice power supply.Somewhere 650+ w.

Price - £247 delivered was a bargain for this extremely heavy duty, factory overclocked and (for those interested) it can be overclocked even further, seeing as it runs at such a low temperature at full wack.

If your interested in a 570 this is the only choice. Yeh you can argue that you wont overclock. But, its very cool and this means it will last a very long time.

Overclocked this card will run at respectable temperatures and perform in between a 570 and 580.

For Price and Performance this card is the one to have. The 560 (on writing this review) is £60 less than the 570 but less than half the performance. The 580 is £150 more and doesn't really benchmark a game m8uch higher than a 570. I mean, it will play BF3 on maximum/Ultra with 60 fps - so will 570. After 60 fps the human eye won't register anything else, so why bother?!?
