i completely understand the reasoning behind the question
the original poster wanted to know how high a clock on 570 would have to be to match stock 580 in performance, so he could know, and tell himself or anybody else who isn't overclocking, or parents if they financed the card how much money he saved to get same performance
too bad people are here arguing instead just saying what needs to be said
to try to put a rest to this, i took advantage of the 3dmark11 advanced copy i got with the 570 (forgot i had it!)
my score(570@850/1700/2000/1.063v) 2108
then looked up a 580 coupled with a 2600k. the majority of the scores were in the range of 1855-2084
-- which is most likely stock.
well said. i was kind of looking for justification for going full out water. was it worth spending the extra for the cooling system instead of getting the 580? btw, i paid for my whole pc on minimum wage, albeit i didnt have any other expenses. still an accomplishment for me.Edited by leighteam - 7/22/11 at 1:14am
