Choosing a GTX 570

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Anyone have any suggestions? Buying my brother one for his birthday to replace his 285 sli. I was thinking EVGA...but I remember a while back there was a fuss about VRMS melting on reference 570's And the HD doubleshot has terrible reviews left and right. Size and noise are not a concern for me either, I just want something reliable.

EVGA GTX 570.

I have two of them. Just get a lifetime warranty card. They're rock solid, as the VRM issues have been fixed for a while now. If you're worried about VRMs, don't over-volt. If he doesn't overclock, then there's no risk anywhere anyway.

The 570 performs like a 480, so it'll be a slight downgrade from 285 SLi. 285 SLi is a tiny bit slower than 1.5 GB 580 at average. The 580 has higher min frames, but 285's can peak max FPS a little higher when SLi scaling overshoots in games like F.E.A.R.



------------

The only thing that's really worth it is again a multi-GPU solution over 285 SLi.

The top end of that graph doesn't make sense, all the SLI scores .

Well, nVidia GPU's are better at raw power. And with somewhat better drivers, one might expect them to come out on top in an RTS. Also, those kinda differences happen on the driver side when things get messed up. Like Quad-SLi not having support, which might lead a single 590 to outdo 590 Quad by a small margin. He tested all cards again back in April, they're valid and trustable:

Im not sure if that chart is right, but the asus gtx570 dcII is nice but takes up 3 slots, well built though. Msi is probably best for future sli though, I read here that they bin their gpu's better but Im not so sure if that is true or not, they both have custom boards. Gigabyte have highest factory OC but a few people have said they dont overclock much higher in most cases.

I have owned a msi 560ti and their cooler is top notch quality, in sli temps stayed under 62c. I also own the asus gtx570 DCII and its great, still overclocking it but without maxing voltage have 815mhz@1075v with 2100 memory, I might be able to get 850 @ 1125mv Im hoping which seems to be stock gtx580 range

Eh. Try this chart then; 480 against 285 SLi. 285's beat it by a margin on the bottom tests.

http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/167?vs=158

Plus, I had 285 SLi (and still got one on my other comp) and it significantly was stronger than one of my 470's at 900 core (570 speeds).

You must also realize that the GTX 570 is DirectX 11. Two GTX 285s are only DirectX10.
