No Info, Previews or release dates on Asus GTX 570 DCII. Why ?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello there fellow OCNers. Im buying a GTX 570 next week, and I have fallen in love with Asus' DirectCU II model. I know, its a 3 slot cooler and probably overkill, but god, its just so beautiful ( to me atleast ). But I can find absolutely no info, other than whats on Asus' official site, about this card. The GTX 580, on the other hand, is already listed and priced on online retailers sites, and there has been a few reviews and previews already. How come there is plenty of info on the GTX 580, but none on the 570 ? Shouldnt they be released at the same time ? If anyone has any info about the GTX 570 design/performance or EU price and release date, or about why its missing, Id greatly appreciate it.

if you are still looking for information, it is released as of today in the US on Newegg.com

Wait, so let me get a few things straight about the card (because I have just filed a return on my EVGA GTX 570 HD).

It is not a reference card
It is designed to run quietly and efficiently
Because of the non-reference higher quality vram, it not only comes stock with a higher voltage, but can go up to 1.225v

Is everything that I have wrong?

Also, why havent I heard about this card befor I found it on newegg today? Is there something wrong about the non-reference DCII ASUS design?

I don't know why you haven't heard about it... since this thread was started 3 weeks ago. People have known about it for a while... It was just released for sale on Newegg.com a few days ago, I ordered it the first day it was available.

if you'd like to see my thoughts on the card. There is also a link in that post to a professional web review done prior to release as well... There is nothing wrong with the design, if anything it is far superior than the reference design when it comes to cooling. and it is very very quiet.

but to answer your questions:
1- no it is not a refernece card, its a triple slot cooler design. and the mosfets and other components are of a higher quality design.
2- the stock voltage of this card comes in at 1v. I can move my card to 800MHz without having to touch the voltage at all.
3- I've tuned my card up to 900MHz at 1.075v
4- Cooling OC'd to 900MHz it idles at 25C (same as stock or 800) and under load hits 56C (give or take a degree, check out my thread)
under load at stock and 800MHz it only hits 48C.
5- the fan idles at 1110RPM (my old 460 was at 1340) its much quieter than even the less powerful card. Under load it seems to sit about 1350 even OC'd
