Feedback: Gtx 470 > gtx 570 or 560 Ti

post #1 of 56
Thread Starter 
Folks,

Im thinking of dropping some dollars on a gigabyte GTX 570 to replace my Gainwood GTX 470.

http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=193_1177&products_id=16671

Purpose - Upgrade for CC

Context - My current clocks for the 470 are Core:776 / Shader: 1152 Mhz. Try as I might, Im on max volts now (1.089) and I am unable to get them any higher.

I do not want to flash the bios.

Question - Can I expect to see a reasonable increase in folding using a GTX 570 and how much extra can I expect to OC this card?

or

Am I wasting my money in upgrading?

Thanks for you input.

I'd stay away from the 570. They keep frying.

The 570 is a bit better than a GTX 480, so expect a pretty decent speed increase. It is also much quieter and cooler than your card, so it most likely overclock a bit better too. I've heard that on stock voltage they can get to stock GTX 580 speeds when overclocked.

A "good" GTX 570 will overclock possibly to the 900mhz range. Mine could do 900 stable with 1.075V. You will probably get a sizable increase of around 1.5-2K per day with a strong overclock.

I never had it long enough to really see it "fry" like the person above me said, but that is actually a legitimate concern with the GTX 570. I would not personally recommend running one at such high voltage for 24/7 folding.

just save up or do SLI 470's..if your aiming for a single card solution well YES significantly the 570 is better..just don't go over 1.08v on core..else you fry it..

Whats wrong with OP's suggestion its non reference?
post #10 of 56
If you wanna see some decent improvement, get another 470 for SLI. 570 is on par with 480, which is around 15-20% faster than 470 at stock. If you OC your 470 to 800Mhz core then it's on par with 480/570 and if you OC 570 to 900Mhz, it will be on par with 580 which is around 15-20% faster than 480/570 at stock.

And keep in mind that 570's VRM on ref design sucks big time.
