Swedish website Sweclockers have leaked a datasheet pertaining to Palit’s reference GeForce GTX 570. At first glance, the GTX 570 reference design is visually identical to the GTX 580. As expected, the GTX 570 features GF110 with 1 SM disabled, a total of 480 CUDA cores – much like the GTX 480. Like the GTX 470, the GTX 570 has 1 MC disabled, for a 320-bit memory interface mated to 950MHz 1280MB GDDR5. The memory bandwidth is 151.9 GB/s, well below the GTX 480. However, the GTX 570 is clocked at a healthy 732 MHz core, 1464 MHz shaders. Power consumption is rated at 225W. Surprisingly, the GTX 570 requirements lists a 6+6-pin power connector configuration, which indicates NVIDIA may be counting on its power monitoring circuitry. This could limit overclocking, however.

The performance of the GTX 570 is expected to be similar to the GTX 480. At higher resolutions and IQ, the GTX 480 might have an advantage. The GTX 570 will run much cooler and consume less power for the similar performance. Display outputs and other features are identical to the GTX 580.

The release date is set on December 7th, with AMD’s Radeon HD 6900 series expected to release the week after, i.e. week starting December 13th. The missing piece of information is the price, which is rumoured to be under $400.
