Launches factory-overclocked GTX570.

Press release:
ASUS has unveiled its new GeForce® GTX 500 Series DirectX® 11 graphics cards, the GTX 580 and GTX 570. They feature the pinnacle of NVIDIA® GF110 Fermi technology, using lower power draw to deliver more performance. They are also excellent overclockers, allowing ASUS exclusive Voltage Tweak technology to go even further, giving users access to potential 50%* core clock boosts.

The GeForce® GTX 570 is the newest addition to the GeForce® GTX 500 lineup, overclocked to 742MHz on the GPU core. It also features 480 CUDA cores with the CUDA clock at 1484MHz. The large 1.28GB GDDR5 video memory is set to 3.8GHz effective rate.

The extreme processing power of the ASUS Republic of Gamers Rampage III Extreme motherboard with three ASUS GeForce® GTX 580 graphics cards was recently put to the test in a record-breaking endeavor, where this ultimate combination served up an incredible 3DMark03 score of 217252 marks.

ASUS’ commitment to innovation is unbreakable, with a passion for continually producing hardware that brings users cutting edge performance.

Product Highlights

  • The ASUS GeForce® GTX 570 graphics card ships factory overclocked to 742MHz and features 480 CUDA cores in the updated GF110 GPU core with its CUDA clock at 1484MHz. This enables faster overall system performance, as the powerful GPU works alongside the CPU to accelerate general computing tasks in addition to driving fantastic graphics performance, NVIDIA® PhysX® and 3D stereoscopic visuals.
  • ASUS exclusive Voltage Tweak takes advantage of the GeForce® GTX 570’s performance-tweaked and power efficient design to boost core frequencies by up to 50% with appropriate cooling support. It offers an intuitive user interface that consumers can easily become acquainted with.
  • ASUS GeForce® GTX 580 graphics cards broke world performance records in conjunction with the ROG Rampage III Extreme motherboard. This configuration achieved the incredible 3DMark03 score of 217252 marks.
  • NVIDIA© PhysX® advanced in-game physics create more realistic and immersive action in PC games while NVIDIA© 3D Vision™ Surround presents PC games, movies and photos in 3D across up to three displays.

    ASUS is a well-known innovator of technology, but there are times when they recognize a good idea and strive to simply make it better. Queue the GeForce GTX 580 video card. Armed with the maximum number of CUDA cores and PolyMorph engines NVIDIA can deliver with the Fermi architecture, the GeForce GTX 580 represents their trophy effort to seize the performance market. While being similar to the GeForce GTX 480, the GeForce GTX 580 design updates the Fermi formula, improves upon the power appetite, reduces heat output, and increases graphical frame rate performance. ASUS raises the GF110 fixed function clock speed from 772 MHz to 782, while the graphics cores now operate at 1564 MHz. 1536MB of GDDR5 video frame buffer use a familiar 384-bit memory bus, clocked to 1002MHz for a 4008MHz data rate. This is before ASUS Voltage Tweak gives us access to unlocked potential.
