EVGA Doubles Memory on GeForce GTX 570

EVGA released a new non-reference design graphics card based on the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 (part: 025-P3-1579-AR), boasting of twice the memory amount, at 2560 MB (2.5 GB). The 2.5 GB of GDDR5 memory is installed over a 320-bit wide memory interface, with a memory clock speed of 950 MHz (3.80 GHz effective), providing a memory bandwidth of 152 GB/s. The added memory could improve performance on HD gaming with 120 Hz refresh-rates (for flicker-free stereo 3D). The core is clocked at 732 MHz, with the 480 CUDA cores running at 1464 MHz. The card uses EVGA's in-house design GF110 PCB, that is shorter than NVIDIA's reference design. Its cooler resembles that of the GTX 560 Ti, and is designed to be quieter. Display outputs include two DVI, and one each of HDMI 1.4a and DisplayPort. EVGA's GTX 570 HD 2.5 GB is priced at US $399.99 at EVGA's online store.

I'm weary of buying this. I want a 2gb or more nvidia card but all these double memory cards coming out now are half past EOL. On top of that the evga versions of this stuff are anywhere from $20-$60 more than the competition. So if someone else makes one next month I'd be screwed.

Can it use that much? Seems like a way to sell more cards. I doubt it is worth $400.

Given that the GTX570 has 40 ROPs, a 320bit memory interface and a strong 'front end' it can quite happily make use of more than 1.28GB of memory. Whether it will be able to use all of the 2.5GB is relatively unknown but th extra memory will certainly come in handy for users of surround-like resolutions who also don't want to fork out for 2 3GB GTX580's.

GTX570 is EOL? :wtf: IIRC, aren't they near high end and there isn't any GTX6's or HD7k's yet?!

I think he means half way through their effective lifespan (ie 6 months into a years lifespan).

Indeed, the GTX570 was begging for more Vram as it makes a very good proposition for Surround gaming on a relative budget.

i lol'ed at that. i think battlefield 3 with 3 monitors would definitely use more than 2 gigs of memory. probably the only game though.
