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.
