    Even as the GeForce GTX 580 Classified is in the oven at EVGA, the company released to market the GTX 570 Classified. This card features an entirely different design to the GTX 580 Classified. It is roughly as big as the reference design, with a cooler that resembles it. It draws power from an 8-pin and a 6-pin power connector, unlike the reference design drawing it from two 6-pin ones, leading us to believe that the design idea here is to give GTX 570 a VRM as strong as the one on the reference GTX 580, allowing good overclocking.

    The card features 1280 MB of memory over a 320-bit wide GDDR5 interface, clocked at 975 MHz (3.90 GHz effective), churning out 156 GB/s of bandwidth. The core is clocked at 822 MHz, and the 480 CUDA cores available are at 1644 MHz. These, against reference speeds of 732/1464 MHz (core/CUDA cores). The display connectivity is different from the one on the reference design, it features two DVI connectors, and one each of DisplayPort and HDMI (both full-sized). Available on EVGA's online store, the GTX 570 Classified is priced at US $359.99.

    i just wish they would up the memory amount just a tad. 1536 would be nice, 2gb would be better - then this card would be in the "lets rape a GTX580" club

    Looks nice, 2.5GB would have been better

    this card got 10 out of 12 memory blocks, so could it be that it may be based on a GTX 580 pcb or something? :twitch:

    bcs 1280 / 10 = 128mb pr. memory block and 12 * 128 = 1536mb so it could be a GTX 580 PCB ^^;

    It's basically a reference 580 PCB with some modifications.

    The reference GTX570 is based on the GTX580 PCB.

    The Reference GTX570 was the same, it even had the space for the extra 2 power phases that eVGA included:

    NVidia does this with pretty much every generation of card, the GTX480/470 was the exception.

    this is a nice product, but unfortunatelly its in standard design, with dual fan or new hsf design would be better

    yea its a reference card that is beefed up, of course they did some extra things, so thus its a custom card worth buying.

    the original GTX 570's VRM has only a few phases which really hurt it.

    This card is nothing compared to the GTX 580 classified though, the VRM is much less beefed up than the 580 classy.

    BTW its a different PCB, more like the GTX 580's PCB.

    I wouldn't use "oven" in the same paragraph with "video card", unless it's about fixing some dead solderings :)

    they have to use ovens to solder the components on, do you think someone sits there and solders everything? machines and people place comportments and then the entire card goes through a special oven.

    I know how they're made, I have a friend who sits on an automated electronics manufacturing line and manually checks this stuff, but I was mostly referring to overclockers who fry them and them put them in ovens to try to resurrect them.

    Never mind, moving right along :)
