    Looking at the asus and palit boards side by side the palit looks very different. Sort of barren. I know it could just be variation between cards but I can't help but think on average these palits won't overclock as well as the reference boards.

    Even if it won't overclock as well, it's already 5% ahead anyway.

    Even with the "lesser" overclock, it still performed a bit better.

    Overclocking makes it the real power guzzler

    I really like the design of the card. The two fans make it look badass IMO.

    I'm a tiny-weany bit disappointed. While top-line performance is good, every statistic is worse than the GTX 460. I think I'd rather SLI the 460 than own a 570, which means it didn't meet my expectations unfortunately. It doesn't bode well for a GTX560 model :(

    GTX560 is in all likelyhood a fully capable GF104 (GTX460) with all 384 sp's active, and higher clocks. I'd guesstimate 750-825mhz core and ~4ghz memory. this should already make it as fast or faster than a GTX470 while running cooler and quieter. I'd assume less power draw too.

    Me too, I think they're "good" :)

    nice review w1z, great cooling but i hate this limit overclocking it should be better than reference design
    w1z did u try any voltage tweaking on this card, did the non chil chip do the job, how u got with voltage tweaking.

    Wow, when overclocked it surpassed the GTX 580, this could be a way to save some $$ and get GTX 580 performance.

    ^^ u got that right, and power consumption with OC seems at par with GTX580

    But I think we shouldn't jump into final conclusions about these cards especially when HD6970 and HD6950 launch next week.

    Temps?

    Did I miss something, or were there no idle/load temps in the review?
