    Point of View GTX570 TGT Ultra Charged

    Here I go with my first express review for this forum. This is about a GTX570 TGT Ultra Charged video card from the manufacturer Point of View. Point of View, POV is a computer hardware company that produces gaming graphics cards. It was established in the year 2000. Most of its sales are in Europe, as it serves more than 30 European countries. POV is based in the Netherlands. The company also includes Point of View Taiwan, Point of View China, Point of View Hong Kong, Point of View France and Point of View USA. POV produces high-end NVIDIA gaming graphics cards, such as the latest GeForce 500 Series.

    The card comes in a very flashy box, illustrated with a mutatn girl taken from a fairytale forest. The content is a little poor or limited. In addition to the card, bring a CD with drivers, hdmi adapter, an installation guide that nobody reads, and a code to download the game Splinter Cell. The card is TGT UC version, which means factory overclocked at 810MHz on core and 990MHz on ram; while standart version is 732MHz on core and 900MHz on ram.

    Conclusions:
    Without doubt the GTX570 TGT UC has plenty of power to move fluidly any current game with maximum quality. The thermal solution is the standard but does a good job maintaining acceptable temperatures and/or normal for a card at this level. In some cases it may be noted that the difference of performance with the GTX460 is low, while in others is almost nil, this is because the resolution used (1440x900) generated bottleneck. This effect can be reduced with a higher resolution monitor (1680x1050 or 1920x1080), with a more powerful processor, or both.

    Recommended Product!
