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.



Test system:

CPU: Core 2 Quad Q6600@3.2GHz (8x400)
Cooler: OCZ Vendetta
MB: Gigabyte X48T-DQ6 rev1.3 bios F6
Ram: 2x2GB OCZ Gold DDR3-1600MHz 8-8-8-24-1T
Monitor: LG Flatron L192WS 19" 1400x900
HD: Western Digital Caviar Blue 320GB + 2x500GB
PSU: Corsair TX-750W
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit
Video Drivers: AMD/Ati Catalyst 11.2 - nVidia ForceWare 266.58

ForceWare 270.61 and Catalyst 11.3 versions were not available at the moment of doing all the test.
HIS HD5670 IceQ 1GB GDDR5 and Sparkle GTX460-768MB GDDR5 video cards were included in order to have some comparison points.



To the grain... how is its performance?

3DMark 06/Vantage

Unigine Heaven 2.5

Aliens vs Predator

Battelfield: Bad Company 2

Crysis 2

DiRT 2

FarCry 2

F1 2010

HAWK

Lost Planet 2

Medal Of Honor

Need For Speed: Shift 2 Unleashed

Resident Evil 5

Folding At Home

Temperatures

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!

+1, this is the third in as many days featuring a GTX570, on of which was mine. I'd love a user review section.

Love the review dude, your graphs kick ass and the info is vey comprehensive :)
