7 – ASUS GTX 570 DirectCU II Final Words

Like the HD 6950 DirectCU II, ASUS’s GTX 570 DirectCU II has very good overclocking capabilities and is able to work at high overclocked speeds with very low noise level. The high quality components and customized PCB will make overclockers happy. ASUS’s GTX 570 is in the same range of performance than a Radeon HD 6970 while offering superior tessellation prestation. And overclocked, this GTX 570 is able to compete with a GTX 580 for a smaller price!

– GTX 500 hardware power limiter DISABLED by ASUS
– Very good overclocking capabilities
– High quality components and FurMark approved VRMs!
– High performance cooling (DirectCU II)
– Quiet cooling even when highly stressed
– Backplate
– High tessellation performance (in both OpenGL 4 and Direct3D 11)
– PhysX and CUDA support

– bulky 3-slot height cooler
– very basic bundle (no geeky stuff)
– backplate hidding the power LEDs

    I think you should test this card with EVGA OC Scanner (the one I modified) just to check the real artifact-free OC.

    But there is Nothing In the fan…
    What should I do??

    I’m not sure what I’m missing here. I recently got my hands on one of these cards and knew it was going to be a true force to be reckoned with. While playing Skyrim with the high res pac I get jumpy frames 60fps-0fps; Yet my hardware isn’t even trying! (the fan speed stays the same and the temp never rises) I’m confused why it’s holding back! I’ve played Crysis 2 DX11 and Arkham City on full specs without a problem – why little DX10 Skyrim has low frames I’m baffled. I was going to save the benchmarking until I was able to finish my build off with 8 more gigs of ram and an SSD but the recent speedbump in gaming brought me to it early. I was astounded how low I was ranking, to say the least. >=( Furmark was the first and I’m about to try unigine and 3dmark and probably be twice as disappointed.

    I was wondering how the numbers here and on every other benchmark were attained with less of an overclock than I even have, when I haven’t touched overclocking yet since I wasn’t worried until now! furmark put me at just over 2,000 (36FPS) >=(!!!
    Hardware: (everything @ stock specifications)
    i5 2500k @3.3GHz w/ a Zalman fan cooler
    Asus P8Z68-V Pro mobo
    2 4GB corsair vengeance @ 9-9-9-24
    1080W PS

    >>>And yes, I forgot to mention, I have the updated drivers. Even the Nvidia one specifically for the Skyrim high res pack.

    Hello nick, dont have any experiance with your card, but running skyrim on full specs with all the GFX and hi res mods, on a setup less powerfull than yours. The only thing I had to do is patch the main executable so it allows more then 2GB ram usage. Try doing that there are guides online, let us know how you get on.

    Thank’s! please add Assassin’s Creed II Gaming benchmark!
    Thank’s Again!
