Why doesn't nvidia send ME any GTX570's?

The battle between AMD and Nvidia is getting fiercier...and both are trying to bring new cards to get market share and clinch each other...This one is nice Graphic Card but it has certain issues...Still I am hoping for a best PERFORMING card.

Look at it! It does not start the values at 0 but at 58. look at the numbers 65 looks like it is half of 73. Excessive gap. Visually, I find it deceptive. All other graphs are fairly represented.

Got me one of these, and it's purty! Switched in a single 570 in place of 2 8800GTs in SLI, and man, what a difference.  The first thing I noticed was how quiet the fan is - can hardly hear the 570 after the double-jet-engine-scream of the dual 8800s.  The performance is fantastic, too.

Happiness is a warm Nvidia card.

Now what really matters is how these overclock under water, not stock settings. There really aren't many people that buy high end cards and don't watercool / aftermarket aircool them. They are way too noisy and hot. Not doing that would be like using he stock cooler for ur cpu... it's just wrong... wrong in so many ways. They need to benchmark how these scale in tri sli since that is the real sweetspot. The main negative of the 570 is that it puts out less performance per mhz than the 480. Heat and noise should be a nonissue for high end cards. They should really all be sold with high end aftermarket coolers/ blocks already installed. Would be a cold day in hell before I toss 3 of those in my rig without wb on them.

I wish in future reviews, you (actually many other reviewers) would put the result of a benchmark from at least one card from a previous generation or two, just for comparison's sake.

Not everyone can keep up to date from one gen to the next.  Some are actually one, two or more years behind.  It would be nice not having to dig up previous articles just to see how the cards used to preform.

The comentary about the results and spects couldnt possibly more far off. This is one of the most biased and fake reviews ive seen from MaxPC in a long time.

Your name says it all.. Dude they don't bake the benchmarks. Just look at the hardware layout compared to the GTX480. It's pretty much the same card but with a few cuts here and a few additions there to improve performance. Don't be a tool or a freaking Nimrod. You probably made accusations like this when MaximumPC showed how much more powerful the Intel 980X if compared to AMD's fastest 6 core processor. You are the first AMD fan boy to scream about obvious benchmark results and comparisons. Back in the day fan boys from both sides would scream about benchmarks when either side had a difference of just a few FPS. Now times have changed and we are talking more than 15FPS difference and that is significant especially considering the prices involved.

Can you run the GTX570 in three way SLI? I was expecting good performance on par with the 480 but I didn't expect it to utterly destroy the 480 like it did. Well I'm exaggerating a little bit, but the scores don't lie. I wan't three of these cards in a box with an 980X CPU.

So Can it do 3way sli and when is Intel going to release a 8 or more core processor? Is intel waiting for AMD to unleash it's bulldozer?

intel 8 cores will be out in Q3/4 of 2011. They are Tri sli compatible, but I would suggest never using AMD cpus with nVIDIA cards. They just don't work as well together and the benchmarks prove that, generally on vantage and heaven. Take a look at some. The amount of cores of the cpu doesn't really matter, it is the speed of each core that does. When playing a game you will see better performance with a 920 clocked at 4.6ghz than a 980x @ 4.6ghz because each core is clocked much higher. This will be true until games use more than 4 cores at a time, most only use 1 or 2. Anything faster than a 580 is pointless due to bottleneck which you will have unless you drop $2500 on a ballin wc setup. I would personally never trade my 3 480s for 3 570s since they aren't as great of overclockers. 580s on the other hand I def would.

americaeh

throughout the whole thing you refere to a "gtx 6870" when its really a amd radeon hd 6870.....

I was just noticing that and I was about to comment about it. You beat me to it.

This is a great card, but I'm waiting for the release of the GTX 560 so I can run two of them in SLI for the new rig I'm building.

My only question: What are the temps that these cards run at?

Go to Tom's Hardware.  I love MaxPC, but they usually leave out numbers like this.  http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gtx-570-gf110-performance,2806.html

What are you talking about? Toms Hardware benchmarks pretty much reflect whats in this article. Hell in most benchmarks the 570GTX beat the 6850Crossfire setup. I'm sure you didn't mean it but it seems your post was trying to show up MaxPC as trying to hide something that after I read the toms hardware article you linked doesn't show any benchmark scores that differ from those above. You do realize that different organizations test things differently. 

I think it's Toms Hardware or is it HardOCP that refuses to do an Apples to Apples comparison of it's hardware while benchmarking. They generally make the settings the best for that video card and then benchmark it and compare the numbers to other video cards that they themselves have their setting and resolution set for optimal performance.
