Point of View/TGT has prepared a successor to the GTX 570 Beast card – the GTX 570 Beast 2560MB. We’re talking about a graphics card that runs at some seriously fast clocks – 841MHz GPU and 990MHz memory (3960MHz effectively). The cooling and quiet operation was provided by Zalman’s 2.5 slot wide cooler. Note that reference GTX 570’s clocks are 732MHz for the GPU and 950MHz (3800MHz effectively) for the memory.
Apart from the factory overclock, special dual-fan cooling and double the frame buffer of the reference GTX 570, the GTX 570 Beast 2.5GB comes with a rich selection of video outs.
The GTX 570 Beast 2.5GB is a factory overclocked graphics card, but the handpicked GF110 GPUs that TGT uses on Point of View graphics card can squeeze out even more punch, provided the user wants them to of course.
Thanks to the efficient dual-fan cooling, we had no trouble with GPU temperatures, not even after overclocking the card to 895MHz. GPU temperatures are around 78°C, which is lower than on the reference card, despite the fact that the GTX 570 Beast 2.5GB runs 109MHz faster. The fan is almost inaudible, be it 2D mode or gaming.
Stay tuned as we’ll have the full review up soon
