If you're here from a Google search, our GTX 570 review is HERE. Thanks!

Conclusions
The lowdown on the GeForce GTX 570 is pretty straightforward: performance on par with a GeForce GTX 480, power consumption and noise levels on par with a GTX 470, and a price tag of 350 bucks. The card's stock cooler is nice and quiet, too.

We would have liked to see the GTX 570 separate itself from last year's Radeon HD 5870 in several games where it simply could not, such as Bad Company 2 and StarCraft II. Still, in the overall picture, the GTX 570 is clearly a notch above cheaper solutions like the GeForce GTX 460 1GB and the Radeon HD 6870. At high resolutions and visual quality levels in some of the most demanding DX11 games, the GTX 570 cranks out appreciably higher frame rates. I'm not convinced making the leap up to a GTX 570 is worth doing if you're running a single display that's two megapixels or less—including the incredibly popular 1080p resolution. A single Radeon HD 6870 or GTX 460 is probably all you need for a couple of megapixels. If you're planning on playing games on a four-megapixels monster like the 30" Dell on our GPU test rig—and I highly recommend doing so, if you have the means—then the 570 is worthy of a long, hard look.

You can get higher performance for just a little more money out of a pair of Radeon HD 6850s in CrossFireX, and I suppose that's AMD's closest competing product offering right now. But again, the foibles of multi-GPU configs will be in play, as will the stark fact of looming obsolescence with the Radeon HD 6900 series imminent. We said a week ago that we wouldn't pull the trigger on a pair of 6850s right now, and we remain in that holding pattern.

Our final take on the GTX 570 will have to remain a work in progress for the same reason. Stay tuned to this same channel for next week's episode of GPU Wars, when the truth about the 2010 crop of graphics chips will finally be revealed.
Looking good, waiting for Antilles.

The link is still blocked mayby WikiLeaks should check this top secret.
This part from the "Techreport Conclusion" about next week is very interesting:

In the meantime here are the graph images from the Techreport GTX 570 review, probably good for somebody who likes to order the card from Newegg right now.

NDA is 6AM PST, it's not 6AM PST.

I may have one of these in my box with the Phenom II 965/Dell 3007 WFP HC. Hard to tell, wasn't retail pack.

My impressions of gaming with it so far are very favorable, this is 2010's 6800GT. Bet they sell a ton today, $350 is a VERY nice launch price for a card of this caliber. :)

Or they can just wait an hour and fifty minutes for me to put my review up here. :D

$359.99 = £228.191

Not a bad price at all, Well if the stores here in the UK sell them at that price.

EDIT: well they have them listed here at Overclockers.co.uk But when the GTX 570 link is clicked on the left it comes up with the message "Sorry, but no products are currently available within this category."

True, but why wait when they can buy the card few hours earlier. Wonder if Newegg will get no more cards from Nvidia for breaking the NDA. j/k

Anyway here are more reviews i guess now it's legal since your review is out. Again j/k

After reading most of the reviews it looks like Nvidia did a good job with the GTX 570 but it was pretty much expected after the great GTX 580 reviews.

Both cards are very nice upgrade for some people, but the last year HD 5970 is still the king so I'm waiting for the Antilles.

Guess most people who don't buy Nvidia cards cards exclusively will also wait for the AMD Cayman cards to compare, rumored to be on the market December 15.
