Synthetic Benchmark Performance

Unigine Heaven 2.1

This benchmark has become a standard for DirectX 11 video card tests, as it features
tessellation and SSAO (screen-space ambient occlusion).

1920x1080 resolution, Tessellation: Extreme, Full Screen, Shaders: High, 16x AF

Stone Giant

Stone Giant is a new DirectX 11 benchmark that utilizes heavy amounts of tessellation, and also requires that the video card rendering the scene can push large amounts of geometry.

Resolution: 1920x1080, Tessellation: High, 16x AF

3DMark Vantage

3Dmark Vantage is an industry-standard GPU benchmarking tool which tests the DirectX 9 and DirectX 10 capabilities of hardware. It also includes several CPU tests and PhysX support.

Performance Preset, 1280x1024 Resolution

3DMark 11

Finnish software company Futuremark, formerly, founded in 1997 by
demoscene mavens from FutureCrew, just released their new PC gaming benchmarking tool
3Dmark 11 on December 7 2010. Designed to measure your PC’s gaming performance,
3DMark 11 makes extensive use of all the new features in DirectX 11 including tessellation,
compute shaders and multi-threading.

Performance (P) 1280x720, Extreme (X) 1920x1080

Synthetic Benchmark Performance Conclusion:
Given the consistency of the results, I feel that I should just sum up the experience of running these benchmarks with a GTX 580, then two 570s. Again, just like the gaming performance, the GTX 570 is capable of delivering an almost GTX 580 level of geometry and tessellation throughput, with the EVGA SC card often knocking on the GTX 580's door, being down only around 5%. Given the results I've seen since the introduction of the GeForce GTX 480, it's very likely that the GTX 570 performs on-par with the "old" flagship card, and may outperform it in certain situations.
