Palit spoils GeForce GTX 570 specs before debut

Video card maker Palit late today spoiled NVIDIA's plans for its next 500-series graphics chipset with details given out days ahead of launch. Sales sheets sent out early have shown the GeForce GTX 570, a more mainstream alternative to the GTX 580, that would potentially outperform the older GTX 480 flagship while still costing less. The design would have a lower 1.28GB of RAM and a narrower 320-bit bus, according to Kitguru's copy, but would boost the main clock speed from 700MHz to 732MHz while also using faster individual shaders and video memory.

All the hardware features of the GTX 580 should be present, including OpenGL 4.1 support and lower power use, although the lower core count, reduced memory and reduced bandwidth will make two billion polygons per second an unlikely figure.

The board is expected to launch on December 7 and is thought to be getting a 'hard' launch where cards are available on or shortly after the release day. Palit didn't give out its pricing with the leak, but the GTX 580's $499 pricing suggests NVIDIA will aim for $399 on the slightly slower but less costly to make add-on. Both upgrade cards and pre-assembled PCs are likely to use the 570 from the start.
