NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 May Jeopardize Your Holiday

North Pole, Arctic Ocean—Dec. 7, 2010— A volatile combination of ‘DirectX 11 Done Right’ and addictive games has stirred up trouble in the North Pole, where productivity has ground to a halt. The source of the slowdown seems to be product research on the new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 graphics processing unit (GPU), which is available worldwide today. On the heels of last month’s successful launch of the GeForce GTX 580 GPU, NVIDIA has delivered a the GeForce GTX 570 at a hot price point, just in time for the holidays.

“After our extensive research, we have determined that NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570-based graphics boards are the perfect stocking stuffer,” said Papa Elf, vice president of toy making for the North Pole, LLC. “When gamers think holidays, they don’t envision snowmen, reindeer and mistletoe. They envision Worgen, Goblins and crossbows with exploding arrows. They want DX11 gaming done right, they want GeForce GTX 570!”

It was this product research that has apparently put the elves toy making way behind schedule.

“We thought the GeForce GTX 570 would lighten our workload this holiday season, but then Buddy the elf set up that freakin’ LAN,” added Santa Claus, chief of holiday operations for the North Pole. “Now I can’t pry those elves off Call of Duty: Black Ops or World of WarCraft: Cataclysm. They are pwning and raiding day and night.”

Built from the DNA of the GeForce GTX 580, the GeForce GTX 570 brings a new level of DX11 price/performance to the enthusiast PC gaming market, while maintaining quiet acoustics.

Like all NVIDIA “DX11 Done Right” GPUs, the GTX 570 delivers the world’s fastest performance for DX11 games in its class. When compared with the closest competitive product, the GTX 570 is up to 128 percent faster¹ in today’s newest DX11 tessellated games, and 30 percent faster² in previous-generation DX9 and DX10 games.

“It is not about fun and games, it’s about value. GeForce GTX 570 is a great value with superior performance and better image quality than other GPUs,” said Ebenezer Scrooge, well-known consumer. “No more Ba Humbug! It’s GeForce all the way for the gamers on my list.”

The GeForce GTX 570 GPU provides full support for NVIDIA 3D Vision and NVIDIA Surround technologies. That provides the graphics horsepower and video bandwidth needed to experience games and high-definition Blu-ray movies in eye-popping stereoscopic 3D on a single display or spanning across three screens for an immersive gaming environment. And with NVIDIA SLI™ technology, the industry’s most scalable multi-GPU platform, gamers will be delighted by the sheer increase in gaming performance by adding a second GeForce GTX 570 to their PC.

The GeForce GTX 570 is available starting today from the world’s leading add-in card partners, including ASL, ASUS, Colorful, ECS, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Innovision 3D, Jetway, Leadtek, MSI, Palit, Point of View, PNY, Sparkle, Zotac and others.
