The reference designed GTX 570 doesn't have a lot going on with a fairly common seen cooler being implemented. Of course, MSI has jazzed it up with its own sticker, but really, for the most part there's not much else going on here.
Taking a quick spin around the card, we've got two 6-pin PCI-E power connectors at the back of the card, while closer to the front we've got two SLI connectors in the event you want to add a second or third to the system. On the connectivity front we've got two Dual-Link DVI connectors and a single Mini HDMI port. The second half of the bracket here is a vent that helps the hot air escape.
On the specifications front we've got no surprises with the card being a reference one, which is exactly what we wanted.
That means the core comes in at 732MHz, the Shader clock 1464MHz and the 1280MB of GDDR5 memory carrying a clock of 3800MHz QDR. Most of the other specifications we've covered like the 320-Bit memory bus and 480 Shaders, so we'll get stuck into the benchmarking side of things now.
