Graphics card manufacturer Gainward today introduced its powerful, custom-made version of the GeForce GTX 570 in the form of the “Phantom”. In the words of Gainward, the “Phantom” is the best graphics card offering “low-temperature gaming performance and low-acoustic-noise character, providing the most quiet sustainability and all-mighty performance capability.”
OC3D: The GTX570 has been one of the big surprises of recent times, fixing all the issues of the original Fermi nVidia cards and performing incredibly well for the reasonable price charged. With a good chip you can expect to overclock it up to stock GTX580 speeds.
Today however we have a new model from them labelled the Phantom. The surprise being that rather than concentrate on pushing the Silicon as hard as possible they've brought us a very different looking cooling solution indeed and only overclocked the GPU mildly.
Anyone familiar with Gainward knows by now that Goes Like Hell is a synonym for speed.
The graphics card is based on Nvidia Fermi architecture, meaning the GF110 chip which is Nvidia’s most advanced graphics chip to date. GTX 570 offers plenty of performance in the high-end segment and the only faster card is the GTX 580, which is again based on the GF110. The opposing red camp offers the new HD 6970, which is comparable to reference GTX 570 cards.
Nvidia today formally announced its GeForce GTX 570 GPU, representing the latest addition to the GTX 500 series and offering up "explosive performance and quiet gaming." Strong marketing words, for sure, but nothing compared to Gainward's nomenclature.
Coinciding with the launch, Gainward outted two GTX 570 videocards, including the Gainward GeForce GTX 570 1280MB "Golden Sample" Goes Like Hell edition.
