HotHardware has a 12-page review and is one of the most informative, as it looks at how well the Nvidia GeForce GTX 570 performs running a few graphic hungry games, such as HAWX and Quake Wars. HotHardware seems to have some varying results with the 570 compared to the 480, saying that performance of each card depends on which game was played. They loved how quiet and fast the card was but did not like how power-hungry and how hot it got. Full review here.
