GeForce GTX 570 1280MB PCIe Display Card from PNY is
a powerful 3D display card for use with Windows computer systems. The card
installs in an available PCI Express 2.0 x16 slot. It requires an empty adjacent
slot to accommodate its double-width form factor.
The card supports a number of advanced graphics technologies. It can handle
games and applications that are written using the DirectX 11 and OpenGL 4.1
libraries with equal ease. It can be used with an optional nVIDIA 3D Vision kit
to add true 3D support to your computing experience. If your system can support
two of these cards you can take advantage of SLI technology, which effectively
doubles 3D graphics performance by spreading the rendering workload across two
The card's GPU also offers support for nVIDIA CUDA and PhysX technologies. CUDA
allows compatible applications to leverage the card's powerful processor to aid
in computations, which translates into a significant speed boost. The PhysX
engine is used by games to simulate real-world physics. As this is handled by
the GPU, it allows the computer's CPU to work on other aspects of gameplay --
which translates into smoother gameplay at higher resolution!
