Performance in Synthetic and Semi-Synthetic Benchmarks
Futuremark 3DMark Vantage
We minimize the CPU’s influence by using the Extreme profile (1920x1200, 4x FSAA and anisotropic filtering). We also publish the results of the individual tests across all resolutions.
Our SLI tandem sets a new record of over 20,000 points, outperforming the Radeon HD 5970 by 6,000 points. So, a dual-GF110 graphics card, if it ever comes out, will be a very fast solution indeed.
The GeForce GTX 570 SLI wins each of the individual tests.
We use the Extreme profile here. As opposed to 3DMark Vantage, this profile uses a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels.
The SLI system is no faster than the single GeForce GTX 570 in our version of 3DMark11. This can hardly spoil our impression from its excellent performance in the other tests, though.
Final Fantasy XIV Official Benchmark
This benchmark can only run at 1280x720 and 1920x1080.
The GeForce GTX 570 SLI is just a little ahead of the single-chip Radeon HD 6970. We guess the upcoming Radeon HD 6990 is going to set a new record in this test.
Unigine Heaven Benchmark
We use Normal tessellation in this test.
If this were a real game rather than a benchmark, the GeForce GTX 570 SLI would be the first solution to make it playable at 1920x1080. The resolution of 2560x1600 remains unbeaten, though, just like in the resource-consuming Crysis Warhead.
