NVIDIA continues at a high pace with the GeForce GTX 500 family. We are still waiting for AMD and its new flagship series Radeon HD 6900 and we now have new information that confirms a launch date for GeForce GTX 570, the successor to GeForce GTX 470.

The graphics card builds on the new circuit GF110 – the same GPU NVIDIA uses in GeForce GTX 580 – but has been crippled a bit. The number of CUDA cores has dropped from 512 to 480 while the memory bus is narrower and the clock frequencies turned down.

According to a product sheet from Palit, GeForce GTX 570 will have a GPU clock of 732 MHz and 1280 MB GDDR5 memory at 3800 MHz, which can be compared to 775/4000 MHz with big brother GeForce GTX 580. Palit has used a custom cooler with its model.

The prices are yet to be revealed, but the launch is set for December 7th, 2010, which hints that NVIDIA is aiming to take advantage of another big game launch, namely the Cataclysm expansion pack for World of Warcraft. This follows the pattern set with the launch of GeForce GTX 580, when it timed the launch of Call of Duty: Black Ops.
