The only drawback here is that it physically requires a two-slot clearance while connected to only one PCI Express slot (2.0 or 1.1)
And this comes as a surprise?

Also, the quote from Zotac mentions tuning a GTX 580, I believe that should have been the GTX 560 that the article is about?

As to the card itself, it looks nice with a good OC, so pricing is going to be interesting.

[citation][nom]iam2thecrowe[/nom]probably costs the same as a gtx570.... Factory overclocked cards are rarely worth it.[/citation]

and are hardly ever stable. even if they are the better binned ones, you see a LOT of complaints about instability...

The Gigabyte 560 ti SOC boasts similar clocks and is much cheaper then the 570 runs cooler and is stable. I don't think FOC is worth it because you can obtain the same clocks with a msi or asus cards and not pay so much

The first thing I do is apply Arctic MX-4 thermal compound when getting anything with a heatsink, including my new GTX 570. It runs cool & quiet :)

Not necessarily. Galaxy has a GTX 560 Ti out right now that is overclocked to 900MHz and it only $250, same price as stock clocked. It's still too soon to know if there are long term stability issues though.
