In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 570 GS-GLH Edition are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Club3D CoolStream Super OC 1GB Edition.

The GTX 560 has a 100 MHz higher core clock speed but 4 fewer Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 570. The lower TMU count doesn't matter, though, as altogether the GTX 560 manages to provide 2.4 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 560 has a 100 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 570, but the GTX 570 has 8 more Render Output Units than the GTX 560. As a result, the GTX 570 exhibits a 3.2 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 560. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 560 was released less than a year after the GTX 570, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GTX 570 has 256 MB more video memory than the GTX 560, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 570 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 570 has 28.7 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 560, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 570 is slightly better than the GTX 560.

The GeForce GTX 560 Club3D CoolStream Super OC 1GB Edition has 336 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 570 GS-GLH Edition has 480. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 is 605 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 570 is 768. The GTX 570 having 163 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 570 delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 560.

The GeForce GTX 560 Club3D CoolStream Super OC 1GB Edition requires 176 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 570 GS-GLH Edition requires 219 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 560 and a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GTX 570. The GTX 570 requires 43 Watts more than the GTX 560 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 570 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 560.

Benchmarks Indicate a 7% Performance Boost over the Reference GeForce GTX 560.
GeForce GTX 570 GS-GLH Edition is a special edition of the powerful GeForce GTX 570. See the standard version for more information about it.
The differences include increased memory and core clocks, from 1900MHz to 2000MHz and from 732MHz to 800MHz, respectively.
Compared to the standard version, the performance boost is quite significant and the idea was to make it closer to the GeForce GTX 580, pushing the GPU's architecture 'GF110' to the limit. However, GeForce GTX 580, still performs much better, as it features extra CUDA cores and a higher quality Bus Width and the clock increases do not fully compensate this disadvantage but shorten it considerably.
All games, including demanding one's, will run on the highest settings.
