In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 570M are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 445M v2.

The GeForce GTX 570M has a 5 MHz higher core clock speed and 32 more Texture Mapping Units than the GT 445M. This results in the GeForce GTX 570M providing 18.5 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 GeForce GTX 570M has a 5 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Render Output Units than the GT 445M. This results in the GeForce GTX 570M providing 4.7 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GeForce GTX 570M was released less than a year after the GT 445M, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GeForce GTX 570M has 512 MB more video memory than the GT 445M, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GeForce GTX 570M also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce GTX 570M has 32 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 445M, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 570M is noticeably better than the GT 445M.

The GeForce GT 445M v2 has 144 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 570M has 336. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 445M is 164 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 570M is 386. The GeForce GTX 570M having 222 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce GTX 570M delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 445M.

The GeForce GT 445M v2 requires 35 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 570M requires 75 Watts. The GeForce GTX 570M requires 40 Watts more than the GT 445M to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce GTX 570M may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GT 445M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 445M v2 is a Fast-Middle-Class Mobile Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Fermi Architecture.

Architecture
The Fermi Architecture is manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GF106-N11E-GE-A1 which has 3 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 144 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 570MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 625MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Optimus, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 35W, it is suited for 15" or larger laptops.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance almost on level with the desktop GeForce GT 450 v4.

System Suggestions
We recommend a decent processor (Intel Core i5 Mobile) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 445M v2.

It equips a GPU Codenamed GF114 which has 7 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 336 Shader Processing Units, 56 TMUs and 24 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 575MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1.5GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 192-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 750MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, Optimus, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 75W, it is suited for large laptops.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance somewhat above a desktop GeForce GTX 550 Ti.
