In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro K600 PNY 1GB Edition are marginally better than the AMD Radeon HD 5570 1024MB.

The K600 PNY has a 226 MHz higher core clock speed but 4 fewer Texture Mapping Units than the HD 5570. The lower TMU count doesn't matter, though, as altogether the K600 PNY manages to provide 1 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 K600 PNY has a 226 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Render Output Units than the HD 5570. This results in the K600 PNY providing 8.8 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 K600 PNY was released over three years more recently than the HD 5570, and so the K600 PNY is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the HD 5570 when running the latest games.

The Quadro K600 PNY 1GB Edition and the Radeon HD 5570 1024MB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The K600 PNY has 0.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 5570, which means that the memory performance of the K600 PNY is marginally better than the HD 5570.

The Quadro K600 PNY 1GB Edition has 192 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 5570 1024MB has 400. However, the actual shader performance of the K600 PNY is 168 and the actual shader performance of the HD 5570 is 169. The HD 5570 having 1 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the K600 PNY performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The K600 PNY transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 5570. This means that the K600 PNY is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 5570. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the K600 PNY should consume less power than the HD 5570.

The Quadro K600 PNY 1GB Edition requires 41 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 5570 1024MB requires 42 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the K600 PNY and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 5570. The HD 5570 requires 1 Watts more than the K600 PNY to run. The difference is not significant enough for the HD 5570 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the K600 PNY.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Quadro K600 PNY 1GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's Professional Quadro K600, created by PNY.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit runs at the same speed.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock runs at 667MHz and the Frame Buffer was Doubled to 1GB. This is a gimmick and in no way benefits the GPU.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling System remains the same.

Without Overclocking Out of The Box, Quadro K600 PNY 1GB Edition is as fast as the reference Quadro K600.
The Evergreen series is a family of GPUs developed by AMD graphics products division. The existence was spotted on a presentation slide from AMD Technology Analyst Day July 2007 as 'R8xx'. ATI held a press event in the USS Hornet museum on September 10, 2009 and announced ATI Eyefinity multi-display technology and specifications of the Radeon HD 5800 series' variants. The first variants of the Radeon HD 5800 series were launched September 23, 2009, with the HD 5700 series launching October 12 and HD 5970 launching on November 18 The HD 5670, was launched on January 14, 2010, and the HD 5500 and 5400 series were launched in February of 2010, completing what has appeared to be most of ATI's Evergreen GPU lineup.
Demand so greatly outweighed supply that more than two months after launch, many online retailers were still having trouble keeping the 5800 and 5900 series in stock.
