PALIT Microsystems, one of largest graphics manufacturers in the world caused a lot of headache at nVidia after the company leaked out a PDF document containing the details of GTX 570.

According to the story, the part is supposed to hit hard against the upcoming AMD Radeon HD 6900 series, i.e. HD 6950 and HD 6970 which are set to debut one week after the hard launch of GTX 570. Given the specifications, you can see that the part is positioned just beneath GeForce GTX 480, which is slowly but certainly being phased out as the GF100 die is too valuable as a Tesla and Quadro parts are selling like hot cakes.

The document found its way to Swedish site Sweclockers. Given that a picture is worth a thousand words, we leave you with the leaked image:
