I have a GTX 570 that's been sitting in the house for years as an emergency/backup GPU and just wondering if there is any sense of trying to re-home it vs just throwing it out. A quick google search suggests that it needs to run real old drivers.

definitely rehome it! you should be able to get around $200 for it.

GTX 570, not RX 570. :) (If you know people who'd be willing to pay $200 for a 12 yr old vid card, please forward their contact info.... ;) ).

As far as keep vrs trash....


Looks like it performs better than a 1030 which is still a viable card for some use case scenarios so I'd say it was worth keeping.

Heh,

I still have a ASUS GTX260 Matrix (which I won on here via a Folding Contest), an EVGA 9800GT (The One) and 2 PNY 9800GX2's from the good ol days.
Wonder if I could get any of them to even run now lol.

And yeah, it's old drivers, but it's that final big drop that Nvidia did for W 10 before they dropped support. I can only suppose it's still a viable driver set.

Haha yeah I figured these Fermi cards were "worthless". I gave my GTX580 away a couple weeks ago.

They might actually be more useful since Ryzen came out than prior. Some folks need GFX cards for their Ryzen procs since there's no IGP. (I'll be throwing a gt 1030 onto the ryzen build I'm putting together later this week).

I really struggle with using userbenchmark. Not only have they been proven to be 100% lying about AMD vs Intel processor rankings, but I can't wrap my head around how they get their data and if it's accurate enough to trust. Well, sounds like it's usable for an emergency card in case I need to ever replace a defective GPU/etc. Not going to be able to do much gaming wise, but the drivers should allow potato gaming?

The biggest issue with userbenchmark is that the top number is completely unlinked from performance numbers. They throw age, and market share into that top score.

I only use it for a quick look at the "effective performance" to get a general idea of how two pieces of hardware compare to each other.
