GeForce GTX 580 is a High-End Graphics Card based on the Fermi Architecture.
The Fermi Architecture was first 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.
It equips a GPU Codenamed GF110-375-A1 which has 16 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 512 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 48 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 772MHz.
The GPU accesses a 1.5GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 384-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1002Hz.
With a rated board TDP of 244W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with one available 6-pin and one available 8-pin connectors.
GeForce GTX 580 competes with Radeon HD 6970 and proves to be around 10% faster.
GeForce GTX 580 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a Decent Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Bought one of these in 2011, and it was amazing. Got another one in 2012 and it got even better. Now I'm with a laptop, but these served me well. Played everything I threw at them maxed out at 1080p without a hitch. highly recommend
will my cpu bottleneck this gpu?
This one or Radeon R9 270 DirectCU II OC Edition ???
I'm considering building a new PC, but I'm just wondering, will a FX-6300 be a good match with this card?
Probably one of the greatest GPU's I've ever had, and I'll keep using it until it's totally broken, I love it!
guys will this bottleneck on my cpu? , phenom x4 965 be the c3 version , i will upgrade in future but on low budget so i wanted to get this graphics card because its cheap but very fast i will also uprade psu before i buy card but will it bottle neck on my cpu? if so will it be severe? thanks!
7% better than a gtx 590
30% better than a gtx 580
38% better than a gtx 570
Should I go Sli 580 or just save money for a single 780?
Has my card got more or the same power than this one, the GTX 580?
awesome! the same!
