GeForce GTX 580 Review

Overview
GeForce GTX 580 is a High-End Graphics Card based on the Fermi Architecture.


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.


GPU
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.


Memory
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.


Power Consumption
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.


Performance
GeForce GTX 580 competes with Radeon HD 6970 and proves to be around 10% faster.


System Suggestions
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.

I'm considering building a new PC, but I'm just wondering, will a FX-6300 be a good match with this card?

Better buy Radeon R9 270X or Radeon HD 7950, or maybe Radeon R9 280 / Radeon R7 260X Crossfired.

Yes, a gtx 580 is sufficient to max out games. Max 1920x1080p.

My Amd phenom II X 4 965 BE was bottle necking my GTX 660 .. I used to get 20 - 30 fps for some CPU dependent games like SC blacklist, Bttlefield 4, Assasins creed III.. Now i changed to intel i7 4770 and i get solid fps in all games now… CPU really matters for some games…

Nvidia is known for having very few microstutters even in sli. Nowadays with latest driers the stutters are unnoticable. For me, go for sli.

no go for a 780…..less power consumed by a boat load. Lower temps and of course the wait for efficient drivers to be released.
Sli 580s are old tech and very power hungry compared to a single 780

Sorry man I thought you said 680. I read it your comment wrong. No wonder. I wonder why I see a 6 in ever 80 digits.

But usually at higher resolutions like yours, the gtx 580 performs better.

Not much, though. This isn't really a high resolution. Far Cry 3 max settings with 4x aa the difference is a whopping 0,7fps according to benchmarks. In BF3 the difference is 3fps. Then again in Crysis 3, 660 performs better by that same margin. That might be because of the extra vram, that game takes more than 1,5gb in high/very high settings especially when aa is used.
