How well can the GeForce GTX 580 SLI run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

This graphics card offers upper mid level gaming performance. The GeForce GTX 580 SLI GPU could struggle if it was to try and run the most demanding games available today, but it meets a lot of game system requirements found in today’s games. GeForce GTX 580 SLI is capable of DirectX 11 gaming requirements.

How well will the GeForce GTX 580 SLI run 2019 games? We will take a look at the biggest releases and frames per second analysis on Ultra graphics settings. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 366 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

The GeForce GTX 580 SLI graphics card is predicted to return a weak performance on Death Stranding at 1080p of 12 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is Need For Speed Heat which we saw got playable frame rates of 33 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order, which was getting 12 FPS under tests.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we researched Death Stranding on the GeForce GTX 580 SLI and predict it will get a weak set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra predictions at 1440p - L: 24FPS, M: 19FPS, H: 13FPS, U: 9FPS. Another popular game to test at 1440p with this card was Need For Speed Heat which seemed playable in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 25 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order where its Ultra 1440p Frame rates were weak at 9 FPS. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the GeForce GTX 580 SLI we get the impression that it is not going to be able to keep stable frame rates at all times at Ultra 1440p on modern games.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 580 SLI graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 580 SLI in your PC? This GeForce GTX 580 SLI card has 12 to 18 months of latest AAA game play left in it before upgrading should be considered

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 580 SLI? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB which is 69% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 895 games from the most demanding games today. Alternatively upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB which is 26% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 684 games from the most demanding games today.

GeForce GTX 580 SLI Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce GTX 580 SLI is a solution of two GeForce GTX 580 put together using NVIDIA'S SLI technology.
Check the page of GeForce GTX 580 to know more about its chip.
As usual, SLI relies a lot on proper driver support and may suffer from micro-stuttering in lower frame rates (below 30). Benchmarks indicate the performance is overall, is up to around 43% better than a single GeForce GTX 580 performing by itself but at times (depending whether or not the 3D game supports SLI or in the graphics driver) it performed worse than a single GeForce GTX 580. Expect this combination to draw up to 490 Watt though the average power consumption should be slightly lower.
Even the most demanding games will run at the highest settings.
