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.
