The GeForce GTX 580 SLI is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.
GeForce GTX 580 SLI is capable of DirectX 11 gaming requirements.
We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2021 popular games. This short GeForce GTX 580 SLI game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 282 games in todays list.
Running at 1080p this card gets a weak frame rate from Resident Evil 8 with 12 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at FIFA 22 which is predicted to return a good 64 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Dying Light 2 which we predict will get a weak 5 FPS.
Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we ran Resident Evil 8 on the GeForce GTX 580 SLI to see that it got a weak set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra results at 1440p - L: 24FPS, M: 19FPS, H: 13FPS, U: 9FPS. Another popular game to investigate at 1440p with this card was FIFA 22 which we predicted will be reasonable in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 49 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Dying Light 2 where its predicted Ultra 1440p Frame rates were weak at 4 FPS. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the GeForce GTX 580 SLI we get the impression that it is likely in need of some graphical option tweaks when trying to play 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?
