Asus planning dual 580 graphics card



/ 6 years ago

Asus has been designing and developing a dual GTX 580 video card that will feature two full GF110 graphics processors unlike the GTX 590 which contains slightly cut down versions of these chips.

As a result of the massive power requirements the card will be equipped with a 19 phase VRM and super alloy power technology. The card will be cooled using the direct CU II technology which is expected to make the card consume 3 PCI-E slots worth of space. More news won’t be available until Computex 2011 at Taiwan in June.

In addition to the dual 580 card Asus is also planning a GTX 580 Matrix edition video card. This card will come in factory default and factory overclocked versions. Both of these cards will also feature the 19 phase VRM and super alloy power technology.

The specs for the Matrix GTX 580:

  • 512 CUDA cores
  • Core clock of 782MHz for the standard version or 816MHz for the Platinum
  • 1.5GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 4008MHz on a 384 bit interface

The matrix edition in essence will be the cream of the crop of GTX 580 cards.

The key things about these two new products are improved direct CU cooling from Asus which is growing in size from 2 Slots to 3 slots (we also first saw this 3 Slot video card on the HD 6950 Direct CU II). And new higher quality power delivery systems and components to increase overclocking capabilities and allow the GPU’s to run cooler and more efficiently. In addition to this they have voltage check points for precise monitoring which can be combined with the GPU Tweak UI interface provided with the cards.

    Sounds like a beast of a card 😀 Hope the PCB holds up :p

    beast of a cooler and looks like a PCI slot breaker :p!

    Thats just the cooler for the single 580 not the dual

    :eek:well i dread to think what the cooler for the dual card will have to be :eek:!im not complaining tho, as i love custom cooled cards 😎

    Cool and efficient, but I wonder what the noise levels are like.

    EPIC! lol Triple slot, lots of heat mmmmmm. winter will be upon us soon i guess haha

    i doubt they are too loud tbh.asus will undoubtedly use large efficient fans that wont have to spin at stupidly high RPM just to keep the card cool.thats what i hope anyway :p!

    Going by the Asus card that is sat quite literally right next to me at the moment, I can happily say that its not noisy at all. Even under full load (ie running Furmark) the fans have not spun up over 40%.What the dual 580 is going to be like though, we can only but guess for now until we hopefully get one here for testing.

    Thanks man!

    Hopefully it will have more stability than the GTX590 and not blow up if you try and overclock :confused:But at least you know the card will keep you warm when winter comes 😉
