Here are some of the first pictures of Galaxy’s yet-to-be-released GeForce GTX 580 given out by the folks at HardOCP.
While some manufactures just change the heatsink and call it their own product, some doing as little as changing the sticker, other try to improve, or better, modify reference card to appeal to a certain public.
Galaxy have taken their own approach to a reference GTX 580, changing it with their own display logic giving this beefed up graphics card a total resolution of 5760×1080, which translates into three 1920×1080 displays connected to this single card.
Display outputs have also been redone, featuring three mini-HDMI and a full size DisplayPort. The management of the display is taken care of by Galaxy’s own EZY display setting software.
As you most certainly noticed by now, Galaxy have changed the heatsink as well, adding a number of heatpipes, the GTX 580 chip and components are now cooled by three 80mm fans, all of which are encased in an acrylic frame.
No great graphics card comes without a good lighting show, Galaxy has indeed studded the frame with LEDs, giving it a groovy blue glow when in use.
