Galaxy GTX 580 becomes real with immense benchmarks

The new GTX580 from Nvidia has finally been benchmarked and pictured, albeit on chinese tech forum OCQQ.

We at eTeknix thought that it would be a good idea to translate and summarise exactly what is being said about the GTX 580 and its real-world benchmarks.

The first model to be publicly benchmarked, that we can see, is branded by Galaxy and it features the new GF110 core with 512 stream processors, a default core clock of 772MHz, a shader clock of 1544MHz and 1536MB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 4008MHz on a 384-bit memory interface.

As we can notice, the numbers by default are better than the previous GF100 cards and judging by the size of the box, the card would seem to be quite large.

The GTX580 features 2 DVI connections and a single HDMI connection. The same style layout that we’ve seen on previous Fermi based cards.

The card does come with some included accessories, from the looks of things, it seems that a DVI > VGA converter and possibly even a HDMI or DVI cable.

As we expected, this is a power hungry card, and the power connectors needed for this card is a set of 6-pin and 8-pin connectors.

PCI-Express interface as expected, and a subtle colour scheme on the cooler.

The PCB also follows the same colour scheme of the rest of the card.

    That thing is a BEASTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT and power hungry, yet runs cooler than i expected.

    Lets see how the 6970 will compete with this new single card king. :$

  3. buburuza72 says: let`s call AMD and its will be quite a fight between those 2. let`s bet who gets the gold?

  4. tilica says:

    As usual sometimes AMD, sometimes Nvidia, they keep the "crown" for a bit, then again the other gets it. The only thing that bothers me is the price. Both sides.

  5. theothersun says:

    The price is to be expected, especially because the products just came out with spectacular results. I'm not the kind of person to go out and buy an expensive high-end graphics card when it first comes out. I am the kind of person to buy a graphics card that suits my needs. Hardcore gamers with money will buy the best graphics card, and ATI AND NVIDIA knows that, which is one of the reasons why the prices are so goddamn high! :$

  6. buburuza72 says:

    same here. but when you buy something new (for you) that was launched 1 year ago, then you realise that 1 or more new generation of products had been released already.

  7. theothersun says:

    Unfortunately, that is true, that is why I try to take my time while looking to purchase any computer hardware. But for this super powerful and expensive GTX 580, I wouldn't buy it for at least a 1.5 year.. If someone's willing to trade after it becomes obsolete, then I'll barter.On a side note, GTX 580 in SLI is pure pwnage. XD

  8. tilica says:

    1.5 years? I think maybe more. With that card, present games and future ones from 2011, 2012 i guess it will be enough especially with that amount of memory.

  9. theothersun says:

    Sorry, I meant to say that after about 1.5 years, there will be cards much better, so if I buy one, it won't be until then — when it's cheaper.

  10. thebigbadwolf says:

    I'd love to get hold of a GTX 580 but its just sooo much money at the moment 🙁

  11. buburuza72 says:

    the present generation maybe will get cheaper but those cards will cost the exact money the "just launched" cards…

  12. theothersun says:

    Here's the first gameplay video of the GTX 580 running Crysis at max settings including AA[video <a href="http://]<br />Still can't get 60 fps on a single gpu… =/

  13. buburuza72 says:

    these guys don`t drive that thing too good but i must say it looks like a masterpiece. i want it!

  14. theothersun says:

    It is a masterpiece, but it's very expensive; $500. It would be wise to wait for the AMD 6900 series before deciding on purchasing the GTX 580.
