Nvidia GeForce GTX 580

Good Prefix

Starting in 2011, Nvidia was a little behind AMD in preparing for his new champion to fight in the graphics card market this year.

However, unlike AMD who began to enter mainstream classes with a variant of his first, Nvidia entered the upper-class variant.

Yes, the GeForce GTX 580 variant is the first variant of Nvidia's prepared to fight for a place with its competitors. Similar to its predecessor, the GeForce GTX 480, this series includes variants of the most high.

Actually there is no significant change from the GeForce GTX 580. Graphics card is still using the base Fermi graphics chip that has been used previously in the series GTX 400. The specifications also tend to be similar to the GeForce GTX 480 series.

But of course there are improvements in some of the side that makes the GeForce GTX 580 is better than its predecessor. For example, the speed of a faster graphics core, memory speed is faster, and more stream processors.

Specifications Nvidia GeForce GTX 580 is roughly as follows.

This graphics card has a core speed of 772 MHz and 4000 MHz memory speed. Stream processor that has as many as 512, more if compared with 480 stream processors on the GTX 480. Memory interface is still similar to its predecessor, the 384-bit. Nvidia graphics chip also rename their Fermi-coded into GF110 GF100 for variant GTX 500.

In fact, it was rumored that the actual specifications of the GeForce GTX 580 is what is the real Fermi that should be invested on the GeForce GTX 480 first. But since that time there was a slight problem, in particular about power consumption and heat, GeForce GTX 480 was launched with a specification that is more benign.

It seems Nvidia has managed to overcome these problems so was born the GeForce GTX 580.

We've done some testing on GeForce GTX 580 graphics card and the result was very satisfactory.

Although on paper the difference specification GTX 580 and GTX 480 is not too much, it turns out the performance generated by the GTX 580 is far superior. The performance is still superior to its competitors like the Radeon HD 5870 and HD 5850 (or newer Radeon HD 6870 and HD 6850).

Want to know what kind of performance, consider the following test results table. (Steven Irwandi)
