Nvidia confirms the GTX 580

Written by Slobodan Simic
geforce

Shows up at Nvidia.com


The guys from Geek3d.com managed to find the GTX 580 on Nvidia's website and it looks like the big green slipped its existence on the 3D Vision System Requirements page.

According to the recent rumours, the Geforce GTX 580 should be based on 40nm GF110 GPU that should have 512 CUDA Cores, 2GB of GDDR5 memory and should appear sometimes by the end of this year. Nvidia has planed to push this card against AMD Cayman based cards.

The Geforce GTX 580 appeared here, but we are pretty sure that Nvidia will take it off in a matter of minutes. In case that happens, the guys from Techconnect.com have a screenshot ready. You can find it here.

To be fair we barely know anything about Cayman

i don`t care just want to see some card that kicks ati`s ass so the freaking prices eventually go down a bit ati became expensive for its performance and nvidia does not reply with nothing performance wise ...i hate expected more from this fermi well nvidia does not give a damn about competition..

Haa ha ha.... their need SUN fusion reactor like Mr. Octopus did in spiderman 1.. but this time no any failure because GTX580.

"that should have 512 CUDA Cores"

Only? 768 (384 x 2) are the only way to compete against cayaman. But this would be an 670mm2 chip on 40nm...

Thats true...But we do know how gtx480 performed with 512 Cuda cores...5% increase?as I remember...We shall see tomorrow how Barts end up and then we can estimate the performance of Cayman...

Great, more fuel for the price war! If of course the card doesn't get delayed and/or is a hot, power hungry pile of fail.

I see you are not so confident with your 512bit bus anymore???

There are 2 ways to look at the GTX580, yes it only increases shader count by 6% over the GTX480 so you could say the performance isn't going to be all that but nVidia showed with the GTX460 that they can improve the core architecture so if it’s actually just a bigger 460 then we should see performance increase of 20% possibly 30% over the 480.

Will this compete with Cayman? For me i don't think so. When you look at what AMD have squeezed out of the new Bart cores and then multiple them up to the much bigger Cayman will just be too much for the 580. I might wrong.

What will be interesting is 2x 460's or even 475's. Should be around the same price.

Great! You could connect your water heater to it! One stone two birds.

Father: Son, can you play some Crysis cause I need to take a bath?
Son: I have to study dad.
Father: Screw your studies. Play Crysis.
