Nvidia's GTX 580 detailed

Written by Slobodan Simic

To launch on November 9th

According to a new leak, Nvidia's GF110 based GTX 580 should launch next Tuesday, November 9th. Although the specs have been rumoured for quite some time, we can now be pretty sure that the card will end up with 512 SPs, 128 TMUs and should work at clocks that are significantly higher than on the GF100-based GTX 480.

The card should end up clocked at 772MHz for the GPU, 1544MHz for Shaders and 4.0Gbps for 1536MB of GDDR5 memory paired up with a 384-bit interface. Another interesting piece of information is the actual TDP of the new card. Although it has more CUDA Cores and a higher GPU clock, the card has a slightly lower TDP of 244W. We still don't know if Nvidia is still talking about typical load power, as the GTX 480 or GF100 had 250W TDP, which was actualy a bit closer to 300W under full load.

In addition to these specs, Chinese site PCOnline leaked, what appears to be, a Nvidia performance summary slide that puts the upcoming GTX 580 against GTX 480 and AMD's Radeon HD 5870 card. Of course, these slide should be taken with a grain of salt as these are still to be confirmed. In any case, the situation should be quite clear once Nvidia officially launches this card on November 9th.

Guess the deal breaker is whether they fixed current leakage problems like they did in the 460.

And why didn't they call it the 485?

Only a slight increase over the GTX480, sounds like they finally fixed the 512 core chips after a year of work, if that's the case then it really isn't worthy of the name GTX580, it should be named something more appropriate e.g. GTX490, GTX512 etc

Sound like a good idea to just avoid this lineup of cards all together until next year when they actually have a completely good redesign of their products. I favor no side but this time around for me Nvidia has me staying far away.

GTX580 or HD6970 - I will buy the card with the best performance / watt ratio.

Listen to all the AMD nuthuggers, your nuthuggery knows no bounds. So know ye this, just as Intels lowly Core i5 760 is better than EVERYTHING in AMD's inventory, so to will be the GTX 580! It will not be a contest. :D

Oh 512 shader GTX580, your glory will be short lived, the HD6970 will eat you up.

Some say it still has 64 TMUs, but I think it'd fail that way. I needs more if it's supposed to be a high-end gaming card.

Let's hope for 96 or 128.
