Geforce GTX580 launch on 9th Nov, sampling now

Written by Fuad Abazovic
geforce

772MHz 512 Shader part

We got a few confirmations of recently leaked specs and facts about Geforce GTX 580 posted here.

The new card is sampling to journalists right now. It should launch on Tuesday 9th but it's unclear at what time. It looks like it will be the morning hours of Tuesday, November 9th.

A few important facts are that the card works at 772MHz core, has 512 shaders and 2200MHz memory. It should also be somewhat quieter than the previous GTX 480.

Our sources are also claiming that the mini shader cores got slightly improved and that the card works and performance just as it was intended for original Fermi GF100, Geforce GTX 480 card.

You can look at this card as Fermi done right and we can also confirm that the card is scheduled to launch before AMD's Cayman-based Radeon HD 6950 and HD 6970 parts.

The fun in the graphics world is just about to start, as there are still a few more interesting cards to launch until the end of 2010.

LOL, "more silent".

You guys crack me up. There is absolutely nothing good to say about this card what so ever so you have to abuse the English language instead!

I am so looking forward to hearing how the nVidia PR team are going to spin that getting 2 or 3 extra fps constitutes Next Generation in graphics cards!!!

Anything about the number of TMUs? Is it 64 or 128 after all?

You're joking right?

2200Mhz memory?? DDR3 right (or are they using sub 1cent DDR5 memory modules that cannot achieve a higher frequency)?

I'm a bit tired of your "typos" or ... best said ... sh**y work. For once spend 1 minute and correct your articles.

Another typo: "indented" should be "intended". Must admit im looking forwards to the Cayman cards rather than this.

It would be nice to see that Gtx 580 gets out before Cayman, but after what happend with Fermi i wouldnt bet on that.

But stop being a fanboys seriosly guys, i maybe love AMD more but the truth is that we all need Gtx 580 card out.

Im trying to think what will be the price of Cayman (or OMG x2) if the Gtx 580 doesnt come out, and AMD will have monopol that cant be good 4 us we neeed lower prices.

After many months since Fermi's launch and they finally "Got it right." All I can say is WOW!(sarcasm) So when they charged 500$ for the 480 people were paying top dollar for a half baked card. Don't get me wrong we don't need a monopoly and I do like the fact that this desperate attempt to stay alive will help keep AMD's prices down, The fact still remains that this is just sad on Nvidia's part. For the premiums they ask for their cards they should be "Done Right" the first damn time and then "Done Better" afterwards. Pffft get your stuff together Nvidia. I did not buy the last 3 generations of your cards to watch you miserably fall apart like this. 69xx series it is for me this time around.
(Edit) I am putting my 460 up for sale in a week and pre ordering 6970 ASAP!

384 bit bus, 192 GB/s, what is your problem?

Looking at the specs (512 shaders compared to 480 for the GTX480) I seriously question if the name "580" is justified.

Why not rebrand the GTX480 to "GTX480.a" (a for alpha) and the GTX580 to "GTX480.b" (b for beta) ... and wait one more year for the final, bug-free version ;-)

So, the plot summary is that you decide what to buy without consulting any review.

No, I wont support these standards is all. If and when Nvidia gets their ducks in a row I will come back but this sub par approach is the final straw for me. Forget the reviews, it's about not rushing out products and charging a mint for them. I honestly want Nvidia to suffer this time around so maybe they heighten their standards for their next release. AMD clearly outshined them this time around in every way. So my money goes to the winners ;-) Not to mention non of the games released these days even need a high end GPU. 6970 will suffice for a long time to come ;-)
