Nvidia's dual 5x0 card comes in 2010

Written by Fuad Abazovic


So should Antilles
We got a fresh update on what happens after GTX 580 eventually launches. There should be a faster card, coming most likely in December 2010.

The new card is based on two GF100-derived cores, probably similar to the GF104, so we can only imagine the TDP of that card. Our educated guess for this time is at least 400W card, something that will get very hot indeed. It would appear that we are almost at the verge of a new era, where water cooling will be a must.

AMD also plans Antilles, Radeon HD 6970 dual Cayman card, and this one also looks to be quite a hot one. A GF100GX2 was on the roadmap for quite some time, but Nvidia never decided to release the card. We guess that chose to drop it because of its enormous TDP, courtesy of two GF100 chips.

So the launch is this year, which usually means December, but we know that super high end enthusiasts will wait to see who wins this round Radeon HD 6970 or Geforce GTX 5x0 GX2, before they make the buying decision.

This is going to be interesting, a dual card based on the GTX 580. That is going to run as hot as a stove. Nevertheless, Antilles TDP should be much lower than a dual GPU GTX 580. Good luck on both companies, the competition is good.

3 nVidia articles, all from Fuad, what a "surprise"...

If you think that it might be two GF104 then have we not seen that already?

Is this like the 490 that was supposed to come out a few months back, or do you have something solid this time?

400 W? Was someone high?

An 8-pin connector can supply 100 W, so the theoretical maximum is 350 W (two connectors and the PCI-E 2.0 slot). But no one would ever use that.

A dual GF104/GF114 with power optimizations is very likely and won't go over 300 W, but it'd still be better to choose a single GTX 580, or two 460/560 cards for SLI. Two cards will always be quieter than a single one with two GPUs.

In my opinion such a card is pointless with 580 coming.

You said this about the GTX4x0 series, and what's more is that there's no source for this news

Quoting Harry Lloyd:

Not to mention that 2 cards in SLI will always be faster too as the reference clock i am sure would be higher and would certainly allow much greater overclocking as the chips would run much cooler.

Who is this "WE" you speak of. Faud and Nick? Is there possibly another website anywhere that gets the same information?

I would hope that a dual 580 chip would beat a measly 6970. I suppose you MEANT a 6990.

So all the sudden nvidia can launch, not only one, but 3 cards from out of nowhere and release them all in less than 2 months. GTX580, GTX560, GTX580 x2? There is still no road-maps leaked anywhere that would indicate those cards would actually exist. GTX580 I can believe which is just a rehash of original Fermi. Rest of the paper dragons should go to 2011 using common sense or they are just re-brands.

I think GF104-384sp will be GTX560 and GF104-336 sp will still be GTX460
anyway, Dual GF104 is more possible
