Nvidia shows some GTX 580 details

New cooler detailed

During the PDX LAN event, Nvidia's Tom Petersen showed some details regarding Nvidia's upcoming GTX 580 card. Nvidia went and completely detailed the new vapor chamber cooler and the new Alien vs. Triangles tech demo, all on the new GTX 580.

The cooler is quite interesting this time as Nvidia decided to go for Vapor chamber cooling technology and made some quite bold claims regarding the noise output of the upcoming card. The cooler itself is pretty simple, at least if you had a chance to see one of the vapor chamber based coolers, as Sapphire did that a couple of times on its AMD based cards.

According to the slides shown by Tom Petersen, the new GTX 580 is not only cooler and quieter than the GTX 480, it is even quieter than the not so quiet GTX 285. The new cooler should keep the new card well cooled and at around 47dBA in gaming scenario. This is a quite an impressive result considering that Nvidia didn't waste time to point out that this will be the fastest DirectX 11 card.

The new tech demo is all about tesselation, something that Nvidia really wants to be seen. The new tech demo is rendered in real time with tesselation and made by Nvidia team. It will be quite interesting to see this tech demo on AMD's upcoming Cayman cards.

Last but not least, Nvidia also showed the Call of Duty: Black Ops running on its GTX 580 card. Despite the fact that this is one of the upcoming games that a lot of gamers are quite keen to play, the most interesting fact is that it was run on the GTX 580 card and it looks like the new GPU gives a pretty smooth gameplay.

Because nVidia GTX580 is so hot... that why their need VAPOOR-X technology from Sapphire to cool down the SUN FUSION. Sapphire is just optimize it for Radeon, so surely nVidia need pay royalty to Sapphire due to no need waste time to design the cooler.

usually vapour chambers are supposed to be for custom cooling

REALLY....why would you want to see a demo developed by Nvidia which plays to it's hardwares strengths and is completely unrepresentativ e of real life game engines played on AMD hardware?....other than to get some kind of false affirmation of your nvidia bias.

Yeah nuclear reactors was not supposed to be used at homes too, until the fermi's got out.

In the past, there were no coolers on GPUs.

Some years later, small heatsinks and fans placed on them.

Again some years later, heatsinks and fans got larger, thus louder.

Again a few years later, liquid cooling systems placed on GPUs.

Now vapor chambers starting to be widely used for being cheaper and more practicable.

In the future we might see chemical reaction based coolers on GPUs.

They are evolving with technology, what's wrong with it?

So apparently its more efficient than the 480 yet they still needed to improve the cooler?

And that; Who the 1st discover will be own it pattern number and if the others want to use it.... they must pay for that technology otherwise... owner will sue them... just like bluetooth case.

i take it they'll have no problems reaching proper clock this time round? lol must be a good overclocker too...
i wonder though... what custom coolers will be like (other than water-blocks)

Apparently 580 draws more current than 480 so they improved the cooler to decrease the huge power consumption. (as temperature increases so does power consumption on chips). The new cooler is superior but more expensive (580 will be even more expensive than 480).

Sapphire does not oun the rights to vapor cooling technology. Nvidia can use it free of charge.

Also i agree with canerpense. Cooling systems change. Look at CPU's they went from no cooling to passive heat sinks then fans. then they go bigger. Then all copper, Copper with heat pipes.
Things change.
