EVGA Geforce GTX 580 pictured, listed at $499

Written by



ASUS, PNY, MSI boards show up as well 

We have come across a few early Geforce GTX 580 listings featuring ASUS and EVGA boards. The ASUS ENGTX580/2DI/1536MD5 appeared on Amazon with a $519 price tag, but the listing was pulled shortly after it went public. However, it's relatively easy to google the board designation and find a few other listings, ranging from $519 to $545.

A US retailer is currently listing EVGA' s Geforce GTX 580 at $499 and the card should be available starting November 9, or tomorrow. We've already talked about the Geforce GTX 580 specifications in great length, but here's a brief reminder. The Fermi-done-right Geforce GTX 580 is clocked at 772MHz, it features 512 CUDA cores and packs 1.5GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 4008MHz and capable of delivering 192.4 GB/sec worth of bandwidth.

Not to be outdone by their southern neighbors, a couple of Canadian retailers have listed the PNY Geforce GTX 580 at prices starting at CAD 566. Yet another Canadian store has also leaked MSI's Geforce GTX 580 board at CAD 568. Sadly, we didn't manage to find any pictures of PNY or MSI boards, so the EVGA pic will have to do for now.

This card is pictured without the High-Flow Bracket, something I don't understand, considering the H-F bracket helps in air flow....????

I think all taxes are included in the price.

USD has gone down, its practically on a par with CAD, so it seems unlikely the boards could cost 20% more than in the US.

Just Google the listings and check it out.

Faster and less power consumption than a HD6970 - only a fool would go with AMD.

At what time GMT will the NDA be pulled? I wanna see for myself how much better it is compared to GTX 480 and if it outperforms the HD 5970 (in overall performance) by a big margin. BTW i must say that all nVidia fans convenietly forget the existance of HD 5970....does it hurt to remember this card? After all untill GTX 580 this might have been the fastest card on the planet for almost a year now.

Not sure about the NDA deadline, we don't sign NDAs so we really don't pay that much attention.

Also, the 5970 was and still is the fastest card, no reason to say "might have been", it one of those things fanboys love to hate... Whaddya call it... Oh yeah, a fact.

5970 is a two-GPU card. 580 is not. Thats comparing apples and oranges.

5970 costs twice as much as a 480 and needs twice as much power.

Put two 480s in one PC and it kicks every 5970s ass.
