POV/TGT rolls out its latest Beast

Written by Slobodan Simic

Water cooled GTX 580

Point of view and the TGT team have announced its latest Beast series graphics card, the GTX 580 "Beast" that has a massive factory overclock and is cooled by a full cover water block.

The new GTX 580 Beast ends up overclocked to 855MHz for the GPU, 1710MHz for those 512 CUDA cores and 4104MHz for 1536MB of GDDR5 memory paired up with a 384-bit memory interface. The card needs one 8-pin and one 6-pin PCI-Express power connector.

In order to keep the beast chilled POV/TGT has decided to go for a 9mm full cover copper water block made by Aqua Computer. The card might have additional overclocking headroom with this water block but that solely depends on the entire water cooling setup.

The new GTX 580 Beast has already started to ship and has a recommended retail price set at €729.

that, and a full surface copper block would be a lot sweeter i think personally :)

at the end, it all comes down to your radiator and pump really..
so if you have a bigger area to route your water trough by making use of the full surface of the card, you might pull off a lower temp with a mainstream liquid cooling kit rather than spending a fortune on a bigger better pump and a 4x120mmx120mm fan radiator

It would be hard for them to make it much bigger than it is now, especially at 9 mm thick. That waterblock must weigh quite a bit and be pretty darn expensive. There's a limit to how much weight you should put on a card, before you risk warping your motherboard or screwing up your PCI-Express slot.

Why not make it single slot :lol: , could fit 7 in some boards :o . You'll only need a 2kw PSU, oh and your own power station, cause who's going to pay for all your folding at home :P

Antilles should beat this beast with ease. At least this is what we expect...
